Safe At Last (Slow Burn, #3) by Maya Banks *Verna's Review*

They say young love doesn’t last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace—his “Gracie”—was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing.

Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.

Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He’ll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they’ll never be torn apart again.

Safe At Last by Maya Banks is an emotional journey that every reader should add to their book journeys. I absolutely loved this book even though it broke my heart more than once. The love that Zack and Anna have is a once in a lifetime kind of love and it absolutely tore me to shreds when that love was lost for so many years. You must read this book if you are a romantic and love a book that takes you to that point of no turning back. There are so many twists and turns and so much turmoil that the characters endure to find out the truth and understand what each of them went through.

Anna is such a sweet and wonderful young lady. I loved watching her grow in this story. She went through a horrific event and even though it broke her she found a way to cope with life and then when Zack comes back into her life she finds herself fighting to keep it together and fighting to make her life better. Not to lose what little she has kept together. My heart broke for her through the whole book and I couldn’t help but hope Zack got through to her.

Zack is a REMARKABLE man. My heart was so sad for him when he finds out what really happened to Anna. That his search was finally over, but he would never be the same again after what he finds out. You will find yourself in LOVE with him and rooting for him to finally get through to Anna. I loved that their chemistry and Love for one another overcame everything in the story. But don’t get excited yet. By the end of the book you will be on the edge of your seat with the turn of events. This book has everything a book nerd like me needs. It has romance, love, and even a touch of suspense that leaves you scared and hoping that Zack and Anna can find each other and make it out alive.
