Review of Safe at Last (Slow Burn #3) by Maya Banks



The third book in the beloved #1 bestselling author’s sexy, romantic suspense Slow Burn series…

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.



Zack played out as such a mystery in the last book. Quiet, sexy, strong and you knew there was something haunting him but had no idea what it was. So when I found out the 3rd book would be his story I was very excited to get my hands on what made him the way he was. This book was a tease. I couldn’t tell you how many times I said to myself just tell me already!!! I need to know!!! From the beginning I knew who was behind the horrible thing that happened but I had no idea what that horrible thing was! Every time I thought I was finally going to find out I wouldn’t!!! All that did was keep me wanting more. And believe me when it is finally revealed your heart will ache for Zack and Gracie. Of course the rest of the team of DSS is amazing and I love when they come back in and we read about them too. The only thing I felt like I needed was a Prologue with 5 years later!! I need to know more about Zack and Gracie!! I want to know how they are doing!! This book wont disappoint you, this series wont disappoint you. All 3 books kept me on my toes! I give this book 4.75 stars!
