This book was so worth the wait. Since we read that he managed to survive being shot by Liv. In book one we only knew him as heartless and cruel. Essentially a product of the drug addict mother who raised him and psychotic father who brought him to the life of sex trafficking. within the heart of a man laid a scared little boy. who knew that was what a closed off agoraphobic needed. In the time they spent together. They managed to heal each other and remove those lingering securities. I'm so happy we saw Van's POV more importantly I'm so happy that things worked out in the end. Even though he was kidnapper, rapist, and stalker hearing about his childhood just ripped my heart to pieces. Which lead me to fall in love with him right along with Amber.
