Glow by Beth Kery is the exciting sequel to the story depicted in “Glimmer” and continues to follow Alice Reed, a counselor for Camp Durand who has risen above her humble beginnings as a methamphetamine manufacturer’s daughter. Her searingly carnal relationship with Dylan Fall, the head of Durand Enterprises, continues to evolve, as does the shift in her attitude about the facts that are gradually being revealed about her history. Unfortunately, as Alice begins to accept that some of the memories she is uncovering may be proof that an age-old mystery is going to be solved, evidence also begins to mount that the danger that Dylan has been trying to warn her about may also be very real and she will have to discover who she can truly trust with her heart and her well-being.
There is nothing I like more than a captivating story that combines a sensual and arousing romance and a edge-of-your-seat suspense tale that keeps you racing through the pages to find out what is going to happen. This erotic mystery did a fantastic job of keeping me anxious about the outcome even as it continued to keep me mesmerized as the intense sexual relationship deepened between the main characters. I like the way the bonds cemented and matured between the disparate kids on Alice’s team just as her own growth was fostered during the events that take place in this book. The hints that are gradually revealed about the mystery are delicious additions and the combination of vulnerability and power that Dylan displays make him a much more appealing character for me and I found myself cheering at each milestone that is accomplished. This book would undoubtedly be pretty confusing to read unless one was familiar with “Glimmer” but I think that the buildup from that book to this one was deftly done and ensures that these will be added to my keeper shelves!
