Leading a company through any ONE of these events would be career making and interesting…to lead a company the size of mid-sized country through ALL of them (and many more) is mind blowing.
Cons: None for me except I didn’t know this was a second book in a series and I would have liked to have read the first book beforehand! 🤦🏾♀️ You don’t have to

A lot of twists and turns with this one as Brown leans heavily on thrills and goes a little light in the romance area. I wasn’t disappointed whatsoever.

Full Throttle #BookReview
Overall, I loved Full Throttle. All the stories were horrific in that Hill/King style of twisting our reality against us in the worst possible way. I was throughly frightened!
