Willow ~ Review

The Metcalfes #2
By Ronie Kendig

She always felt she had to prove to the rest of the family she deserved to bare the Metcalfe name. But here in Africa, she finally has found a place where she belongs.

Chijioke never thought he'd have to choose between his mission or the woman who wasn't supposed to be there. This mission could cost him his soul and his life, but he vows to keep the sister of his friend safe. Now, if she'll only let him do so.

** This book is not a clean read, nor is it a gentle read. It will leave you unsettled and uncomfortable, which I believe is the whole point. This book, Willow, like the previous book in the series - Stone, takes us into the world of human trafficking, and it is anything but pretty. As you make your way through the pages, it will touch and break your heart. Which it should. All too often we live in a protected world and never grasp the evil that exists.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.

**This book is a PG-13+ or M rating due to the nature of the subject being covered - human trafficking and the abuse those taken face.

About the Book:
To save her, he must become the evil he fights.

Aftercare specialist Willow Metcalfe joined Mission: Liberate Everyone to help trafficking survivors navigate the healing process. When MiLE’s Obiora Compound is attacked by the Nigerian mafia, she’s taken hostage. Against nightmarish odds, she and the victims attempt an escape—and are thwarted.

A decade after leaving his beloved homeland, Chijioke “Chiji” Okorie returns to find his sister and fight for his own country. Believing a global trafficking ring behind her abduction and a string of kidnappings across Nigeria, he goes undercover to find the head of the serpent and his sister. Chiji is stunned to discover among the hostages a familiar face—a friend’s sister, Willow. The woman he vowed years ago to marry.

The man who has interfered with her escape attempts seems … familiar, kind—but Willow knows better. He reeks of the warrior ethos that has devoured many a good man. Engaged in an impossible battle and losing at every turn, Chiji is determined to complete his missions—all of them. Even if it kills him.
