Make You Mine (Nine Circles, #2)Make You Mine by Jackie Ashenden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Nine Circles series from Jackie Ashenden. The plot picks up where the first book left off. The members of the Nine Circles are delving further into the mystery of the Lucky Seven Casino. This time Alex is front and center and we find out exactly what happened that fateful night that changed his life forever. The very foundation of the Nine Circles, ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’, is put to the test when the secrets of Alex’s past threaten his friends’ future. All the while his steadfast bodyguard, Katya Ivanova, is by his side. Her duty is to protect Alex from all danger including himself. In the end, they end up saving each other because they both needed to let go of the past in hopes of having a future worth living.

This installment in the series was leaps and bounds above the first. While the cast of characters is the same, they had more depth, personality, and realism. Jackie Ashenden gives her characters significant flaws but allows them to learn from their mistakes making them easy to relate to. Make you Mine is a great read for those looking for emotion, action, and romance.
