Title : Constant
Author : Rachel Higginson
Release Date : November 16, 2017
Fifteen years ago I met Sayer Wesley. I fell in love with him. I promised I would never leave him. I swore nothing could break us apart.
Five years ago I broke my promise. I ran away. I took the one secret that could destroy us both and disappeared.
Five days ago I thought I saw him.
I knew it was impossible. Sayer was locked away, serving a deserved sentence in federal prison. He couldn’t find me.
He wouldn’t find me. I was too good at hiding. Too good at surviving.
Because if Sayer ever found me, there would be hell to pay for a plethora of sins. The worst of which, he didn’t even know about yet.
Five hours ago, I told myself I was crazy.
Five minutes ago, I saw him again.
Five seconds ago, I was too late.

This is only my second Rachel Higginson book and this was so different from the other book I read by her.
Constant is an enjoyable read and one that anyone who is a fan of a romantic suspense should read. The storyline is captivating and the characters are engaging. This is a sexy and thrilling read that will keep you turning the pages until the very end.
As I said, I really enjoyed this book but for some reason I felt it was missing something, I can’t put my finger on in it. I think what my real issue is, is that I felt the story dragged a little for me in spots. I also wish this would’ve been told in Dual POV. I really wanted Sayer’s POV and I think that would’ve added another element to the story to help me fully connect with this couple.
Constant is the first book in Rachel’s newest Duet. It is NOT a standalone novel and there is a Cliffhanger ending, so be warned. If you don’t like cliffhangers then I would wait until February when the second book is due to release. I am looking forward to seeing where this story goes from here. I have some theories and I want to see if I am correct.
Rachel takes us in to the underground world of lies, betrayal, conning and deceit. While also showing us the romantic side to two young characters who are brought into a life they didn’t really want. I enjoyed watching Sayer and Caro grow as characters. I thought the way the author wrote the book, from both past and present time was an interesting way of laying out this story. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil this for other readers.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Rachel’s books or if you are looking for that crime family story that also has a bit of romance to it. See how Caro and Sayer navigate through this world and see if they can come out on the other side better off.
