Charlie and Nat must expose a public official for who he truly is before he is elected prime minister in the riveting and romantic sequel to the explosive thriller, In a Split Second.

Nat and Charlie are on the run and in more danger than ever before. Nowhere is safe and they can’t trust anyone but each other. Roman Riley’s networks could discover them at any time, so Charlie believes their only option is to go undercover in Riley’s team, but Nat doesn’t agree. So Charlie sneaks away to pursue her plan alone. 

Nat is desperate to find Charlie, but his family is relying on him, and he can’t leave them behind. Even if Nat and Charlie can find each other again, could being together be even more dangerous than being apart?

Every Second Counts is an action packed, non-stop adventure, mystery/thriller and romance. This story will keep you on the edge of your seat until you finish the very. last. page!

It's the second book in the series; the sequel to In A Split Second. While this book can be read as a stand alone novel, I wouldn't recommend it. I would recommend reading the books in order as Every Second Counts starts right off where the first book ended and it can get confusing if you haven't read In A Split Second first. 

Charlie and Nat were engaging and  likable characters. The plot was built for action, action and more action so while it was a bit fantastical that teens would be caught up in national and world affairs, the story worked and was interesting and engaging.  

I found this novel to not be my cup of tea but that doesn't mean it is not a good book. It's just means that it is not a good fit for me. If you like action with a bit of romance and a lot of mystery/thriller, this book will be perfect for you!

3 Stars!

Thank you to Simon and Schuster  as well as Edelweiss for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review.
