I admired Sloan. I found her character compelling. There may be persons who would have negative things to say about her choice to stay with Asa, but I get why she did it. Her willingness to put her brother’s care above her physical and mental safety showed her selfless nature. Finding an alternative means of helping her brother seemed impossible. I admit there were a few times I wished she would fight back, but then I reconsidered knowing that to do so could prove to be more harmful.Luke may be cute, but when it came to police work, he made stupid mistakes. I could probably blame his mistakes on the fact that he had fallen in love, but as a cop in a dangerous situation, he should never allow his emotions to dominate his thinking.In my years of reading, I have encountered a few crazy characters but Asa proved the craziest of the bunch. The things he did to keep Sloan with him was creepy. He gets off on other people’s fear and for him love is all about control.
The shocking revelation about Asa’s past helped me to understand how he became the person he now, but I still did not like him. I felt sympathy for him as a child but there was none for the adult version. He may have been crazy, but he was very smart and that made him dangerous.
I enjoyed seeing Sloan and Carter together. He may not have been good at his duties as an undercover cop, but when it came to loving Sloan, he excelled.
There were some intense moments when they were together. Asa monitored her every move and so I feared for them whenever they were together. I kept wondering if Asa would catch them together and feared the outcome if he did.
The story took me on a nerve-wracking journey. It covered a myriad of disturbing topics that may not be for everyone. If you are turned off by abusive situations, then you may want to avoid this book. However, if you are like me and like stories that are dark and suspenseful then you will enjoy Too Late.

I’m a Hoover fan, so I would definitely give this one a try. Hugs, RO
This sounds like such a page turner! I like stories where a cop goes undercover, and the added element of the crazy drug dealer, Asa, as well as a love story between, makes this sound like such a great read!

I have a love hate relationship with NA novels but this one sounds like it’s my type. I miss your posts Nadene hopefully I’ll be back soon xo
Now, that does sound complex. Neat how she let you get to know all the characters and their motivations.
Asa sounds like a dangerous character and I love crazy characters in my reads. This sounds good.
Great review. I have not heard of this one!
Great review. I’d not heard of it before now.
This is an author I’ve always been intrigued by but the romance puts me off.

Coho is amazing no matter what genre she’s writing.
I keep meaning to read CoHo
Great review, although I know I can’t handle her books.
I bought this one last month but in French as the cover was prettier and I’m curious to read it too
I’m trying to think if I’ve read this one or not and for the life of me I can’t remember! I usually devour her books so I’m not sure how I would have missed this one although it does sound pretty intense so I might have passed on it. I’ll have to go look on Goodreads now to see LOL. Wonderful review!
