The characters felt flat.
This book has so much potential but for me I just couldn't enjoy it.

Lexi is recovering from a traumatic sexual abuse and wants to find the strength to love on and lead a full life and meet someone. Cruz is part of Cunningham security and has an interest in Lexi.
When they finally push past the awkward first date and get involved we see just how good these two are together.
I love that there is no magic fix for what’s happened to her. Cruz works hard to make her feel safe, show her that she is protected and that she had the power. His patience and manner toward her is fantastic.
Lexi works hard to push her boundaries and puts her trust in Cruz and goes from strength to strength.
The case Cruz is working on for his company threatens to undo all the good work.
Really enjoyed seeing how things played out between them and loved the had their own HEA
I have always loved books about survivors of all types, but those about women who’ve overcome sexual assault have always held a special place in my heart. As soon as I read the blurb for this book I was all in. I can not tell you how happy I was to see so much of Lexi’s healing arc in this book. Often romance novels seem to have people be magically healed by finding love, so seeing how hard and how many things Lexi was doing to leave her rape behind her was wonderful.
Cruz was fantastic with Lexi. His compassion and patience went so far to help her learn how to trust men again, in particular, him. I loved how carefully he helped her find all the things she thought she’d lost after she’d been violated so horribly. His support in those moments when she felt she had no strength was sublime.
My wishes for this book are many, unfortunately, but I think most of them could be solved with a heavier editorial hand. Most of the tell-not-show aspects of Obsessed were absent from this book, though there were still a few cringe-worthy moments that need to be addressed. I also feel like Lexi’s reaction to the climax of the book felt completely wrong, given what she’d been through, I absolutely could not get on board with it. Again, there were editorial issues, though not as plentiful as the first book in this series. Finally, all the ‘L’ names: Levi, Lexi, Leni (Lennox), Luke, Logan, Lorenzo, though not present in this book, there was also a Leah in this series, and those are just the names I could recall off the top of my head. It just felt strange to have so many similar names in one novel. Especially all the Le_i names, more than once I misread a name and had to do a double-take to make sure I knew who I was reading about.
Overcome is the second book in AK Evans Cunningham Security series. This series is a spinoff of her Everything series, and several of those characters make an appearance in the Cunningham Security series. Each book in both series are interconnected standalones and do not have to be read in order. However, if you’re anything like me, you’ll have so many questions about the other couples the desire to read the other books will be strong. Overcome is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Lexi and Cruz.
AK Evans has improved greatly from the first book I read by her. A lot of the distrust of her readers I felt in that book was absent in this one. That being said, I feel like there is still a lot of room for growth and she would benefit from a stronger editorial team. Her storytelling is compelling enough that I can see myself picking up more books from her, in hopes to see continued improvement in her writing.
