Sometimes love can turn ugly.
Sometimes love can hurt.
Sometimes the best thing to do is escape!
Leaving everything behind Izzy Parker escaped the hell that had been her life. Driving as far west as she could, to get away from her evil past she ended up in Washington State.
Izzy’s new life is turned upside down when she meets her Harley-riding neighbor Braxton Ryles.
Larger than life Braxton is a biker with a mouth to go with it. Owning his own shop, he controls most things in his life. Living and loving hard, the only thing that means anything to him is his daughter Eve. Upon hearing they had a new neighbor move in, his curiosity gets the better of him when his daughter won’t stop talking about their new neighbor.
The instant their eyes meet, chemistry takes over and ignites into an inferno of lust. His sense of humor and her blushing tendencies seem to sizzle whenever they are together. The only problem is they both have troubled pasts, evil ex’s that want to rip their new found happiness apart.
One-ex wants revenge; the other seeks vengeance.
What happens when their new found love collides with the ones who threaten to take it all away?
Can love survive? Or will their pasts burn their dreams of a future to ashes?
Love will be tested, hearts will break, and the horrors of the past will reveal a secret Izzy is desperate to keep hidden.
Heat-o-meter: R with some NC-17
This book started off good for me. I liked the suspense and there were characters that I wanted to reach into my kindle and kill myself! I actually think its great when an author writes a villain I feel that strongly about. But, this book did contain one of my deal breakers: cheating. If that isn’t a deal breaker for you, you will probably really enjoy this book. Honestly, it is a small event in the grand scheme of the book but I just couldn’t like the hero after that. I also lost some respect for the heroine for how easily she forgave him.
But, if an indiscretion isn’t a deal breaker for you, this book is one you should certainly pick up!!
He leans into me, his lips barely touching mine. I am yearning to feel the softness of them as he teases me with a slow lick of his lower lip. My eyes are entranced. His wet, velvety tongue glistens as if inviting me in. I’m visibly shaken as every ounce of my body feels like it’s now lit on fire. Braxton is intoxicating.
