Ten years ago, my world was ripped apart and intertwined with a man I had never met.
Now, someone’s threatening the freedom I so desperately want after a decade of suffering.
Pushed to relive my mother’s death and dig up the truth for answers, I discover more than a few lies. Starting with the man responsible.
Or so I thought…
I have to decide how far I’m willing to go for the truth and what I’m willing to sacrifice. Happiness? Love? My life?
I served ten years for a crime I didn’t commit.
All to protect my brother.
But when the survivors of the atrocity suddenly start dying, a detective offers me a chance at redemption by helping him save who’s left.
I’ll have to face the people that my brother’s crimes haunt.
A girl I should avoid but can’t seem to resist.
The harder I try to pull away, the more we collide together.
All I ever wanted was to protect those I cared about, but all I’ve ever done is to fail them, repeatedly.
Now, failure is not an option. I won’t let innocent people die over my mistakes again.
This is an emotionally-dark romantic suspence novel. It contains situations that some readers might find offensive or triggering. Recommended for 18+ readers because of adult content and language.
“This isn’t going to end well.” He placed his hands up against the wall on either side of me, trapping me if I had any intention of trying to escape.
I looked up at him through hooded eyelids and thick lashes, seeing his resolve finally give way. “I’m not looking for anything that requires an ending, Elliot. I just want to be thoroughly fucked.”
