Raelyn Jennings has survived the unthinkable. She’s been given a second chance to live, to breathe, to feel. Her ability to overcome such a traumatic hurdle has created armor around her heart. But beyond her shield is fear, a consuming deep one, of the unknown. Raelyn vows to herself that she’ll solely focus on the one constant in her life, her career as the CEO for a prestigious accounting firm.
Damien Heathman’s unrelenting determination has made him a powerful, respected man. He’s sexy and confident and utterly breathtaking. His dominance and strength is evident in every purposeful stride, every meaningful look, and every soft caress.
Raelyn has worked with Damien’s company, Heathman Enterprises, for many years, but they’ve never crossed paths—until now.
Damien’s presence fills a room. He steals Raelyn’s breath and sparks her broken heart back to life. Once Damien sets eyes on Raelyn, there is no turning back. He wants her, and he’ll stop at nothing to have her. Not even the dark secrets hidden behind his tattoos will stand in his way.
The chemistry is undeniable. The passion is palpable.
Can Damien convince Raelyn that he is worth the risk? Or will Raelyn allow her past to control her future, feeling the chance of another heartache is too great to bear?
My first thought when I finished this book was “I’m expected to wait until November for the next installment?!” This book was sexy, fast paced, emotional, and full of secrets. I read it in just an evening because I couldn’t put it down until I was done with the whole book.
Damien and Raelyn are two people that are meant for each other. Even though they have many opposites in their interests, they compliment each other really well. They heal each other’s souls and ground one another. Damien is tall, sexy, tattooed, and a total alpha male. He likes control in everything and has physical and emotional scars that he’s dealing with from his past. Raelyn is healing and has overcome a huge hurdle. She’s terrified of being emotionally left alone and has put up walls that Damien is determined to break down. I absolutely loved these two. They both have their faults but it makes them feel all the more real.
This story line was well laid out and flowed smoothly. I loved the characters and can’t wait to read about them in the next book in the series. They pulled me into their world and I was not ready to leave when the book ended. This is one series I can’t wait to continue. 5 out of 5 palm trees!!
