An all-the-feels novel of fierce love overcoming a dark past from the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling THIS MAN series.

Izzy White knows of the darkness in this world. After all, she escaped it long ago. Determined not to let her past beat her, Izzy has a secure, stable life with a job she loves in nursing. But one act of kindness will completely upend everything she’s so carefully built-putting her right back in the crosshairs of danger she’s been so desperate to avoid.

When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can’t help thinking she’s been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane’s notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he’s tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away.

As Theo’s demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.

My review:

I received a review copy from the publishers in return for an honest review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

I think that the book will prove to be a great read. It is a romance book, yes, but I reckon that it will not be just that. From the brief portion that I did read, I could easily infer that the author will also deal with a number of issues through the characters. There is a lot of potential with the story, but mind you, it has the usual innocent girl- dominant hero trope that some do not like. Keeping aside that matter however, it also seems that the plot will ensure the development of the protagonists thus delivering us great character arcs. I am also curious to know how the author will bring about the main conflict and then lead to the climax.


I think that the novel has great potential and from what l have read, I rate it a 4/5 stars!
