Raw, addictive and blisteringly hot, the opening of Byrd’s new series is a sizzling success. The overwhelming lust that sparks between the determined alpha male and the charming, wounded heroine is gripping, and their emotional, rocky love story is an unforgettable one that changes both characters fundamentally and for the best. Byrd expertly weaves every detail together to make a thoroughly satisfying story that will whet readers’ appetites for the next books.
Miami detective Ben Hudson first saw Reese Monroe three years ago, and wanted her desperately. But Reese was married and living in Boston, so Ben forced himself to stay away, though she haunts his every fantasy. Now that Reese is divorced and looking for a fresh start in Florida, Ben is more than ready to make all those dreams come true. Living next door to Ben is temptation itself for Reese, and it’s a shock to realize that he wants her in all the ways that she wants him. Their chemistry is explosive, but neither is prepared for the depth of their connection — until serious trouble catches up with Reese, and Ben realizes he’ll do anything to keep her safe.
