This is the beginning of a story… the story of two people who were meant to be together. Why? Because unknown to them, they shared terrifying pasts and the cruel circumstances of their births doomed both of them to a life of hell.
Two strangers … one night … one accidental meeting that changed their lives forever.
Gabriella Martinelli, Manhattan psychiatrist had only one goal in life—to help abuse victims avoid the horrors she’d experienced herself. She worked late, volunteered, and donated her services to anyone who needed them. Life was good … until her nightmare resurfaced. He found her, and began stalking her, and she knew he wouldn’t stop until he destroyed every ragged piece of her.
Kolson Hart, Manhattan’s most eligible bachelor, was ruled by his dark past. He liked control, from the boardroom to the bedroom and didn’t care to be involved with someone whose life was just as screwed up as his was. But one look at Gabriella short-circuited everything. Want … desire … need … will sometimes drive a man to do things he swore he never would.
He freed her from a life of fear … When he couldn’t even save himself.
I thought the storyline was really good and had some really good scenes that had me wanting more!!! The connection between Kolson and Gabriella was lovely and to watch them heel each other was lovely to read!!!
Kolson was mysterious, loyal, woman loved him but couldn’t get close to him!!!
Gabby was beautiful, shy and kept herself to herself!!!
So what happens when they want to forget their days and they end up in the same bar!!! Gabby gets so drunk that she can’t even stand and Kolson becomes the gentleman that she didn’t even know exists!!!
This stranger becomes the strength and protection that Gabby needs when the past comes to get her!!!
All through the story you see that in fact she is helping him with his demons just as much as he is helping her!!!
I struggled a little reading this book purely because I don’t tend to read books from the third person and it threw me a little and at times was a bit confusing when I was reading from all different peoples views!!!
I will say that I can’t wait for the next book… Maybe because it’s end on a cliffhanger just as we were finding out about the past of Kolson Hart
A.M Hargrove Bio
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).
So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and reEmergent), Dark Waltz, Tragically Flawed, Tragic Desires, and Exquisite Betrayal.
Other than being in love with being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.
(If you’re wondering, it didn’t happen EXACTLY that way, but….)
You can also find her on Goodreads as Emerson St. Clair. Her novella series, Dirty Nights, is available and those are a little dark, a little erotic and a lot sexy
