She’s hiding secrets.
For Anna, keeping her deepest scars hidden from the world has always been a necessity—from the bruises of her childhood to the mistake that nearly cost her everything. To keep herself safe, she must keep everyone around her at a distance—especially the man who has tempted her since the moment they met.
His demons are taunting him.
Mason has done his best to bury the past by achieving more than he ever thought possible. But even with all of his success, his life feels empty.
When tragedy strikes, Anna is left fighting to protect the only family she has left. And Mason will do anything to keep her and her loved ones safe—even if that means the ring of wedding bells.
But as a new spark ignites between them, someone is watching.
And they’ll do whatever it takes to snuff out that light for good.

Not my first read by the author and I have read some of the other books in this series. This one I was nervous for because I kind of hand an idea what was coming. It was very intense and action packed with scenes, I think I was missing the romance + heat a little in this one. Under the circumstances of the story I do understand it but that’s just my personal thought on it.
The hero here is the sweetest man alive, he is generous, smart, sexy, handsome and just all around the best guy can be. The heroine is a woman that comes with a past that’s tainted and complicated. These two have actually known each other for a couple years before anything proceeded. The heroine is the ‘big boss’ at the safe house in town and the hero happens to volunteer there on top of his actual job. When a situation occurs, the hero does not hesitate to be there for the heroine. Now this is where it gets complicated I think, because the heroine past is really a rather dark one (not that the hero’s isn’t. they are equally both tainted in their own color) but hers happens to come up from the dark and try to not only ruin the life she has build but also take away people who mean the world to her. A offer happens to slightly save the situation until everything and I mean everything goes against them, will they be able to stick it through or will their own personal darkness ruin it all?
I really think that this was something I was not expecting, the feelings it brought out in me, the story over all. As much as I was fascinated, I also wanted to throw things, be angry with them, smile and feel the first real kiss…I was all over with my emotions in the best way of course. I will be going back to see which ones I have not read in the series and definitely read them.
