Two broken hearts must learn to trust in this steamy, addictive contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley
Ryn Jansen has dreams of a simpler life, but as simple as her dreams are, they seem destined to stay out of reach when family obligations take all her time and money. When Boone Sadler, the man she can't stop thinking about, steps in and shares she's being conned, Ryn isn't thrilled with the news that people she loves are taking advantage of her. And she's less thrilled that Boone is the one who investigated her family behind her back. Because Boone might be gorgeous and protective and the kind of guy to meet her every need, in life . . . and other places, but he's also the one man she won't let herself have.
Boone Sadler knows Ryn has issues with trust and that her family's betrayal will come as one heartbreak too many. But Boone is a man who goes after what he wants, and what he wants is to earn Ryn's trust. When Ryn says she's survived too many heartbreaks to set herself up for another loss, Boone realizes Ryn's isn't the only heart that will break if their romance is cut short by fear. To have a future together, they'll both have to open their hearts - and put their trust in each other.

Fans of Ashley's Denver-set romantic suspense novels filled with lawmen, bikers, PIs, and strippers, will be satisfied if not blown away by this solid second entry in her Dream Team series. Stripper Ryn Jansen dreams of being a house flipper, but regularly puts her aspirations on the back burner in order to financially support her niece and nephew. When security expert Boone Sadler a "commando" Ryn knows through her colleague Evie, the protagonist of Dream Maker learns that Ryn's sister-in-law uses Ryn's monetary contributions for massages and retail therapy rather than food and field trips, it sets the stage for Ryn to re-evaluate her familial relationships. Simultaneously, the bad guy who kidnapped Ryn in the previous book tracks her down once more, pushing forward a series-serving plot about Boone and his team's investigation of a crew of dirty cops. On top of the drama, Ashley devotes plenty of space to the light BDSM relationship that develops between Boone and Ryn, who don't take long to settle into domestic bliss. It's a lot to juggle and at times the story feels overcrowded, but series fans will be pleased to return to this high-octane world and check in with familiar faces.
