Publisher Description

Violet Winters once had it all but lost it when her husband was murdered by a criminal madman. During a cold winter night Violet has to leave her warm bed to tell her neighbor to turn the music down. And that’s when she meets sinister, scarred, scarily attractive security specialist, Joe Callahan.

She wants to deny it, but Violet can’t beat back the hunger she feels for Joe so she gives in again and again. Feeling it himself, Joe feeds Vi’s hunger, breaking his own rules to keep her in his bed.

Even though Violet had only one man in her life, she’s sure Joe is giving her the signals and Vi decides she’s ready to take a second chance at life and, maybe, love. But Violet doesn’t know the dark secrets in Joe’s past, secrets so soul-wrenching, they’ve drained him dry. With nothing left to give, Joe’s determined to live his life alone and he breaks Violet’s heart.

Crushed by Joe’s betrayal, Violet comes to terms with the fact that, no matter what signals he gave, Joe was not theirs to win. But Violet’s husband’s murderer is obsessed with her and heartbreak again haunts the door of the Winters home. When it does Joe is forced to face the knowledge that he can’t fight Violet’s pull, she’s under his skin and filled him full to bursting.

Joe needs to win her back and put his life on the line to keep Violet safe. But, having had it all once, can Violet endure losing Joe?

Great story, long enough to keep me entertained for days which I loved now that I'm retired. FYI this CAN be read as a stand alone I didn't read any other books in this series before this but I definitely plan to now.

This book made me cry and swoon.

Loved Vi throughout the whole book. Joe was the reason for the cry swooning part.

After each KA book I read I think that book is my favorite. I have to say, I loved this one! I laughed out loud and even cried. I enjoyed each character and didn't skip any parts as I sometimes do.. In this book KA got right to the point and made it exciting to read. I wish there was a part 2 to this couples story. Finished the book in 2 days.
