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?

Loved it

Moved slow , but I’m starting to appreciate the slow pace compared to other KA novels. Joe is probably one of my favorite Alpha males. Only down side was him calling Vi “buddy” so much. Buddy is a term of endearment for a friend, not a lover.

Too long

Not only was the book about 300 pages too long it was irritating how dumb she made Violet’s character. Alpha male, damsel in distress and kooky neighbors/ friends were waaaaay over the top. And what’s with all the “yeahs”? And all the run on sentences which are long enough to be paragraphs...yeah?

Please give the female characters some brain

Loved this book

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.
Just a really really good book 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
