When you’ve lived your life as a criminal…
When you’ve done unspeakable things …
When your soul has become dark and stained…
The path to redemption begins where you least expect it.
Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world.
Little by little, she claws through his shell.
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more.
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed.
When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness finally extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?
Secretive Hero+Quirky Heroine=Romantic Suspense
I love Jane! She is a force to be reckoned with! She is an art teacher that works with middle to high school kids plus does her art free-lance on the side. She also tutors art students at her home. She has a love of movies and quotes movie lines and gives their movie title and release year! She puts in these little quips in with the conversation and Kyle just shakes his head at her. She is a riot! Jane is the eternal optimist and she is as tenuous as she is curious. Kyle her reclusive neighbor is a man she wants to figure out and she won’t take no for an answer.
Kyle is very taciturn and keeps to himself. The last thing he wants is to get involved with anyone from this small Maine town. He doesn’t plan on staying here long. He doesn’t encourage her invitations, but that doesn’t stop Jane. She keeps at him. Until he can’t deny their chemistry any longer.
There is so much to this story and I don’t want to give anything away about either Kyle or Jane. They have amazing chemistry and they both can’t deny what’s brewing between them. There is so much in Kyle’s history that he keeps secret and Jane tries to gently pry it out of him. Until it all explodes. My heart just dropped. Kyle and Jane both have a lot to work through. Kyle has to find forgiveness for himself and hopes Jane can forgive him and forgive his past.
I really enjoyed every page and I highly recommend this book!
Loved Kyle and Jane
Another well crafted story by S Bennett. I was intrigued by Kyle when I read Wicked Bond, Bridger’s story. Kyle was my next obsession. My only criticism would be that the book cover did not match the hero, Kyle. He was a blond (mentioned several times!) and the book cover guy was a handsome, black haired man. This just seems like an epic fail to me that is totally unnecessary. That said, I recommend this book.
Kyle is an undercover agent in hiding until he testifies against the criminals. In a little town as a lighthouse keeper, he meets Jane. She’s quirky and lovable. Kyle tried to discourage her friendship but she keeps on trying. Jane and Kyle were complete opposites when we first meet them. The story was very enjoyable. As bad as some people can be, there are good people too.
