Izzy White knows of the darkness in this world. After all, she escaped it long ago. Determined not to let her past beat her, Izzy has a secure, stable life with a job she loves in nursing. But one act of kindness will completely upend everything she's so carefully built-putting her right back in the crosshairs of danger she's been so desperate to avoid.
When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can't help thinking she's been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane's notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he's tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away.
As Theo's demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.

Good not great book
I was a little disappointed in this book. It was good but not up to par with her other books. Theo is a good main character and Izzy is too. The books waits for the last 3 chapters to get into the juicy stuff and then rushes to an end. Thank god there an epilogue or the story would have gotten less stars from me.
Favorite Jodi Malpas book
I absolutely loved this book. The characters are easy to fall in love with and very believable. It was refreshing for Theo to have a good mix of the alpha male dominance, yet it didn’t go too overboard into the realm of controlling and unhealthy. The plot line is great, and I loved the way their complicated pasts unravel at the end to give great understanding into the main characters.
Audio voices awful! Character names awful!
I had high hopes for this book! Sadly disappointed. I read all the This man books and even the audio of them and loved them!
The audio book voices in this book are bad. It sounds like two teenagers are reading this or characters out of a Harry Potter movie are reading it!
Not to mention Theo and Izzy??? Someone actually approved those names??? Imagine yourself in a steamy sex act screaming out one of those names! I just couldn’t! I even laughed at it some.
