When a perfect new love is shattered, two hearts will do anything to pick up the pieces. In this sizzling novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Stone Walls, irresistible heat leads to sensual thrills—and a secret that changes everything.
A real hero can protect and serve, but a true hero knows how to love.
Two years ago, Nick Farley was undercover as a bartender in Chicago. The tough-as-steel FBI agent was working all the angles to build a case against a local crime syndicate, but even his intense focus was no match for the sight of Angela Cavello’s plump pink lips pulling on her drink. All Nick got was one night—the longest, hottest, sweetest night of his life. It could have been the beginning of something real. Instead, she walked away—and Nick watched her go.
Angela has made some mistakes in her life, but Nick was never one of them. Nor was the baby boy he doesn’t know about. But Angela has been running from a stalker for so long that she’s forgotten how to feel safe. So when Nick suddenly reappears in her life, Angela faces a moment of truth. She wants to trust him and reveal her secrets—her life and the life of their son may depend on it—but first she needs to know that Nick can handle her past, and promise the one thing she most craves: a future together.

Slow start, dramatic finish
Nick Farley lives and breathes FBI; it isn’t just his career, its his whole world - until smart and sexy Angela Cavallo walks into his undercover location and blows his mind. Still, a stalker boyfriend (hers) and a relocation/promotion (his) begin a chain-reaction derailment of their romance. The tale of their reunion is strange, suspenseful, and steamy. It takes awhile to get things moving in this romantic thriller, but the bang-up ending is worth it. Great characters, an involved and well crafted plot, steamy sex scenes and an HEA ending - great stuff!
love holds on
The instant attraction between Angela and Nick grabbed me just as instantly. The back and forth of their feelings and their separation pulled at my heart. I wanted everything to work out. As things are revealed, even the little surprise, I rooted for their HEA. I recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
Second chance romantic suspense
Another sweet story by A.M. Madden. The couple in this standalone book is FBI Agent Nick Farley who you are introduced to in book one. Glass Ceilings is a second chance romantic suspense story not much different from the first book. Main hero is in law enforcement and main heroine is in danger from mob family. Because of that danger, Angela learns immediately that she has to stay away from Nick for his safety. The book fast forwards two years when they meet again when Angela gets pulled in for questioning for her ex's murder and Nick happens to be one of the agent on the case. The author takes you on their journey of healing and building back what they once had all the while dealing with the murder case of Angela's ex. There are a lot of bumps in the road but they end up stronger than ever. I already have my guess on who will be the next Hero in book 3!
