When her high maintenance boss is assaulted, manager Xena Morgan contacts the only person who can help—the sexy, arrogant, incredibly capable Stark Security agent Liam Foster. The former vigilante takes every case personally, and he’s determined to find answers—particularly since he thought he’d cleared this threat already.
Xena had been thrilled when Liam completed his assignment, because he affected her in ways she didn’t want to contemplate, awakening yearnings that threatened her deepest secrets.
But now she needs him, and her body won’t let her forget it.
As their attraction heats to a feverish degree, the web of lies, danger, and passion they find themselves in tangles further. Liam will stop at nothing to protect his client, even if it means sacrificing everything he holds dear … and exposing the secrets that may destroy him—and Xena—forever.
“I think I used you.”
“I think I liked it.”
This book was completely UNEXPECTED! Holy suspense! I was not expecting that, but it completely sucked me in. This story was addicting from start to finish.
Liam Foster doesn’t do relationships, his focus is his career so when someone from his past comes back and needs his help he goes. Xena Morgan is a mystery, there is so much to her but throughout the story you realize how truly strong and amazing of a woman she is. Total girl crush!
Liam and Xena have chemistry that is through the roof! Seriously, it’s on fire! He is a safe space for Xena. There is danger all around them, but as long as she has Liam she feels safe and protected. Liam also feels the need to protect Xena, even more so after learning about her past.
I love the Stark world and this book had a great mixture of mixing all the previous Stark world characters and getting little glimpses into their lives again.
A MUST READ!
