From Goodreads: Four years ago Erin’s life changed drastically. Her drug-addicted brother killed her parents, and her marriage disintegrated. Her husband, Matt, an FBI agent, had done his duty when he’d arrested Stuart, but she’d been too caught up in her own grief to allow him to help her move through the shadows of pain.
Now Matt is back, but it isn’t to attempt reconciliation. Her brother has escaped from Attica, and Erin is his next target. Matt will stop Stuart by any means necessary. But Stuart is a desperate man, and desperate men will do anything to get what they want.
Thrown together by treacherous circumstances, Matt and Erin fight a battle to stay alive and possibly figure out how to put the pieces of their destroyed lives back together again.
I’m a sucker for these kinds of stories. I love past loves that have to deal with each other again and get back together. I don’t know why, but they always make for some of my favorite stories. So right away, I was interested in this book. There was a lot of drama and it made me want to continue turning the pages. I read it in almost one sitting, even though it’s over 200 pages. It’s an easy read, but very satisfying. It’s also very fast-paced. I wasn’t ever bored while reading this. I loved the relationship between Matt and Erin. I also loved how strong Erin is, she’s someone that I would hope I would be like in a situation like that, but I’m sure I wouldn’t even be close. She’s amazing. The parts with her brother, Stuart, are incredibly creepy, but they add a lot of realism to the story. You can get inside his head and see how messed up he is. I really enjoyed this story and I think that anyone who is a fan of romantic suspense will feel the same. There’s a lot of heart-pounding action and it’s quite an enjoyable read. 🙂
