I know she’s lying the moment I see her.
That her name is as fake as her story. She’s barged into my life like a beautiful nightmare, turning everything upside down.
It hasn’t stopped me from trying to help her. Protect her. Save her from the threats that seem to come out of nowhere.
She’s put my entire world at risk. My reputation. My business. My livelihood.
But Mia brought me back to life. And I will do anything to save hers.
I was running for my life the night I met Jake.
Broken down on the road to nowhere. Lost. Homeless. Scared out of my mind.
I don’t care. I’m willing to risk it all to start over. Desperate to hide and never be found again.
But it doesn’t take much for Jake to break down my defenses. A soft word. A gentle touch. He becomes mine, but more importantly, I become his.
Until the nightmare of my past shows up, pissed off as hell…
I’d like to thank The Next Step PR for sending me an e-arc of this book obviously the author too! I have never read from this author so it was a nice surprise. I really enjoyed the writing, the story and the plot! It was a fantastic story and I really loved it.
That prologue had me hooked from the moment I read it, and as per usual I finished it in one sitting and wow it blew my mind. It was so well written where it hit my emotions and it did at one point turn me into a mess.
Mia was so untrusting it was so sad but once you know the backstory it is so clear why. Every time she questioned Jake’s motives or even Maddox’s my heart literally broke for her. When we discover more about her my heart breaks even more (I don’t want to go into full detail because of spoilers) and Mia is so strong and the way she managed to rebuild her trust and just become a new person.
Jake he damn, straight away he was willing to help Mia and I loved that. I loved how caring he was and lovely. He was willing to do anything to make sure she was okay and even gave her a place to sleep without even telling her. I loved how he was the boss and yet didn’t do the usual ego asshole boss thing and he didn’t actually tell her until she figured it out.
Maddox! Loved that he was teaching her self-defence!
This story gave me so many feelings, it went from being hit in all the feels to being tense, to be really cute. It sent me all over the place in terms of feelings and I loved it!
One of my favourite things in this book is when Jake tells Mia to take ownership of her name, now I won’t say much because of spoilers and I don’t want to ruin it. But when that scene happened I was like yes girl take ownership of your name back and I loved it! It was so perfect and especially as Jake wasn’t willing to let her give it up.
Brent is a very interesting character. That’s all I’ll say on him.
The plot, characters, story and writing was perfect, this book hit me in all the right places. I will definitely be reading more from this author! I didn’t see where the plot was going and I loved it! I would highly recommend this book! It was so great and it will give you all the feels!
