Rating 4.5/ sensual
When a perfect new love is shattered, two hearts will do anything to pick up the pieces. In this sizzling novel from the author of Stone Walls, irresistible heat leads to sensual thrills—and a secret that changes everything.
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 Cavallo’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.

I would like to thank Netgalley and Loveswept for generously providing me with the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Having never reading anything from this author I had no idea what to expect. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Even with this being the second book in this series I did not feel lost so this can be read as a stand alone. It’s one that I did not want to put down once I started it.
This is a second chance at love story. It drove me crazy because all the angst could have been avoided if the main characters would just communicate!! It would not make for a great story if they did.
I fell for Nick from the start…. Everything you want in a book boyfriend! The cover does not do his description justice. I wasn’t impressed with how he let Angela go so easily though. That was heartbreaking. It’s also pretty disappointing because I feel like he could have fought harder for her.
Angela, having made her own HUGE mistakes pulls away from Nick and doesn’t go to him like she should. Especially knowing the line of work he’s in (FBI bad ass agent) I’m sure he could have handled anything she had to throw at him.
One thing that bothered me was Nicholas (JR) he seemed a little too advanced for a 13 month old. I can see crawling and starting to walk…mama, dada but adding other words in there kind of threw me off.
All that being said I was in love with this couple and wanted everything to work out for them. When they are together there is definite chemistry. The two of them being together just makes sense. This was a great story of mystery, intrigue, humor, angst, romance and some pretty sexy scenes all wrapped up in one little book. It kept me interested and wanting to know what would happen next from start to finish.
I now need to read the first book in this series and hoping for the next book to be about Angela’s brother David.
