BLURB

It was supposed to be one wild night in Nashville. Another night flirting with strangers; another night pretending I wasn’t desperately lonely. I met a man with pain in his eyes and lies on his lips. A man even more isolated and damaged than I was. For one passionate night, we held together the broken pieces of each other’s souls.

When he shows up in my life months later, it can’t be coincidence. I don’t even know if he gave me his real name, but I crave to learn more about the enigmatic man who set my body on fire. He told me he does things that haunt him to keep people like me safe. He carries the weight of the world on his shoulders and terrible secrets in his heart.

Indulging in our intense connection could leave me more broken than ever, but I can’t help hoping we might find a way to heal each other.

I thought I no longer believed in soulmates, but this damaged, scarred man could be my happily-ever-after.
       
     
EXCERPT

His keen gaze took in the tears that spilled down my cheeks. “Are you all right?”
“No, I’m not all right.” I couldn’t stop myself from railing at him. He’d stripped me raw. And then, he’d abandoned me. “I haven’t heard from you in weeks, and now, you think you can just show up here?”
His brow furrowed. “I told you I’d come back for you. I came as soon as I could.”
“Right. You couldn’t come sooner because of your job. Because of your secrets.” I ran my fingers through my hair. “I can’t handle this.”
My heart couldn't handle any more. It had been shredded beyond repair long before I’d met Scott. Somehow, he’d worked his way into the tattered gaps and ripped them farther apart.
“You left me.” The accusation hitched in my throat. “You’ll always leave.”
He reached for me, wrapping his arms around me so I was trapped in his embrace.
I shoved at his chest, but I rested my cheek against his shoulder. My mind told me to push him away, but my soul told me to cling to him. The intimacy between us was too sweet to resist.
“Why are you doing this to me?” I asked on a strained whisper.
His hands stroked up and down my back. “Because I’m a selfish bastard. Because I can’t stop thinking about you. The way you taste; the way you fit in my arms; the way you understand me like no one else does.”
His fingers curled beneath my chin, and he tipped my head back so I was caught in his intense aquamarine stare. “I can’t stay away from you, Addison.”
“Then don’t,” I begged.

Review by Kathy


Stellar read! I absolutely loved and devoured this book so fast that I kept trying to turn the pages to see if there was more because I couldn't get enough! The storyline is brilliantly written, I mean come on..these stupid companies and their policies..there should be a huge book burning of just employee handbooks I tell you! 

The characters were totally enjoyable to read and you will find yourself falling for them just a quick as they fell for each other. Too bad that there was that stupid clause that says there is not fraternization within the company because they find that they are working at the same company. But you know.....the heart wants what the heart wants and what these two hearts want is each other, so where there's a will, there's a way! Hot stuff right there!

Wonderfully entertaining read that is expected by these authors and I highly recommend this book. Oh and watch out for the next one too!

M. Malone


NYT & USA Today bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband and their two sons. She holds a master's degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized by how she's using her expensive education.

Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series, THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella "Teasing Trent," her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.

She's now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.




Nana Malone


USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense novel she "borrowed" from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.

Paige
I was weak.
After everything I’d been through, I’d grown weaker, not stronger. But I would change that. This was the year I’d lose myself, even if this meant losing Caleb—my rock. He was too close to the enemy, too close to do what needed to be done.
Alex Connor needed to suffer. It was the only way to stop him.
So, whatever it took, I would make him suffer and I would make him pay.

Caleb
There was only one thing I’d ever really wanted in life. My freedom. A sense of hope in a world where disappointment didn’t come after. A life where Alex Connor didn’t have control. It’d been the least possible thing in my life until now. But the freedom I’d wanted at first was nothing like the air I wanted to breathe with her. The moment I’d met Paige, she’d become my center, the core of my existence.
Although, when everything was said and done, I would never get to have my freedom. I would never get to revel in hope. I would become off-center, and I would fade.

Review by Kathy

Some books demand a long review, some don't. This one does however, I choose not to write one. Not because the book isn't good...Oh quite the contrary...this book is damn good! I choose not to because I feel that anything I write regarding this intriguing, exciting and emotional read would only tempt me to give away too much. And this book should be read with open eyes and an open mind. These characters should be viewed as though seeing them for the first time (although we've seen them in the first book). Changes are beginning to take place and you need to see this clearly and not through the eyes of someone else's review. 

What I will give you is this. This is a read that will shake you to your core, will pull your emotions out and will twist them around before placing them back into your body. This story will grab you and refuse to release you until you slam face first into that cliffie! 

Brilliant beginning to what promises to be an amazing career for Casey Diam.

Review by Kathy


I haven't read any of the first five books in this series, but let me tell you this...this book is one amazing read! I mean edge of you seat suspense, heart pounding excitement and intrigue enough to keep you guessing the answer to the question "who dun it"! Extremely well written, the story will capture you and not let you go until you reach the very end. A stalker, a kidnapper and a surprise to go along with it. Victims of violence are being victimized once again, only this time, there is a chance that someone will not make it back alive. The police are searching, one of their own has be targeted by a stalker. The others are searching for 5 missing women, all the while dealing with their personal family issues. The clock is ticking for the five women. The stalker has made his attempts and is not going to give up until he kills the female cop. A baby is born early, an attempt to kidnap one of the cops wives takes place and all the while, your heart is thumping fast in your chest as you turn page after page to see what happens next!

Characters so very well written and developed. Complex are the bad guys. Brave and stubborn are the women and men who are on the right side of the law. I'd say you would want to be friends with them, but hey..I wouldn't push my luck with the things that are happening to these people!

Great book, fabulous story line and I highly recommend this book!
