My Rating: 4.5 Coffee Cups!!

So apparently, I have not been paying enough attention lately. This is the 2nd book in a matter of a few weeks that I didn't realize WASN'T a standalone. So, be forewarned!! This has a cliffhanger!! Beware!! 

Ok, moving on. This book caught my attention immediately. Raelyn's storyline grabbed my heart. As a survivor of a extremely bleak prognosis Raelyn is excited to get back to her life. She knows she is lucky and is not taking anything for granted anymore. But as much of a miracle as her recovery is she has grown more weary. People who were close to her, people she loved hurt her deeply and she vows never to let that happen again. So she builds walls. The type of walls that would protect a medieval kingdom, much less her heart. She decides to dive headfirst back into her first love, her career. She is one of the CEOs and partners for an accounting firm, along with her longtime friend from college. She wants to put the past behind her and push forward.

And on one of her first days back, in strolls Damien Heathman. Owner and CEO in his own right, he is stern and blunt and strong-willed and immediately sets his sights on Raelyn. Exactly what she doesn't want. But he intrigues her. Pretty much immediately there are sparks. 

Damien Heathman is the type of man that goes for what he wants. He is possessive and intense. All of the things that go along with an Alpha Male. And his is intent on bulldozing through Raelyn's walls. He wanted to be her love and her protector. But he has secrets. Ones that he refuses to go into, not even with Raelyn. They are both carrying their fair share of scars. Both emotional and physical.

I can't go into too much detail about the book, but here is a quick sum: The book will move you and you will be invested pretty early on. It's definitely hot and steamy. Lots and lots of feels will be had- so prepare yourself.  Damien and Raelyn are a great couple. They each have their secrets, but it doesn't add unnecessary angst. Did I mention it's hot and steamy?
