The darkness claws at Raine Sims, bringing her farther in.
There was no escaping it and no one to bring her out of it. The burden of loss
weighs heavily on her, reminding her every day that there are no guarantees in
life. Every day is a struggle every day she puts on a façade just to get
through. She’s already lost her husband to divorce and now her child in death…
It’s all too much to grasp.
But a chance encounter with Sly Wilkes is all it takes to come completely
Sly Wilkes is always in control, in every situation, including in the bedroom.
He’s mysterious, and Raine has definitely piqued his interest. However getting
to know her isn’t all that easy. Raine’s guarded and believes she deserves to
feel the pain and the darkness that surrounds her.
Will Sly be able to help Raine see she deserves more?Or Will the pain forever
and Raine have an instant connection from the first time they see each other.
Something draws themselves to each other and later on in the book we realize
they both suffered their own painful pasts. Sly’s is a littler father back than
Raine’s most recent sadness and tragedy, but together they make it work.
takes a little surprise of their own to really get down to Sly’s sad past, but
once he comes to grips with his own hang-ups, these two are able to work it
out. Raine is a very smart and calm character; sweet and understanding. Sly’s
alpha/dominate side is super hot and I wish we could have seen more of his kink.
Don’t get me wrong, the sex was hot, but would have liked more.
enjoyed about this book was that Sly and Raine were very straight forward with
each other (with the one exception that Raine didn’t tell Sly her ex-husband
works for his company, but that led us to some fun in the broom closet::wink
refreshing from all the angst and lack of communication that most characters go
through. There weren’t a lot of twists or mystery, but was a sweet read. Definitely
