My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs…

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.
A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.
My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.
I fell hard and fast.
He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.
Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.
Sexier than he’s ever been.
Provocative and commanding.
Successful and powerful.
The man I always knew he would become.
But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.
Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.
Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.
Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

You took my heart when you left,” I whispered.
He took a slow step forward, his confession cracking in the air. “And I left mine with you.”

There’s just something about this author’s lyrical writing style that always manages to enrapture me in every book she writes. But when that book is a a gripping and emotional second chance romance with an dash of suspense? Stick a fork in me. I’m done.

I’d never loved anyone the way I’d loved him. He was a fire that consumed. A strike in the night. So wrong. So right.

Ten years ago, Jace was Faith’s entire world. She fell fast and hard for the troubled and angry boy with the soulful eyes as a sixteen year old girl. Their romance was pure and potent. Faith was the good girl. Jace was the boy from the wrong side of the tracks that spent his childhood sacrificing to protect the ones he loved. They were each other’s world….until Jace walked away and broke her heart. And while she never got over the boy that took her heart, she tried to move on with her life.

Now ten years later, Faith finds herself a single parent after her husband is brutally murdered. And when there’s a threat to her life, Jace is back and determined to stand between her and any threat. But his presence quickly brings back all of the buried pain and feelings, and it doesn’t take long for things to turn complicated.

I adored Jace. He’s such a caring and protective alpha. He’s a man that’s been through so much but he never got over the woman he was forced to leave behind. He’s paid for his mistakes and determined to right the wrongs of the past. He may have walked away from her once for reasons that he can’t share, but he refuses to do it again. He’ll protect Faith and her adorable daughter even if she’ll never let him into her heart again.

Faith was the quintessential good girl. And while I’m not a reader that typically enjoys that, there was just something so endearing about her and her sweet little girl. This was such a beautifully written and emotional story. I loved the added suspense element that had me eagerly turning the pages. I already can’t wait for more in this series, especially Jace’s enigmatic brother, Ian. I’m totally hooked!
