    The author provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This book started out really strong. Right off the bat you get a strong sense of the history and chemistry between Ryan and Jared. The age difference between them has caused Jared to treat Ryan like a little sister for most of her life. He has a strong sense of responsibility toward her, since her life has not always been a bowl of gravy. He feels like he needs to be there for her. Ryan idolizes Jared, and uses him as a measuring stick against which all men are compared. Ryan seems like the kind of woman who thinks if she loves a man enough, it will pull him out of his pain...and Jared has a lot of pain. After his wife leaves him and his son dies suddenly, Jared is left bitter and scorned. He decides that love and family are not for him, and that a change of scenery is just what he needs to move on with his life. A promotion to an exciting new job takes the front seat in his life, and there isn't room for much else.

    Two weeks before he leaves town for good, Ryan begins receiving threats and vicious notes. Someone's out to get her and Jared frantically tries to solve the mystery before his two weeks are up. He won't leave town until he knows she's safe. The suspense was built up nicely through most of the book, and just when you thought you knew who the villain was, another person would pop up with a grudge against Ryan and throw the entire investigation for a loop.

    For the most part the characters were likable, although I liked Jared more than Ryan. At times she seemed a little self-absorbed but she's pretty young and that's to be expected. I felt sympathy for Jared and my heart hurt for him and the loss of his son. I wanted him to be healed and realize that Ryan truly loved him and was perfect for him.

    The love scenes are hot! This was one area where Jared and Ryan didn't seem to have any problems. For most of the book they try to pretend as if the sex is enough; each time Ryan tells Jared that it won't happen again. But their bond is too strong by this point and when things get rough and Ryan goes to Jared for solace, all talk of ending their sexual relationship is ended.

    There were a few issues for me though, and as always I have to address them in the review. For one thing though, I felt as if there was way too much rehashing of the past. It seemed like there was too much lingering in Jared or Ryan's thoughts, all of which seemed to go back in time. After a while it just got old, especially since it had all been spelled out early on in the book. By the time I got to 50% I started to lose a bit of the sympathy that had been sparked in me when first reading their back story.

    ***Slight Spoiler***
    I also found the revelation of the villian to be incredibly confusing and anticlimactic. At first one man is arrested, and then a few pages later it is revealed that someone else was the culprit all along. It was never explained, though, what the first man had to do with the crime if anything. After he was arrested and the second man was fingered as the perp, no one said anything about whether or not the first man had anything to do with it. Was he released? Was he even guilty of anything? It was a bit of a let down after all of the suspense that had been built. In the end it turned out to be the person I suspected, but even that was a bit anticlimactic as I found the
