Sinclair takes a look at the rougher side of life, even if it is covered with a smooth veneer. She develops her story in a straightforward and approachable manner yet keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. As a reader, you become fully invested in the story. The suspense, the heat, the honesty, they all combine to create a uniquely powerful tale that you won’t be able to put down. Her descriptions and narrative lay the captivating story out before you in a very visual yet intrinsically approachable manner.
Sinclair creates the type of characters that you want to be. They are strong individuals who have been through the wringer but come out on top through sheer perseverance. They are also remarkably well developed individuals. I feel like I’ve actually met them. The supporting cast in this novel was quite unique. None of them were overly developed, but they were just as easy to be around as the main characters. I especially enjoyed the fact that one of the major players in this novel was a memory. It added an extra element to the story as a whole.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable read that I could barely put down. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys racy romance with an edge of danger.

Two people struggling with the guilt of betraying the memory of Michael, Jace’s deceased brother and Quinn’s fiancé, while admitting their feelings for each other.
The story was mostly centered on Jace and Quinn exploring their feelings for each other and dealing with the guilt of those feelings. I would have liked to have seen more of the suspense part of the story. There are only a few scenes where Quinn is threatened and we don’t get to see the depth of the madness or the showcasing of resources that the prominent businessman alluded to in the story.
What I didn’t enjoy about the story was the amount of page time that the characters internalized their feelings. I understand that backstory was needed for the psychology of the characters but I always seem to lose interest in a story when there is more internalization than dialogue.
The story was well-written and the love scenes were pretty steamy, but I felt the story was just an okay read.
