Overview

Kane Archer hasn’t always been tormented; he hasn’t always hated himself or been full of rage. He hasn’t always lived his life with an overpowering sense of guilt that threatens to destroy him.

There was a time when his life was different. He was optimistic; he smiled and laughed; he loved passionately; he had it all.

Kane was content—until the unthinkable took it all away.

Two and a half years later and still reeling from his fiancée’s death, Kane returns to the one place he vowed he’d never visit again—Camden—with the promise to find the men who killed her and bring them to justice, regardless of the cost.

Emotionally numb, stricken by guilt, and haunted by the events preceding Aimee’s death, the last thing Kane wanted was to meet someone he connected with; someone who made him feel again.

As Kane gets closer to those responsible for Aimee’s death, he is thrown a curveball when he discovers a secret so devastating it rocks his world and threatens to destroy his chance at happiness.

Whitney Jareau packed up her life when tragedy struck her family, leaving everything behind. Finally free from the persistent and domineering family that insisted she do the one thing she couldn’t, Whitney found peace in Camden.

Two years later, her family wants her to come home and will stop at nothing to get her there. Wearing her heart on her sleeve for Kane Archer, a man so gorgeous it hurts to see the pain he carries, Whitney fights her family and refuses to return home to carry out their wishes.

Can Whitney stay strong without giving in to the demands of her family?

Can Kane let go of the past and move forward with the woman who brought him back to life?

Or, will he walk away from her and carry the burden of unbearable guilt.

My rating: 4.5 of 5 ¿¿ At some point in his life, Kane Archer thought things couldn't get much better. After his somewhat turbulunt adolescence he had chosen a path for himself that was one of justice, if at times on the gray side of the law, and he had come back to Camden, claiming his future wife. Now, two years after an assignment gone horribly wrong that had left him injured and his fiancee dead, he is in Camden once again - torn and bitter and hell-bent on revenge. Moving to Camden to get away from family pressure, is the best thing Whitney Jareau could have done for herself. She was being forced in directions she didn't want to go, after the family suffered a devastating loss. Here in this small town, she could live on her own terms and make her own choices. She had good friends and enjoyed working at the coffeeshop. Even better when the dark and brooding, but beautifully handsome Kane Archer popped in for his regular shot of caffeine. Kane noticed the blue-eyed Whitney, her welcoming smile lifting a bit of his dark mood each time he came in. But he hadn't planned on acting on it, not until he was forced to intervene when it appeared she might be in trouble. Little did he know, the blonde bombshell had some moves on her. She diffused the situation almost single-handedly before he had a chance. That made her even more attractive to him and he had to struggle to keep his focus where it needed to be - finding his fiancee's killers. Whitney understands the pain and darkness Kane struggles with and would love to alleviate some of it, but has to tread carefully. She has come to care for him a great deal and he is not ready for that. But when her family is once again putting on pressure to make her come home and abide by their wishes, this time by force if need be, he doesn't hesitate to interfere. **** FABULOUS!!! Another great writer discovered....well....for me at least. And a series! You know what that means...... There will be more! A little reminiscent at times of the amazing Kristen Ashley, the feeling this book gave me when I was reading. The way the characters were portrayed and the relationship developed. I really, really loved it. Heat, humour, grit, growls, and an array of fabulous and colourful characters against an interesting backstory. Whitney is resilient, despite suffering significant loss in her life, she has the ability to pull positives out of most situations. If anything, she may have a little too much faith in the goodness of people. An endearing quality but dangerous as well. Her positive nature did allow her to see more than just skin-deep with Kane, the man underneath the armour. Kane is fueled by revenge, which is why he can pretend not to be affected by the negative assumptions made by the town he grew up in, or why he doesn't make any effort in his own defense. He tells himself it doesn't matter, even though it does. Whitney seems to be the only one who doesn't judge, doesn't assume. She baffles him with her openness and draws him out. These characters cause the most delicious friction on paper. Poetic contradictions with Kane the rugged and monosyllabic enigma of a warrior and on the other hand Whitney, a guileless and luscious coffee shop employee, with a sweet exterior but a firm bite. Love how the public personalities slowly give way bit by bit under the influence of the other, to reveal the true characters underneath. All of this with a heavy dose of sexual chemistry that is nothing short of delicious. I adored this book by Emma Grayson, and absolutely do not wish to miss another one in this series. The combination hot chemistry with great suspense is one I am a slave to, as those who know me will attest to. Highly recommended!! ¿An adrenaline-spiked, hot and heavy Alpha ride!!¿ **ARC provided in return for an honest review.**

Not a fan. Story line was good but the story was not. The hero wasn't "broken" he was an a**. The language was almost unbearable and I don't mind really bad language in a book when it's character driven but this was just useless. Was really wanting to like it I need a new author but she is not it.
