Given a choice, I'd date a woman who doesn't know who I am. Like the green-eyed woman I meet on sidewalk, tears streaming down her cheeks. The one who triggers what my overprotective older brothers call my "Everhart Complex"—the uncontrollable urge to erase someone else's pain.
This little character flaw could shred me if I let it. That's why I don't do family law. But it's who I am. Who I became after my parents died.
Nothing says "successful adult" like living with my grandfather and having my little sister as my boss. But with my acting career stalled and my checking account in single digits, playing receptionist at Beesley Enterprises is a bearable humiliation.
Until he walks into the office. The man I met on the sidewalk on the worst night of my career. Mr. I'm-Going-To-Fix-Your-Life—as if I'd let him. Because just for a moment, I felt safe. I felt something besides numbness. And dammit, if I let my ice queen façade crack, I'll be worse than back to square one. I could fall off the edge entirely…

This was one roller coaster thrill ride of a read. Claudia Burgoa really did it this time. The raw emotion, passion and mental anguish came through for these characters in a way I haven't seen Claudia write before. This has absolutely been the best work I've read from this author. She captured the mental anguish, illness and challenges both Willow and Hunter faced singularly and as a couple perfectly. And she did it all while keeping this story full of sexual tension and heat. Willow and Hunter fought for each other by facing their mental & emotional problems, resulting in a tried and true couple who fought to be together for all of the right reasons and not just because they were scared or dependent on one another. This is definitely a story worth every hour it takes to read.
