OMG! I just finished reading this book and talk about a book hangover!! This is the first book I’ve read from M. Stratton and it will NOT be the last! This book is filled with crazy suspense and I seriously need to hit the author up for some pointers. 😉

We are introduced to Lily, a single mother, who owns an art gallery. Her goal in life is to provide for her son in anyway that she possibly can. I connected with this character so easily in that, I too was a single mother and I understood the sacrifices and the struggles to care for your children. It’s hard doing it on your own, but you have to keep your head high and just know, that you’re doing what’s right for your kids.

Lily’s son, Leo, is so adorable in this story. I just wanted to reach out and hug him. I instantly fell for Devlin. Whew!!! Talk about fire! I could feel the heat rising from my kindle. The sexual tension between these two was down right nasty! Ha!! And then comes his crazy ex, Hayden! I don’t get scared by females, but let me tell you, the things she did; I would have crapped my pants! She is creepy and diabolical but in a way, I wanted more! This story is so freaking twisted! I absolutely loved it! I completely devoured this book in 2 sittings and it would have been sooner if I didn’t have to work.

All in all, this is a great story with mind-blowing suspense. Your jaw will hit the floor multiple times! Trust me this is a Must Read!!
