Who doesn’t have a few issues from high school? Madison’s is Terence Kane. Drawn to him like no other, he always rebuffed her. Like she didn’t have enough issues having a Dad who was chief of police. But years later and Madison is a mature woman who takes what she wants. When threatened by a former lover, Terence comes back in her life as a bodyguard assigned by her Dad. Old issues die hard, and Madison is instantly combative.
Terence is older and wiser and trying to make amends for past wrongs. He too had feelings for Madison in high school, but being black and certain of the controversy a relationship between them would create made him deny his feelings and rebuff her to avoid temptation. He never realized how much his actions affected Madison, even to this day. His mission now is to save her from the danger she’s in, and maybe repair the damage he did years ago.
Most people aren’t aware of how much past experiences shape the person they are now. Every encounter plays a part in our lives, whether we realize it or not. Madison took from school a need to not need another person, because they wouldn’t need her back. It made her kind of detached and unable to connect with people, lover’s included. Her stalker brings that truth to light in a frightening and deadly way. While Madison and Terence aren’t the ones having sex throughout the majority of the book, there is plenty of it.
This is a fascinating tale about the journey to forgiveness and one another.
