Sharon Cullen has done it again with this suspenseful story. I loved that Tess wanted to be on her own not wanting to admit that she still has feelings for her ex-husband. Throughout the whole book you can tell these two so belong to one another yet each one is stubborn. Along with the stubbornness between them is the passion that they can’t deny anymore. These two were great and Sharon did an awesome job with the suspense of the killer wanting Alex dead for good. Awesome book and can’t wait for more of Sharon’s great imagination.
Only a year ago, Officer Alex Juran and his wife Tess had it all. Love, a solid marriage and a baby on the way. Then in one heartbeat they lost everything.

Because no matter how much she’s hurt him in the past, they’ve been given a second chance—and he’ll do anything to protect his wife.
