She has no idea what she’s doing. Loose cannons never hit their targets.

And they take out plenty of collateral damage.

Four years ago Lindsay experienced the unspeakable right before me, and I couldn’t stop them.

But that’s all changed now.

When her father, Senator Bosworth, contacted me to ask — demand — that I protect her, it was a second chance. A shot at redemption.

An opportunity to right an unspeakable wrong.

Controlling Lindsay as she seeks her revenge on the monsters who hurt her won’t be hard.

Containing my own out-of-control feelings for Lindsay and keeping up this ruse of cold-blooded distance will be.

Even harder than admitting to her what really happened that night four years ago.

It turns out I don’t have to, though.

Someone else did it for me.

And I’ll make sure they regret it.

  • A harmless little ruse

    By SeemaMann
    Quite frankly, one of the worst books I’ve read in a while. The rape is glorified as though from a perverts POV. I skipped entire paragraphs at a time praying it would improve to justify the “ taking New York by storm” accolade. Definitely give this one a skip.
  • Drew is the man

    By PudseyAnn
    Drew has spent 4 years training and honing his skills with one goal in mind. To protect Lindsay and to be there for her when he couldn't. Drew is a determined and fierce character. He loves Lindsay, the only woman he has ever loved. He wants to be her everything but can she trust him. She has spent 4 years believing he did nothing to help her hen in fact he couldn't. In her heart she knows the truth. This is part 2 of a 3 part story. It has you gripped and wanting to know more. I really enjoyed this book and the characters. Bring on part 3
