Kensey Lyons has not had an easy upbringing. Her stepfather is on death row and her Mother married him to escape her reality. Rumors, misconceptions, lies, and betrayal have been the story of her life, but to her credit she takes it all in stride, picks her battles, and refuses to let her past define her.
She knows who she is, and she will not let anyone intimidate her and she will not play games or answer to anyone. One thing that she can’t shake is who her stepfather is …a serial killer …. dark, unfeeling, and unbeknownst to her, tied to a person in her present. She has made it a point to never get in too deep, but, the new guy in town who gave a bad first impression is making that impossible.
Blake Mercier is a successful business man whose main goal is to protect his investments. Having Kensey work at his most recent acquisition has him on edge. He’s heard several rumors and myths that seem believable at first, but he must admit that there’s something about her.
He’s intrigued and when he makes his move, his plan is to remain unattached. He never thought he would fall, but Kensey quickly changed his rules, made him vulnerable, and smoothed out his rough edges.
I was pleasantly surprised because I am so used to Suzanne Wright’s PNR stories and she nailed it with this read. I loved the drama and the suspense of the story. Not knowing who the stalker was until later was brilliant. I guessed wrong up until that moment.
Having people spread rumors about you can be hurtful no matter your age. To always have to defend yourself and be in the presence of the very people spreading the rumors can suck.
The stalker turning out to be a person you trusted is very ugly. Not only that, they are just as sick if not more than her stepfather.
Worth the Read?
I normally don’t like stalker reads, however, Suzanne did an excellent job in keeping the suspense alive. These two characters were passion enhanced with adrenaline. They ran hot and cold, but never lost their spark. The very definition of magnetic and I could not get enough.
The trust, the openness, and Blake’s dirty mouth kept me on edge. I simply loved them. Love is a crazy thing and will make you step so far outside of your box that you have no clue what you’re doing. He wanted her safe, she wanted to spread her wings. They have to find a way to meet in the middle, but danger is so much closer than they think. A 5 Star EBR Must Read!
