Preston Mitchell’s life as an undercover DEA agent has never allowed him to have a normal life. He’s never considered a relationship with a woman until he meets Avery Middleton.
To an outsider, Avery has it all...wealth, family connections and a great job. But things aren’t so great on the inside. She decides to take a chance and make a new start three thousand miles from home and steps right into the arms of hot and sexy Preston.
Unfortunately for both of them, Avery ends up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and is now running for her life. Fortunately, she has a gorgeous DEA agent protecting her. In the midst of all the chaos, they find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. But Preston carries more than his share of mental baggage, courtesy of his job. Even so, Avery rocks Preston’s world because she is nothing like anyone he’s ever met and something extraordinary begins to happen between them. But can their love survive in this world, where danger, intrigue and deception lurk on every corner?
Please note this book is part of a series but can be read as a a standalone, you do not need to have read the previous books to understand this.
I hate to say this but before this book I had not read any books from A.M Hargrove and after reading this book I have come to the realization that this is a very sad thing as I have fallen in author lust with her style of writing and humour . . . oh yes you will laugh.
Avery has been brought up in a life of wealth but still wants to make something of herself, her family is a little out of the ordinary with a mother who is very controlling. What I love about Avery is that she is what I would call a real women, she has curves! I love this, it makes her seem more real and I was able to relate with this, not being able to fit in your fat clothes is something women go through and it was refreshing to see this in a character.
Preston . . . Oh my - Hello Man candy. Tall, Dark and Handsome just the way I like them. I should also mention he is an undercover DEA Agent and has enough masculinity to keep any women more then satisfied. With his dark past and gritty work Preston feels as though love is something he will never have or be worthy of but then he meets Avery - well he has to put her in protective custody and the sparks begin to fly.
Avery begins to trust Preston and believes that there may be something there but what will happen when all of Preston's secrets come to light will she be able to move past them or will she push him away?
Oh did I mention there is a love of steamy, oh my I need to fan myself down sex? Oh well there is and oh boy did it make me want to sink my claws into him, literally and figuratively.
Now you must excuse me while I rush and go buy the first two books in this series I think this weekend I have a date with the many men from A.M. Hargrove's mind and I cannot be late in fact I think being early is the only way to go.
About the Author
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodgeball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone and hit #4 on her speed dial.
A.M.: Boss, is that you?
Boss: Why yes, A. M., who else would be answering my phone?
A.M.: Er... right. Well, I'm calling to let you know you can pick up my luxury Ford Focus at Starbucks near the interstate.
Boss: Why ever would I want to do that?
A.M.: Because I quit!
A.M. hit the end button and speed dialed her husband.
A.M.: Hi hubs, can you pick me up at Starbucks?
Hubs: Sure... Having some car trouble?
A.M.: Not at all. I don't have a car to have trouble with because I just quit my job.
A.M.: It's time for a new career and I am going to be a very famous novelist.
So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer! Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and the upcoming reEmergent) and Dark Waltz.
