Growing up poor in the slums of Chicago taught me that guys like me don’t get any lucky breaks. And I never wanted one. Until I saw the woman I love gunned down in the street like an animal.
We’re both FBI special agents. But she’s stronger than I am. Better. And seeing her weakened breaks my hardened heart into a million tiny pieces. Lacy stole my breath the first time she waltzed in to new agent training rocking a pencil skirt and killer heels, like a buck twenty of badass Super Girl. And I’ll do anything to get the old Lacy back.
She blames me for the day that left her shattered. And I deserve her wrath. Every look…every word. I thought I was tough enough to bring down the Chicago mafia alone. I should have paid the price, but instead, I painted a target on her back. I don’t blame her for hating me. But the more she pushes me away the more my body aches for her.
I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. I need her.
My body longs to possess hers again. Get my second chance. I’m going to make her moan and scream my name in passion instead of anger.Then, I’m going to make her my wife. But we have a haunted past that makes for a dangerous future. The bad guys are back for their pound of flesh.
This time, I’ll protect what’s mine.

Another great book from Colleen Charles, also very different to the sports romance books of Colleen’s that I had read. This is the story of Lacey and Arch in a stand-alone novel. Lacey and Arch lived together and worked together as FBI agents and partners. They were a perfect pairing in every way. That was until they went after the mafia and it resulted in Lacey getting shot, but instead of being there for her Arch went into hiding.
Lacey walked away from her FBI career and everything she loved, she agrees to marry her best friend because she feels doing this she will be safe, but she is fooling herself thinking she will lean to love him because he’s her best friend, also she is still in love with Arch despite everything.
Superb characters with lots of twists and turns. I felt all the emotions of these two characters, the happiness and the sadness. The story reduced me to tears on a number of occasions and that’s when you know the story has really hooked you in and you just can’t put it down until you reach the end.
I would recommend this book, it’s well written and an easy read, great romance and a little steamy in places.
I received a free copy from Colleen Charles to proof read and review.
