From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the second book in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.

He’s a fighter who never loses, but is he tough enough to win her heart?

There was a time when I had everything–a wonderful family, a bright future. Love. But all that was taken away in a single night, torn from me like flesh from bone. Since then, I’ve hidden away in my second-choice job as a makeup artist. But I prefer it that way, actually. I’m comfortable in the shadows, where no one can see my scars.

Kiefer Rogan literally took my breath away the moment I met him. MMA champion-turned-actor, notorious playboy, charming to a fault—he’s everything I vowed to avoid.

But he just wouldn’t stop until I opened up and let him in. Maybe I should’ve tried harder to resist him. Maybe I shouldn’t have fallen in love with him. Because I, of all people, know that everyone has secrets. Scars. And that they’re usually ugly and painful and destructive to the people we love most.

I just never guessed that they could be deadly, too.

Michelle Leighton is an phenomenal writer who has captivated us yet again with Katie and Rogan’s story!! To say this series is a five star read is an understatement!!

Rogan is a MMA fighter who has taken on a new role and become an actor.  He is hot, strong, and goes after what he wants.  He is so used to girls throwing themselves at him it is shocking that Katie doesn’t do that.  He is intrigued by her and not the things that she does but just her!  Rogan’s life is not roses and lollipops! He has a brother who is a prick! I think his issues stem from the unknown and not truly knowing a lot of things. I feel he thinks her is somewhat responsible for a lot of things that have happen and Rogan is also carrying that on his shoulders.

Katie is the sunshine needed to brighten Rogan’s day.  She is strong willed but she also has shadows that she is running from and he can’t figure out why.  She is a mystery that he has to solve and he will go about it in ways that she can only imagine to get what he wants.

Katie and Rogan helped each other through so hard things and once Katie opened her heart their relationship took a turn that only helped them grow.  The skeletons slowly crept out of the closet and when things took a turn for the worse, Rogan was ultimately Katie’s hero!!

I was so excited for the events in this book and happy for the ending!! I can’t wait for the next book in the great story!!
