Max “Slick” Jones has never led an easy life. He’s rough, hardened and tatted on the outside and never once thought that he deserved to be loved. Despite his upbringing, he’s dedicated his life to helping others. When his old friend Asher Wellington calls upon his services, he drops everything knowing he has a lifetime of debt to fulfill to this family. But, what he didn’t expect was to meet Chloe.
Chloe Peters grew up in a privileged, picture perfect life with amazing parents and her twin brother, Kyle. She and Kyle were living out their lifelong dream until one second, one moment in time changed everything and sent her into a tailspin she thought she could never recover from.
Will the exchange of deep dark pain in the eyes of two hardened souls open the door to a happily ever after?
Can Max show Chloe that there can be life after tragedy? Can Chloe Show Max that he is worthy of love?
Sometimes the hardest person to forgive, is yourself.
This is a mature audience book, and is intended for adults only.
Ever so slowly I enter her. Never in my life have I wanted something to last forever. This feeling, this moment, right here, the love that I feel bursting from my chest, is something I’ve never felt before. It’s something I never felt like I deserved. But I feel like if I died today, I’d die a happy man knowing what true love feels like. This is what a man waits for his entire life. This is what being in love feels like.
She walks over to the window, pulls back the sheer white curtain, and stares out into what seems like nothingness. She places her forehead on the glass and slowly shakes it back and forth. I can’t stand to see her like this. I walk across the room and stand behind her. I question whether or not I should even touch her. My hand hovers over her arm as the hairs stand on end, begging me for my touch. Her mind is telling her no, but her body is crying out to me, begging me for help. Ever so softly I touch the back of her arms. She jumps and picks her head off the window, but doesn’t shrug it away. I run my hand down the back of her arms and bury my nose in the crook of her neck. I feel the goose bumps forming on her arms and I hear her breathing increase. I know she’s still in this broken shell. I know if I don’t do something now, I risk the possibility of never freeing her from her demons. And I know just what I need to do.
When I found out that Max and Chloe were getting a story I was beyond ecstatic! You have to understand that the way this author has captured my heart with her other series has not only made me love her writing but also a tough critic. With each story I expect the bar to be higher than the last one. How does this one do? Well I freaking loved it. You should go read the others to get a small outlook about Chloe and what happened to her. She has been basically a prisoner for so long alone because of revenge! However when she meets Max (tattooed sexy bad boy looking PI) the chemistry immediately started to spark. Now she has deemed herself unworthy so to speak because of what happened while Max believes nobody can love him because of all the dangerous life he has led. Two souls that are meant to be together but afraid to let go! The main characters each have demons to fight but together they may be able to overcome if only they will stop being so stubborn. One thing i have noticed is that family is always big in her novels. Read this amazing novel to find out if they can! Her characters are so fully written and defined that you keep grasping for more. I really loved these two the most because of everything they have faced. Another reason why I love this series is that with each new you are faced with a brand new scenario to continue instead of repeating. The passion in this novel shows with more than just the heated moments you also feel the pain Chloe went through. I truly can not wait to see what else she has coming with the next one.
I am an “Indie” contemporary romance author. I live in California with my husband and two teenage boys. I absolutely love being a stay at home mom.
I never liked reading as a kid. I only started reading romance novels in the past few years. My Kindle and I are inseparable now. A thought occurred to me in December of 2012 that maybe I could write a romance novel. So I went to work with the encouragement of my husband and my sister-in-law. It didn’t take long to figure out that I really enjoy writing.
Today I am a self-published author and it has been an amazing journey.
