Stella lost everyone and everything important to her. After all the lies and hiding, she’s ready for a fresh start somewhere where her brother’s enemies won’t find her. One last night out turned into her worse nightmare. The morning she should be moving away from all the painful memories, she finds herself a captive by exactly who she was running from.
Atlas is determined to finish what they started. Stella is unknowingly the key to solving the unanswered questions her brother left behind. Taking advantage of their sexual chemistry at the club, he forced her to his lake house. He promised her protection but Stella made a promise of her own: Trust no one, especially the man responsible for ruining her life.
What happens when Stella’s life depends on trusting Atlas? What happens when keeping Stella is risking everything he worked for? What if neither one is willing to let go?
(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)
Liddy, Stella’s best friend dragged Stella out for Stella’s last night before moving to San Francisco. Reluctantly, Stella goes to have fun and to forget she is looking over her shoulders. Stella was given a drink from a gentleman at the end of the bar that Stella wanted to have one night of fun. Atlas was that man.
Atlas took Stella to his lake house where she was supposed to be killed for information from the killings of her parents. Atlas and Stella have dynamic chemistry. Atlas couldn’t control himself around Stella. Stella was his weakness.
