Mia Ryan was on the path to make all her dreams come true. Her life was everything she wanted it to be; until one fateful night changed everything – leaving her broken and without direction. Nearly a year later, she still has little faith in anyone or anything. Desperate to reclaim her life’s ambition, she takes an unexpected offer that promises to solve all her problems. But as Mia moves forward, she’s faced with obstacles she couldn’t have foreseen. The biggest of them lies within the mystery of Ethan Fitzgerald; a man who affects her like no other, but who she should avoid pursuing, at all costs.
On a mission himself, Ethan Fitzgerald didn’t care who he pissed off on his road to fulfill his mother’s dying wish. He relied on himself, and was closed off to the world around him – until Mia Ryan walked through his door. Normally one to avoid messy emotions, Ethan’s world is turned upside down by Mia, and he can’t seem to get enough of her.
There are lines you can cross that will change the course of your life forever …

**ARC given in exchange for a honest review**
I really loved this book. I was totally sucked in from the very beginning. It had a lot of drama that had my heart pumping. At some points I had to take a break, I was unsure if my heart could manage the outcome. I gave it four stars. At points, I felt like it dragged out before anything really happened.
I just got a new kindle which has the text to speech feature on it. I have to admit when I first started the book, I was worried I would never finish it. It showed at the rate at which I was listening to it, it would take 13 hours to complete. Most novels that I read are usually 5-6 starting out and then it usually doesn’t take that long. I did enjoy the detailed events and explanations of different scenarios. Or maybe I didn’t realize how long it does take me to read some novels until my new kindle did a calculation?
Mia Ryan is so broken & shattered from one event that happened about a year ago. Each day she seems to get better, but she never thought she needed saving or help to break down her walls. She jumps on the one opportunity that is an offer she can’t refuse. She thinks she doesn’t have anything left to lose.
Ethan is the man that makes your heart throb and your panties wet at just the sight of him. He exudes dominant manliness. He has tattoos, muscles and is sex on legs. He was not looking for a night one stand, or a relationship. When Mia came through his door, he knew he had to have her from the moment he laid eyes on her.
I waited the whole story to see if the ending I hoped for would emerge, and I’m sad to say, the words that shattered my heart were “to be continued.”
