Ten years ago, Brent Nichols let the love of his life slip through his fingers. It’s his greatest regret, especially since she’s all but disappeared. But when the gorgeous and captivating woman walks into his life unexpectedly, he’s determined to win her back. Whatever it takes, he won’t make the same mistake twice.
Easier said than done…
Shannon Paige has hardened her heart to the man she was once engaged to be married to. After the way he left, and after the hell she’s been through with her checkered family, there’s no way she’s letting him into her life again. The problem is, the second she sees him, he’s more handsome and charming than before. And she’s torn between wanting to fight with him and wanting to sleep with him -- Maybe both. Soon they fall into each other’s arms, consumed with a desire that burns through the years.
But if these two fiery lovers are going to have a real second chance at this kind of intense, passionate, bone-deep love, he’ll have to give her his whole heart, and she’ll have to give up all the secrets from her messy past.
And that messy past is about to spill over into her carefully constructed present…

Review by Natasha Gentile
She was the one who got away…
Brent Nichols was engaged to Shannon Paige. Their future already written in the stars, or at least traced.
They lived, happily in a small rinky dink apartment biding their time until they would make the move to New York, him to write comedy, hers to train dancers. It was the way it was always supposed to be, until he made the decision to change the plans on her, without asking.
He assumed she would follow, I mean she had to, they couldn’t be without each other that part was for sure. She was the beat to his heart, surly she wouldn’t say no.
“If you don’t go with me, there’s no point staying together.” He said, making his Hail Mary pass. He had to do something. He couldn’t lose her. He had to let her know his way was the only way for them.”
Ten years later, they had both moved on from the past. Brent became one of the most successful late night show writers, Shannon started her own business having her own dance troop to choreograph.
Brent got out of the writing business and got into the night club business. Now he’s knocking down doors. But then he comes face to face with the love of his life 10 years later. His mind starts wondering if you can go back again.
His pulse pounded.
His throat went dry.
The floor tilted and loomed closer. The glass walls zoomed in. He blinked.
He was seeing a mirage. Either that or he’d slipped back in time, because there was no other explanation.
After all those years, there she was, in the flesh.
And just like that she is back under his skin. She has been there, with him before and it ended with her heart being ripped from her chest. Learning to live without the one thing you need in order to breathe was the worse thing she could do, but she did it, and she wasn’t going back for more. Except the pull, it was stronger than her.
When she was near to him like that, she couldn’t think straight. She could only feel. And that was far too dangerous for her heart.
Nothing, nothing can be better than knowing that not only is he under your skin, but that you have weaved your way into his veins.
She crossed her legs, one bare-skinned calf sliding against the other. His breath hitched. Those legs. Those gorgeous, sexy legs. They were his downfall, his weakness, and his downfall, his weakness, and his complete obsession. They were an altar he’d pray at.
The pull to each other was so strong. He is more handsome than she ever imagined he would be. She is more beautiful than he remembered. It was like going home, they were always each other’s home.
He consumed her lips. He kissed her hard, and greedily, and the world around him turned black and small. It faded into a speck of nothingness because there was room for nothing else in his world but her.
She just can’t let him in, at least not fully. He can’t stop trying to win her back. He is fighting tooth and nail to make sure this time around he isn’t walking away from her. Except what happens when there is a secret from the past that is shown to you? Do you stay and fight or do you leave her in the cold sweet sinful night?
Lauren Blakely has done it again. She has started a new series that you will want to read. It is hot, it is sassy, it is heart breaking, it is a bit of a mystery. It is everything that you want in a book and more, and I want more so much more. I can’t wait for the rest of the books in the series.
