Emma Wright has finally escaped the dangerous man who's controlled her every move for the past six years. Taking her 5-year-old son, she has fled across the country seeking freedom, safety, and a fresh start. But Max's father isn't giving them up so easily.
Preston Holman understands the lengths a parent will go for his child. He's given up everything to pursue the man he believes killed his son.
When Preston meets Emma, he wants nothing to do with her or the boy who reminds him so much of his own child. Yet he can't abandon them, and as he's drawn into the danger that surrounds them, Preston begins to wonder if he's finally found something to live for beyond revenge.

"Novak knows how to relate a suspenseful tale." (Publishers Weekly)
"Strongly defined characters, sizzling sexual tension, and a tautly constructed plot steeped in danger blend brilliantly together in Novak's exceptionally intense, powerfully emotional novel of romantic suspense." (Booklist)
This book was great to listen to and it kept me very interested. The characters were believable and once you got use to the narrators voice it was very good. She did great impressions of men, a child and her Spanish was very good. The story itself held your interest and intrigue although I did grimace at the abuse in the story although that was part of the story and I don't see how it could have been cut out. All in all the book deserves 4 1/2 stars!!
This book kept me engaged with its close calls and fairly well-developed characters. The son's diabetes was integral to the story and I learned a lot about the disease. The themes of spousal abuse and obsession with revenge were credible. The love scenes were steamy but not overly explicit. The reader's voice sounds a little child-like at first, but I quickly got used to it. The only jarring note was the way any non-essential female character was made to sound like a little girl from deep Texas!
The heroine is resourceful but needs a man to help her out. The hero is afraid of committment but ends up committing. The ex is really nasty. The good guys win. Entertaining and well done, but quite predictable.
This was my introduction book to Audible and it got me hooked. I listen in my car while commuting and found it hard to not bring it in and listen at home on the weekends. Great story!
This book was listed in the mystery section of Audible new releases or I would not have considered purchasing it at all. It is the silliest, most insipid excuse for any kind of mystery, and is without any merit that I can see at all. The story could be written by a tweleve year old and would probably be better written as it would leave out all the simpering, long, adoring looks, and whinning on the part of the 'heroine'. Please don't waste your book credit on this unless you are into mindless pratter.
Although I liked this book, I would not listen to this book again because I did not like how the the child's voice was narrated.
The memorable moments of this book was when Emma's husband almost found them, and then the climax
My favorite character was Preston. He had a lot of presence and the author did a great job with his character development.
No, it wasn't and that was okay.
