Publisher's Summary

After being left at the altar, Jade Roberts seeks solace at her best friend's ranch on the Colorado western slope. Her humiliation still ripe, she doesn't expect to be attracted to her friend's reticent brother, but when the gorgeous cowboy kisses her, all bets are off.
Talon Steel is broken. Having never fully healed from a horrific childhood trauma, he simply exists, taking from women what is offered and giving nothing in return...until Jade Roberts catapults into his life. She is beautiful, sweet, and giving, and his desire for her becomes a craving he fears he'll never be able to satisfy.
Passion sizzles between the two lovers...but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.

Here's what I'm comfortable saying without giving anything away.......

The description tells of a bride being left at the alter so she goes to her best friends ranch. Bride being left at alter isn't the premise of the story it's actually a non-issue.

The story is full of suspense, mystery, angst, tears, and OMG's and What the f**k. There's also romance and hot sex.

I was driving when the cliffhanger hit and I almost had to pull of the road. Once I regained my composure I called my daughter who also listens.

Sebastain York and Neva Navarre gave a fantastic performance. Sebastain as Talon broke my heart and I hung on every word.

Absolutely worth the credit or $$.

Would A Little Buildup Have Hurt?

The two main characters go from being total strangers who start off alternately ignoring each other or bickering. That lasts about 30 seconds. Then they are amazingly drawn to each other and can't stay out of each other's arms or bed. There is no time spent on getting to know the characters, understanding what their attraction is or why it is so all consuming. The fact that they hooked up so quickly made no sense. Nor did it make sense that they were evidently keeping the torrid affair from his sister/her best friend. She was either an idiot or in a coma. I kept reading because I wanted to know what happened to Talon when he was a boy. (Note: Isn't the hero's name "Talon Steel" completely over the top? And the author evidently blew through her entire imagination on that single name. The best she could come up with for his sister was Marge?)

I kept at it until Jade landed a job, told her new employer who she was living with and then he gave her a file with her first case. Totally ridiculous at this point. That is when I looked ahead, saw there were several other books in the series, so god knows when the big secret would be revealed. And suddenly I didn't care enough to keep reading.

The narrators do a good job of bringing really poor writing into some semblance of real life. But they couldn't save this stinker

ok but not great

An ok read but won't have you on the edge of your seat. I didn't connect with the characters and Jades voice was annoying.
