This book drew me in from page one. And when Nick and Savannah met, I was a little worried, because I'm not a fan of insta-love, but in this case, it was handled with pure perfection. The story had the perfect blend of angst and suspense, and kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time -- or in my case, kept me up till the wee hours of the morning. YAWN! If you're a fan of a good romantic suspense, then READ THIS! I highly recommend it!

I was book surfing, unsure what I wanted to read next, when I came upon this. On a whim, I got this and started reading immediately. Savannah has an abusive ex boyfriend she just can't seem.to get rid of and has just moved, in an effort to finally shake him. Nick is a DEA agent just coming back from a grueling two year undercover assignment. Both just happen to be at the same coffee shop when in walks Butch, the ex boyfriend. In front of everyone, Butch is yelling obscenities at Savannah and roughly grabs her by the arm with the intention of forcing her to leave with him. Nick steps in to help Savannah, one thing leads to another, a fight ensues, the police are called and Savannah and Nick have now met for the very first time. Weeks go by, and everyday, Nick and Savannah see each at the coffee shop. They drink their coffee, laugh, chat and get to know each other. One day there's a knock at Nick's door. Low and behold, it's Savannah and she's been beaten by none other than Butch. Nick takes her to the ER where the doc informs her it'll take 6 wks to heal and she probably shouldn't be alone the first two. For which, Nick insists she stay with him for those two weeks while a security system is installed in her apartment and Butch can hopefully be apprehended. Sounds interesting right? Well, it was. I was bumping right along thoroughly engaged until a week and a half into her two weeks with Nick; they profess their undying love for each other. Wait, what? Yes, you read that correctly. Believe me, I had to go back and re-read that just to make sure I read it correctly. Keep in mind, this is at about the 48% mark in the book and they haven't even been on a date yet. Unfortunately, this made the story fall flat for me, (like lead balloon flat). Admittedly, I'm not a big fan of Insta love, but it can be pulled.off when executed properly. I wish I could say it got better, but it didn't. The further I got, the more cliche and unbelievable it became. At some point, I started skimming just so I could finish it.
Liked the Male character not the female. She's in an abusive relationship with a man for 3 years but they are not intimate! She is a nurse but not a strong or competent woman. I just didn't get the dynamics of her and her abuser, it didnt make sense. I have great empathy for people in abusive relationships but this one in the book made no sense .
5.0 out of 5 starsA great mix of suspense, romance, danger, and humor

Savannah Fields a woman who made the wrong choice in men. She finds herself needing to move without letting the man who has hounded her for a few years know where she’s moving to. They aren’t even romantically involved, but he thinks he owns her and controls her. Butch is a member of the Devils Dominion MC, and he’s trying to show the President that he is officer material in the Club. He’s sent to Washington DC to check out another MC to see if they will fit into the Devils Dominion MC as a charter club. Devils Dominion MC is a 1%er MC and Butch is not a nice guy. He pushes Savannah around all the time and acts jealous, but he isn’t romantically involved with her anymore. Savannah wants to get away from him, but he threatens all of her friends and her family’s lives, so she stays and takes the abuse for as long as she can. Savannah is forced to go with Butch to Washington DC, but it could be the best thing for her. She meets Karen who becomes her best friend.
Nick Tucker, a DEA agent goes undercover to bring the Devils Dominion down, but he has to fight his innate nature of good vs bad and stand by while the MC carries on business as usual. He’s not sure he will be able to do it for long. Once Nick is able to bring down the MC, he returns to Washington DC to take some time to decompress after being undercover for two years and awaits the trial that will punish the MC members for their crimes. He happens upon Savannah in a coffee shop that she likes to frequent and his conscious won’t let him stand by while Butch abuses her in the coffee shop. Nick becomes her protector and the man who will take Butch down as well.
I am so happy that I read this book. It was a great mix of suspense, romance, danger, and humor. I had tears in my eyes at times and other times, I was laughing at the sassiness of Savannah. For a woman who was beaten down, both literally and figuratively, she is able to find herself and again and come out stronger, smarter, and still full of love. The twists in this story were surprising, but interesting. I loved how Savannah and Nick were able to bring each other out of their darkness to find life again and to be able to carry on their lives. I give this book a 5-star review and highly recommend it to readers who enjoy reading stories about MC’s, Ex-Military men, men who uphold the law, and women who regain their strength, humor, and lives after tragic events in their lives and after bad relationships find them in trouble. There was really so much more to this story, but to avoid spoilers, I don’t want to say too much about it other than you really should buy it and read it. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series to come out, Blurred Line.
I just loved so much about this book. Karen and Spencer are great characters and they fit so well with Savannah and Nick.
