Eighteen year old Gray McAllister is on the run. Leaving her dangerous past behind her is easier said than done, even when she finds herself at last able to forge a new life.
But then the planets align and Gray finds herself bumping into super-hot Thane Blackwell. Drooling over him from afar is safe but that's only until she is forced to look after Thane while he recovers from surgery.
Being holed up in her apartment is a bad, bad idea. Can Gray control the fire that Thane seems to light inside her, or will she give in to her deepest desires. Can Thane achieve his goal without hurting Gray in the process?
The stakes are impossibly high, but love and lies don't play nice with each other. Will Gray's past catch up with her first? Or will Thane's own secrets explode and tear them apart?
So this is the first book by T.G. Ayer that I've read that doesn't have a paranormal aspect. And that was a change, and it's a mix of good and bad-new horizons, but none of the exploring of slightly known, but mostly obscure religions that I've gotten from the other 2 series that I've read!
Gray and Thane were just awesome! I mean, she shoots him, and yet they still develop this relationship that could hurt them both, and yeah, while they did try and fight it, they're just the kind of couple that really should be meant to be!
These were individual characters, from Gray with her past with the Russian mob, and Thane with all his baggage, and they were separate, and interesting to know about, and to follow them on the journey that this book takes them on!
And that ending! Oh, my, such a cliffhanger! I really need the next book, like, now, but I know there's a wait, so I'm just going to think about all that was revealed, between all the action that was just so epic!
Enjoyed this book so much, the wait for the next one is going to be evil!

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognise that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practise given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes... I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It's a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves - it works wonderfully...
My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands - I shall forever remain crosseyed.
