After five years in Witness Protection, Greycen Craig’s life of careful routine is upended when she learns her sister is the victim in a hit and run, hospitalized, unconscious, and needing a kidney only Grey can give.

Despite warnings that this “accident” is a ruse to draw her out into the open, Grey risks everything to race back to Miami—where she comes face to face with the one man she aches to trust.

FBI agent Liam Burgess thinks he’s prepared for the moment Grey walks into her sister’s hospital room. But the moment the woman who holds his heart appears, his tongue is almost too tied to remember to ask one burning question—why she disappeared in Las Vegas two years ago.

As Grey struggles with what to tell him—everything or nothing—the danger that drove her underground resurfaces, threatening everyone she loves. And the only safe place to run is the arms of the one man she can’t tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.


1thoughtsI’ll be honest, I’ve only read two books from the series but I was able to jump right into the story with no problem. You can tell that characters from previous books come back as well as characters from her other series (Tulle & Tulips) make appearances as well. I’m sure that this would be an added bonus to readers of those books. I always enjoy when characters come back in future books.

I liked that Nikki didn’t make her alpha male overbearing. Instead, Liam knows when to take a step back to give Grey some space. However, even though there is the illusion of space being given, it is just an illusion. He never loses tabs on her regardless of the situation. I liked how devoted he was to his wife, who was his wife for a very brief moment in time.

Grey was definitely not a pushover or passive character. She has been through a lot in life, bother before and after the incident that put her it witness protection. However, she remains strong and determined in life regardless of the obstacles in her way. She was an enjoyable character to read about. She was loyal, strong and wasn’t too held up in her own bubble to take a step back and look at things as a whole.

With all this being said, I didn’t really connect to the story as much as I’d have hoped to. I still enjoyed it but something was holding me back. There was nothing wrong with the story but it just felt like it was missing something.
