Colin McKenna is striking and powerful, beautiful and broken…
His mere presence commands attention and he definitely has mine. I'm captivated, drawn to him on a level I don’t understand.
He wants me, needs my body to satisfy his hunger. I’ve given myself freely to his demands. But at what cost? I’m the unknown factor. He had his life planned out, a very specific path laid before him and not anywhere on his road to travel did Charlie Carter exist. Yet here I am, and his struggle becomes one of diversion. Should he divert from the path he meticulously planned or digress for an unknown draw toward a stranger, someone so unlike anyone he’s met before?
Someone with secrets that could destroy his dreams and a destiny filled with power and influence. My past is sealed, protected against curious eyes. I've moved on and created a life for myself, leaving the pain behind. Until now.
I fell willingly into his bed, stolen moments of passion so intense, they blurred the lines of responsibility and reason. The passion we’ve unlocked together could be the key to our salvation or the path to damnation.
This is my story, my fall into love and fear that it could end in a heartbeat.

“So good. It’s too good . . .” he mumbles against my mouth. And it is. So intense and so good my toes curl as I wrap my legs around his backside. I’m close to overwhelmed, the feel of him buried in me, knowing I’m really here in this moment, and his voice whispering in my ear to hold on, don’t hold back, give me everything . . . I almost can’t hold on, falling deeply into every sensation and losing myself in them.
I’ve never done this with someone and felt connected in every possible way, not just physically, but emotionally. A rush, a warmth spreads out from my chest at the realization that this is my beginning—a spring in the middle of winter, the ending of a chapter and the start of another, with Colin as the central character. Right here, in his bed, clarity reigns as his mouth claims mine again, teasing out a moan so he can claim that too. He owns me. I would give him anything. Take it, take all of me, take everything and anything. And he does, wringing out every ounce of pleasure. He knows where to touch, how to extract the smallest whimper and the largest groan. I could never tire of being with him, with him over me and in me, pushing, pulling, driving and devouring until the ache becomes a need. A need so intense and all consuming, I begin taking from him. Calling out unabashedly to move faster, go deeper, push harder. Don’t stop, never stop, never stop making me feel this good and needy and so, so full. Please, I beg. Pleading with him, pleading for I don’t know what . . .
Pushing off of his shoulders, I fall to the bed and he follows, his head dipping to my nipple. Taking me into his mouth, he teases with his tongue and bites down, hard, only releasing me when I gasp and clutch his hair. But I don’t pull him away; I hold him in place. I want more. He does it again and this time I go a little wild, raking my fingers down his back and bucking my hips up to meet the increased pace of his.
Everything he’s doing is magnified in the pulse between my thighs. It started as a slow flutter when he first entered me, but it’s built into a steady cadence. I focus on the feeling of him. I’m climbing high, fast, and he's coming with me. Throwing my head back, I relish in our connection, kneading my fingers into his back, his muscles flexing with control as he pushes me to a place I’ve never known, didn’t know existed.
I can see the moment when he loses it, loses himself as I have done. Gone is the controlled restraint and in its place is a wild abandon. Giving in to my demands, his hips thrust with a determined pace, driving forward, pushing harder until each strike elicits a guttural grunt from him and an exacting cry from me. Sweat pebbles on his brow, beading and rolling, dropping to my chest where it slides between my breasts. I watch, fascinated, as his eyes follow it down and the black of his pupils blur into the blue with a need so powerful it would scare me if I didn’t feel the exact same way.
My mouth finds his, licking and sucking and tasting. Who am I, but a needy, hungry woman begging for the only thing that can save me? Colin. Only him, it will always only be him. I give myself fully, joining him in the freedom to feel beyond good, beyond words.
“Don’t let me fall.” Sudden panic overtakes me as my body threatens to tumble from a cliff.
“I’ve got you, baby,” he whispers. “We’re going to fall together. Come with me.” The whisper turns to a demand, forcing me to hold on and together, we dive head first into an abyss of pleasure so deep and plentiful we drown in it, breathe it, and live through it.
“You're in my blood, in the air I breathe, Charlie.”

~this review may contain minor spoilers~
“If you agree to work with me, Charlie, I would like for you to enter into our agreement knowing little about me or my campaign. Base your perspective on what you learn firsthand. Can you promise me you'll forgo any research from this moment forward?”
Charlie Carter is a freelance reporter hired to work the campaign trail for presidential hopeful Colin McKenna. From the minute these two meet their attraction is clear to everyone around them, but they both fight it for very different reasons. Colin is on a path set out before him for years, his life has been organized and planned all with one goal in mind and the last thing he needs is a distraction. Charlie has a brutal history; one that has shaped the woman she is today, and one that could destroy all of Colin's hard work if linked with him. But their chemistry is hard to ignore, resulting in stolen moments of passion that ignite an affair neither were prepared for. The more they are together the more Charlie realizes she is not the only broken soul in their mix, the deeper she falls the more terrified she becomes of her past coming back to haunt her. But what happens when she realizes that someone else in their midst is harboring secrets far more damaging than hers, who will survive the fallout?
That's what scares me the most: the unknown. I revel in the odd magnetic pull, the exciting sexual attraction, and the ease and comfort simply there between us. It's all very exciting, but at the same time the path we're taking is blurred. How is it possible anything between us can end well?
I love when an author is able to take me by surprise and Elizabeth Miller certainly does that, this book was nothing like I expected. Yes the sex was smokin', but beyond that the emotions this will drag out of you are heartbreaking. Charlie and Colin are two very broken individuals who have been through so much already in life, and are completely caught off guard by their reactions to one another. But they also help each other to heal and feel things in a way they never thought they would be able to again. It causes some panic and confusion that results in them occasionally lashing out and showing some very stubborn reactions to their situation. Colin was hott-as-hell and Charlie was way stronger than she gave herself credit for, all you wanted was for them to be able to finally find some happiness. What I wasn't expecting, was in no way prepared for, and a little miffed about, was the ending. It's no secret that I am not a fan of cliffhangers and this one really packs a punch~I did the scream/cry WTF over and over and over... Seriously dude, I will be climbing the walls waiting to see where this sadistic author takes us next. I would still highly recommended this book to anyone who likes their steam mixed with some tears, a whole lotta secrets and doesn't mind having their heart cut out by the end.
My existence seems very black-and-white prior to walking into the bright, effervescent world of Colin McKenna. My stomach heaves at the thought. He has indelibly changed my future; whether it's a positive or negative change is yet to be seen.
