EMILY MICHAELS ~ Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong? Like you never fit in, or you weren’t good enough? This is how I have felt for as long as I can remember.
I see the world differently than everyone else, I feel everything differently and I reflect on life differently. And being different in my world is not a good thing.
I live in a place that’s divided between the rich and the poor, the beautiful and the unbeautiful, the prestigious and the mediocre. I have always belonged in the first category, because my father was the Governor of Georgia.

Growing up around people I could never relate with, my life had always been lonely, that was until my senior year when I met the one boy who would change my life forever. A boy who my parents would never approve of because he didn’t come from money or the same social class. He rode a motorcycle, had tattoos and was considered to be from the wrong side of the tracks. Yet he was still envied by many.

Ryder Jameson was someone who every guy feared, and one who every girl wanted to be touched by. He didn’t do attachments, or have friends… until me. And for the first time in my life I finally felt like I belonged. When I was with him, my different didn’t feel wrong or ugly. He made me feel beautiful- insightfully beautiful. Then one day my world came crashing down on me, and it would be six years before I'd once again see the boy I fell in love with.

RYDER JAMESON ~ After working my ass off I am given the opportunity of a lifetime, and if I pull it off I will be the youngest FBI agent to run one of the biggest undercover operations in history. Only the case that gets thrown in front of me leads me back to the one place I swore I would never return to, and to the only girl who’s ever mattered to me.

Except Emily Michaels is not the same girl I left behind. She still looks the same, she’s still beautiful inside and out, but there’s one thing that’s very different about her, one very big thing, and it’s something I didn’t think was possible.

Ryder and I come from a world where politics separates us and wealth defines us, but even after all this time we will not let it divide us.

Here is our story.

A trusting moment~

You can’t trust the majority of the people in this world, baby, believe me.”

His statement doesn’t surprise me, and I can even understand why he thinks that. He must see a lot of corruption in his line of work; not to mention he grew up with people he couldn’t trust. I suddenly remember that night all those years ago, when he showed up in my room vulnerable and hurt. He never talked about his parents when we were together. I brought them up once but he shut it down quickly, telling me they were off limits. It makes me wonder if he still feels the same.

Have you seen your parents since you’ve been back?” I ask cautiously.

He tenses under me for a brief second before forcing himself to relax. “No. I haven’t seen or spoken to them since I left, and I don’t plan to.”

I try to gauge his expression, wanting to know what he’s feeling, but he shows no emotion. I tread on carefully. “Maybe you should. Maybe they’ve changed and they miss you.”

A bitter laugh erupts from his throat. “No. Believe me, they don’t give a shit about me, they never did.”

My heart swells sadly to hear that. I never had parents who loved me either but at least I had Rosa and Summer. Ryder never had anyone. “I’m sorry,” I whisper sadly.

He shrugs. “Don’t be. It is what it is and I really don’t give a shit. It’s not like they were good parents. I never relied on them a day in my life. I’ve been on my own for as long as I can remember, and I like it that way.”

I’m sure it’s more complicated than that. No matter how terrible they were to him it must hurt to have nobody. Staring down at him, I reach up and trace his lips with my finger. “You will always have me, Ryder,” I tell him truthfully. “You can trust me.”

He grasps my wrist gently and places a familiar kiss on the inside of my palm, his gaze intense as he stares back at me. “There is no one in the world I trust more than you, Emily.” My heart explodes with happiness to know that, because I know he doesn’t trust easily.

I squeal in surprise when he swiftly flips me over onto my back and comes over top of me. His shirt rises past my hips and I moan when I feel his erection settle over my wet heat. Leaning down, he presses a soft kiss to my lips before entering me in one smooth thrust. I gasp then whimper at the ecstasy of being filled by him.

He stills deep inside of me and gazes down at me with an intensity that captures my breath. “You can trust me too, Em. I’m going to figure out what the fuck is going on here and I promise I won’t let anyone hurt you. I’ll take care of you and protect you. Just like I was always meant to.”

5- At a loss for words -Stars
~spoiler free review~

I know we can never have anything, but I can't leave her alone. Not yet. Not until my curiosity is filled. Although, I have a feeling I could find out everything there is to know about Emily Michaels and it still won't be enough.

They both grew up on opposite sides of the tracks, literally. In the world they live in, they never should have been more than a passing acquaintance, their sides never mixed but love found them anyway. Secrecy takes a toll on them but is necessary, if her father were to find out all hell would break loose. Neither of them care about the reasons they shouldn't be together and will do whatever it takes to hold onto one another... but fate has other plans and tears them apart leaving Emily broken and Ryder leaving town.
Six years later and Ryder has made a pretty good life for himself. He has an opportunity to get that promotion he's been after but it involves heading back to his hometown and facing the demons of his past, including the girl he left behind-the only girl who has ever owned his heart. But nothing could have prepared him for what he finds.

I really do believe he only left because he felt like he had no other choice, but I still have so many scars from all of it. I'm terrified to trust him and give him my heart again. Although, I fear he already has it. I think he always has.

It's not often that a book can completely take me by surprise, but this one does-and for that reason, I am going to make this brief. The synopsis does nothing to prepare you for what lies ahead and I'm actually pretty glad, it made the experience that much more fantastic. These characters will definitely win a place in your heart. They are both amazing people, even if adult Ryder kinda ticked me off at first. There are secrets, deceptions, and surprises hiding around every corner, life-altering revelations and some disturbing content. The sex scenes were abundant and hott-as-hell, I do love me some dirty talk and Ryder pulls that off droolfully. The secondary characters are a mix of hilarious, loyal, and deeply corrupt-it was hard sometimes to know who you could trust and who would surprise you. The emotions that this will pull out of you are vast and hard to contain. I am having a really hard time putting my feelings into words without giving too much away so I'm just gonna stop trying and leave you with this-READ THIS BOOK. It's a journey you won't soon forget and one that has shot K.C. Lynn right to the top of my One-Click-Addiction list.

This has to do with taking back what was taken from me, Emily, and that's you. You are fucking mine, you have always been mine, and I'm not going to let anyone get in my way from getting it back-including you.”

What authors and/or books inspired you to be a writer?
I love this question because as much as I love to write I absolutely adore to read. It’s what started my love of writing.
My #1 favorite author and my biggest inspiration is Lora Leigh. She was my first erotica book and she turned out to be my very favorite. I love her Alpha males and her female leads, their chemistry is always off the charts. The woman can write a steamy scene like no one’s business and I adore her writing style.
#2-Tessa Bailey- I love Tessa Baileys storys but what I absolutely love most about her is her writing. I think out of any author I have ever read she takes the cake for writing. The descriptive words she uses and the way she uses them is completely awe inspiring. I only hope to be able to use my words like she does one day.
#3- Colleen Hoover- Really need I say more? My favorite thing about Colleen’s books are no matter their story line there are times I am smiling so much that my cheeks hurt or my heart is melting in my chest. I also just love the lady herself. She is a class act.
#4- Simone Elkeles because Perfect Chemistry is my favorite YA book and one of my top reads. She was the first book I ever read in dual POV and I loved it.
#5- And last but not least I think I am going to have to go with Stephanie Meyer, really for one reason only. Twilight. It was twilight that actually started my love for reading and romance. If it wouldn’t have been for that book, I am not sure I would have ever found my love for it, and I definitely would have never thought to give writing a try.

K.C. Lynn is a small town girl living in Western Canada. She married her high school sweetheart and they have four amazing children: two lovely girls and a set of handsome twin boys. It was her love of romance books that gave K.C. the courage to sit down and write her own novel. When she is not in her writing cave, pounding out new characters and stories, she can be found living between the pages of a book, meeting new tattooed, hot alpha males with very big...Hearts.
