This is the beginning of a story... the story of two people who were meant to be together. Why? Because unknown to them, they shared terrifying pasts and the cruel circumstances of their births doomed both of them to a life of hell. Two strangers ... one night ... one accidental meeting that changed their lives forever. Gabriella Martinelli, Manhattan psychiatrist had only one goal in life—to help abuse victims avoid the horrors she’d experienced herself. She worked late, volunteered, and donated her services to anyone who needed them. Life was good ... until her nightmare resurfaced. He found her, and began stalking her, and she knew he wouldn’t stop until he destroyed every ragged piece of her. Kolson Hart, Manhattan’s most eligible bachelor, was ruled by his dark past. He liked control, from the boardroom to the bedroom and didn’t care to be involved with someone whose life was just as screwed up as his was. But one look at Gabriella short-circuited everything. Want ... desire ... need ... will sometimes drive a man to do things he swore he never would. He freed her from a life of fear ... When he couldn’t even save himself.

OMG I didn't know what this book was about when I started reading it. I went in blind and I loved it. If you read dirty nights you will know who Gabby is. This book will leave you on the edge of your seat craving to know more.

Gabby hasn't really been close to males. That is until Kolson walked into her life. Even though she embarrassed herself around him she wants to get to know him. She just wants to have a normal life. Can she finally break free of her nightmare? Will Kolson stay and help her? Or will he run when he learns of her secret?
Kolson likes to be mysterious. He doesn't want anyone to know anything about him unless he tells them the information. He is surprised by his reactions to Gabriella. He doesn't usually care about others. She is going to be the changing piece in his life. He is scared to open up to her about his past. Even though he broke her down and forced her to tell him her secrets. Can he open up to her? Or does he lose her?
This book is amazing!!! I really recommend reading it and all other A.m. Hargrove books. She is my go to author and always delivers a great book that leaves me salivating for more. I hate the wait between books, but it is SO worth it to have these amazing stories.
~ A.M. Hargrove Bio ~
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again). So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and reEmergent), Dark Waltz, Tragically Flawed, Tragic Desires, and Exquisite Betrayal. Other than being in love with being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups. (If you're wondering, it didn't happen EXACTLY that way, but….) You can also find her on Goodreads as Emerson St. Clair. Her novella series, Dirty Nights, is available and those are a little dark, a little erotic and a lot sexy!
