When she rescues a prominent businessman’s battered wife, Quinn is targeted by the woman’s violent husband.

Quinn is the woman Jace has always wanted-and she’s strictly hands-off. But keeping her safe means taking her to his small apartment…and his bed. So for one unforgettable night, Jace will give in to the temptation he can no longer resist. One night of forbidden hunger. One night he prays will be enough to satisfy a lifetime of longing….
Review [with spoilers]:
This was the first book I read written by Kira Sinclair and I have to say I loved it, so it probably won’t be the last.
First of all, let me just say that, in general, I’m not a fan of the angle of lust or deep feelings for the dead boyfriend/fiancée/husband’s brother. I usually don’t read this books because I always feel it’s very difficult for an author to pull this off. But Kira Sinclair totally did it! So, I’m happy I let my curiosity get the best of me and I can say that the cover played a big part in this (another first!).
The characters were strong and the story was captivating, I couldn’t put my kobo e-reader down after starting it. Jace’s guilty feelings were somewhat understandable but, when the author discloses how his brother died, his intense struggle made perfect sense. The fact that Quinn was being targeted for, basically, helping a woman who had an abusive husband, also felt realistic as well as all the details regarding her job.
There are two reasons why I’m not giving this book 5 stars: 1) the story jumped forward in a few moments that could probably benefit the story if better explored; 2) Quinn’s lack of common sense when she was threatened, I mean the guy was rich, well connected, suspected of being involved in shady businesses and she thought he was harmless? Her reaction just didn’t seem very realistic.
I totally recommend this book to all the readers that love a HEA.
I received a copy of this book for free, through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review .
