My 4-Star Review

Another great book from Kimberly Knight!  I wasn't sure of this book at first.  I don't usually get into the military books for some reason.  However, this really isn't a military book.

The character line-up in this book is so unique.  We have the abused wife, the ex-army turned male escorts, the abuser husband and the best friend of the abused wife.  These are all characters that are seen for who they are to the story.

Richard is a ruthless criminal who manipulated Autumn into loving and marrying him.  Autumn is the unsure and naive wife, afraid to stand up for herself or walk away from her marriage.  Gabe is the ex-Army Captain who lost his love in the line of fire while on deployment.  He and his best friend, Paul, have moved to Vegas to continue their careers as male escorts.

Chance meetings and instant attractions are the premise of this book.  Without those and secrets, this book wouldn't exist.  The plot twists are steadfast.  I almost got whiplash from them.  Although, I figured a some of it out eventually, the shock of the ties these characters have makes the book even more addictive.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I read it in one sitting.  I needed the ending something fierce.  I wasn't willing to put it down until I got to the end.

 
Kimberly Knight lives in the mountains near a lake with her loving husband and spoiled cat, Precious. In her spare time, she enjoys watching her favorite reality TV shows, watching the San Francisco Giants and San Jose Sharks kick butt, crushing candy on Candy Crush, playing computer games like World of Warcraft with Audrey Harte and online poker. Now that she lives near a lake, she plans on working on her tan and doing more outdoor stuff like...watching hot guys ski. However, the bulk of her time is dedicated to writing and reading Romance and Erotic fiction.
