Vic Savian is a man that knows exactly what he wants. Once he sees his neighbor, Niall he knows that he wants her and will do what he needs to so that he can have her. That comes about easier than he thought when he rescues her from an overzealous date. He is surprised by how strong and instant the attraction he feels for her truly is.

Niall Chandler has a painful past that she has worked on to overcome. When she first sees Vic she is instantly attracted to him. When he rescues her from her date she sees there is more to him than she first realized. When that rescue leads to a night of passion without her even knowing his last name she is quickly realizing that she just might be in over her head especially since it is completely out of character for her.

When Niall’s past comes back to haunt her she has to try and explain things to Vic or she just might lose a man that she has come to love. First she is going to have to work through things to find herself and the strength she needs to tell Vic everything. Vic quickly realizes that there is a lot more to Niall than he was first willing to see. Now he is going to have to find a way through his feelings so that he can see things clearly and just maybe have a chance for the love of a lifetime. They are both going to have to find the strength they will need to handle each other’s past so that they can have a future together.

This story has a lot of emotional twists to it that keeps you reading until the very end. You see how the pasts of the characters shape who they are now. You also see how they have to work through and deal with those pasts so that they have a chance to have a promising future as long as they are willing to listen and talk to each other. With all the emotional roller coasters in this one you hate to put it down until the very end.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
