This is one of the most emotionally complex stories that I have read. You feel the conflicting emotions of Chloe Crew who was rescued after being kidnapped and Lucas Burke who aided in her recovery along with her brother Zane. Lucas, an undercover DEA Agent, kept Chloe safe while in captivity, but was unable to prevent her from being drugged by her captors. Chloe finally seeks help from a therapist to overcome her tragic past in order to be the mother that her two children deserve. She also need ...more

WOW, just WOW!! I don’t know how she does it, but this very talented author has given us another extraordinary story.
The story of Lucas Burke and Chloe Crew, whom we met in the previous book, is one that is heartbreaking, and touching.
These two have gone to hell and back. He as an undercover DEA agent who had to act the part not only to stay alive, but also to safeguard Chloe while she was held kidnapped.
Both are still struggling to get back to their previous lives and when it seems they might n

Chloe and Lucas
Could be read as standalone but the series has interlinked characters so I recommend reading the series in order, it’s amazing and addictive.
Lucas has always intrigued me so I loved having his story expanded
( I feel there’s still more to come tho)
Lucas was a wonderful alpha male caring loyal and most of all he trusted in Chloe implicitly
Chloe had a bit of a love hate going on with her brother Zane.
I think she always wanted to get their relationship back on track but didn’t kno

This book was soooooo good. Chloe was recovering from being kidnapped by drug dealers that addicted her to heroin. She's trying to take back her life and stop being scared. Lucas was undercover with the drug dealers and tried to keep Chloe as safe as possible. Now home the threat is back.
If you like a great romantic suspense story this is it. I was biting my nails and holding my breath. This whole series will keep you on your toes. I highly recommend this book and series.

Loved it!

Realistic, heart breaking , and so real of women who simply try to survive and live, but end up in fire scary situations.
Truly, loved the reason for the story, the way you intertwined different mini themes, abuse, addictions, safety being first, and feelings of inadequacy of stopping what happens to one!
Simply, a terrific story!

But Laramie ?????!!!!!!
When?!!!!

Casey Hagen has always had a way of pulling my heartstrings with her stories but this one brought me down.
There are issues of kidnapping, drugs being used and rebuilding lives and family relationships.
This is my absolute favorite of her books and that says a lot considering all of her stories. This is a 20 star plus read. Unfortunately they only give us 5 to work with.

Excellent story great book.

This book has all the dynamics; research, writing, timing, emotions and a HEA. I read the entire book in one sitting.

I received this book as part of an ARC review. The only complaint I have is the ending. Please say you have the next book out real soon. Chloe and Lucas are survivors and in each other find someone who understands them. Chloe on the advice of her therapist learns to trust her instincts and they say that Lucas is good for her. Lucas doesn't think he is but she convinces him. When things are going good for them, Vic and Sorelli come to mess it up for them. Vic is thought to be dead but he was work ...more
