Lawd, this story will have you alternating between turning the fan on to get rid of the overwhelming heat generated by the story and then reaching for tissues due to the heartbreak that the MC experienced/went thru. This is a short yet so emotionally packed read filled with sexual tension and eroticism throughout this novella/story. Rion Ward is an ex mob guy who now owns his own legal business(es) when a blast from his past comes back into his life and into his sex club Lick--Harper Shaw . She was the one who has always haunted him.
Harper lost her baby several years back and now she is a widow. She is coming out of deep freeze and the only man she ever wanted, truly wanted back then and now for sex-really for anything was Rion but he turned her away. Harper isn’t going to give up and tries again now , thinking he wouldn’t possibly turn her away again. What we see is this intricate shifting between this couple- how he wants but is afraid ; how she pushes but is afraid. It’s a push and pull until suddenly everything is broken. Will Rion wake up to the fact his love is there willing to fight for him, and will Harper be willing to fight for their love?
This is a great start to a new storyline that Entangled Publishing is starting called Scorched and this is one book is from the 1st of the new start of that line. I truly enjoyed this series and this books feels like it ends on a HFN ending which maybe there will be a wrap up or more about Rion and Harper sometime down the road. I know there is more to their story. For this being the first, it is a really awesome start and I cannot wait to read more from the author and publisher with books like this.

My rating: 4.5 stars ****
**I was given an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review***
