Emotional angst (the guilt!) and steamy sex are about equal in this intense, forbidden love story.

Knox, an MMA fighter turned tattoo artist lost his brother Connor, also a fighter two years ago. It devastated his family, and his brother's wife Eden who works with him at his tattoo parlor. But Knox has kept a secret all this time - he's in lust with his brother's widow. Little does he know that Eden feels the same! Can they work through their issues together, give each other multiple orgasms, and get their happy ending?

This delivers exactly what's promised - a hard hitting, intense, super steamy romance. The guilt that Knox and Eden feel over being attracted to each other is a constant in their lives, but doesn't stop them from finally acting on their chemistry. Knox feels responsible for his brother's death as Connor followed in his footsteps with his short lived fighting career. Eden is ready to put Connor's death behind her. She feels more guilty about moving on (no matter whom it's with) because of the effect it will have on Knox's parents whom she lives with at the start of the story.

Dealing with all these feelings takes its toll on them both until they can acknowledge that they love each other and want a future together no matter what anyone else thinks. Knox's brothers are on board (wondering if they are going to get stories?) and it all works out in the end. The steam factor is high in this one so consider yourself duly warned! I've been a big fan of Naima Simone since I first discovered her and while this one has a more limited plot than some (I particularly like the Bachelor Auction series) it's another great read.

Note: a copy of this story was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for review.
