Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s novel of dangerous secrets, dark pasts, and sizzling heat.

No one would guess that dedicated teacher Arden Forbes is a billionaire. His profession gives him a purpose that wealth alone can’t provide. He’s developing another passion, too, for Keera Thompson, the new principal. She’s beautiful, enigmatic, guarded, and - after a series of violent school break-ins - in need of protection. And Arden is eager to supply it. But what he wants most is to unearth the mysteries that surround her.

After a troubling past, Keera thought she’d be safe in this sleepy town and that she’d never be shaken again. Yet nothing has unsettled Keera more than her desire for Arden - honorable, gorgeous, and available when she craves him. But despite their explosive chemistry, when it comes to letting Arden in, Keera has her limits...and her secrets.

As the threats escalate, Keera fears that everything she’s been running from is closing in, and there’s only one man to trust. But will the truth drive Arden away...or will it bring the two closer than ever before?

Slow start- Poor acting

The action at the end somewhat made up for the lack of it in the beginning. There is some what of a cliffhanger but not so much of one to frustrate the reader. My biggest criticism for this series is the gal performing this book. Her sing song speech is very off putting. The way she tone speaks for the men is not how a man would speak.

Not bad but not engaging for me.

I had a hard time getting into this book. The characters seemed slightly flat so I think that might have been what threw this book off for me the most.

Melody new or old?

I'm trying to recall if i have read anything from Melanie before? Such a great read or listen actually. this one is a bit more difficult at times to follow than when you listen (read) Kian ... for me at least ... all those similar names ... I got a bit confused. at times. well several actually. ( :

So disappointed in this story. Child like imaginat

I was really looking forward to listening to this book. What an utter
disappointment.
The female character had her head up her butt so far she couldn't see sunshine. No one is that ignorant. It just isn't possible. The female narrator didn't help the story out either. She narrated like an excited child experiencing on fantastical adventure after another. Exceptionally poor story and narrator.

I'm not even sure why I gave this two stars. Probably one star would be generous.

Need a different narrator.

The narrator didn't try to make a difference in male and female characters voices. It through me off. This series was not as pleasurable.

didn't want the girl and guy to get Tierney

sometimes a couple seems all wrong for each other. the guy seemed awesome, but the girl will bring much drama. the reading was ok until the voices were attempted. if it wasn't for he said or the name of the characters I would have been lost. there were parts that seemed like good parts to story. some scenes seemed rushed.
