What the Hell have you done Ms. Harms?!  How could you do this to me?  I mean seriously, I have been a faithful and devoted reader since the beginning of your career and you have NEVER done this before!  

Ok, now that I have gotten that off my chest I will get to my review.  Wow, C.A. didn't just stick her toes into the romantic suspense genre, she dove in head first.  This was a fantastic first book in what I believe will be a best selling series.  Gabby and Josh are wonderfully written and suck you in so deep you don't know if you will ever surface again. I fell in love with both of them and their story is amazing, sweet, heartfelt, heartbreaking and leaves your heart shredded.  

Not only does the story leave you feeling all the things above, it also leaves you with a cliffhanger.  However, please do not let that stop you from reading this one!  I promise you this read is worth it and I know C.A. will make up for it by delivering a 5 star second book.  With that being said, please hurry Ms. Harms before I go crazy wondering what is going to happen!!



“I like the red ones,” Josh said before turning back toward the display of lingerie. “Oh, and this color. Is that teal?” He lifted up the pair of panties and held them out before him.

I smiled as a younger guy three feet away ducked his head in embarrassment.

“Now these would look fucking amazing on you. Damn, baby.” Josh’s eyes gleamed in excitement as he looked up at me. “I may go broke if you keep bringing me to places like these.”

I giggled as I grabbed the pink, lacy, and completely see-through nightie he held in his other hand.

“We’ll take one of these in every color you have,” he hollered to the clerk.

I hid my head against his chest and tickled his sides.

“What?” he grunted and tried to pull back from my assault. “You can’t blame me for trying, sweetheart.

Forget about getting dressed daily. I think you should live in these nighties.”

I tilted my head and looked up at him. “You are insatiable.” I rose up on my tiptoes, bringing my lips close to his. “And extremely adorable.”

He closed the distance and kissed me, wrapping his arm around my waist securely. His tongue rolled with mine, and for a moment I forgot we were standing in the center of a department store. Someone cleared their throat, and I broke the kiss to look over my shoulder. An older salesperson was giving us a disapproving glare.

“Sorry,” I offered. When I turned back to face Josh, he was grinning from ear to ear.

“So—” He waggled his eyebrows suggestively. “—we are getting some of these. Right?”

I lifted up the light pink nightie and shook it in front of his face. “We’ll get this one and the red one,” I assured him as I walked toward the sales clerk at the checkout counter. When I looked back over my shoulder, Josh was smiling brightly and following close behind.

“Now that’s my girl. Looks like tonight we’re staying in.”

I rolled my eyes and turned forward again as he chuckled.

C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.
