For three years, ballet teacher Natalie Taggart has lived across the hall from grumpy, reclusive, sexy Greer Wilde. Save for a handful of hellos and the occasional heated glance, they never spoke to each other.
Until the morning Greer lands on her doorstep, bleeding, beaten, and bullet-riddled.
Greer doesn’t need or want her help. He has only one goal: revenge. And nobody—not his brothers, and certainly not his too-hot-for-his-sanity next-door neighbor—is going to get in his way.
I confess – I haven’t read any of the other books in this series. Nor do I think you need to in order to enjoy this story, although inevitably, details will be filled in should you choose to do so. This book is, however, perfectly easily read as a standalone.
And the story is a good one. The author has developed characters with whom it is easy to make an emotional connection – the hopelessness felt by Greer, the frustration felt by Natalie. Both are drawn on the page with deft strokes.
But don’t think that the author has sacrificed the plot to concentrate on the relationship. This is a tense storyline which kept my interest throughout.
A one sitting read.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Tonya Burrows wrote her first romance in 8th grade and hasn’t put down her pen since. Originally from a small town in Western New York, she suffers from a bad case of wanderlust and usually ends up moving someplace new every few years.

When she’s not writing about hunky military heroes, Tonya can usually be found at a bookstore or the dog park. She also enjoys painting, watching movies, and her daily barre workouts. A geek at heart, she pledges her TV fandom to Supernatural and Dr. Who.
