Tyler Wilde moves to Black Widow, Texas, to join the Blue Guardians, a local biker club that helps abused women and children. He’s intent on starting his life over, but a small piece of his past collides with his present when he runs into the local waitress, Annie Carter.
Annie’s the girl of his boyhood dreams, and Tyler can’t wait to get reacquainted with her. Only problem is, Annie’s engaged. But what has Tyler more troubled than the diamond on her finger is the bruise that graces her arm. To make matters worse, Annie’s abuser and intended husband is also the town’s Chief of Police.
Tyler is determined to offer Annie a safe haven, but she refuses his help until her life is hanging by a thread.
This book does an excellent job depicting what it’s like for an abuse survivor who wants nothing more than to love and to be loved. Because it’s romantic fiction, healing happens on an accelerated timetable and Annie, abused by her Chief of Police fiancé, readily welcomes love back into her life. I loved the story and the interaction between the various characters. The sex scenes are not overly explicit. The only real reason the the book did not earn a five out of five was because it really needs a good round of editing to smooth out a few rough edges regarding spelling and grammar. If the book goes through editing, I’d be glad to read the new version and edit this review accordingly.
