{Synopsis} –Infinite possibilities….
Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

{My Thoughts} – Amy Bensen is a young woman with secrets. She has a past that is hidden, a past she cannot share. She is taking place in some sort of witness protection/ relocation program. She is running, running from an unknown person that wants her dead. Her life is a mess, it’s been turned upside down and she hardly knows who she is anymore.

I enjoyed reading this book, it fast paced and attention grabbing from the first couple of pages. I didn’t stop reading it until I had finished it. I like how it seems to be about trusting in one’s own personal judgment, trying to discover one’s self, love, regret and more.

When I had finished this book I was in shock how it had ended. I was thinking no, no this can’t be the end. I want to know what happens. Honestly I do not think that book two is going to be released soon enough.
