Description from the publisher:

When you lose all hope, what's left to live for?

The darkness claws at Raine Sims, bringing her farther in.

There was no escaping it and no one to bring her out of it. The burden of loss weighs heavily on her, reminding her every day that there are no guarantees in life. Every day is a struggle, every day she puts on a facade just to get through. She's already lost her husband to divorce and now her child in death…It's all too much to grasp.

But a chance encounter with Sly Wilkes is all it takes to come completely undone.

Sly Wilkes is always in control, in every situation, including the bedroom. He's mysterious, and Raine has definitely piqued his interest. However, getting to know her isn’t all that easy. Raine’s guarded and believes she deserves to feel the pain and the darkness that surrounds her.

Will Sly be able to help Raine see she deserves more?

Or will the pain forever remain?


This is a stand-alone story/ not part of a series.

A little bit of drama, a smidge of BDSM, and a lot of sweetness and love against a backdrop of unbearable loss. 

Likable characters that I could relate to, since I do know the devastating depression that follows the loss of a child for everyone involved in that child’s life.

I found the writing to be a little simplistic. Unfortunately, far too much time was spent on trivialities.  Though well written and added to the story, they weren’t what the story was about.  Every time I thought, “finally, some juice, some meat, some….thing!!” the situation was resolved in a sentence or two instead of being developed.

This is the first book I have read from Renea Porter and I will soon be picking up her newest release, Butterfly Effect.
