Description from the publisher:
**Mature Content Warning** This is a New Adult novel recommended for ages 17+ due to language, sexual content, and mature subject matter.

Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.

Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.

Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.

But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.


This is the second book in the series, but each stands completely on its own.

What to say without giving too much away… Evan Dorsey has known great loss in his life and has built walls around himself to avoid the pain of losing anyone else.  Sierra Stratton meets him at the wedding of mutual friends and the rest should be your typical love story.  Nothing is typical when it comes to this love story.

I loved the mix of love story with a proper crime mystery.  Ms. Thomas has nailed down a winner in this.  The components that touched me the deepest I can’t say without giving spoilers, but I will say that this is a must read for anyone who has ever loved or wants to love.  This is the first of Ms. Thomas’ books that I have read.  I can guarantee it won’t be the last.

I was able to recently meet Ms. Thomas when she was a guest on a panel discussing the New Adult category of books, as we live in the same area of the country.  She is a charming woman with an insightful position as one of the pioneering authors of this developing category.  I look forward to more from her.
