I loved this book! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it was too short. This novella had the potential to be an absolutely awesome novel. There was suspense, drama, love, steam....
Trace and Skye had been high school sweethearts before she went off to New York to fulfill her dream as a dancer. Trace broke it off with her in a not so very nice way because he didn't want to hold her back and be the reason she didn't get to live her dream. Trace joins the military and disappears. When he comes back, he starts a very successful security business in Chicago. Skye has fled New York because of a stalker. The only person she knows that can help her is Trace so she seeks him out. He can't believe she has come back to him and now that she is back, he isn't going to let her get away a second time. Some men left a mark on a woman, a mark that went far beneath the skin. Trace had marked her years before."Have you ever wanted something so badly..." Trace whispered as he bent his head, "that you couldn't think about anything else? All you feel is need. An endless desire that churns through you."
I really would have loved this story more if it had been longer, but it was a great story despite the shorter length of it.
