From the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Ache comes a blistering new novel filled with danger, secrecy, and a desire that can’t be sated…
Foreign war correspondent Tanner Thomas is addicted to living on the edge. Needing the adrenaline rush of his job to help him cope with a personal loss, he throws himself back into the game, concentrating all his energy on getting the next big story.
But when he meets his new photojournalist, Beaux Croslyn, he can’t help but feel like he’s losing his focus—and maybe risking more…
With secrets she won’t address, Beaux is far from your ordinary woman. Determined to keep her distance, she’s willing to pull Tanner in closer and hide behind the sparks flying between them. But as Beaux’s past begins to put their relationship—and their lives—at risk, Tanner’s determination to find the truth puts them both in jeopardy.
He's ready to chase her to the ends of the earth to find out if what they had was real, or if the danger surrounding them was just an exquisite heat fated to burn out…

Tanner Thomas is everything I had hoped he would be, Alpha with a big heart and willing to put his life on the line to get the next story, he is an adrenaline junk with a big teddy bear heart. Everything about him just sucks you!!
Then there is Beaux or BJ as many call her, she is a strong willed independent woman willing to go above and beyond to get the next best shot to tell her story. She doesn't back down and is willing to fight for what she wants and believes in. Beaux is the type of woman that will give Tanner a taste of what he dishes out with quick and witty comebacks!!
When Beaux and Tanner meet it isn't love at first site, it honestly is more like hate at first site with some killer sexual tension. Watching these two have a battle of the wills over just about anything they can have an opposite view. It isn't until they finally put their differences aside that these two make a killer couple and killer team.
But not everything is what is seems with either person, but sometimes when life tries to bring you down and tear you apart you must decide if at the end of the day what is truly worth fighting for .
This story had its ups, downs, twist and turns that threw me for a loop that I definitely was not expecting. I loved this story Kristy did an amazing job of making this story realistic and not instant and easy love.
