❤❤ Glass Ceilings by AM Madden ❤❤

When a perfect new love is shattered, two hearts will do anything to pick up the pieces. In this sizzling novel from the bestselling author of Stone Walls, irresistible heat leads to sensual thrills—and a secret that changes everything.

Two years ago, Nick Farley was undercover as a bartender in Chicago. The tough-as-steel FBI agent was working all the angles to build a case against a local crime syndicate, but even his intense focus was no match for the sight of Angela Cavello’s plump pink lips pulling on her drink. All Nick got was one night—the longest, hottest, sweetest night of his life. It could have been the beginning of something real. Instead, she walked away—and Nick watched her go.

Angela has made some mistakes in her life, but Nick was never one of them. Nor was the baby boy he doesn’t know about. But Angela has been running from a stalker for so long that she’s forgotten how to feel safe. So when Nick suddenly reappears in her life, Angela faces a moment of truth. She wants to trust him and reveal her secrets—her life and the life of their son may depend on it—but first she needs to know that Nick can handle her past, and promise the one thing she most craves: a future together.

Glass Ceilings is meant for mature audiences 18+ due to sexual content and adult situations. Glass Ceilings is a stand alone novel from the True Heroes Series.

I've never read AM Madden. So when offered an arc of this book by the publisher, I gladly took it. I'm glad I did. This clearly became a case of being introduced to a new author who's work I really liked and will gladly read again.

This book pulled me in from the get go. I'm not usually a fan of insta-love but there was something about the mysteriousness of Angela that surrounded their relationship that kept me wondering. It added to the addiction of the story. 

AM did a great job of time hopping from past to present. Not all stories can pull it off, it can be boring if not done properly. That wasn't the case here. AM have us tiny snippets just at the right time to keep us wondering, keep us invested, and keep us on our toes.
AM also does a great job of throwing a twist in a plotline you totally won't expect. The players in the game definitely changed and surprised me...and I loved it. The characters are ones I found myself silently pulling for. Eve and Jase were a great addition, as crazy as they were. And who wouldn't fall in love with fruck loving Nicholas.

I really liked the flow, the plot and the writing style. Like I said, I've never read AM Madden before, but I'll be sure to pick her up from now on.
