First comes love, then comes fear . . .
After a whirlwind romance, Darby Hayes Grisom married the man of her dreams. Smart, handsome, ambitious-Sean was everything she always thought she wanted. Little did she know that one year later that dream would turn into her worst nightmare. Sean is moody, angry, violent. Violent enough to kill. When Darby realizes she's pregnant she knows Sean will never let her go.
Attorney Jack Kavanaugh is the only person Darby can trust to help her with her plan to save herself and her baby. But the deeper Jack gets involved in protecting Darby, the deeper the feelings between them become. A complication Darby can't afford-because her husband is watching their every move and he'll do anything to get her-and their baby-back.
I was drawn to this book by the book cover first and the summary second. Now, this is how you start off a new series. This book was so easy to read. It was smooth. A bonus as I was reading this book on my computer. I found myself not wanting to step away and keep reading.
Darby is my kind of woman. A strong, intelligent woman. Oh, who just happens to be a sharp shooter. So don't mess with her. The author did a great job of making sure that Darby was not painted as a victim but a fighter. While, I did appreciate the romance between Darby and Jack; I kind of wished that there was no romance. Darby was coming out of a violent relationship only to fall into Jack's arms (predicable). Yet, the few intimate scenes in the story were very brief like PG. I look forward to checking out the next book in this series.
