45886830._SY475_He’s afraid of losing his grip. She’s about to untie his last knot…

Megan Asher may have a thriving legal career, looks and self-confidence to spare, but they mean little without the love of her life. Trevor’s returned from Afghanistan a haunted man, emotionally distant and unwilling to connect—except in bed. Then even that fragile thread snaps. Brokenhearted, she is forced to call off their wedding and, after a few months’ separation, try to move on.

With every aspect of his life spinning out of his once-legendary control, Trevor Wyatt convinces himself that Megan is better off—and safer—as far from him as possible…until he comes home for his brother’s wedding to discover Megan is dating. Realizing what he’s thrown away, Trevor vows to breach the fortress Megan’s built around her heart. They clash in a cataclysm of rekindled passion that unleashes the very demons he’s sought to leash.

Shaken but determined, Megan takes the ultimate risk and slips past Trevor’s defenses to hand him control in the one place she can—the bedroom. She prays her seduction will be the first step to heal her hero and their love.


I loved this book!

The passion and heat in this one will just capture you and won’t let you go. I loved every moment between this couple.

We follow a soldier who just came back from Afghanistan and the lawyer he wishes he would have went after earlier. There is a lot of control with the male character (as you can probably tell from the title) as he tries to find a balance in his life.

As the story gets deeper, I found myself just dying for them to get together, and the author does not disappoint.

I gave this one 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend for romance lovers who prefer intense, high-heat scenes!
