Tilly Maxwell is a freelance photographer in New York City who happens to take the right photo at the wrong time. While on a shoot, she captures in the background of one of her pictures a man who’s just committed a murder. A man whose perfect crime has now been foiled because of chance. Because of one ill-timed click of the camera, a photographer must be silenced, and Tilly’s now on the run for her life.
John Osby, Oz, an ex Army Ranger who is now one of CEP’s best, is shocked to see Tilly when she calls on the agency needing help. Talk about a blast from the past. They attended high school together and he remembers her as the quiet, adorably awkward and somewhat nerdy photographer he'd had a crush on, but because their lives were so different, he didn’t dare cross the line with her, except for one drunken kiss. But now they're older, she’s blossomed into a real beauty and he intends on crossing any line he can to protect her… and have her as his own.
A woman who adamantly guards her heart encounters the one man who may be able to break down her barriers. When the past collides with the present, boundaries will be pushed and unbreakable hearts will be tested to the limit.
My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This is not the first book I've read by Harper, and it damn sure won't be the last. Harper know who to write a fantastic story with equally fantastic characters. They way she writes just pulls you into the story and doesn't let go until the end. There's always more going on than you think, and she pulls it all together wonderfully at the end. Oz and Tilly are a great couple. They have history, not all good. Yeah, they fight the attraction, but then when they give in - watch out! Sparks fly and it's fabulous! They still have to be careful because someone is trying to kill Tilly, and they're not certain who it is just yet. I'm not going to give away any more because this is one of those books that you really neeed to read to get it all. I loved it, and will be going back to read the first book in the series to get a fuller understanding of everything. I'm looking very much towards the third book coming out for more excitement, danger and that sexiness that Harper add into the story that makes it that much better.
