What a great addition to the series!
Deke Murphy and Maddie Hall have some very undeniable chemistry even after being apart for so many years so when Maddie comes to Deke for help he knows he will do everything in his power not only to help her but also to make her his again.
This book has a lot of twists and turns so pay attention and see if you can follow the clues because you may figure things out before the big reveal like I did but that didn't lessen the reveal at all because Ms. Blake does those in a big way, which I always enjoy.
This story is filled with Suspense and Steam in equal measures. I loved how Deke was with Maddie with introducing her to true BDSM even though they had a light D/s relationship when they were together in high school even if they didn't recognize it for what it was. She bloomed under his control and it was great to see how she trusted Deke even though he had broken her heart once before.
If you enjoy Romantic Suspense, Second Chance Romances, or BDSM Romances I would recommend this book to you.
