Lincoln Alexander might think he’s too old for me, but he’s wrong. A fourteen-year age gap is nothing when you’re desperate to feel alive again.

The wealthy business owner has only ever seen me as off limits, but he has the power to put me back together—to chase away my demons with just his touch.

So, for one intense night, without him knowing who I am, I put my trust and pleasure in his hands.

My plan is to walk away, ready to move forward with my life, but when the doctor tells me that I’m pregnant, I find myself taking two steps back.


One night isn’t enough with the masked, green-eyed woman who walked into my club and turned my world upside down.

After I gave her what she wanted, again and again, she walked away without a trace.

When I finally discover the identity of the mysterious beauty who stole my heart on Valentine’s Day—and the secret she’s been keeping—my heart stops.

Ellie Bardot is all grown up, but I remember the innocent girl she was, even if she doesn’t. I hate that she lied to me, almost as much as I hate that I still want her.

Now I’m torn between being the man she needs me to be and doing the right thing.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: this story contains subjects that may be sensitive for some readers. Content warnings (which contain major spoilers) can be found on Nikki’s website.

This book…This series…was just EVERYTHING! I LOVED it ALL!!!

While I was reading THE RISK OF FALLING I knew I needed Lincoln and Ellie's story, not only were they great secondary characters but there was a pull to them that said there story wasn't finished they needed their own HEA and I am soooo thrilled that Nikki Ash gave it to us.

This story takes place after THE RISK OF FALLING but there are events that occurred in that book that are mentioned in this one, but even more than then that, the events have influenced the way Ellie is currently living and it plays a big part of her life in this book so I would recommend reading that book prior to this one. Those events are not only mentioned in this book but more detail is given. I think going in knowing Ellie's emotional state and her feelings towards Lincoln will enhance this story for readers.

Lincoln Alexander owns a Sex Club, amongst other businesses, and with Valentine's Day coming up he is in the midst of planning a masquerade Party. Little did he know this party would change his life in a way he never imagined.

Ellie Bardot has been hiding a secret from her sister for years, a secret that has taken over her life a life that she wants back. The way she plans on reclaiming her life is to go to Lincoln's Masquerade Party and prove to him that a fourteen year difference is nothing and that he's the one to help her live again.

I don't know what else I can say about this story other than I really Loved it, and highly recommend it to readers that enjoy STEAMY Contemporary Romances, Age Gap Romances, Friends to Lovers Romances, Surprise Pregnancy Romances, Hidden Identity Romances, or Romantic Suspense Reads.

Happy Reading!!!
