"Book Two of the Heart of Justice Series"
Celeste Rice's aunt that raised her after her parents death
dies, leaving Celeste her home. Celeste feels like it is the
perfect time to make changes in her life and takes some
chances, so she moves back to her hometown after being gone
for 10 years. Those chances include finding out exactly
what good sex is preferably with Mick MacGilvary.
She and Mick share a troubled past and an undying
friendship. When they were teenagers, Mick saved her from an
attempted rape, becoming her knight in shining armor
forever. Ten years ago, she ran from herself and from Mick,
scared of the potential for violence she saw in him.
Mick is now a member of the elite SWAT team living life on
the edge of danger and violence. Celeste's life has been
torn apart over and over by violence and as much as she
hungers for Mick, she can't let go of her fears for his safety.
Mick has even greater concerns for Celeste's safety as her
ex-boyfriend, Darrell, has followed her home, stalking her
every move. Darrell is a well respected psychologist,
relishing his descent into evil, becoming a true sociopath.
After Mick confronts him, Darrell ups his deadly game of cat
and mouse. If Darrell has his way, Celeste will end up his
or dead, but the cop definitely has to go.
This is a steamy hot read, full of sexual tensions and
growing passions. Celeste and Mick learn to overcome their
past traumatic experiences and live in the now. The couple
interacts extremely well, you can see the closeness they
shared growing up. You can feel the tension as their
friendship turns into love. I also liked the interaction
between Mick and his adopted brothers. Darrell's sociopath
tendencies are very well portrayed, giving you a sense of
sliding deeper into madness. Overall a very good,
