She’s beautiful yet scarred beyond repair. 

He’s powerful and lethal, in and out of the ring. 

One act of kindness brought Sophie Parish far more danger than she could have ever imagined. Now she’s on the run, leaving behind her family and the only dream she’s ever had. 

Retired EFC fighter Kolan Slade’s life has been one endless battle after another. He has a dark past with an even darker desire—the only one he’s ever known. 

Until he meets Sophie. 

Intrigued by her raw beauty and the secrets she’s trying to hide, Kolan craves to know who she is and what she’s running from. 

Protecting her becomes his obsession and he’ll sacrifice it all to save her. But in the end her love will have him questioning himself and everything he thought he knew.

"We all have scars, Sophie, in one form or another."

Be prepared to be on edge, swoon and want to learn how too kick some butt too!  KC Lynn is back with another powerful couple!  KC could have taken this so much darker than she did, but I applaud her for the avenue she took.  It had hints ofdarkness, but it was done tastefully.  

Kolan is Katelyn's brother.  We had a chance to get glimpses of him in An Act of Salvation, so you know his backstory.  He's a retired EFC fighter whose had to battle through life.  Kolan doesn't give up control.  He needs it to survive.  Having grown up the way he did, control is his saving grace besides his sister Katelyn.  Control feeds the scars of my dark past and even darker soul.
When Sophie enters his life there is something about her that is messing with him....making him feel things he shouldn't.  He needs to know her, he's intrigued by her and what she's hiding.  Will Kolan allow someone to bring him to his knees or run away from what he's feeling? 

Little did I know, that one act of kindness would bring me a dangerous obsession
Sophie/Lia had the perfect life growing up until one moment changed her life.  As you learn her story my heart just ached for her.  She's had everything and everyone stolen from her.  The incredible strength she shows throughout the book is unbelievable.  She runs, but yet she continues on living the best way she can.  What she wants more than anything is to have her dreams, and family back...to be free from fear.   When she meets Kolan there is something about him...his presence is commanding, but yet there is something about him that makes her feel safe...Makes her trust him.  Will Sophie find the thing or someone to make her stay, fight and try to be free? 

"I want it," I whisper, my voice shaky.  It may be a mistake, but I have a feeling he will be the best mistake I ever make.

These two together were white hot!  I loved their connection and how they both seem to calm the darkness they both had.  They were passionate and I liked that they connected before jumping into bed.  Kolan was protective of her right from the get go and Sophie knew of his past, but saw that the rumors about him were wrong.  He was kind, sweet and trusting.  These two together just warmed me from my toes all the way up my body.  I adored both of them! 

I finally found peace again.  A feeling I never knew was possible for me until she came along. 

Of course I love seeing the rest of my favorites.  I can never seem to get enough of these characters.  I seriously want these characters and series to last forever...mmmkay!   
One word...Benny...oh my this kid had me cracking up.  He's such a great addition and I hope KC gives him a story when he's older.  He's like a mixture of all the guys in one...sweet, mouthy, funny and loving.  Great character! 

Make no mistake, Sophie.  You are different.  Tonight was different.  We are different.  Nothing or no one has ever compared to you.  You get me? 

KC of course brings her brilliant storytelling mind.   The plot flowed and has you on edge a few times.  Between their hot and steamy moments to the reason Sophie is running.  I don't know how she does it, but I have never ever been disappointed by anything KC has written.  She continues to surprise me with the characters, storylines and dialogue.  I have so many highlighted passages from this, it was hard to choose which ones I want to add...I can't do the whole book...lol.  And that cover is perfect, It's how I envisioned them.  

5 Pierced Stars!! 


Reaching my SUV, I place her feet on the ground and cage her against the passenger door, bracing both my hands on either side of her head. “And what about you, Lia?” I ask, dipping my head in close to hers. “Hmm? You know my secrets. What about yours?”

She might not know all of mine but she knows enough.

“What is it you want to know?” she asks, a slight tremble in her voice.

“I want to know who you are and where you came from. But more than anything, I want to know what you’re hiding under that scarf.”

The stark pain that enters her eyes strikes me to my fucking core. “Trust me, you don’t want to see what’s under there. I can’t even bear to look at it myself.”

“Nothing scares me.”

It’s a complete lie. She scares the hell out of me.

A heavy silence descends upon us, her pretty eyes wide and fearful.

“What are you so afraid of?” I ask.

Her breath hitches, emotion shining bright in her gaze. “Everything.”

There’s so much despair in that one word that I want to fucking kill whoever put it there. Unable to resist, I gently drop my forehead on hers, my jaw locking as I restrain myself from doing what I really want to do.

“I’m going to respect your privacy…for now. But one day, you’re going to tell me who made you so afraid. And if they’re still breathing—they won’t be for much longer.”

Her eyes fall closed, lip trembling as she tries to shield her pain from me. “Some secrets, Kolan, are best left unknown.”

“Not between us. The day will come when there will be no more secrets between us.”

Her eyes open, locking with mine, but she remains silent. I press my lips to her forehead then reach for the door handle. “Come on. Let’s go home.”
