Skye Sullivan knows that someone is watching her. Not just watching—stalking her. Months ago, Skye was involved in a dangerous car accident. The accident ended her dancing career and sent her fleeing back to Chicago. Skye is convinced that her stalker caused the crash, and she fears that he won’t stop pursuing her, not until she’s dead.
When someone breaks into her apartment in Chicago, Skye turns to the one man she believes can protect her—Trace Weston. Once, Trace was her lover. Two lost souls, they’d come together in a firestorm of need and desire. But then Trace had pushed her away. He’d joined the military, vanishing from her life. She’d put all of her emotion into dancing, and she’d tried to forget him.
Now Trace is one of the most successful men in the United States. Rich, driven, and carrying dark secrets, he agrees to help Skye. He’ll protect her from the danger that lurks in the darkness, but Trace wants more than to just be a guard for Skye.
He wants her. And he’ll take her. The years have changed him, hardened him. He’s not just a poor kid from the streets any longer. Now, he can have anything—or anyone—that he wants. And the one woman he has always wanted has just come back into his life. He won’t let her go again.
But with the threats mounting against Skye, she suspects that her stalker may be intimately close. He’s a man who knows her too well. As his attacks grow ever more dangerous, she realizes that if she trusts the wrong man, she could be making a fatal mistake.
Lust. Love. Obsession.
Just how far would you go in order to possess the one person you want the most?

I could not put this book down! I couldn’t for the life of me figure out WHO DONE IT? It was so bad for me. I read in the bar last night! Not kidding here! READ.IN.A.BAR! Skye has a stalker. Or does she? She moves from New York to Chicago. The stalker follows. Cue in old friend/lover Trace. (great name btw, my son has the same name) Skye seeks out Trace in need of help with her stalker issue. These to were sizzling together. Trace is a man on a mission for two things, winning back the woman he loves and protecting her by catching the “stalker.” Who the HELL is it?!???
Okay, so my reasoning for the 3.5 stars. This book was way to short. Perhaps with more of the back story between Skye and Trace the reader would have more of a connection with the characters. The who done it portions of this book had me guessing at every page. So yes that part was great. The “steam scenes” were great as well. Wrapping it up I liked the story line, the mystery, and the steam. With some added length, back story, perhaps more of Trace’s day to day life this could easily be a 4-5 star read.
