An all-the-feels novel of fierce love overcoming a dark past from the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling THIS MAN series.

Izzy White knows of the darkness in this world. After all, she escaped it long ago. Determined not to let her past beat her, Izzy has a secure, stable life with a job she loves in nursing. But one act of kindness will completely upend everything she's so carefully built-putting her right back in the crosshairs of danger she's been so desperate to avoid.

When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can't help thinking she's been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane's notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he's tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away.

As Theo's demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.

My love for her holds me prisoner

Her faith leaves me in awe

Her hope encourages mine

And her touch reaches my soul

She is my peace

My cure

My love

"Most people seem to put as much distance between themselves and Theo as possible. I, however, have a confusing urge to close that distance. I want to be near to him. He has a magnetic pull, luring me closer, and I'm helpless to its power."

There's just something special about JEM's writing, she's a word wizard and I'm under her spell. I can't get enough of her tortured alpha's. She makes me love them, demons and all, every damn time.

Izzy has a painful past that she's hiding from. She's come a long way and is proud of what she has accomplished. She's managed to put herself through nursing school and get a good job at a local hospital. She shares an apartment with her best friend who knows her secrets and is very supportive. She is content and all is well in her world...until she took a shortcut that changed her life.

Theo is intimidating in the daylight, but just imagine how it would be to encounter that giant at night in a dark alley. Everywhere he goes people around him separate to make room for him. They avoid contact and step away. She's such a tiny little thing who went out of her way to help a stranger that was in trouble. He expected her to cower in fear, but she didn't. She wasn't afraid of him.

Izzy tries to go back to her life and forget him but that's not easy to do. Especially when he decides to pursue her. She's curious about him and wonders what he does for a living. "I'd already figured out that Theo danced on the wrong side of the law, I just didn't know how exactly." He lives in a mansion and wears expensive suits. She wants to ask questions, but then she might have to answer some herself.

What an exciting web the author weaved with these two amazing characters. They both have secrets they want to keep and painful pasts that are affecting their present. Neither expected nor have a clue what to do with the unexplainable connection they feel in each other's presence. How long will they be able to resist the pull?

"Theo Kane is like marshmallow coated with steel. He's a big softy in a hard exterior. He's a certain kind of cut handsome that I think only I can see. Because the hard lines of his gorgeous face don't affect me like they do others. I don't tremble in my boots or shake with dread in his presence. Instead, I quiver with want and vibrate with need."

I devoured this story, unable to stop thinking about it long after I turned the last page. That's nothing new with this author though. I read her THIS MAN series years ago, followed by hundreds of other books, and I still remember it. Her characters leave their imprint, they are unforgettable.

But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters.
