Life can change in the blink of an eye. One moment, Lily Preston is trapped in a loveless marriage. In a split second she is free, but at what cost? Her mundane life is set into a free fall of tragedy and terror. Her husband maybe out of her life, but he left a storm of collateral damage behind and the burden is on Lily to sort it out. 

Fate connects Lily with Gavin Edwards, a charmingly handsome British gentleman that has been drawn into her tangled circumstance. Gavin is everything Lily’s husband wasn’t and gives her hope that love really does exist. Gavin wants nothing more than to sweep Lily up and carry her off into the sunset, far away from the devastation left behind by her husband. Gavin has been the first breath of fresh air in her life, but she isn’t looking to be saved. She needs to clean up her husband’s mess and find a way to save herself in the process. 

Does she throw caution to the wind and open her heart? Or listen to her head that tells her and go it alone until she’s found herself again?

Lily and Gavin meets after her husband dies and kills Gavin's wife in a car accident. The police take both of them into protective custody when it turns out that Lily's husband was involved with some really bad men. It also comes out that Gavin's wife, a well-known actress, died because she was involved with some very unsavory characters.

Gavin is English and wins Lily over with his steady attitude and sexy accent.  He keeps calm, even when the police are questioning them and telling them about all of the bad things their spouses were involved with. Because they are kept in close proximity, Lily and Gavin begin to rely on each other and learn to care about each other deeply. But the question remains, how could they possibly have a future together after everything they have been through.

This was an enjoyable book.  The romance aspect was very believable and the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. The chemistry between Lily and Gavin is real and their actions showed it. I don't know a lot about police procedures or the mob, but it felt very real to me.

4 out of 5 stars

City and Colour - We Found Each Other In The Dark

I heard the church bells from afar,
But we found each other in the dark.
And when the smoke does finally pass
We will rise above all the ash.
