This story is definitely heavy on the suspense and thriller genre and light on the romance. Brooke/Kellie is on the run with her daughter from her abusive husband. She has been through so much and is constantly on the move, never able to relax or let her guard down. It was so upsetting at times to read her overwhelming sense of fear for her life and her daughters life. When Blake entered the picture, he offered her a glimpse of hope. He becomes such a positive fixture in both her and Ava's life and you could almost imagine Brooke allowing herself to be loved again. Book one of this duet ends on a cliffhanger that is pretty intense but doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth.

About This Book
Everything I’d been fighting for was right there in my arms. She was so tiny and innocent, and I was going to do whatever I had to to keep her safe. She was my purpose, and I knew right then that I’d do anything to protect her.
I turned toward Blake and launched myself into his arms. The strong muscles banded around me as he held me to his chest. I could feel his heart beating wildly as I stayed there in his arms. He smelled of a woodsy cologne, and made me feel safe for the first time in a man’s arms. The fact that he wanted to do this for my daughter made all the difference.
Each project he completed seemed to put a little piece of me back together. It was the first time in a long time that I’d witnessed a man build something for me instead of tearing it down. Blake was giving me that glimmer of hope that I so desperately wanted.
