Mia Ryan has learned the hard way that her choices can have horrible consequences. Taking an offer that was supposed to get her life back on track was nothing but a ploy. To keep the ones she holds dear safe, she's forced to finish what she started, without any hope of finding out why she was targeted in the first place. Though Mia has Ethan by her side, she can't seem to believe in him, especially since most of his life remains a mystery.
Ethan Fitzgerald has done everything in his power to prove to Mia that she can trust him, but it never seems to be enough to convince her to drop the last wall around her heart. With deep and dark secrets lurking around every corner, he has his own plan to keep Mia from any danger, but it may just shatter their love forever. There are so many questions – with even more shocking answers – and when Mia uncovers the truth, nothing will ever be the same...
“Mia, I love you. Please have faith in me. Believe I’ll tell you what you need to know and protect you from everything else,” Ethan pleaded. His mystical brown eyes begged me to trust him, with all my heart.
Ethan had done nothing but reassure me on a daily basis that he’d love me forever and keep me safe. This new revelation had me drowning in fear. Despite all that, I was desperately in love with him. I grabbed his chin and looked him square in the eyes so he didn’t miss my point.
“I believe you. You’ve called me out on more than one occasion for not giving you that trust, but I am. I’m giving you every ounce of me. And just so you know … I love you too,” I said, giving him a soft kiss.
Ethan gently brought me into him before running tender kisses along my jaw. I moaned when he got to my ear and began torturing the spot beneath it.
“I want you so badly, but we can’t do that for a few days,” Ethan said breathlessly. I jerked away from him faster than I should have, because my head paid the price. I winced and ran my hands along my temples. “And that’s precisely why,” Ethan observed, scowling.
“I don’t remember the doctor saying anything about our sex life having to take a break. He said no exercising that can overexert the body,” I protested, pouting.
“Babe, with us, sex is never anything less than a workout,” Ethan teased, pulling me out of bed. I grudgingly followed him. It was time we joined the others anyway.
