DEA Jason Walker became a widower at Twenty-eight. Two years later he's still torturing himself with guilt. They'd married young, and she'd been his first love, but her illness changed everything. They'd fought a losing battle and he'd held her to the very end. Now he just wants to be left alone with his misery and memories.
Mercy James is no stranger to grief and loneliness. Her brother's death of a drug overdose, and her police officer father's death in the line of duty were the driving forces behind her pursuit of a career in the DEA. In spite of--or maybe because of--her past, Mercy doesn't believe in feeling sorry for others, or for herself.
When a case brings Jason and Mercy together, and their attraction heats up, can her tough, straightforwardness help Jason learn to live in the light again? He'd lost his first love, but is he ready for a forever love?
Riley writes heart-stopping romance with sexy alpha heroes and even stronger heroines. Riley's favorite genres to write are romantic suspense and military romance.

Jason is a nice character, many of his flaws make him only more human and real. He is a beautiful man on the inside and the outside. Mercy, a woman with a sweet personality but a strong side who knows that you have to live life to the fullest.
The book has a dual POV which makes it perfect to see both sides and understand what's really going on. The writing is really good and the descriptions are so good that is easy to picture the story as a real thing.
I enjoyed and was surprised that the book jumped so soon into the hot, sexy and passional scenes. I thought that I would have to read at least 30-40% of the story before getting some steam... I was so wrong, sex is a fundamental part of their relationship. They connect in such a magical and powerful way when they are together.
I did find some things at the end to be a bit predictable but it's still is a really good book. A lovely and passional romance that you can read in just a few days.
