Back in her hometown for the first time in ten years, Sara Deckker is struggling to come to terms with the fact that her father needs her help -- a man that never once helped her when her uncle used to slip into her room at night when she was a child. No matter how conflicted she is though, as an FBI agent, it's her duty to help people in trouble and her dad needs her because he's on the run from the mob.

It's hard being an FBI agent when your father was a convicted criminal. But now Doug Fairbanks finds himself as lead agent in a case where he has to protect a man related to the one woman that never took a chance on exploring a relationship with him when their chemistry was off the charts.

The plot was fantastic and I liked how Doug and Sara were reunited with her transferring to his unit for a short time. What a surprise it was for both of them to discover they'd be working together again. The dialogue was powerful and highlighted the different relationships between the characters. There was plenty of hostility from Sara but with her personal history she had the right to be bitter. At least towards her father as for Doug that was another story. He was only trying to get her to open up. What I liked so much about Doug was how perceptive he was. It was obvious something happened between Sara and her father to make her so defensive at times. While with Sara, I liked that she was willing to give Doug a chance even as she struggled to allow anyone to get close.

In conclusion, this was a good book which I just had to read after having read the first one in the series. I would definitely recommend this book but be sure to read the first one in this series before reading this one.
