Sean Sullivan refuses to let his wife go without a fight. He made a mistake a year ago by suggesting they get a divorce. He only wanted to scare her into staying in town, so he gave her an ultimatum. No one was more surprised than him when she walked out the door and never looked back. Now that she’s on the same continent, he plans to convince her they’re meant to be together, and he’s not above using sex to get what he wants. When killers target them to die, he’ll use any means necessary to keep her safe. Even if he has to kidnap her and tie her to his bed to do it.

Review:  I picked this book to read because of it’s cover. I know I know, never judge a book by it’s cover, but the cover really grabbed my attention and pulled me in. So, even though this is a short read, it’s really packed with a punch. Caitlyn and Sean are married, she wants to divorce him, he doesn’t want his marriage to end. Sean is a cop who’s got some bad guy after him and possibly anyone else close to him, so Sean needs to protect his wife much to her chagrin. Sean likes being in control and Caitlyn feels as if he doesn’t listen to her which has caused some friction in their marriage. I liked this book. I really liked the idea of the story and the cover kind of hinted at some of the chemistry between the two characters and you shant be dissapointed!! What I had a problem with was because it was a short story, not all of the ideas that the author had could be developed fully. I would have liked to have witnessed the fight that led to their breakup. I wanted to see what their lives were like after she left. I liked the characters, they both were flawed and they loved each other in spite of them. I liked that they hurt each other and their marriage was messy but in the end they loved each other. A happy ending isn’t bad either!!!
