ADA Kate Megason is a tough as nails and works hard at putting the bad guys in jail. She is handed a career making case when out of no where her past comes back to haunt her. Eleven years earlier Kate and her twin sister Kirsten were attacked and left for dead. There parents work to keep the attack secret even going so far as to change their names and relocating. Someone knows her secret and they are tormenting her but soon crank calls turn into something more. On top of that she has just been partnered with a loose cannon investigator who has a few demons of his own. Will they be able to work together or will the sparks that fly between them start something they won't know how to deal with?

Frank Matrone was injured while overseas. He barely managed to survive and he has the scars and pain to prove it. He has been assigned to work along side ADA Kate Megason. This could be a bad thing since she has little tolerance weakness and he has a boatload of issues that make him weak. But when he realizes the case Kate is working is more then it seems, and when trouble starts dogging Kate's feet, he can no longer pretend he is unmoved by the sassy and strong Kate. Will she be willing to trust him to tell the truth or will someone finish what was started eleven years earlier?

This was an exceptional read.

I don't like romance books but this one has a good storyline and the romance isn't the main topic, good suspense thriller.
