The bestselling Ethan Frost series introduces a tantalizing new hero—and the broken woman only he can save. Discover why Beth Kery once declared that readers of Tracy Wolff will “fall in love under the spell of a master.”
When Tori Reed loses everything, he sets her free.
I told myself I’d never trust Miles Girard, no matter how brilliant or sexy he may be. His sister, Chloe—Ethan Frost’s wife—is my best friend, but I know just how low Miles will stoop to get what he wants. Now he’s the last thing I want: my boss.
Growing up, I had it all—except for the sense that I belonged. And when a mistake from my past surfaces in the press, my parents don’t hesitate to cut me off.
But surprisingly, Miles offers me a helping hand.
Flawed, perhaps, but definitely a keeper. Absolutely entertaining, I enjoyed this story referred to me by Netgalley. This is/was a new to me, author, therefore I hadn’t read the previous stories in this series. I didn’t consider that problematic as the lead in provided a clear introduction to the main character.
Tori is from a high profile family and has just completed college. She doesn’t have a strong family support system and has been more than a bit of a ‘wild child’. Tori is a bit at loose ends trying to figure out where exactly she fit when a sex tape filmed without her knowledge or permission was published online by her ex-boyfriend. He was a minor movie star motivated by both his desire for the publicity and anger when Tori refused to hook up with him. Her father was irate was learned of the film and immediately cut her off financially and kicked her out of her apartment without shoes or belongings. Tori’s best friend Chloe came to the rescue and helped her get away from the paparazzi and stay at her apartment. She didn’t mention that her rather reclusive brother, Miles, was living there. Miles and Tori had a long-standing extremely contentious relationship but it didn’t take Miles long to realize that Tori needed him and he needed her. The author is liberal with the intimacy that quickly becomes more than physical.
I loved Tori’s description of the story behind her dandelion tattoo and provides a look into her psyche. “I’ve always admired the resilience, the determination, of dandelions. They’re weeds that don’t just grow but thrive where they’re not wanted. They put down roots and grow a beautiful yellow flower that’s impossible to ignore. And then, when they’re ready – and only when they’re ready – they more on, on their terms.”
Together Miles and Tori find a sort of synergy and manage the secrets and troubles to come.
