The nationally bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths series and Burying Water --which Kirkus Reviews called "a sexy, romantic, gangster-tinged page-turner"--returns with a new novel packed with romance, plot twists, and psychological suspense.

Ivy Lee, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have finally found it working in her uncle's tattoo shop in San Francisco. But all that changes when a robbery turns deadly, compelling her to pack up her things yet again.

When they need the best, they call him. That's why Sebastian Riker is back in California, cleaning up the mess made after a tattoo shop owner who resorted to blackmail and got himself shot. But it's impossible to get the answers he needs from a dead body, leaving him to look elsewhere. Namely, to the twenty-something-year-old niece who believes this was a random attack. Who needs to keep believing that until Sebastian finds what he's searching for.

Ivy has one foot out of San Francisco when a chance encounter with a stranger stalls her departure. She's always been drawn to intense men, so it's no wonder that she now finds a reason to stay after all, quickly intoxicated by his dark smile, his intimidating strength, and his quiet control.

That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter was no accident--and that their attraction could be her undoing.

This is the 4th book in the series. LOVED IT! I loved how sassy and edgy Ivy's character is, and how sexy/smouldering Sebastian is. The story line was never stagnant in that new plots, twists and forming relationships were ever changing. Highly recommend!

I love of all of K. A. Tucker's books and this one didn't dissappoint

Written in the style where the chapter titles, the main characters' names, indicate point of view.

Characters have depth, complexity. Plot has more layers than the typical bodice ripper.

The moral issues touched on regarding mercenaries adds another layer to this novel. I am definitely checking out K.A. Tucker's other books.

Ivy describing Sebastian: "I'm not afraid of Sebastian. The first day he strolled into the shop, I was. But since then he's been this calm, quiet reliable safety net for me. He operates with discipline and control, and, my gut says, by a moral code."
