Detective Mike Sterling walked away from his dream job telling himself it was to honor the promise he’d made his mother, while lying in a Chicago emergency room. A year later, he’s still fighting the demons that followed him back to his boyhood town.
Taryn Watts is an award-winning designer, going from project to project, living from a suitcase. Her plan for Renlend Kansas was the same as always. Go in, get the job done and get out, just the way she likes it. Growing up as a cop’s daughter, her every move was controlled. When she escaped to college she vowed to never fall in love with a cop –ever. Until she found herself sitting across from the ruggedly handsome stranger. Looking into Mike’s ice blue eyes they pulled her, called to her, but there was a haunting in them she knew too well.
Mike is drawn to Taryn, her passion for her work and her stunning beauty left him breathless, but what surprises him most is the peace he feels when he’s near her. Maybe it’s because Taryn is a temporary addition to his town and his secret is safe, or maybe it’s because she makes him feel safe. Mike knows he can’t keep up this charade and when Taryn moves to Renlend for an extended stay he can’t hide the truth any longer.
Can Taryn forget he’s a cop and give him her heart, or will his demons drive them apart?

About the Author
When asked ‘when do you have time to write’, Amy Gregory simply laughs. The real answer is, “in bits and pieces”. She and her husband live in Kansas City with their three fantastic kids that keep them running in three very different directions. Because she sits so much, she always carries a notebook with her at all times.
She has an off the wall, snarky, off the cuff sense of humor that often shocks even those who’ve known her for years. And she loves that her children have all been blessed that ability to make others laugh as well. At least she’s grateful most of the time! Her husband often teases her about how she “makes this stuff up” when he’s reading a piece of her work. … The answer—“it just comes to me when I’m typing”. Scary thought, huh!

This was one of the sweetest and breathtaking stories I’ve read. It was absolutely perfect. I love reading a story that draws me in and keeps me captivated by the characters and their connection. This was one of those books. It was beyond beautiful. It was amazing.
I absolutely adored Taryn. She is so spunky, care free, caring and loving all in one. She loves those around her to the fullest. I hurt so badly for her to learn some of her past and how she wasn’t that close to her family. I wanted nothing more than for her to find happiness and a family. She definitely had the two best friends EVER in her roommates. I loved that they were so close and looked out for one another and loved each other for who they were no matter what.
You will fall deeply in love with Detective Mike Sterling! I know I did. He is absolutely amazing. One of the greatest guys you will read about this year. He’s so well perfect. He’s strong, caring, has such a HUGE heart and not to mention he will take your breath away with how amazing he is. I loved every second that I was in his head. I just couldn’t get enough of him. My heart broke when I learned what he was hiding. I felt so bad for him and was beyond happy that Taryn helped him through it and showed him that what happened wasn’t his fault.
Taryn and Mike’s relationship was beautiful. I loved that they met and the connection was just there. It was like a switch went off for both of them and they just knew what they shared between them could be more. That it was going to be epic. I adore a story that is sweet and allows you to feel what the characters feel. This is definitely a wonderful love story you must add to your to read list.
