Release Date: October 18th, 2016


Four years ago I lost my virginity on live, streaming television.

Too bad I wasn’t awake for it.

The video went viral. Of course it would. A Senator’s daughter on camera? Wouldn’t you click “share”? Besides, that’s what three of the four guys in the video did.


They shared me.

But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing?

Not one single thing.

That was my boyfriend, Drew.

And that was the last time I saw him.

Until today, when my father—now on a path to the White House—hired him as head of security for my new team as I return home after four years of “recovering” in an undisclosed location that involved white lab coats, needles, pills and damage control.

You see, the other three guys never went to jail. Never had charges pressed.

Never faced consequences.

Until today.

Game on.

“I’m sorry,” he says. My ear is pressed against his broad, hard chest. I feel the words more than I hear them. The vibration and cadence make it clear he’s apologizing. Heat radiates off him like he’s the sun and I’m in his orbit.

I break away. I’m not his moon.

“You should be sorry,” I snap, marching toward my destination, fighting the soft ground. I don’t want to talk to him. I don’t want to do this. Not now. Definitely not right now. I haven’t seen him for four years. Four long, painful, horrible years. More than 1,400 days of waking every morning knowing I wasn’t with him. Knowing he sat there that night and did nothing while three men raped me. Degraded me. Used and abused me and enjoyed it.

My body goes into a full-blown supernova, skin on fire at the thought. My rage cannot be contained by a mere mortal body.

I turn around. He’s right there, following me.

“Go the fuck away, Drew. I told you. I hate your guts. Leave me alone.”

At least, I think that’s what I say. My mind can’t process words and thoughts right now. I am fixated on the red door at the back entrance of the house, the sprawling mansion that is the only home I’ve ever known, aside from Daddy’s townhome in Washington D.C. If I can make it to that red door without Drew touching me, if I can make it to my bedroom and to my medications where I can take enough to fall asleep, maybe I can get my brain to work again.

And stop the flood of emotions that are making me crazy.

About the Author:

Meli Raine writes romantic suspense with hot bikers, intense undercover DEA agents, bad boys turned good, and Special Ops heroes — and the women who love them.

Meli rode her first motorcycle when she was five years old, but she played in the ocean long before that. She lives in New England with her family.

My Review:
This is my first Meli Raine book and I am in love. I enjoyed every single second of this story. I love suspense stories and this one is simply incredible. It kept me on my toes through the whole book and with every answered question I had, there were another ten popping up. The only thing I was bumped about was the huge cliffie in the end. It simply left me craving more :)

I loved the main characters. They were very well developed and simply intriguing. Lindsay was simply fascinating. I loved finding out how her mind works and admired her strength and determination to take her life back after the nightmare she went through. But before she can get her revenge, she needs to find the whole truth. And nothing is what it seems.

Drew is simply delicious. With his military background and alpha tendencies, he will do everything he can to protect Lindsay this time. His guilt over what happened to her 4 years ago is unsurmountable but in the end he simply has to believe that she will give him another chance to proove that he is worthy of her trust again. Because the secrets and the shadows are waiting for both of them. And this time, they are aiming to destroy them completely.

So, if you are looking for a somewhat short story that will keep you on the end of your seat, look no further. This political thriller/romantic suspence is simply a must read. Just be aware that it is the first book in a series and it ends with a cliffhanger. So be prepared and don't throw your kindle at the wall ;) Simply wait patiently (or not so patiently :D ) for the next book to come out in a few weeks :D
