Decklan Dare knows about the unexpected loss of loved ones and for this reason, he values control in all areas of his life. Amanda Collins enjoys the freedom she finds in casual encounters without the emotional connection a relationship brings. They meet and their physical attraction is mutual but both experience feelings that could run deeper – if they drop their guard and let each other in. Decklan is first to trust, but when he discovers the secret Amanda’s been hiding, will he forgive? Or will he rebuild every wall before she has a chance to explain?

Amanda caught Decklan’s attention the first moment he laid eyes on her, but it was only during the time that Amanda needed saving where he finally took his move, and claimed her. No strings, no emotions, just great sex – that was their deal. But then Decklan realized that one night wasn’t enough. Only to wake up the following morning with an empty bed.
All their issues sprung from the fast, a tragedy made Decklan love to take control, and her mother had made Amanda cherish her freedom. They both wanted different things, but neither of them can deny the attraction that they feel for each other. One night, turned into more nights together. Decklan had given his trust to her, a rare thing to do for him. But when Amanda’s secret was out in the public, will he be able to forgive her? Or will he let her go?
I like the comfort that Amanda and Brad’s friendship. It has been mutually beneficial to them both, that is until Amanda met Decklan in one of her trips. The moment they were finally together, it was pretty much hot and explosive. But Amanda has been keeping something from him, and I wished she didn’t. Decklan on the other hand, had everything on his hands for him to get a background check on Amanda, but he didn’t. Perhaps, if Amanda had been honest in the beginning, it would have saved them the heartache.
I feel a little sorry for Brad, for everything that he had been through. He did everything to protect his family from humiliation and heartache, only to realize that his actions were worthless. He could have been happier if he was honest with himself, and do whatever made him happy.
I love every pages of this book. It was a short, hot, romantic read that will instill the value of trust and honesty in relationships among its readers. Finished this book in one sitting, and I must admit, I look forward for more of these Dare men.
