Three years after he walked away and broke her heart, Leo is back in Chloe’s life and that’s the last place she wants him. Not that she has any choice in the matter. She’s in big trouble. She needs somebody to watch her back, and he’s the “somebody”.
Three years ago, Chloe dumped a bombshell in Leo’s lap. I’m psychic, she told him. As if he was supposed to believe that. His world is black and white, and he doesn’t buy into that mumbo-jumbo. Walking away from her damn near killed him, but he couldn’t be with somebody he couldn’t trust.
His new job? Keep Chloe safe. That’s it. He’s not supposed to touch her. He’s not supposed to make love to her. He’s not supposed to want her…need her…love her. But he can’t stop thinking about her, can’t stop dreaming about her. Now that she’s back in his life, he can’t keep his hands off her either.
The suspense in this book was great. The author had you wondering who was behind the curtain the whole time. Chloe is psychic and isn’t afraid of her gifts. Leo was in charge of her safety. Neither of them wanted to be back together. And each of them fought to keep the lust and love they felt to themselves.
Leo and Chloe were made for each other. And Shiloh Walker did an excellent job of adding depth to her characters. In a world that normally sees in black and white Chloe sees in shades of gray. She has psychic abilities, and the way she harnesses them is great. She never invades, only shares what she sees to try to help those around her. Leo is every woman’s fantasy. A man that can show love and not be ashamed by it. And a man who is not afraid to grovel when he needs too... gotta love it. They are both lovely characters that have very steamy chemistry together.
I recommend this read. It's easy to follow and quick and fun. The characters grab at you and take hold. If you're looking for a couple of hours of pure fun, then this is the book for you.
