When Charlotte Murphy escapes from the ruthless serial rapist and killer, Loverboy, she finds herself completely lost and scared to death. Lost, frightened, recovering, and in the sights of a brutal killer. In a most odd but clever tactic from the police, they assign Charlie 24/7 live-in protection; a move that is supposed to comfort her and make  healing easier. Somehow, despite the odds, Charlie finds a refuge in officer Nick Andrews and in his arms she finds the strength to heal and the courage to move on with life. Nick finds everything that he wasn’t looking for in Charlie’s eyes and a fight against a killer that becomes personal.

Holy crap!! What an emotional, fast paced and healing book this was. Trista had me from the first page, she was able to grab your attention and keep it completely. This is a story of rising up and healing. Being able to stand on your own feet again and not let  the evils of this world hold you back from living life to its fullest and doing what you love most. Trista was able to navigate a very sensitive issue beautifully without over doing it. I loved the style of writing and being able to get into the heads of both Charlie and Nick. Even though it was really only these two characters in this book but you were never bored or wanting someone else to come in and break it up.

Charlie awakes in the hospital not remembering why or how she got there. When she fully wakes up he soon realizes that it may be gift that she can’t remember everything. Her body is covered in bruises and painful cuts. Not only that she has to face the fact that she brutally raped and had been held for days suffering unimaginable torture. But her fight for life and wanting to continue living helped her fight back and escape New York City’s serial killer “Loverboy.” The body count is rising before her eyes but she is the one that got away. The only problem is that Loverboy doesn’t want to let her go. The police know that her life is still in danger so they assigned Nick to be her protector.

Through the weeks of her healing Nick is there at all times. He helps her more than just by keeping her safe. He begins to heal her mind and soul. Nick is amazing!! I love him as a character and that he was there for Charlie even when he didn’t have to be as close as he was but that he truly wanted to help her heal. He knew from experience how this kind of attack could destroy a person and this leads him to be Charlie’s number one supporter.

As time went on Nick and Charlie start looking at each other differently and through the bad a good thing arises…they find each other and fall in love. Nick vows to keep her safe but with a serial killer on the loose targeting her it takes everything he has to keep his word of safety.

These characters blew my mind, I loved how their relationship grew and it wasn’t an insta love after what Charlie went through. It was beautiful to watch Nick pick her up every time she fell and not to see her as a victim but a survivor. Charlie is an amazing character; the strength she portrays through everything is mind blowing. All through this book I was drawn to both their loyalty and strength but also the fact that the author was able to keep you guessing at every turn as to who Loverboy is was amazing. Kudos Trista Jaszczak on a beautiful and thrilling book!!

She breaks down, sobbing in such a way I see her knees buckle for a moment. For the first time I feel the need to be truly protective, not just to keep her from harm but to comfort her. I hesitate for a moment, and then I wrap one arm around her. An ethical move but for some reason feels right and normal. Before I can stop her, she throws both arms around me and holds tightly. I pause and take one deep breath before wrapping the other arm around her. She pushes her face hard into my chest as she sobs. Unsure of what to do, I slowly bring a hand up to her hair and let my fingers run through it. She squeezes to me tighter and I find myself holding to her tighter as well, as though locked in my arms can take away the hurt and the pain that she is feeling right now. 
“I won’t let him hurt you again, Charlie,” I say, letting my chin rest on the top of her head, “I promise.”
