My Thoughts and Review 

I first want to say I LOVED THIS BOOK. Right from the start you feel a part of the story line and can see the characters Michael (Miguel) the handsome yet secretive and determined FBI agent on the run, Blair the beautiful yet insecure woman who fell in love but was afraid to take the leap. From the start they are thrown back into each others lives after years of fighting what their hearts were telling them. And from the go they are in constant turmoil with each other, and constant danger from those who wish to end Michael's life.

Blair is set to dive in and show Michael she wants him, Michael battles it the whole way. He's fighting for his life, and fighting against what his heart is telling him (more than Blair is). He is running from his best friend and Blair's brother. Afraid he is part of the ones who want to kill him. Blair is willing to risk everything to help him and prove he is innocent and prove her brother is too.

This is a fast past, constantly moving, ducking and running book. The sexual tension is always underlying and yet right there on the top. Amazingly written, easy to become a part of, see and feel the characters and the settings. Great book.
