Vivienne Callahan has known only hardship. As if growing up with an alcoholic, drug addicted mother wasn’t traumatic enough, she’s escaped from her physically and verbally abusive boyfriend only to struggle every day to make ends meet as a waitress in a Minneapolis diner.

Along comes Mikah Blake, a handsome stranger who quickly takes an unexpected and persistent interest in her. On the surface, “Mr. Suit” seems to be Vivienne’s opposite: rich, well-fed, successful. As Vivienne will learn, Mikah is more than he seems, and for reasons unknown, he’s determined to be her knight in shining armor. But after having finally found her own two feet after years of abuse, it’s difficult for her to accept Mikah’s help.

Will her body’s unexpected response to Mikah’s touch be reason enough to overcome her pride and traumatic past and learn to love and trust? Or will her past, refusing to be left behind, come back to claim her?

paragraph divider 18***Stephenee, #NerdGirlSteph’s Review***

This book is a quick read that makes you just want to keep reading! The cliffhanger is the cliffhanger of all time….how does one expect you to wait soooo long for the next book?!?!? It is a great story with characters that make you want to take them in and help….looking forward to the next installment so that I can see what happens next! I hope that the cliffhanger doesn’t continue with the next book….but will keep on waiting and reading if it does!

The author did a great job with the character development and relationships and made the reader want to know more about them as the story progresses. I loved the author’s writing style as it was an effortless flow from one chapter to the next and the story kept readers on their toes wondering what was going to happen next. There were so many twists and turns throughout the story and there was no way to know where the author was going to go next. I loved this book and can’t wait to see what happens to Viv and Micah next on their journey….
