Stalked by her abusive ex-fiancé, Rae Zachery retaliates by singing karaoke and spilling all their dirty secrets to the entire bar. When her ex attempts to silence her brazen performance, sexy, leather-clad Parker comes to her rescue and soundly punches her ex in the face. As valiant as that may be, Rae finds Parkers violent assistance unsettling, yet she cant help but be drawn to him and his tragic past.
    Fighting her attraction for Parker is a battle Rae cant win, and soon their night of sharing secrets morphs into an undeniable bond. But fate wont so easily relinquish her grip on their happily-ever-after. Instead of blissfully skipping into obscurity, Rae and Parker are subjected to her ex-fiancé’s vicious proclivities. Who knew love could hurt so good?


I have to say, I LOVED the beginning of this book.  Who hasn't wanted to shout from the rooftops what a douche their ex is?  And this is why Rae does - through karaoke of course!  I would have been up at the front of the crowd cheering her on!!

Rae has finally gotten away from her abusive, stalker ex.  Now trying to get on her feet emotionally and financially, she finally confronts her ex, but things don't go as planned.   This huge act of defiance should have been the beginning of a new chapter in her life, but turns out things take a different turn.

Enter Parker. Hot. Sexy. Leather clad. Heart the size of Texas.  Just loved him from the moment he joins the story.
The attraction is instant with Rae and Parker, and sparks fly between the pair.  They are both emotionally scarred from things in their past and are very gun shy.                  I liked that they did not fall straight into love.  Straight into bed, yeah, but the deeper relationship longer.  Though I did feel there was something missing in the relationship ~~ maybe it is just that as the story was a little short for us to get right into the nitty gritty of them or what, I can't put my finger right on it.

It was great to be along on the ride as Parker finally breaks down the emotional walls and finally let's people in.

Do Rae and Parker get their HEA?  For that you are going to have to read for yourself.

There was a great mix of secondary characters, from Rae's best friends Hunter and Cherry, to Parker's pretty dysfunctional family.  Then there is the ex.  What a very warped image of love he has in his mind.

There were a few twists and turns along the way too!

This is the first book I have read by Laura Kreiter and I did enjoy it.  There was just that little something I was left wanting after reading.  It looks as though there is at least one more book in this series (though Love's Paradox is a stand alone read), so I will make sure i read that too.
