A victim of sex trafficking, Carly Smith’s trust goes to few people. She’s been burned repeatedly by those who should have helped her, including law enforcement. Now that she’s finally free, and helping others coming out of the lifestyle, Carly is horrified to hear from one of the girls she counsels, that she was lured into sex trafficking by a man who fits the description of the same man who lured Carly in. Focused on finding this man, and stopping his evil, Carly travels home and catches the eye of Logan Donovan. Detective Logan Donovan. The man who took her to the party where she made her first contact with the “modeling scout”. Could he have been in on it all those years ago?

When Carly’s questions get her shot, Logan begins to suspect that she’s not who she says she is. Since Carly doesn’t trust any cops, that leaves her brother-in-law and Logan out of her loop. However, she feels that Maggie, the lawyer who represents the local women’s shelter, can be trusted – even if she is dating her brother-in-law. When her niece is snatched off the street near her home, Carly’s world gets even scarier than it was. How can she protect her identity, and get her niece away from the evil that nearly destroyed her?

Logan Donovan has never found a woman to compare to his first love, Heather Morgan. When she disappeared, she took a large part of his heart with her. Wouldn’t you know, the first woman to interest him since is one with way too many secrets? There’s something about Carly Smith that intrigues him, and when he catches a glimpse of her eyes, he’s sure he knows her from somewhere. He’s only known one woman with starburst eyes, and this one has them, too. Could this be Heather? As he investigates first her shooting, then the abduction of his friend David’s daughter, he becomes more convinced that Heather has returned. Can he handle her truth?

Can Carly find the men who stole eight years from her before they do the same to her 11-year-old niece? Will she find that she can trust more than just her best friend? Will following the clues get her killed?

Wow! Patricia Bradley knows how to ramp up the suspense until it screams, or her readers do! I can’t tell you how often I had to tell myself – “Calm down. It’s only a story.” The scariest part for me was, this whole story really could happen, and maybe does.

I definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense, because both were exceptional. This was five-star all the way!

Rated PG: This one deals with sex trafficking of some pretty young girls. There are several murder attempts, and abductions. It might actually edge into PG-13 range.
