*This story contains triggers that might be upsetting to readers.
This book started off slow for me and I wasn’t feeling connected to either of the characters. Then the book took a turn at around 46% and I was all over it.
I wanted to hug Presley and make all her problems vanish because no one deserves that kind of pain. I also really admire her for making an amazing life for herself on her own. She is really an amazing character, and I wasn’t to see more like her.
Shaw was such a sweetheart. I love his smirks and confidence and I really love that Presley knocked him off his pedestal once or twice. Their chemistry was really interesting and I was so into the banter. I will say, I would have liked if he grovelled a bit more.
The mystery part of the story was top notch. It was definitely steadily paced after the first half.
Devney Perry knows how to keep you glued. Her unique mix of romance and thriller is always my jam. And now that we know who the next book is about, I’m so excitedly looking forward to it.

Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.
Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.
At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.
The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.
But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.
