Seven years ago, Leigh McBride fell victim to a predator which resulted in the birth of her son. Now though, the father has been released from prison and is set on making her life a misery. Not only does she have one monster she has to contend with but it seems there’s a second one on the loose when she’s tasked to help the FBI stop a serial sniper.

Special Agent JT Noble hasn’t had the best run of luck with women, especially when he didn’t have the most stable upbringing with his mother being an alcoholic. However, when he’s forced to work alongside Leigh, he finds himself experiencing feelings that he’s never felt before.

The plot of this book was very interesting because not only was it told by the points of view of the hero and heroine but also a couple of secondary characters as well such as the killer and the man that assaulted Leigh seven years ago. I definitely enjoyed the opening chapter with the killer firing at his target because he wasn’t shooting just anyone. He believed the men he was targeting deserved it because they were men that preyed on children. The dialogue was good, although I didn’t particularly enjoy how each section revealed what day and time it was. I found that got a little confusing. The sex scenes were great because it helped Leigh to finally trust a man again. What I liked so much about both characters was their ability to face their pasts so that they could have any chance at a future together.

Overall, this was a good story with two strong characters that no doubt deserved a happy ending, considering their pasts.
