He has everything planned… except her.

Averill is exactly where she wants to be in life after years of running. She’s opened her own boutique and can finally breathe again. She thought she was safe… until her world collides with the dark shadows of Rhys’.
When he unknowingly puts her in the path of a serial killer, will he be able to protect her? Even if it means becoming the killer he’s trained to be?
Wow. Can I just say WOW! Yet another book that left me completely speechless from the beginning to the end. This book was what I like to call a real page turner and it immediately captured my full attention. The opening scene in the prologue really gets the readers thinking about the underlining premise of the story and leaves them wondering what will happen next — behind every turn. At least that was the case for me.
Rhys was the very first book that I’ve read from this extraordinary author and I can’t wait to see what other titles this author has to offer. The author has a strong understanding at character development and knows how to keep her readers on the edge of their seats until the very end! There wasn’t a dull moment in the entire novel and I would consider it to be a relatively quick read even though it technically took me a few days to read because of my hectic schedule. This storyline has so many factors that contribute to the characters background and essentially added so much more to the story!
Overall, if you are looking for a book that is filled full of mystery and suspense then this is the book for you because it has all of that and more!
