#1 USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and sizzling Slow Burn series with this fourth book—a mesmerizingly sexy tale of a strong, brilliant woman who encounters the one man who makes her lose all control.

Eliza Cummings fought free of a monster who terrorized her when she was an innocent teenager and helped put him away for good. She took a job with Devereaux Security Services and devoted every hour to taking down the very thing she’d nearly become. No one, not even those closest to her, know her darkest, shameful secrets. But now the killer has been set free on a legal loophole and it’s only a matter of time before he comes for her. Eliza’s only choice is to run and lead the monster away from the people she loves.

Wade Sterling has always lived by his own rules, a law unto himself who answers to no one. He’s never professed to be a good man, and he’s definitely not hero material. Wade never allows anyone close enough to see the man behind the impenetrable mask—but one woman threatens his carefully leashed control. He took a bullet for her and the result was more than a piece of metal entrenched in his skin. She was under his skin and nothing he did rid himself of the woman with the courage of a warrior and who thinks nothing of putting her life before others.

But when Wade sees a panicked and haunted Eliza he knows something is very wrong, because the fool woman has never been afraid of anything. And when she tries to run, the primal beast barely lurking beneath his deceptively polished façade erupts in a rage. She may not know it, but she belongs to him. This time, Eliza isn’t going to play the protector. She was damn well going to be the protected. And as long as Wade breathes, no one will ever hurt what is his.

This is an action packed thrill ride involving one sexy as sin man filled with some pretty pleasant surprises and a fiercely loyal woman who is hell bent on erasing a past mistake while making sure nobody she cares about is harmed in the process and I loved this! This is the fourth book in the Slow Burn series and can be read as a standalone since that’s how I read this one. Wade Sterling is not a part of the group DSS, or Devereaux Security Services, but he has helped them out with a few missions in the past and even took a bullet to save Eliza’s life recently. Eliza is a tough loner who doesn’t let anyone get close to her and nobody really knows more about her than what she wants them to see. Wade gets on her nerves immensely and every time they’re around each other their interactions were so intense it was driving me crazy! As this story progressed and things about Eliza’s past are revealed to Wade, he completely caught me off guard and I can honestly say that I was clueless when it comes to the type of man he really is in the best way possible. Eliza’s past has caught up with her and it’s nightmarish to say the least. I felt this impending sense of doom as to what was coming the entire time while reading this and was extremely thankful that Eliza didn’t have to deal with all of this on her own and had Wade to lean on for support through this difficult time. I loved this story and highly recommend reading it to anyone. I very much look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
