From the publisher:
Social worker Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children. But now it seems she needs protecting. When her tormentor's attentions take a violent turn, she calls in reinforcements--her police-detective brother, Cole, and his new partner, ex-Navy SEAL Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat and the danger intensifies, Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Because protecting Alison has become more than a job; his future depends on keeping her safe.

My Review:
Hang on to your hat, this book is very intense so much so that I had a hard time reading it in parts! That said I can't give it a full five stars not because it wasn't a thrilling, interesting read but it made me cringe so many times and I was genuinely creeped out! This is definitely NOT for the faint of heart. I read a lot of different books, including general market fiction which can get kind of grisly but I think this one takes the cake. For Christian fiction I'd definitely say it's more "edgy" because of the drug use and violence depicted. I think this book would definitely appeal to those who like crime dramas more than romance. Don't get me wrong there is definitely a strong romantic element (love that hunky Mitch!) but the suspense takes front seat here. Ms. Hannon definitely has a good thing going with this series and I hope Cole's story is told soon!
