After her career goes sour, Shyann finds herself jobless, penniless, and packing for her hometown–where unwanted memories await.
Lucas needs the quiet life. And that’s exactly what he’s found in Payson, Arizona. For the first time in his life, he finally feels like his mind is in check. Lucas has suffered from blackouts since he was a child. He knows he’s not like other guys.
But when Lucas meets his boss’s daughter, her probing eyes and personal questions pick away at his barriers. Shyann is everything he should never have…everything he wants. And soon the blackouts return. The last thing he wants is to expose how dangerous he can be–but he’s helpless, and it could cost him Shyann.
This book was such a surprise to me! So very different from anything I’ve read before. I’m going to share my thoughts without giving too much away…

Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted by Rose City Reader. A couple of Fridays a month, I will share the first sentence (or so) of the book I am currently reading, along with my initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
I am more than halfway through Loving Mr. Daniels, and have experienced more emotions from this book, than I have of any book so far this year….
Sophie Swenda, a refugee aid expert, is accustomed to saving lives on a grand scale. It becomes more than a job when the person she needs to save is the man she loves.
Michael Nariovsky-Trent, a Baltic-born American doctor, vanished months ago after joining the resistance in the Soviet Republic. Sophie believes he’s trapped inside the fences and barbed wire of a sinister refugee camp, lost in a sea of freezing, starving prisoners of war.
Despite her long-ago failed romance with Michael, Sophie’s always believed their time would come – no matter how unlikely it seems to everyone around them. His blazing temper, her obstinacy, and their shared brilliance and competitiveness have made the road to love a rocky one. More than a decade after they separated, they’re too stubborn to forgive past mistakes … and still too in love to move on.
She embarks on a mission like no other before. Unless Sophie can find him, their long-delayed chance at love will be lost forever. With the world’s security forces deadlocked and the camp’s commander seeking vengeance, Sophie is on her own. She must bargain for the life of the man she loves – and everyone else in the camp – before the commander destroys them all.
This author is truly talented in telling this amazing story about a woman who will go to any length to save the man she has loved most of her adult life. It also reminds you that there are really awful things happening to human beings in other parts of the world, that we thought would not be happening in this day and age. It definitely keeps things in perspective, when you are waiting in line for that “much needed” latte in Starbucks.
I’m a curious person. Always have been and hope I always will be. Big things, little things, things of importance, inconsequential things…you get the picture. As a blogger I’m curious about how people respond so differently to storylines, writing styles, characters, etc., and I’m hoping you’ll indulge my curiosity from time to time on different bookish topics…
Content Warning: This bookcontains graphic sexual situations, mature language and explicit description of physical and sexual violence.There is a fine line between genius and madness…
Between love and hate,
Between right and wrong.

Every story has two sides, and in this new book, the epic love story between Kiera and Kellan is shown through his eyes.
All Kellan Kyle needs is his guitar, and some clean sheets of paper. Growing up in a house that was far from a home, he learned a hard lesson:You’re worthless. Now his life is comfortably filled with passionate music, loyal band mates, and fast women…until he meets her.
Kiera makes him ache for more. Makes him feel for the first time that he’sworth more. But there’s one problem – she’s his best friend’s girl.
Just when Kellan thought his emotional defenses were rock solid, Kiera’s indecisive heart wreaks havoc on his soul, changing him forever. Losing Kiera is not an option.
