When another dangerous storm hits, Ryan stays by Maisie's side. She fills the missing piece in his heart, but will Ryan share his secret? Can Maisie move on from the past and learn to begin again?

Sensuality Level: Behind Closed Doors

~ Review ~
4 1/2 QUICK SWEET STARS! I was excited to read this book after reading the synopsis and I was not disappointed! I loved getting to know Maisie. She was such a lovable character. She's been through more than anyone should have to endure. Ryan was the perfect gentleman. I loved watching him try to put the light back in her eyes. This story was a quick very enjoyable read with a sweet romance and enough obstacles to keep you invested and turning the pages. This is definitely one to go one click!
