Delilah Palmer has control of her life and outward personality, blocking the truth just below the surface. A façade meant to be normal and hide the scars of her childhood. She’s made a good life for herself, became a lawyer, and is free from the tortured past that haunts her daily. Until he comes along and breaks open the cracks.
Nathan Thorne has a past of his own. On the surface he is loved by all, personable, extroverted; everything Delilah isn’t. Hidden beneath is a dark and tormented man that only Delilah has to power to unveil.
Crammed in a small office together they see through each other’s masks, and the draw becomes too much, igniting an explosive relationship. Holloway and Holloway Law has a strict non-fraternization policy, forcing them to conceal their breach. Despite their efforts, separation becomes impossible, deceptions escalate, and Nathan has trouble coping; teetering on the edge of being overtaken by his past demons.
What secrets does he harbor that could keep him from giving in? What keeps him from healing and moving forward? And Delilah, where does she fit into all this turmoil?
Can they accept love and deal with all the trials that come their way when secrets are exposed? Or will they fall through the cracks of their pasts and be consumed by all that haunts them?
Wow wow wow!!! This was my first book by Mrs. Lynn and intense doesn't even begin to hit the surface of what this read was. This book screamed sexual dominance from the prologue. I can honestly say this book makes my list of what to read after fifty shades. Again Wow Mrs. Lynn. She gave the reader pages of hot, sexy, steamy, and down right dirty SEX that two people used to mask there current states of being broken. On a serious note some scenes in this book could be considered mild porn.....lots of fanning myself moments, lol.
This is Lilah and Nathan's story. Lilah is an attorney. She also is a empty shell. Lilah's demons over the years have taken her self confidence/feelings of self worth and turned them to almost zero. I say almost zero because after years of therapy she is trying to battle back but she still has her good/ bad days. Well there is an opening in her department and the new hire is Mr. Hot, sexy, and we later find out equally as messed up in the head as she is.
After so many days/night of sharing office space and slowly getting to know one another the inevitable happens.
"Not God, Baby. Nathan. That's the name you'll be screaming when you come."-Nathan
The sexual chemistry between this two was so intense throughout this book. Although it gave me many fanning my self moments, it also gave me plenty of heart breaking ones also. Heartbreaking in the sense that they use sex as a outlet to rid themselves of the darkness they had. But of course along with constant sexual encounters comes feelings. Unfortunately Lilah's ability to express hers was one sided.
Lilah's faith in Nathan was never shifted. She knew his darkness ran as deep as the scars in his body,but she hung tight to the thought that one day his feelings for her would surface. she hoped he would open up 100% in time. Well her friends weren't so trusting (Andrew and Caroline) and GOOGLE was their information window.
As this story continue to play out we see something shift in Nathan and not for the good. He is more withdrawn, moody etc... At this point I'm thinking crap this isn't good. The night lilah confronts Nathan, is a the night all her fears come back 100 fold (heartbreaking). The man she placed her hope/faith in, the one man who had the power to break her DID! She was broken to the point of a nervous breakdown and had to be hospitalized. The last few chapters of this book my heart broke for lilah even more. She took chance on love and it literally physically broke her. The drama/action of events Mrs. Lynn packed in the last few chapter left me with so many questions and needing MORE of this story. Why does it take tragedy to strike for people to WAKE up and see what's right in front of their face?
"Warm tears landed on my cheeks as he continued mumbling. I stared at him in a stunned silence. This was not the Nathan I knew. Them ask was gone, and fort heftiest times was seeing the true Nathan without any inhibitions. He was raw and lay bare before me. I didn't move, I didn't speak , I just laid there stunned. He was crying. Nathan was crying. "- lilah
I loved this book. It was emotional, sexy and raw! Great job Mrs. Lynn. I can't wait to read more.
Book Rating: A/4.5 stars
1. Where were you born and where do you call home?
I was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and I still call that home. I don't lay my head there anymore, because when I met my husband he was living outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. So, that is where we are, but Indy will always be home.
2. Tell us about something that has just/recently happened in your life that you would like to share?
I've joined a publishing group called Mayhem Erotica and have a short story and a novella slated to publish this year as well. Otherwise life has been pretty boring because I've been recovering from knee surgery. :/
3. If you had to sum up breach in 30 or less words, what would you say?
A hard hitting story that is dark, sexy, intense, captivating and filled with raw passion, very dark pasts, secrets and healing. So much more going on then meets the eye.
4. If you gave delihah and nathan opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say?
Nathan - "They'd tell you to shut your trap."
Delilah - "She's just asking a simple question."
Nathan - "I don't like questions."
Delilah - "You've made that obvious."
Nathan - "What's that supposed to mean?"
Delilah - "It means anything that probes into you, the real you, you shut down."
Nathan - "Oh, like you're any better?"
Delilah - "Can we move to a different topic?"
5. If your book was made into a TV series or Movie, what actors would you like to see playing your characters? Please send me pics lol!!!
David Gandy for Nathan. He looks just like the picture in my head, I just didn’t know there was a real person that looked that way. If not him than Michael Fassbender. I really like Mia Wasikowska for Delilah, but I can also see Emily Blunt or Lauren Cohan.
