After decades of stealing, Milo Baxter is finally free and making an honest living. But no amount of hard work can break the chains that bind him to Serena Metcalf. Years have passed, but when she shows up in his bar, he knows he’s never stopped loving her—even though he forced her out of his life twice.
Having been raised as a criminal, Serena never dreamed she’d climb to the top of San Diego’s number-one real estate agency. Then a car accident results in a life-or-death chase through the city, and she flees to Milo’s bar for safety. Their past blows up in her face, but before she can leave, she gets a devastating call: her sister’s been kidnapped.
Milo’s the only one who can help her with one last heist—lifting diamonds from her new potential client for her sister’s ransom. The clock is ticking, and Serena isn’t the only one with something to lose. Both she and Milo could lose their hearts, but first, they must fight to not lose their lives.
|I am back and forth with this review. First, you have Milo who has given up the life of crime, that is until Serena walks into his bar. You then are taken back through their time together as thieves and when he was working for the other side and while she and her sister were trying to do a robbery he was there. You then have Serena now working as a real a state agent and after an accident, her whole life is turned upside down.
Her sister has been kidnaped and she is now given a job to do if not done her sister will be killed. This is how she goes to the bar where Milo is at. Though neither thought they would have seen the other one again Milo knows something is up as soon as she walks in., she actually thought that they would have a life together, yet here they are years later. First, they must get past the past in order to deal with the future in saving her sister. Once you get into the meat of the story the action begins to pick up and it becomes a faster read than the beginning of the book. Overall a good book.
