Violet Winters once had it all but lost it when her husband was murdered by a criminal madman. During a cold winter night Violet has to leave her warm bed to tell her neighbor to turn the music down. And that’s when she meets sinister, scarred, scarily attractive security specialist, Joe Callahan.
She wants to deny it, but Violet can’t beat back the hunger she feels for Joe so she gives in again and again. Feeling it himself, Joe feeds Vi’s hunger, breaking his own rules to keep her in his bed.
Even though Violet had only one man in her life, she’s sure Joe is giving her the signals and Vi decides she’s ready to take a second chance at life and, maybe, love. But Violet doesn’t know the dark secrets in Joe’s past, secrets so soul-wrenching, they’ve drained him dry. With nothing left to give, Joe’s determined to live his life alone and he breaks Violet’s heart.
Crushed by Joe’s betrayal, Violet comes to terms with the fact that, no matter what signals he gave, Joe was not theirs to win. But Violet’s husband’s murderer is obsessed with her and heartbreak again haunts the door of the Winters home. When it does Joe is forced to face the knowledge that he can’t fight Violet’s pull, she’s under his skin and filled him full to bursting.
Joe needs to win her back and put his life on the line to keep Violet safe. But, having had it all once, can Violet endure losing Joe?
At Peace sensational book
I love good sex in a book early this book has that it is a great story one of the good ones by this author. I would read this one twice to make sure I did not miss anything.
We've had the debate
If a man like Joe Callahan wanted to call me "Buddy" as a term of endearment, I would gladly drop to my knees in -- um -- gratitude! Kristen Ashley's heard it from me a million times, but Joe is one of my all time favorites. We all talk about the men in her books because they are so insanely hot, but guaranteed we would not love her books so much if she didn't write every other character equally well. Who wants the most amazing guy to end up living a so-so life with some regular broad? We would not stand for it! I am not exaggerating when I say that I got by on about two hours of sleep and had to suffer through work because of this book but it was worth it to finish it!
I absolutely loved "At Peace" I couldn't put the book down! Please make it into a movie :-)
