Description

USA Today bestselling author Beth Yarnall introduces two broken souls who discover that keeping their hands off each other is even harder than facing their demons.

RITA FINALIST—ROMANTIC SUSPENSE

Beau: Six years. That’s how long I spent behind bars for a crime I didn’t commit—the murder of the woman I loved. Now I’m free, but life on the outside is a different kind of prison. I don’t know who I am or who I want to be. At least I have my sister, Cora. She never stopped believing in me. She even got me a job at the private investigation agency that cleared my name. And then Vera Swain walks into Nash Security and Investigations and kicks my world on its ass.

Vera: There’s only one thing that would make me come out of hiding after two years on the run: finding my sister. I made the mistake of telling a monster about her, the same monster who beat me and broke me. Now I’m forced to confide in Beau Hollis of Nash Security and Investigations. He looks at me like he knows me—the real me. He sees too much, makes me feel too much. The pleasure he offers is exciting and addictive. But I can’t fall for him . . . because my love could get us both killed.

Customer Reviews

Overall, this was an interesting story with very complex characters and really kept my attention.

This is the second book in Beth Yarnall's Recovered Innocence series. The first book was Cora's story and her struggles to get her brother, Beau freed from jail for a crime he did not commit. This second book is now Beau's story.

Beau is trying to start to live his life again. He is at a crossroad and isn't sure what he should do. He still is mourning the loss of Cassandra, his girlfriend that he was convicted of killing. Cora is able to get Beau a job at Nash Security and Investigation. Beau is not sure if he is going to like it but it's a start. On his first day a new client comes in that Beau is suddenly drawn to. Her name is Vera Swain. Beau isn't sure what draws him to her but he feels like they have a connection. Vera is looking for her sister, Marie. They both were put into foster care but they became separated. Vera is fearful something is going to happen to Marie because she knows that she is with this guy, Javier, that is bad news.

Beau is really intrigued by Vera and wants to start helping on her case. He starts to find out many things about her that Vera didn't tell them. Beau convinces Vera that is he understands her and that they are very much alike. As the two of them work closely together trying to find Marie, their feelings for each other start to emerge.

These two lost souls found comfort in each other...a kindred spirit. The journeys that each of these two had were very difficult, yet being together helped each of them out.

The final arc of the story with Beau, Vera, Marie and Javier was explosive. I cannot even fathom to begin what they went through. The final happy ending was perfect for these two.

Overall, this was an interesting story with very complex characters and really kept my attention.

Chance to heal

After six years, with the help of Nash Investigations, Beau’s sister Cora was able to prove her brother did not rape and kill his girlfriend. After being released from prison, it is hard for him to adjust. He is angry, bitter and doesn’t know what to do with his life. Even though he did not kill his girlfriend, he feels guilty for not being there to protect her. While trying to get back on his feet and re-introduced to society, Cora allows him live with her and work in in the investigative agency. One day Vera comes in asking for help to find her sister. After explaining her situation, the only one that really believes her is Beau. Even though he knows she is not telling him everything, he privately helps her. As Vera and Beau spend more time together, they become closer and more intimate. Both characters are a little broken but together they help each other heal. There are added twists to the story, which pulls you more into the story. The story is a little darker than the first book, Vindicate. While it did start off a little slow, it did pick up. It is told in dual POVs and has a lot of inner monologue. Even though this is the second book in the series, they are separate stories. You do not need to read the first one, but I would recommend it.
