Doors are made to be opened.
At thirty-four, single mom Larissa Malone still feels guilty over her teenage pregnancy. Raising her twins alone, she’s strived for an orderly and stable family life. As a result, men have been few and far between.
But Michael Healy knows exactly what Lari needs and how far she’ll go to get it. Easily persuaded, she agrees to a series of sexual encounters with this near stranger who lives life in the fast lane, and whose passion in and out of the bedroom keeps her coming back for more.
Everything seems perfect in this erotic liaison where fantasy becomes reality, until Larissa finds herself thrust into the middle of a grisly police investigation where her lover is the prime suspect and Lari is his only alibi.
As their lives become intertwined, she discovers that behind Michael’s discreet wealth and overt charm lies an obsessive perfectionist and a brilliant strategist, driven and relentless in getting whatever or whomever he wants. Suddenly she must face a man whose past is rife with heartache and pain, a string of affairs and an ex who is pure poison.
Now Larissa must move through the shadows of her past to face her future and decide if Michael is too dangerous a risk or the ultimate reward.
