What did I think?

This new series is like a police procedural if you added romance and shook it up. This might be your gateway into romance if you normally read Patterson or Grisham. It’s a page turner full of suspense for sure. I normally pride myself in figuring out the upcoming plot twists, and in this one I was never really sure what direction the story would go.

Allison got married to a mob boss without knowing about his real job. The last three years of her marriage were spent as his prisoner after she discovered his mob ties and confronted him. When she witnessed her father in law kill her husband she escaped and went to the FBI.

The twist of her former boyfriend being her Witness Protection Marshall opened the door for them to reunite and find out why they had broken up in the first place.
