This story opens with action and it never stops. I was hooked on page one. Arden and Lawson seem to have a typical hateful ex relationship on the surface but once they’re forced to spend more time together, the truth slowly comes out and their story is heartbreaking. Their life together was full of love then suddenly fell apart without warning. Teaming up on this case isn’t an enticing prospect for either of them, but neither is willing to walk away so they have to deal with one another.
The characters are realistic and relatable with an emotional backstory so the second chance aspect is gripping but the suspense plot will have you on edge. I couldn’t put this book down.
I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

She’s a journalist who always gets her story.
He’s an FBI agent who’ll die to keep her safe.
Their divorce is final, but a killer will ensure their future ends in flames.
When investigative journalist Arden Olsen discovers her mentor’s smoldering remains, she’s determined to expose the killer. But the FBI’s lead case agent will do whatever it takes to keep her from getting involved.
FBI Special Agent Lawson Mitchell has been burned before—by the media and by Arden. He knows she’s not going to let the story go, so as the killer escalates, keeping his ex-wife close is the only way to keep her safe.
As one of the most vengeful serial killers he’s ever hunted closes in, Lawson realizes he can’t change the past, but he can damned well show Arden they still have a future.
