Synopsis: Her beauty once opened doors, but the felony conviction now slams them shut.
Harper Cloud used to love the gilded glamour of Las Vegas, but on the far side of prison, she sees the cracks in the veneer. These days, she keeps her head down and focuses on the elderly patients in her care. Even her new wealthy east-coast boyfriend, Derrick, can’t entice her away. She’s trusted men before, and look where that got her.
She tries to brush off the feeling that she’s being watched. She won’t allow a baseless paranoia to derail her life. But when she’s followed home one night, her pursuer gets within a hair’s breadth of grabbing her. She knows it’s time to get away from Las Vegas.
Maybe Derrick can be trusted. Maybe his job offer—to care for his aging grandfather in Maryland—will be the second chance she needs.
But Derrick has secrets of his own, secrets that could take him down–and take Harper with him.
Can there be a second chance for someone like her?

Review: I felt that the book did really good with character development and the writing was well done. The book is also really well paced and it’s not a very stress-inducing suspense novel, so if you want to read something suspenseful but can’t bring yourself to do so with most novels this would probably be a good one for you.
However, I felt that the book didn’t really go anywhere. There wasn’t much of a story here and the climax is at the end of the book. It feels like the book is mostly just background and story setting up, it’s really off-putting for a first book.
Verdict: If you can deal with story setting this book would be good for you.
