Three years ago Drew Thompson left to further his career by taking an assignment to photograph the war in Iraq. At that time he was not prepared for the strength of his feelings for Zoe, his best friend's sister and ran. He found it had been his worst mistake. Seeing her again, especially in such a dangerous sport as trick riding a dirt bike in the dunes, had his heart thrumming in his chest. He was ready to take control and tame her thrill seeking in a new way, even if it meant tying her to his bed.
Zoe Davis was certainly not expecting her brother Josh to phone her the news that Drew was back and would be at this weekend event. She was not prepared for memories of being in Drew's arms, after fighting for the last three years to erase those memories of him and the dreams of forever with a home and family. He had been her first and she had wanted him to be her last. When he walked away the loneliness had been devastating. Since he left she had become more and more dangerous in her riding career and seemed to have a death wish according to her boss.
This is a wonderfully passionate story. Not only had they both been trying to forget they were failing miserably. When Drew seeks a second chance Zoe has to face the reality that with out him she had nothing to live for, and that had made facing death easy. Would accepting him change her again? Would it return her to the carefree spirit of the past? Could she face the possibility that he would leave again? There is so much emotional turmoil that is touches
someplace deep with the reader and allows us to connect easily. An amazing erotic, passionate, loving as well as heart wrenching story.
