Once you're in a prison gang, you're in it for life.
That's what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother--his parole officer--catches them together and doesn't approve.
Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.
When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason's return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?
Between The Pages
A steamy romance with plenty of action. This story is book one in the Arresting Onyx series and stars rough-around-the-edges hero, Mason who is trying his best to lead a clean life after a stint in prison from a robbery gone bad. The opening pages of the story grab the attention when Mia hits Mason with her car. Their chemistry is instant and many steamy scenes soon follow. After a good opening scene, I found the story slowed its pace with Mason and Mia trying to make their relationship work while avoiding members of organized crime. But the action soon returned with plenty of drama. The kidnapping scene is edge-of-your-seat with action and suspense and includes an interesting ending. An enjoyable weekend read.
