Publisher's Weekly Review

Malpas (The Forbidden) pairs off a ruthless club owner and a distraught nurse in this devastatingly effective contemporary. Izzy White is taking a shortcut home from her London hospital when she crosses paths with an injured young woman named Penny. Theo Kane arrives to help Penny, whom he calls the daughter of an old friend, and falls hard for Izzy. Though Izzy is still reeling from an agonizing experience with an abusive client turned stalker, she quickly falls into a tumultuous relationship with Theo. His own dark history makes him react badly to unexpected touch, but he holds back from explaining why. After a violent man from Izzy's past catches up with them, Theo and Izzy reach an impasse that could close the door on their love forever. Malpas's sexy love scenes scorch the page, and her sensitive, multilayered hero and heroine will easily capture readers' hearts. A taut plot and a first-rate lineup of supporting characters make this a keeper. Agent: Andrea Barzvi, Empire Literary. (Feb.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


Booklist Review

When Londoner Izzy White, on her way home from a nursing shift, sees a bloodied woman in an alley, she stops to help, putting herself in danger. Luckily, Theo Kane, brooding in an impeccable suit, shows up and whisks both Izzy and the victim to safety. After surviving a trauma, Izzy has worked hard to create a stable, boring life, but her attraction to Theo has her giving up all kinds of control. Malpas' latest erotic romance (after The Forbidden , 2017) is firmly in the mold of Fifty Shades of Grey, including a magnetic mutual attraction, a superalpha billionaire hero who lives to spoil the heroine as long as she lets him tie her up, and long-buried scars that are healed by love. Izzy is self-aware enough to know she is not acting in her best interests, and Theo is irresistible enough that the reader understands why. A subplot involving Izzy's roommate and Theo's bodyguard lightens the mood a bit and will leave readers hopeful that a sequel is on its way.--Susan Maguire Copyright 2018 Booklist
