The beginning of the story is confronting but this is a story of redemption. In places the writing is so beautiful that it stops your breath.

Daisy Doolittle

Collins’ romance moves at a brisk pace and is full of erotically charged action. One of the strongest elements is the setting, as Collins successfully evokes the feel of a small New Mexico town. Dale and Sharon have high-pressure, fast-paced jobs and the narrative complements the rhythm of their daily lives.
