Synopsis: The danger and lies are more than she can handle.
Shea O’Bannon feels like a fifth wheel around her romantically paired-off friends, but there’s too much slime in the dating pool for her to bother with it. Then she sees her two-timing ex, Trevor Madero, serenading the mostly female crowd at a live-music bar. God knows trouble follows him around, but her desire for him rushes back in anyway. After he rescues her from a handsy drunk, temptation takes over.
Determined to prove he never stepped out on Shea, Trevor slides back into her life—and her heart—with forever in mind. Even with the wall he keeps up to protect her, his secret criminal life weighs heavy on his soul and drives a wedge between them.
When the truth comes out and his enemies target them both, they’ll have to fight for their love, or kiss it goodbye.

I enjoyed this addition to the Arresting Onyx series. Shae and Trevor have a great second-chance romance that’s filled with chemistry. Shae and Trevor have a history, and it’s clear there’s unfinished business, and a lot of desire, between the two. After talking about their misunderstanding and clearing up some of the issues between them, Trevor and Shea decide to give their relationship another chance, but secrets still stand between them. It’s interesting to see how they reconnect and work towards a better relationship.
I like that protagonists from the previous books in the series have secondary roles in this story. It’s always awesome to see how the couples are doing and what’s been going on in their lives and how their relationships have progressed. I also like the themes of friendship and family in the story. Shea has a wonderfully supportive group of friends that always have her back. And Shea learns some difficult and complicated truths about her family that change everything for her. Trevor has some good friends too, and I love his family. His aunt is comical, and you can tell he comes from a tight-knit group. It’s interesting to see how her and Trevor’s lives twine together in ways they never even knew about.
The story also has danger and suspense as Trevor’s secret ties to Onyx are exposed. It seems like Onyx’s influence is far-reaching, and Trevor and Shea are in as much danger as the characters in the first three books. The story gets intense, and there are a few twists that I definitely didn’t see coming. I’ll be interested to see how these revelations affect the characters and Onyx as the series continues.
