At Peace by Kristen Ashley

At Peace (The 'Burg, #2)At Peace by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Violet Winters had it all, a wonderful marriage and two beautiful daughters until a dangerous man ripped her world apart. Now a widow and the madman more determined to claim her, Violet has left Chicago to start a new life.

In one unusual moment, Joe Callahan finds his interest peaked but at the same time a hint of something he long ago banished, a chance at happiness with another woman. Meeting his furious neighbor in the dead of night was unexpected enough but to find the sudden urge to get her to bed is swift.

Without knowing her history, Joe treats Violet as he does every woman beds but when he feels the pull to take it further he balks. Violet had no intentions of getting involved with her neighbor from hell, but her body sings in his company and is willing to take a chance until he hurts her deeply. Joe can't stay away though and when he finally makes a decision about her and her girls, all hell breaks loose when the man who she ran from finds her.

I have to say that Kristen Ashley books should come with a warning. Ashley Addiction: Tissue a must, Clear calendar for the day (possibly week) once you start the book you will be worthless, and when the story ends you are ready to curl up and reread again. I have to say this maybe my favorite book overall. I was spellbound, sobbing, and seduced by this story.
