**Warning** This book is intended for a mature reading**
I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man.
But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.
All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self-right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have.
So I did the only thing I know how to do.
But he just won’t let me go.
The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.
To make her mine.
She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.
She’s it for me and she knows it.
She’s just too scared to admit it.
**NO cliffhanger, HEA, inter-connected standalones**

Corps Series are getting better and better! We can definitely see developments in the writer’s voice confidence in this book. Sloan has delved deeper in character’s emotion and conflict; it’s the best she has wrote so far.
In this book, Sloan creatively used flashbacks and manipulating narrative devices to illuminate Beck and Dee's relationship.It explores back from the first book, Axel, yet from Beck & Dee's perspective. And what a different experience it was.
It's scary how sometimes I felt like I was reading a confessional book (in the likes of Anne Sexton with less disturbing graphic metaphors) than I was reading a romance novel. Readers would get a feel to channel the way how the tone of this book is darker and dealing with ‘more serious’ topics (yes, the predecessors dealt with issues, but I believe this was like a real skeleton inside the closet). The ever-so-fabulous Sway and 'sweet loving' will be present of course, though they'll take the back seat presence.
Expect a lot of drama, tears, birth, and the unfortunate deaths (yes, I cried). So, readers please bring some tissue with you whilst reading this, and as for Harper Sloan - kudos chica! I'm looking forward for the next instalment of the series *grins*. Thank you Twinsie Talk for the opportunity!
About The Author
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her e-reader attached. As an ex-reviewer and blogger, Harper's passion for reading runs deep. It wasn't until 'Axel' decided to take up residence that she realized her true calling.
She started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
