Ashton Garrison walked away from a privileged life in order to hide from the one thing she's not willing to face. She knows she left behind a trail of pain, but in the long run, her betrayal will hurt less than the truth. She now has one goal: Live life to the fullest with no regrets and no attachments. She has high hopes that a move to new surroundings will provide the escape she desires, but what Ashton doesn't count on is how fate always seems to find a way to screw up any good plan. Sometimes, when love comes knocking, the pull is too strong not to answer. Suddenly, what she thought she wanted to escape from is what Ashton now wants more than anything.
Nathan Lockton has one mission: find his target and complete the task he was hired to do—no attachments and no emotion necessary. He's done it over and over again. What he thought was a typical lost-and-found job has turned into a life examining moment as Nathan is forced to deal with something he has always ignored--his feelings. Now faced with a decision, Nathan must choose to either follow his heart or complete the job.

What did I like about this book
There is something about the way this book was written that spoke to me. I just love it. The story and writing was so captivating, I just couldn't put this book down.
The characters were great, the main as well as the side characters. And the time Asthton and Nathan sent together where a combination of sweet and just hot.
Can't wait to read more of the other characters in this book. I'm glad I bought the other books at apollycon and got them all signed. Glad I got to meet the author, she was such an amazing person to talk to.
