When Melissa's ex-husband Sloan beats criminal charges, she stops believing he will ever pay for what he did to her. Derek Alexander can’t accept that--a tiny silver scar won't let him forget, and he is determined to get the man who hurt his fiancee.
Then a face from the past turns up dead.
After exhausting all legal options, Derek is ready to do whatever it takes to protect his family... until his partner Patrick devises a trap that changes everything.

Oh my beautiful Derek & Mel, how I have missed you and your delicious passion!!! Enjoying them now! Thank you Tia xo
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! The End! Nooooo, just kidding!
Ok, so those of you who have read my reviews of Tia's yummy OTH series know how crazy in love I am with Derek & Melissa!! They stayed with me for days after reading their story and I wanted more, more, more!! Thankfully, Tia being the goddess that she is must have heard my whining and gave me more!! See how I'm taking all the credit there?) Ok, so maybe it wasn't me that made her tell more of their story, but lets go with that :)
When we left Derek & Mel they were madly in love, having a baby, but couldn't decide who would give up their home town to move in with the other. So we find them still commuting - a really freakin' long way, mind you - to be together!! When Mel gets a text from Nikki that something has got Derek super stressed, she makes an unexpected visit to help, well, relax him...if you get my drift! :)
Little does she know at the time that Derek's stress is all due to the fact that her abusive bastard of an ex-husband is walking free and Derek DOES NOT LIKE THAT!! Can you blame him??? No worries though, Derek has got this!! I absolutely love the moral of this story, which I believe is to show just how far we will go to protect the ones we love and keep them safe.
All I can say is why would anyone think it wise to fuck with Derek Alexander, my delicious hunk of yummy Marine man meat!??! Big Mistake!!
If you love this series this is a must read, I am hoping we get little snippets of Derek & Mel for a long time to come, yeah, that's my inner voyeur talkin' - can't help it, she's a greedy bitch and I think I mentioned my slightly obsessive love for these characters!!
Oh, and if you have not read any of the books in this super sexy series, get on it! I really have no idea what you could be waiting for!!!
