Abby Stone is desperate to get away. No, not for vacation, but to save her life. She is on the run from her ex-boyfriend. After his latest attack she takes off again. With a little help from a magical suitcase, she's hoping this is the last time she will need to run.
From the first time Dylan Reece lays on the gorgeous woman with pain in her eyes, he can't get her out of his head. When she shows up in his little island town, he knows he can't let her go again. The more he gets to know about her, the more he questions what she's hiding.
Abby has been through so much. When we first met her she was closed off and bitter. I loved watching her change throughout this story. Dylan brought out a whole different side of her. While she was strong and capable, there was a vulnerable side to her that was so endearing.
Dylan was a pretty perfect male lead. He was sweet, patient, sexy, protective, and so much more. In a sea of "bad boys", characters like Dylan really stand out.
Jolyse Barnett weaves both suspense and paranormal aspects into the story fluidly and effectively. The suspense is set up in a way that you are always waiting for something to happen. You know it's coming, you just can't be sure when. It had me racing through this book. The introduction of "Red", the mysterious and magical suitcase is such a neat addition. The story of Red is fun and intriguing. Barnett delivers this to us in a way that just had me going along with it, without questioning it too much.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and these characters. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Barnett in the future.


Author Jolyse Barnett writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense. As a little girl growing up in upstate New York on the shores of Lake Champlain, she enjoyed chasing fireflies, riding her ten-speed bike on winding country roads, and playing horseshoes at family picnics through endless summers. Winter was another kind of adventure for an active kid, with skiing in the Adirondack Mountains, trips to the local public library to feed a voracious reading habit, and ice skating with her siblings on a frozen pond near her childhood home. Much to the confusion of her peers, she discovered the thrill of storytelling at a young age, often forgetting to differentiate between fact and fantasy. Thankfully her fifth grade teacher encouraged her to memorize poems and create her own—unleashing her inner writer. After graduating from high school, she developed a more practical side. She earned a degree in Writing, fell in love with her best friend, and now lives her happily-ever-after in Long Island suburbia. Who knew the dream home would include a leaky kitchen faucet, piles of laundry, and a too-hairy cat? But with love, it's all good. She enjoys a fulfilling day job where she shares her love of language and explores the world one vacation at a time with her two children and real-life hero. Jolyse loves to connect with her readers.
