Stella lost everyone and everything important to her. After all the lies and hiding, she's ready for a fresh start somewhere where her brother’s enemies won’t find her. One last night out turned into her worse nightmare. The morning she should be moving away from all the painful memories, she finds herself a captive by exactly who she was running from. Atlas is determined to finish what they started. Stella is unknowingly the key to solving the unanswered questions her brother left behind. Taking advantage of their sexual chemistry at the club, he forced her to his lake house. He promised her protection but Stella made a promise of her own: Trust no one, especially the man responsible for ruining her life. What happens when Stella’s life depends on trusting Atlas? What happens when keeping Stella is risking everything he worked for? What if neither one is willing to let go?

Let me start out by saying that the book itself isn't bad, it has a great story line and it was a fairly quick read. I'm a dark book reader, I had very high hopes that this book would be dark and dirty.
Dirty was on point. Stella is the golden child of the world. She has everyone eating out of the palm of her hand. When you're engaged to the DA, you have to have a squeaky clean life. Not everything is what it seems.
Atlas, he's hot. He's raw and he gives no fucks, until he buys a girl a drink at the bar and "takes her home." When Stella wakes up thinking she has one hell of a hangover things quickly take a turn for the worst. Will she be able to make Atlas believe that she didn't have anything to do with the night that changed her life?
Dark. Hm. Not so much. This book had situations that could have turned dark and maybe for a newbie to dark reads they would have been. This would be a good dark starter book for anyone that wants to get into the genre.
