Second chances really do exist…

As the founder of a multimillion-dollar international security business, Carson Bad exposes secrets for a living. He knows better than to forge relationships built on them. But for years he did just that with his best friend, and secret lover, Tawny Bishop. She brought a sense of calm and understanding to his life–in and out of the bedroom. Until one fateful night when a knock at the door changed everything.

Tawny is no longer a naive college student. She’s a sought-after perfumer living in Paris. She has plenty of resources at her fingertips, and lots of lonely nights to think about the only man she’s ever loved–the one she ran away from all those years ago. She needs to move forward with her life, but how can she when Carson still owns her heart?

Maybe showing up in the middle of the night unannounced isn’t the best route to unraveling the past and figuring out her future, but Tawny has played it safe for ten long years, and it’s only made her long for the man she never should have walked away from. Now she’s back in Carson’s life, and he’s determined not to make the same mistake twice. If only he knew what that mistake was…

Tawny “Tabs” Bishop crossed the line between friend and lover.  Now she’s ready to face her past.  Carson Bad is one confident man.  Ms. Foster seems to know just what I need in order to relax and get lost in the stories she creates.  Her main characters may be serious about each other but they have a way of relieving my stress and even getting me to giggle. 

This is a story that opened a wound not yet scabbed over and left me a little raw.  But that’s just because our author created a character that knew what I was going through.  There was a scene that brought tears to my eyes because Tawny went through exactly what I did – she got me.  You know an author has done their job really well when you can empathize with the characters they create. 

Even with their issues, Tawny and Carson seem so at ease with each other – comfortable enough to say what they want.  It’s nice to find an author who can create something that lets me just enjoy.  Enjoy the setting, enjoy the characters, enjoy where the story is going and it leaves me looking forward to whatever ending she has created.  It’s a story where my life cannot penetrate and overtake my pleasure of reading a really good book.  The only real sadness came when I found that I have to wait until next year for the next book in the series.

It was his kiss, his touch, and the promise of so much more in his rich cocoa eyes that had taunted Tawny Bishop in the wee hours of the night for the past decade and had finally driven her from Paris to New York City on this cold November night. Memories of her once best friend’s demanding hands running over her heated flesh, enticing her into giving him anything he wanted, brought a rush of adrenaline, and her nerves flamed to life. A cacophony of wind and rain created a dark serenade to her seductive and nerve-racking thoughts as the cab weaved through traffic toward the Ultimate Hotel, where his family was hosting a fundraiser.

Carson Bad.

Even his name sounded stable and strong. She felt a smile tugging at her lips. You were bad, all right. His friendship and his deep, confident voice had once been the salve to all of her worries, righting everything that had felt wrong during her college years. God, she missed him. One sinful Sunday night his voice had done more than soothe. It had slithered beneath her skin, fueling her desires, and he’d introduced her to his darker, sensual side.
