This novel is a work of fiction and contains strong sexual situations and violence that may be disturbing to some readers.

Enter Detective Gabriel Torres. 
Gabe is talk, dark and handsome and immediately feels a connection with Sydney. Sydney's been called in to assist in the investigation of raped and murdered young women and he’s not sure she’s the right person for the job. 
But Sydney’s connection to this case is more than anyone could ever imagine. Can Gabe save her from her past? Or will her nightmare be the death of her?

I am married and have a teenage son. I live in the Atlanta, GA area and I enjoy reading and writing. I went to bed one night after reading a book that wasn't very good and thought to myself, " I can do better than that." So the next morning I got up and started pounding away at the keyboard. My first book hides in the bowels of my laptop collecting dust. My first published novel, Running from Destiny, released in October of 2013. The sequel, Accepting Destiny just released in January 2014. My newest release is Reprisal - A Dark, Erotic Thriller.  All books are Mature adult and recommended for ages 18 and up only.

Other Books by Christa Lynn

This is my first book by Christa Lynn and it took me by surprise. I loved it! Call me twisted, but I am a fan of darker books, and this was a home run for me. I will mention that that this book has some scenes that are not for the faint of heart, and at times were difficult to read. 

Dr. Sydney DeCarlo suffered a traumatic past and has fought through her demons to become a strong and independent woman. Her troubled past prevents her from getting involved in relationships, and when men get to close to her she pushes them away. She works as a forensic psychologist counseling children that have suffered abuse. Her expertise in the field, from both personal experience and schooling, is how she ended up working with the NYPD and FBI to help solve cases. And that's how she meets Detective Gabriel Torres.

Dt. Gabriel Torres lives and breathes his job. NYPD detective by day, bouncer by night. He is strong and sexy, and did I mention sexy? When he meets Sydney he knows there is something about her. Working a horrific case together he learns of her troubled past. He vows then and there to protect her at all cost, that she will never experience something so terrible ever again. 

But when the case starts hitting too close to home, will he be able to keep his promise to keep her safe? Will Sydney let go of her fears and drop the walls around her heart to let Gabe in? Will she be able to let go of her demons for good and find love and happiness in the arms of Gabe?

Christa Lynn did an incredible job delivering this story. As I stated earlier, some scenes were difficult to read but I appreciated the fact that something so twisted was NOT sugar coated. It was all laid out perfectly and it made you feel for the characters that much more. The plot was well thought out and the story moved at a great pace. Some super steamy sex scenes and the element of suspense had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. An easy 5 star read that I will definitely recommend! Well done Christa
