Date of Publication: March 16, 2017
Anya Volkov was adopted from Russia as a child, only to be rejected a year later, deemed difficult. After a lifetime of bouncing from foster home to foster home Anya is living in the East Village and scraping by playing gigs in small clubs, and facing eviction. She’ll do whatever it takes to keep a roof over the head of herself and her one year old son. Including making nice with the twin she doesn’t remember and stealing baby food from a grocery store. Always needed…
Kane Dermott doesn’t want to bust the pierced and sexy woman stealing at the grocery but neither does he want to help her or believe her sob story. Being a cop and the oldest of six siblings with a single mom, he’s always the one doing the right thing. The one everyone depends on. The good guy. For once he just wants to have some fun with the hot girl, and Anya is more than willing to make him forget her petty theft in the most delicious way possible.
But it turns out the sob story is real and in the murky world of black market babies, Anya and her son are in danger, and Kane can’t walk away from the mysterious and broken woman he has come to love. But neither can he trust her. When lies are truth and truths are lies, sometimes only love is the answer…
This was a great ending to the Blurred Lines series!! When Anya and Kane first got together, I wasn’t sure what to think. They almost seemed toxic to each other. Then Kane began to draw Anya out of her shell, and while she was still rough, we got to see a somewhat softer side of her, and what makes her who she is. She is a bit of a hellion, but with her past, it’s not too much of a surprise. These two heat up the pages, and their banter is crazy. This book is definitely a must read
