22736198I live my life by two rules. Never trust anyone and you don't need a weapon when you are one.  Melodee Lee aka Songbird

Melodee Lee is not your average twenty-three year old. Her parents were government trained assassins and the base definition of evil. The best thing they ever did was leave her an orphan at thirteen.

Life’s circumstances have honed her into a strong, independent outsider. She’s made it a point to never settle down, and trust is the last thing she gives. Utilizing her only skill, she makes money in the underground cage fighting scene and anyone who doesn't like it … well, Melodee can kick their ass as well.

Nathan Sinclair is a man with the world at his fingertips. His family is rich, politically connected and owns half of Syracuse, NY. A rising basketball star, set to be signed by the NBA, the last thing he needs is a woman with attitude crashing into his life.

Tragic circumstances bring these two people together when their worlds should never have collided. Will Nathan be the man to show Melodee that trust and a real home are not as unattainable as she believes? Or will his own demons and Sinclair family drama destroy the life they could have before it has begun?

*Note from author - This is a full length, standalone HEA romance. It is recommended for 18+ due to language and sexual situations.

******************************************

Melodee Lee was born as part of a cover for her 2 assassin parents.


They taught her:
  • Fight and survive
  • Trust no one
  • Depend on no one but yourself
  • Love and emotions are a weakness
  • Keep moving, never settle in one place
So as Melodee moves to yet another new place she encounters a tragic car accident that leaves an acquaintance dead and a young mother dead abandoning her baby girl unharmed in the car. Melodee is automatically thrown into the role of mother and is pretty good at it. She has good instincts and Nathan finds Doug's car in the ravine near his cabin. Melodee is instantly drawn to Nathan and together they care for the baby they are calling Jewel.

Nathan find out the Melodee is an underground fighter and it draws him to her even more. There is a magnetic pull between the two and soon they can not fight the pull any longer. Giving into their want and need for one another, they are not sure where this will lead. Melodee is sure that she can not have Nathan for the long haul, she thinks she is too damaged to be loved.  Nathan is determined to show Melodee that she is worthy of love and a beautiful person outside as well as inside, no matter what horrific things her past holds.

This was a very well written story of a girl who knows only tragedy and abuse. She has never known true kindness and love. And it is a story of a kind hearted guy who knows of love from his brothers and is willing to show love and give her everything. Together this is a beautiful love story that inspires us as individuals to take a look at all that we have and not take things for granted. Share with those who have less if we are able.

I like that there were not too many bumps along the way but the story has a little excitement and action as well.

RATING: 4 STARS



Happy Reading!
