Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life.

Four caskets. Two bodies.

Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.

Six months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.

Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy.

Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don't kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.


Maria’s review

“Nothing bled quite like regret.”

The blurb sure did pique my curiosity. Although intriguing, it reveals very little. So what did I find out after reading this book?

➦This sexy, dark and funny novel left me pleasantly surprised. The plot was unpredictable, both main and secondary characters were complex and likable, the pace was somewhat slow but kept me in suspense throughout the whole story.

➦Siblings Jillian and Jackson get stripped of their old identities and get a fresh start at life in a quiet community in Nebraska. The reason for their relocation is unknown to us. Jackson embraces his new self, while Jillian is having a hard time letting go of her old life.

Jillian is a very complex and fascinating character. She needs to make a man bleed during sexual intercourse. Throughout the book we find out about her psychological issues and which traumatic event made her the way she is.

❤Jillian has constant flashbacks into the past from which we learn about Luke, the love of her old life. I have to admit that I completely fell in love with Luke too. Meanwhile, in Nebraska… Jillian starts an affair with AJ, her sexy next-door neighbor. With both of them having mental issues, staying in a relationship proves to be rather challenging. Will there be a second chance at love for Jillian?

➦Having finished the book I am left with a lot of questions and I am very eager to continue with this series. I want to know which circumstances brought Jack and Jill to Nebraska and I am secretly hoping to see more of Luke in Jill’s life.

➦I highly recommend this series if you enjoy romantic suspense genre. While this book is somewhat dark and contains a tragic story within, it is also full of funny banter and steamy scenes. (third person POV)
