Beth Yarnall’s sexy and emotional Recovered Innocence series continues as two broken souls discover that keeping their hands off each other is even harder than facing their demons.
Beau: Six years. That’s how long I spent behind bars for a crime I didn’t commit—the murder of the woman I loved. Now I’m free, but life on the outside is a different kind of prison. I don’t know who I am or who I want to be. At least I have my sister, Cora. She never stopped believing in me. She even got me a job at the private investigation agency that cleared my name. And then Vera Swain walks into Nash Security and Investigations and kicks my world on its ass.
Vera: There’s only one thing that would make me come out of hiding after two years on the run: finding my sister. I made the mistake of telling a monster about her, the same monster who beat me and broke me. Now I’m forced to confide in Beau Hollis of Nash Security and Investigations. He looks at me like he knows me—the real me. He sees too much, makes me feel too much. The pleasure he offers is exciting and addictive. But I can’t fall for him . . . because my love could get us both killed.

“Being with Cassandra was like… like the sun shining on me all the time.”
“It’s funny how you never thought about wanting something until there’s absolutely no possibility of ever having it. Then you want it more than anything.”
Drama, tension, angst, intrigue, secrets – so many secrets, and they are oh so slowly revealed to keep the suspense and reader wound tight. And I certainly was. I adored the first book in the series, Vindicate and Atone continues with focus on the newly released Beau, who is attempting to learn the PI trade from his sister. His first day on the job, a new client catches his eye, and it is on like Donkey Kong. Atone was considerably more sensual, suspenseful, intense, and darker than Vindicate, but continues with many of the same characters as well as several new ones. I am curious to see who Ms. Yarnall will turn her focus on for book 3.
