"Life is a journey full of crossroads."
Heidi Lynne Michaels has lived her well-planned out life according to schedule, hiding from her past, and seeking forgiveness for her mistakes. She keeps everyone at arm’s length, until the day she meets him.
Gunther Mateo Jaeger has risen from the ashes of a crashed and burned career to establish the well-respected Phoenix Corporation, alongside his deceased best friend’s wife.
By day, he runs his salvation. By night, he loses himself in alcohol and the occasional woman, fighting to keep the loneliness at bay. That is, until the moment he sees her—his angel—and a ray of light breaks through the darkness.
Drawn to Heidi like he's never been drawn to a woman before, Gunner must prove himself in order to shatter the walls she's built around her heart.
But when secrets from their pasts and an unknown connection come to light, will their love prevail or will they choose different paths on this crossroad they find themselves at?

This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it.
You are taken on a bumpy journey with a young Heidi and a young Gunner. You see how their lives are different from the start. You see how their paths are forged. How paths collide.
The moment Gunner sees Heidi he feels the pull, and he knows in his heart he must have her. But Heidi being Heidi, the way she was brought up she tries keeping Gunner at arms length. Not only that, but Heidi is carrying a deep secret. You see the walls start to crumble around Heidi but she tries her hardest to keep them up. Gunner's friends are his family: his life. But they are very weary of Heidi and have the right to be so.
Will the truth come out? Will is destroy Gunner and Heidi?
Ups and downs take them to the point of their pasts colliding. The truth hurts but it is needed. But love is what heals the broken pieces.
You are taken on a journey with these characters and you see them grow into the people you fall in love with. You feel the love, loyalty and the pain within the Phoenix group. You see how their banter back and forth but you also love for each other. It was a great book for me to be introduced to this author. I'm looking forward to more.
