Cruel Water Synopsis:
Innocence marked her…
Violation crippled her…
Love left her raw…
The life she carefully rebuilt is challenged when she is confronted with the sins from her past. The carefully applied protection is at once ripped away, leaving her exposed and vulnerable.
Her single night of indulgence with the silver-eyed stranger is only the beginning. He sees right to the heart of her and she is unable to ward off emotions that have been deeply buried. With the sting of betrayal still fresh in her soul, she’s surprised to find herself opening up to the honest integrity of the sharp-eyed, rough-looking biker.
When he lost everyone who mattered, he was left without roots and learned to be content simply living in the moment. Completely unprepared for the feisty blonde bartender with old pain marring her clear-blue eyes, he questions his own rules of detachment, as she unwittingly finds a way under his skin.
Appearances deceive and when the masks fall away, revealing deep, dark secrets, there is nothing left but to hang onto each other and survive the storm.
This was my first book I have read by Freya and let me tell you it is not going to be the last. I was so enthralled with these characters that I was sitting on the edge of my seat needing to find out what happens next.
Secrets can destroy you. They always have a way of coming out when you don't want them to and this is what happens to Viv. She has lots of secrets one being she changed her life and cut everyone out. She stays to herself working as a bartender. That is until one day in walks a gorgeous guy that will change her world. It is scary and crazy but this sexy guy wants to uncover every secret Viv has and get into her heart.
Will Viv let him in or will she block him out and flee like she did before? This is a must read story.
