A changed name, a different country, a new life.
Carte blanche, right?
Perhaps, and I might have enjoyed it under different circumstances. But the bottom line is- he won't stop until I'm dead.
I've done my best to stay in the shadows. Laying low and only speaking when I absolutely need to. It worked well for me until Ryder walked into my life. Or more accurately, jogged.
The dark and broody owner of Callaghan Securities invaded my reclusive bubble when I least expected it. Knowing that my time spent avoiding people could be coming to an end, I have an important decision to make. Am I able to open up about my past? Let him in, let him help?
Or will I embrace the cold hearted bitch I have become and leave him behind like everything else in my shit life.
I was once a nice woman named Jayne O'Connor.
I’m not sure I know who that is anymore.

Book #1~Frayed Rope

Rating: 4 Stars

This was the first book I read by Harlow Stone.  I liked that the story kept me on edge a little. You never knew who was lurking in the dark ready to strike poor Elle.

Frayed Rope was told from Jayne O'Connor a.k.a Elle Davidson.  Elle has flashbacks to an event that will always hunt her. The flashbacks helps the reader to understand why she wanted a change and also leave you guessing.

This story was about a woman trying to hide and maybe even start over after a horrific event that left her marked.

I enjoyed that even though Elle went through so much she was still determined, strong and under it all she still cared. She did have a potty mouth which the Ryder seem to enjoy. She tried her best to stay away from Ryder but Ryder was also determined, hot as hell and took no for an answer. I love the banter between the two and enjoyed how their friendship blossom. 

 I must admit that the story did drag in the beginning. At times I was bored but I kept on pushing and I am glad that I did. When the story got going, boy was I trying to keep it.

Overall, I loved the suspense element to the book and under it all both Ryder and Elle seemed to grow. The characters were good, the author writing style was also good.

Good story all around :)

Ryder has done his best to break my armor. It’s been a slow process but he’s reminded me what it’s like to feel again. I could never thank him enough for the toe curling and life altering experiences. He’s been my light in a hurricane-but even I know the sun can’t shine all the time. I have a big decision to make and it’s not as simple as just going left or right, forward or backward.
I’ve heard people say that when we hit a crossroad in life, the only difference is that one way is longer than the other. (Believe me when I say that these people are full of shit-don’t listen to them.) I’ve hit every fucking intersection from Canada to the USofA and no matter what direction I take, the distance is always the same. The reason for this is because it’s not about the distance, it’s about the outcome of the journey.
This journey of mine only leaves me two choices and neither satisfy me. Do I continue on my path towards retribution for my family? Or do I focus on the first man to crack my ice cold heart? He’s the only man who has ever made me feel safe at night; the first to truly accept all of me- scars included.
I’m at a crossroad and no matter which way I turn, I’m fucked.
Ryder or retribution?
This life of mine isn’t a fairytale- I know I can’t have both.

About the author
I am a thirty year old woman who loves books. Not just reading them, but books themselves. I have had a weird obsession with libraries and maps since I was a child.
Perhaps I can call it fate that I wrote my first book about a woman enters more than one address into her GPS throughout the story?
Sunny days and wine make me happy, and when I'm not enjoying the wine you can usually find me reading or making crafts with my six year old.
