Dive into small-town secrets in this brand new contemporary romance series from USA Today Bestselling Authors J.H. Croix & Ali Parker!

A small town can hide many secrets. It can also expose every secret you have. 

Facing danger I never expected, I don’t know who I can trust.

Meanwhile, Niki’s in more danger, and it’s all because she tried to help me. I’ll do whatever is necessary to keep her safe.

She rattles the cage around my heart and makes me wonder if I could have more. She’s everything I could ever imagine wanting.

Yet, events careen beyond my control as I search deeper into what put my father behind bars. I’m not safe, my family’s not safe, and Niki’s not safe.

She’s also feisty and stubborn and resists my efforts to keep her safe. She doesn’t like being kept in the dark and can’t see I’m only doing it to protect her.

I’m not ready to face what she means to me, not ready to lay my heart on the line. Until she calls my bluff.

*This is Book 2 of the Slow & Steady trilogy. There will be a cliffhanger and you will need to buy book 3 to continue the series.

    After a great book #1, I ended up a little disappointed with this one. Nothing important really happened, so it felt like this one was just a filler and it seemed repetitive. I also became irritated with Niki. I understand that something had to happen so that she and Sonny would break up and then get back together again later on, but Niki's actions seemed really immature and unnecessary. She seemed strong and independent in the first book, but now I feel like she ended up being too clingy. Hopefully, the final part will be better! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
  • Terrific continuation of the series!

    Suspense, danger, mystery and romance continue in this terrific second story in the series. Sonny is determined to protect Niki at all costs while their romance is still hot and steamy. Great writing and wonderful character development makes this series a must read. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.

  • Slow and Steady

    By Dawn Nosek
    Things get more heated up as the case against Sonny’s father becomes more complicated. It gets harder for Sonny to keep his feelings for Niki hidden but just as hard for him to express them to her. Between trying to keep Niki safe, and breaking his dads case open, their relationship seems to be suffering.
