Genre: Contemporary Romance

Neglected, abandoned by a heroin-addicted mother, and placed in foster care at ten, Enzo Jordan has learned one thing…love hurts. At thirty-five, he has a successful tattoo shop and his choice of women. The one-night stands are getting old, and the love he holds for his best friend, Aibhlinn is impossible to hide. When the attraction between them reaches a boiling point, he's forced to choose between facing his fears and walking away.

Aibhlinn Leahy has been in love with her best friend for years. The Irish-born comic book artist has poured time, energy, and love into the wounded man. His choice to walk away breaks her heart but frees her to explore a new future.

 Life is a cruel and amazing thing. An abandoned baby brings the two back together, and they’re forced to examine the love that has long existed between them. This is a story of pain, scars, and fear. We all have demons to battle. The real decision is who's in control…us or them?


Enzo and Aibhlinn have been best buds for years, they are also in love with each other and have yet to give into what both their souls are screaming for. Too bad that Aibhlinn is fed up with trying to get Enzo to realize that what happened to him in the past does not have to dictate his future. After deciding to give them a chance that have a night which leaves them both wanting more, unfortunately a nightmare arrives and leaves Enzo telling Aibhlinn that until he get his mind to realize what his heart is feeling he has to let her go. I love how Shyla spun a heart-wrenching tale but threw in suspense and intrigue along with other fantastic characters that you will want to know more about. I loved that they were friends first those are always the best kind of reads because she understood him more than anyone. Excellent book and a great start to what I'm hoping will be a wonderful series.


Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She's always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration. 

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household. 

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
