Atone by Beth Yarnall

Beth Yarnall’s sexy and emotional Recovered Innocence series continues as two broken souls discover that keeping their hands off each other is even harder than facing their demons.

Beau: Six years. That’s how long I spent behind bars for a crime I didn’t commit—the murder of the woman I loved. Now I’m free, but life on the outside is a different kind of prison. I don’t know who I am or who I want to be. At least I have my sister, Cora. She never stopped believing in me. She even got me a job at the private investigation agency that cleared my name. And then Vera Swain walks into Nash Security and Investigations and kicks my world on its ass.

Vera: There’s only one thing that would make me come out of hiding after two years on the run: finding my sister. I made the mistake of telling a monster about her, the same monster who beat me and broke me. Now I’m forced to confide in Beau Hollis of Nash Security and Investigations. He looks at me like he knows me—the real me. He sees too much, makes me feel too much. The pleasure he offers is exciting and addictive. But I can’t fall for him . . . because my love could get us both killed.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

It was the second volume of a story and I've only learned about it when I was looking for reviewing this book. So you can really read it by itself without trouble. :-)

Honestly, the beginning is a bit heavy and hard. Was not really connecting with Beau until his armor cracks and he lets Vera and the reader in. As for Vera, she is a taugh cookie, who went through hell so her character is a very strong one.

This story is not the typical sunshine love story full of heats, as the author has decided to talk about sexual slavery and how girls can easily be manipulated, but it's an interesting one.
Like the plot and the way Beth Yarnall has written her story. It was great on the emotions maybe a little too close off on the location as the two heros don't really go out.

Interesting novel with some potential.
