Not for a Moment by Nadirah Foxx
When love turns to terror…
Love is the last thing Rachel St. John expects when she meets two handsome men on the same night. Leo Kilpatrick is a stranger who catches her eye at the neighborhood bar. He turns out to be a nice, fun-loving man—a little on the mysterious side but nothing too serious.
Matt Wallace—a cop on a mission to right a wrong—is her blind date. A serial killer murdered his foster sister, and Matt’s determined to find the culprit. The officer’s dedication makes him dark and a little dangerous.
After meeting Matt and Leo, strange things start happening in Rachel’s life—like a weird dream coinciding with a power outage confined to her apartment only. Then the threats begin. Her gut tells her not to trust no one. It doesn’t help that neither Matt nor Leo trust each other.
Rachel wants to trust her heart, but will it protect her?
Better yet, can either man protect her from the real danger?
When safety can no longer be found at home…
When the one who holds your heart can’t be trusted…
When the obvious isn’t anymore, who do you turn to?
