Quinn Harper is returning home to Salem Oregon, after being gone for five years. She left for the east coast, settled in Virginia to finish school and recover from a broken heart. Now that she’s getting her life together, she begins to realize that Zach is the one who has stolen her heart.

Zachary Jenson is coming home. He’s finished with his job as an FBI undercover agent and wants to start a new life with a family of his own. When he finds out that Quinn is also back, there’s nothing he won’t do to have her for himself.

After reading Life Out Loud, I was surprised to find out who is the villain turned out to be. The author had me fooled and it is done in a very deceptive way. This is the first book in the Salem Nights series, and my first read from Ms. Evans, who has done a great job with her creative, intrigue-filled and suspenseful writing. After being friends from childhood, Zach and Quinn, now as adults, learning they both feel the same way; there is a lot of steaming hot sex going on.

Zachary turned out to be a little possessive of Quinn, and yet very supportive of her needs and wants. I must say that he really developed into a warm person that I could admire with his love for his family. Quinn is a spitfire who had no one to lean on after the death her parents and from generations of family, she is left very wealthy. She had a problem deciding on a career and she learned a few truths about the people closest to her.
I am excited to learn what will be happening in the next story of this series or rather, who it will be about. While reading this book, I kept wondering how the end would turn out and imagine my surprise when I reached it! Ms. Evans sure does know how to spin a realistic tale of what could and could not go wrong. I say read and enjoy.
