My Copy: NetGalley
When a perfect new love is shattered, two hearts will do anything to pick up the pieces. In this sizzling novel from the author of Stone Walls, irresistible heat leads to sensual thrills—and a secret that changes everything.
Two years ago, Nick Farley was undercover as a bartender in Chicago. The tough-as-steel FBI agent was working all the angles to build a case against a local crime syndicate, but even his intense focus was no match for the sight of Angela Cavallo’s plump pink lips pulling on her drink. All Nick got was one night—the longest, hottest, sweetest night of his life. It could have been the beginning of something real. Instead, she walked away—and Nick watched her go.
Angela has made some mistakes in her life, but Nick was never one of them. Nor was the baby boy he doesn’t know about. But Angela has been running from a stalker for so long that she’s forgotten how to feel safe. So when Nick suddenly reappears in her life, Angela faces a moment of truth. She wants to trust him and reveal her secrets—her life and the life of their son may depend on it—but first she needs to know that Nick can handle her past, and promise the one thing she most craves: a future together.
Nick Farley is a FBI Agent that is undercover as a bartender at The Dump in Chicago. He is a few days away from a shakedown at The Dump but he spots a beautiful woman walk past the bar.

A.M. Madden is a first for me. I thoroughly enjoyed Glass Ceilings and I think it is a remarkably good book. This can definitely be read as a standalone. I will definitely go back and read the first book in the series and look forward to book #3 in the series also! Once you start reading the book you will not want to put it down!
I give Glass Ceilings by A.M. Madden 4 stars!
