Review: Glass Ceilings (True Heroes #2) by A.M. Madden

*****4.5 Stars*****

Another great read from A.M. Madden!
Nick meets Angela whilst he's working undercover as a bartender in Chicago. His attraction to her is immediate and all-consuming. But Angela is more reserved, she's been burned before and despite her overwhelming chemistry with Nick she's reluctant to start something new at that time in her life. However on New Year's Eve they share a perfect kiss and a sizzling night together. They open up to each other and discover they both have plans to move to New York soon. They decide to see where things go when they both get there.
But Angela never makes it to New York, and Nick is left nursing his broken heart.
Two years later and Angela and Nick once again come face to face again, and with so many secrets and resentment between them forgiveness seems an impossible task.
I love a good love reunited story, I'm a sucker for lost loves and "one who got away" stories. They really suck me in and have me really invested in the story and the character's futures. I loved both Nick and Angela and was gutted when things didn't work for them the first time around. I enjoyed the way this book was written and the way the mystery was woven.
I'm a massive fan of A.M Madden's Back-Up series and was thrilled to realise that Nick, who had an appearance in that series now had his very own book. And we get to see Ben from Stone Walls again in this book, I love it when my favourite series intertwine!

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.
