He's got nothing to lose.  She has everything to offer.
Lorenzo De Luca’s troubled past has left him a shell of a man. The blood that runs through his veins feels toxic. Determined to not let history repeat itself, Lorenzo vows to protect others from the violence that lives inside him. 
But when Jolie Moore literally stumbles into his arms and his life, Lorenzo finds himself captivated by her larger-than-life personality. Jolie’s pull is strong, making it difficult for him to keep his promise. It’s hard to resist the urge to connect with the girl who wears her heart on her sleeve, but Lorenzo knows he needs to lock his heart away to keep her safe.
Because his legacy has the power to destroy. 
Jolie’s never been one to back down from a challenge, and her resolve to help him heal is strong. Lorenzo is wary, already content having found peace in solitude. But it isn’t long before Jolie shows him that he’s shielded others from a man who only has the capacity to love.


4 stars This is such a great book!  I enjoyed the storyline and loved the characters.  Lorenzo comes across as serious and reserved and the intense attraction he has towards Jolie is palpable. He hasn’t had an easy life and I just wanted to give him a big hug. Because of his past, he avoids relationships - no matter how much he wants Jolie. Jolie is a strong character and I loved her outgoing personality. She is the type of person that I would love to have in my corner. Opposites definitely attract in this book!  I also liked all of the secondary characters in this book.  Overall, I really liked Solitude as the plot was engaging, the characters were likable and well-developed, and the book moved at a good pace.  Solitude is my first book by this author and I plan to read the previous books in this series.  I received this book for free and I voluntarily leave this review.

About the Author:
A.K. Evans is a married mother of two boys residing in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania. After graduating from Lafayette College in 2004 with two degrees (one in English and one in Economics & Business), she pursued a career in the insurance and financial services industry. Not long after, Evans realized the career was not for her. She went on to manage her husband’s performance automotive business and drive the shop race cars for the next thirteen years. While the business afforded her freedoms she wouldn’t necessarily have had in a typical 9-5 job, after eleven years she was no longer receiving personal fulfillment from her chosen career path. Following many discussions, lots of thought, and tons of encouragement, Andrea decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.
Between her day job, writing, and homeschooling her two boys, Evans is left with very little free time. When she finds scraps of spare time, Evans enjoys reading, doing yoga, watching NY Rangers hockey, dancing, and vacationing with her family. Andrea, her husband, and her children are currently working on taking road trips to visit all 50 states (though, Alaska and Hawaii might require flights).
