Aimee Taylor makes a decision that will haunt her forever. Unfortunately life doesn’t come with a do over; therefore, she makes the best out of what she has.
An unforeseen circumstance brings these two together again, even though, neither can explain how or why the other seems so familiar. As love tries to heal this wounded couple, a common adversary seeks to destroy.

Right at well almost at the beginning I knew how I was going to rate this read. I changed it as the end came closer. Lora Ann was a author I had never heard of but very glad that I have remedy that. Branded must have touched all kinds of emotions. I had a hard time trying to figure out who needed a hug more.
Aimee a strong and sassy woman, out to doing what she needs to do so that she can secure her future.
Nik just call him a take over king he has made it his life work and he is good at him. He doesn’t make excuses for being rich.
I am a true believer in fate and fates ability to do things its way. Nik and Aimee had met once… ohhhh but will they remember? Will they remember it as just a passing of passion or a soul looking for a home.
Lora Ann worked some serious magic for me with this, each page I read I just wanted more. Granted a decent length at a bit over 250pgs. It only dragged a bit at the very beginning. Then it was game on, you heart wont be able to be indifferent… Both Nik and Aimee has scars to let heal, where as one is pretty much ready to do that while the other would sooner burn in their own living hell. Though there is no BDSM not even elements… there is a bit of DOMish personality.
With a air of mystery a bit of intrigue, a lot of hot fan your face scenes. I’d tell you to grab this read and delve into the world that Lora Ann creates, feel the aggressiveness, the passion, the family, friendship danger and love.
