For ten years, Avery Easton has quietly lusted after her twin brother’s best friend, Ridge Gates. When the cruel, cold hand of fate takes her brother’s life, Avery and Ridge turn to each other in grief and share a night of ecstasy. But mind-blowing sex with the man of her dreams can’t push away Avery’s reality.

Violent and terrifying events have followed her brother’s body home and introduced Avery to another man…one who’s willing to give her everything she needs. And then there’s the secret she harbors that could tear her and Ridge apart even as it connects them for the rest of their lives.

A promise on the battlefield led Ridge straight into the arms of the woman he knows he has no business being with, but can’t stay away from. If he fails to come to terms with his broken body and Avery’s revelations, he could lose her forever—if not to another man, then to the violence that brought Ridge and Avery together.

The most unexpected and sad fates can draw to people together.  That's truth for Avery and Ridge.  The two had secret feelings for one another, brought together by her brother and his best friend after his life ends sadly.  The emotional element of this book will have you in tears, good and bad.  It's written so well, the story grabs your attention and if you're an emotional reader, you might want to have a tissue handy.  I found myself so involved in the story that the outside world just had to wait.  I just had to know how things would work.  The tension builds and builds until it all explodes with one captivating climax.

Spliced is a contemporary read that delivers, hands down.
