As Watts and Catherine become more entangled in a relationship marked by searing sex and imminent danger, he reveals the horrific events of his past that led to his current, dark life. Now Catherine must decide: with all that she’s been through in her life, can she risk suffering the heartache she could be forced to endure if she stays with Watts?


I’ve had to do some unspeakable things in my life. Some might even consider me a bad guy.

My secrets can get people hurt, even killed. For that reason, I’ve never let anyone get close to me.

Until Catherine.

Her life of isolation so closely mirrors mine that I feel inextricably bound to her.

She’s my one shot at redemption, and I just may be hers. If the risk is too much for her, she’ll leave. If she stays, my life’s mission changes forever…

Due to mature themes, this book is recommended for readers 18+.

5 Stars

Illicit Contact is the second part of the Shatterproof series. I was hooked in Privacy code (the first part) by Watts and Catherine’s story, and jumped almost immediately into Illicit Contact, in hopes of getting more info on Watts. And I did!!!! Still love Watts, too J But, I still have Naked Risk to go and the ending of Illicit Contact makes me nervous. Please let this series end in a HEA!!!

“The way I saw it, I had three options: One, break things off with her; two, tell her everything and make her aware of who she had become involved with; three, go on like we had been and not tell her anything.”

Illicit Contact continues Catherine and Watts’ story after they decide to take their email relationship to the next level. The HOT level!!! And believe me when I say that the HEAT level does not come down a bit in this story. But, pasts finally come out and decisions have to be made about where they will go from here. And in my opinion, Catherine made the right choice. But, there is so much more to come!!

“I wanted so badly to know what it was about Watts’s life that necessitated his cloak of privacy.”

I am thoroughly enjoying where this story is going and actually like that it is broken down into three parts. It’s crazy but I feel so accomplished thinking that I am almost done with three different books 😉

Just like, Privacy Code, this one also comes highly recommended, but you have to read Privacy Code first 🙂
