REVIEW: Desperate by A.K. Evans

by A.K. Evans
Series: Cunningham Security #3

Ekko Rose is no stranger to struggle. Even though she’s experienced more than her fair share of hardship, she has dreams she wants to fulfill. But when another stroke of bad luck leaves her homeless, Ekko's only option is to focus on survival.

Dominick ‘Dom’ Moore has had his eyes on Ekko ever since he saved her life several months ago. He kept his distance then because she was attached to another man. Now, seeing her living out of her car, Dom resolves to help her get back on her feet.

When Dom approaches Ekko, she wrestles with knowing her rightful place in the world and desperately wanting to latch onto something better.

Just as the pair fall hard for one another, Ekko’s streak of misfortune delivers one more blow. With their relationship thrown into a pit of despair and hopeless desire, Dom must crack the case he’s been trying to solve for weeks.

Because if he can’t, Ekko might be lost to him forever.

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.




I hadn’t read any of the books int his series but was so interested. Right from the get go I found Dom  to be such a great character. He helped Ekko but stayed away because he thought she belonged to someone else. He made him admirable to me because there are plenty of men who wouldn’t step aside. When he finally goes to Ekko he finds that his mistaken belief has left Ekko in need of help.



Ekko was such a wonderful character. She was so determined to make others happy at her own expense that my heart broke for her. She was the kind of person that needs love, kindness, and compassion and that is just what she finds in Dom. Even though she never believed she would. I can’t tell you how much this book touched me.

About A.K. Evans

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, she 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).
