I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.
Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.
Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.
He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.
*Bleeding Love is the second book in the Hope Town series. Each book in the series is a HEA and can be read as a standalone.*
Megan has had a terrible life. She is a single mother who we met in Unexpected Fate. Her husband was killed overseas. He was her best friend growing up with her crappy parents and she misses him dearly. She meets Liam (Lee) through Cohen and Dani (Unexpected Fate). From the time he sees her Lee knows she is the one, but he also knows that she has shut herself down from caring for anyone but her daughter. They are often in the same social situations and he watches her only speaking to her now and then so he doesn’t push her away, until he can see she is in a little better place and then he makes his move. Lee won’t let up until she is living again. He was very sweet and never really waivered in his feelings for her and he loved her daughter just as much. I would recommend you read Corps Security: The Series first, especially Beck (Liam’s parents story). It can be a stand alone but it’s nice to have the background on their parents in my opinion.
Loved this story from start to finish. There's nothing better than a second chance romance. Liam and Megan are a couple that just made u want to root for them. Little Molly was too adorable with getting all those grownups to play tea party and makeover with her. Yet again Ms. Sloan delivers.
