Distance sure as hell made his heart grow fonder… But it shattered hers into a million pieces.
Langley Vaughn knows she's never going to make the same mistake again.
Who falls head over heels in love in a week? Langley did, and she's regretted it every day since she handed her heart to a boy with too many secrets and too much baggage. Iker doesn't fit into Langley's world, and he made it clear he doesn't want to. He left before she even got a chance to try and change his mind or to prove to him how good they could be together. Langley's spent the last nine months healing her heart and making big plans for the future. Plans that absolutely don't include Iker… even though he's back, looking better than ever, and saying all the right things.
Iker Alvarez knows he made the biggest mistake of his life.
At first, the pretty blonde in the red dress was nothing more than a means to an end. But, she quickly became so much more. As soon as Iker walked away from Langley, claiming it was for her own good, he knew he screwed up. He left her so she wouldn't worry about him when he deployed, so she wouldn't waste her time waiting around for a guy who was never going to be good enough for her. Only, nine months and a deployment later, Iker still can't get Langley out of his head… and he totally underestimated the hold she has on his hardened heart. He's a guy who's not sure how love should work, or how to go about winning his girl back…he's about to get a crash course in both.
Great Beach Read
The conclusion of the story was predictable but sweet. I loved the way the two characters connected at the end of the story. It was worth reading the two books.
Great Conclusion to the Duet
This book begins nine months after the last ended. Iker is back from deployment, realizing that time and distance did nothing to diminish his feelings for Langley. It just made him realize how badly he screwed up. Luckily, he has his brother Gael in his corner. Langley has spent the last nine months trying to piece her broken heart back together and is shocked when Iker returns asking for forgiveness and another chance. Despite her misgivings Iker wears he down with sweet gestures and she agrees to give him a second chance. However, time is their enemy again. As a couple their chemistry is still off the charts, but they have learnt from their mistakes and you see them grow as they learn to communicate and compromise through the good times and the struggles to ultimately get the HEA. This a great conclusion to the duet. Well written, easy to read, steamy, and you will get pulled into their life/struggles. Highly recommended.
