Love endures all things.
Darby McKenzie's heart started beating funny the day that she met Trace Chamberlain. She was four, he was five, and that meeting altered the course of both their lives forever.
Trace was born into a nightmare. Before meeting Darby and her family, the only love he ever knew was that of his twin brother. The two of them endured years of abuse that left scars. The permanent kind.
For Trace, meeting Darby was like catching a rainbow. She exploded into his life in a pop of Technicolor that awakened his senses. She wasn't just his best friend—she was his life. His touchstone, his safety, his heart—she was everything.
Darby had been through it all with Trace and her love for him never wavered for a second. But no amount of love could make Trace believe that he was worthy of her. Knowing that she deserved better, Trace pushed her away, when what he really wanted was to pull her closer. Emotionally destroyed and bitter from the back and forth, Darby finally let go and decided to move on.
Sometimes hitting rock bottom is the only way to understand that you need to change. Realizing that losing Darby meant losing everything, Trace knew it was time to man up and fight for the girl he loved.
Is it too late for Darby and Trace to have a happily ever after?
**Content Warning: This isn't a book about an Alpha male. In fact, the Hero in this story isn't Trace, it's Darby. If the idea of the female being the strong one bothers you, this isn't your kind of book.**

I really enjoyed this second release to The Catch series! The back story behind the Tristan and Trace's upbringing was heartbreaking but interesting to read. Although the auther gave you a good picture about what had happened in the first book it was not overly predictable and still had me not wanting to put the book down. That being said I think I would have preferred to read these background stories more as a series of short stories and then read a whole book more about what happened to Darby and Trace in the aftermath of the events in the first book. I felt that there were too many word for word recaps on the events of the first book. It was a little disappointing because once again the ending felt way too rushed.but in the end I still enjoyed the read and I really hope there is more to come.
