Uncertainty and self doubt keep Rebel from falling too hard. Love and patience keeps Rocco going. Can they find their happily ever after, or are some things better left in the past?
I’ve read 7 of these books now and I have been so impressed with how she captures each unique person in their narration of things. It’s not often I find that narrators have such defined personalities and it’s not easy to change your narration style to fit different characters. These books are really well written and a great escape.
Rocco and Rebel a chance to heal
This is the seventh book in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series and it is an emotional, pull at the heartstrings read that brings readers Rocco and Rebel’s story. “Death hugs a person like a second skin, never leaving them after they feel it coating their soul.” Dealing with a loss is never easy and when it happens at a young age, the effects can be felt for many years after.
