The allure of sharing my life with that one special woman is tempting but not the thought of falling in love again or having children.
Ten years ago, I lost everything that mattered - the love of my life, what should have been my daughter and the courage to go after all those dreams I once wanted. Instead, I threw myself into my job as a detective and my role at the Wounded Souls as a patched member. My life consisted of staying busy, keeping my niece out of trouble and not falling in love.
Love hurt, love meant loss. And without my permission, love was heading my way in the shape of a red-headed stunner with an independent streak a mile long. Kelsey tempted me, taunted my protective nature and damn if she didn't make me want things I promised never to go after ever again.
Jason Johnston was the main attraction of my best dreams, well he featured in every single one of them. The handsome and annoyingly bossy man was finally seeing me. Me. The girl from across the street, now a woman with a tormented past, and scars that ran deep.
He didn't care about any of that; he cared about me, protected me, one could even say he doted on me.
I could live with the fact he couldn't love me. Right?
Does love really have the power to heal two people so right for each other?
So excited for the ending of this duet after the devastation of the last book!
So excited for the ending of this duet after the devastation of the last book! With the first book in this duet leaving me in absolute tears, I was so insanely ready to find out what happens to Jason and how he gets his HEA. Years after the loss of his wife, Jason still has yet to recover or move on from it, but it seems like now becomes that time thanks to Kelsey. Recovering from what her mother did to her the entirety of her childhood, in addition to what happened in the last book, Kelsey has spent her time making herself more invisible and hidden as possible. Finally deciding to act on his feelings for Kelsey, and knowing she has been in love with him since childhood, they start to embark on a relationship that is a learning curve involving the death of his wife. All while they navigate this new relationship, Kelsey’s life is found to be in danger, and while it’s anticipated on who it is behind it, the person behind it definitely comes as a surprise and the reasoning behind it. But will it be Jason’s inability to move past losing his wife that ruins the relationship rather than the danger to Kelsey’s life. I love that Leah’s books give us both a suspenseful element in addition to the romance side. I was so happy and anticipating for this book and I was so happy that both Jason and Kelsey got their HEA in more ways than one! I can’t wait to see who Leah writes about next – I can’t get enough of her books!!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
