Nearly the last remaining member of Olivia Cattenach's family has just died overseas and left her overcome by grief. But when a soldier shows up at her ranch with a final message from her brother, she finds new purpose. Nathan Roldan is as formidable as they come. Bulging muscles and inked to boot, he looks like every bit the bad boy he claims to be. Except, under his shuttered gaze and behind his walls lies a gentle giant. Determined to carry out her brother's wishes, she chips away at Nate's layers and discovers more pain than any person should ever have to endure. And a passion she never dreamed was possible.
He's not the hero she thinks he is...
Nate's mistake got a fellow comrade killed, and a deathbed promise to take care of the guy's sister lands him in Wyoming with the hope of redemption. But he wasn't expecting...her. Beautiful, witty, and sweet, Olivia is everything he doesn't deserve. Born a nothing, he'll die a nothing. Though guilt is a living thing, temptation is too hard to resist. Somehow, she's unleashing his restraint and unearthing feelings he buried long ago. He wants her. More, he's worried he needs her. She's trying to save him, but when she learns the truth, he'll lose the only happiness he's ever known.
The loneliness and heartbreaking survival guilt that one person had to crawl through to accept love and friendship in his life brought tears to my eyes. This was an epic story that I couldn't put down.
I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.
Loved Olivia and Nate's story!!!!
Kelly Moran has yet to write characters that don't have me falling head over heels for them, and Nate and Olivia just might top this list. I freaking loved Olivia's attitude. She's such a strong, determined heroine, but also passionate and understanding. Nate feels he's broken, but still has this side to him that's protective and kick butt. This story had me laughing and crying in equal parts, and it was awesome seeing Olivia bring light and life to Nate's world.
I would definitely recommend reading this!!!
