What happens when the person you love becomes threatened by your very existence? How far will you go to keep them safe?
Luke Ryann will do anything to protect the woman he loves, even if it means shattering her heart. When the mystery of his past comes back to haunt him, he leaves Reese behind and enters the life of crime he had worked so hard to escape. When all is said and done, will he be able to get out of this alive, or will he be in over his head?
She’s been in love with him since her childhood, but now she questions everything. After Reese Johnson discovers Luke’s disappearance has nothing to do with the MMA, she faces a difficult choice. Can she find it in her heart to forgive him? Or will the secrets and lies be too damaging for her to trust again? Will this couple ever have a chance? You know what they say.
Sometimes … love just isn’t enough.
“He abandoned you, Reese. He discarded and abandoned you, but you still love him. It’s clear all over your face.”
I flick my eyes away from his. “I can’t just snap my fingers and turn off my feelings,” I reply, unsure what else to say. “I don’t know what’s wrong with me.”
His eyes soften. “There’s nothing wrong with you. That’s what I’m trying to tell you. Can you consider giving us nicer guys a chance? I’ll wait until you’re ready. You’re worth it to me.”
This book was a real roller coaster, Luke has done the unthinkable and left Reece without any explanation! She’s hurt, confused, angry & just totally lost, it’s been months and all she has are his best friends assurances that he’s gone for all the right reasons - how can that ever be enough?
Of course we know Luke is protecting Reece and his smouldering bad ass self is doing everything in his power to bring down his father so that Reece can live without having to look over her shoulder!
This book has some really emotion packed moments that made me sob. Luke & Reece both face some really tough challenges whilst they’re apart & the only people they want to comfort them cannot be there.
Even though this was the next stage in what is a story of love, it had so much more, action packed, tense, suspenseful & a cliff hanger that leaves you feeling it might take some serious work for these two to get a Happy Ever After - if at all!!
