“I can feel the sun warming my skin. I love this blissful state between sleep and just waking. But I no longer relish this moment for being numb, no…now I relish this moment because it reminds me I am alive.”
This was the story of Izzy and Axel. They were completely in love with each other but when Axel leaves for the Marines, fate somehow drives them apart. But they both know that they will never love someone as much as they loved the other.
12 years later they meet again. Izzy is trying to get out from an abusive marriage and Axel was the guy designed to protect her.
Neither of them is the same person anymore and a lot has happen in the past: especially a lot of lies, secrets and miscommunication.
But the feelings that never left are coming back stronger than never and when truth starts to unravel, things will never be the same again. This time they won’t let fate screw with them again.
This was a great reading. Nothing like a good old alpha-male book!
Axel is sexy and protective. Not to mention he’ll do anything to get Izzy back on his side. Izzy although annoying me sometimes, it was great too. When she wasn’t hided under her past shadows, she had pretty awesome remarks.
The supportive characters were also great, I can’t wait to read their books (Especially Greg’s and Maddox ones!)
The only reason I’m not giving this book 5 stars is because the word “fucking” was used too many times (I mean, there has to be a limit to say it!!) and the lack of communication really pissed me off.
Other than that, this was a great book. I couldn't even sleep before finishing it.
I will definitely follow this series :)
