“I knew with my whole heart that Roman still loved me. And I knew with my entire being that I’d always loved him.”
This book opens up in a very fast pace with Roman Leblanc and Elisabeth (Lissy) Keller. Roman is losing the love of his life and is feeling devastated. Elisabeth is done trying to please her husband and calls it a quit. They are going through a divorce; he is devastated and in denial and Lis is just sad and conflicted. Lissy and Roman tried to have children for many years however a child was not on their cards. After so much money spent Lissy was able to have a child to only lose the baby right after. Roman didn’t know how to help her and distanced himself from her with work thinking that he could help that way but instead it just pushed her away from him.
“She was the mirage. A woman I needed more than water and yet couldn’t reach no matter how hard I tried.”
Two years later they are both put in the same room with news they were shocked to hear. This news changes everything; for Roman is the beginning of a new start and for Lissy is the most horrible day of her life at least that’s what she thought. Little did she know that this will end up also being a great new start for her. However; this news was not so easy to take; after finding out that they could possibly have a child somewhere; life pulls them back together and this time Roman is never letting her go.
Let me tell you his bossiness and protective ways had me all hot and bothered and feeling incredible good about all the event on this book. Lissy tries so hard to not let him back in but damn it’s impossible to resist a hot alpha that would do anything to win her back.
We also meet a character that we will be able to find out more about on book two and let me tell you I cannot wait for their story. This book was excellent, I really loved everything about it. It was a book that once you start you will not put it down until to finish it. It had a lot of suspense, sexy scenes, a hot alpha, a couple struggling to work what they thought it was not repairable. This book was just incredible I enjoyed the ride and cannot wait to start the next one and see the end of this amazing ride.
