This first novel in this series had me in shambles. I wasn't sure how I felt about it at any given time during my read. All I knew was that I was hooked. I could not WAIT for this novel to get here. I needed answers after that ending and I needed them quickly. M delivered. This novel was EPIC.
The last novel left us up in arms. We couldn't have predicted the ending if you paid us, and this novel was just as unpredictable. Could both of our lovers get their lives together and ensure a happily ever after? Time would only tell. and time? It doesn't always move like we hope it will.
This novel was a lot about growing to find ones true self. Casey and Blake both had growing to do. Casey knew want he wanted and tried to fight for it. Blake knew what she wanted as well, but doubts and fear lead her to make a mass of wrong decisions. This novel was them learning to make choices for the right reasons and to think about the consequences. It was about learning who they really were. This was an emotional roller coaster that I didn't want to get off.
So I started book one with one set of feelings and ended it with another. This novel? Well I went back and forth. I was not the biggest fan of Blake. Really, if I am being honest I didn't like her much at all. This novel changed my perspective and as the characters grew my feelings changed. This was a novel about change. A novel about love. I opened my mind and heart to the chance that things could change and that a HEA could be a real possibility and this novel delivered. Sometimes it is hard to find the words that a novel makes you feel. This book is one of those. at deny given time I didn't know where it was going or how I would handle the end.
Don't fret. This novel is fantastic. Twice as good as the first and even more emotionally on edge. Fall in love all over again with Blake and Casey.
This isn’t just a two-year long one-night stand. It’s my life.
This is my life. Our life. It isn’t just some careless affair.
I’ve made the worst decisions a woman could, but I’ll earn my second chance.
She can try keeping all the guilt for herself, but I’m just as much to blame.
Loving Casey wasn’t my biggest mistake. Fighting it for so long was.
I’ll show her how fearless our love makes me. I’ll protect her torn heart.
He still has magic in his eyes. He’s the man who makes me happy.
Her voice still brings me to my knees. She says my name like it’s sacred.
I live for the day when I’m his. To take care of him. To love him the way he deserves.
I can’t wait to be all she needs. I can give her a happy life, security and so much love.
Sometimes two ships never meet in the night, but ours did.
Sometimes the water is rough. It beats you all to hell until you have no choice but get stronger.
Our love story reads more like a tragedy, but to me it’s clean and pure.
Let them point their fingers. Without a love like ours, they haven’t really lived. I pity them.
I’m a cheating wife and a villain. I am his honeybee.
I’m a snake in the grass and I sleep best when I’m lying next to his wife.
I want to be his everything.
I’m nothing without her anyway.
This isn’t even close to over.
It’ll never be over.
