Guys. It was the perfect ending. I honestly had NO idea that this was going to play out they way that it did and I equate myself at being pretty good at predicting books outcomes. No clue. I was so completely way off.
IF you read the first book in this duet then you KNOW that at the end a big twist threw us all for a loop. If you haven't, it should go without being said that you need to read book one.
okay. Back to the book.
WHY HAVE YOU NOT ALREADY BOUGHT THIS BOOK? If you are reading this, take this as my 100% telling you that you need to read this book. It was absolutely amazing. I loved the twists and I swooned and I got teary and it was sweet and now my sentence is WAY a run-on.
Aly takes tropes and twists them on end. This is a second chance romance with twists you ever see coming and an underlying plot that leaves you mouth agape wondering how you didn't see the possibilities before they were revealed. I love to find those little context clues and Aly Martinez books always having me going back and trying to see what I missed.
Hands down a 5 star read.
When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me.
But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.
I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.
Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.
Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.
If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.
