But the broody ex-Marine was the one man I could never have.
I’m not a girl who believes in fairytales. I’m no princess, and there’s never going to be a handsome prince coming to my rescue.
I don’t deserve it—not after all the hurt I caused.
So I tried to stay away, ran whenever he got too close. It wasn’t enough.
Mitch wouldn’t take no for an answer. He chased me until I gave in. Made me let go, break all my rules, and drop my defenses. He made me feel things I’d never felt before.
Our love was all consuming.
Are we finally ready to give up our hearts? Or will the wounds from our pasts continue to tear us apart?
Emotional romance and family drama! Sweet girl, Vivian and dreamy hunk, Mitch are a sexy couple. I loved Mitch right from the start when he appeared in the first book and became Viv’s cousin Frankie’s bestie. He’s the former military, former bartender, now security specialist heartthrob with his hot body and handsome face. He’s the touchy-feely type with all the hugs and kisses. But he has his demons from his military service. Now we get his story along Vivian’s. Mitch was smitten with the beauty at first sight. Viv wasn’t far behind but she likes control plus she doesn’t think she deserves happiness because of things in her past. Can she let go for Mitch and his sexy goodness? I didn’t get her drama around Mitch being her cousin’s bestie and it went on to long for me. The push pull was intense as Viv debated with herself and tried to avoid Mitch. I loved brother Vinny and can’t wait for his story. Vivian’s family wears me out! Father Marco sucks! Yep, controlling beyond acceptable and all the kids are so over him. He caused so much pain. This is a sexy romance with high emotions, suspense and drama. I love this cast of characters and this author intense writing style. Her Hitman series is fantastic. I look forward to the next installment in this terrific series.
