It isn’t always as easy as it sounds.
Becoming a Marine had been Ryker’s dream, but that dream faded when it led to losing the one girl who held his heart.
Returning to Alabama after being gone for more than five years was going to be hard, but he couldn’t continue to live without her.
His world seemed empty and there was only one thing that could heal that void.
Beg for her forgiveness…
And never let her go again.
She would always be his..
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Nic and Ryker!! These two have a long history!! They were first loves but when Ryker walked away, it devastated Nicole.
Nicole has lost the love of her life but gained her daughter after drunken night. She misses Ryker but knows she will never have him. She is ok with it since her daughter Tori is her reason for living. When Ryker comes home to reclaim her, she is not ready for all his declaration.
Ryker thought that walking away 5 years ago would be the best thing for Nic. He has hated that decision and then to hear she had a child with someone else, left him destroyed. When his time with the military is over, he comes back to their small town to claim his girl.
Ryker is not going to take no for an answer and I loved him for that. He knew he has a lot of groveling to do for what he did to her heart all those years ago. Nicole was so scared of letting this man back in because it’s not just her heart that would be broken but her daughter.
I loved seeing the couple with the push and pull of their chemistry. I loved him opening up and doing anything he can to prove to her that she is his one…gahhhhh…the tattoo…..sigh. I loved how Ryker fell so hard for Tori and would turn into a melted pile of mush for the little 3 year-old. But I loved that fact that they didn’t just have a HEA and run into the sunset. They had issues to be discussed and issues to worked out to make them become the family we all hoped for them.
A little about me. Let’s see where to start.
I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right.
I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.
