When you are completely broken, you have betrayed the family you have ever known to help your true blood family will they ever be able to forgive you.
Gunner is left broken, paying for the decisions he made against the people he deemed his only family but how could he have left his sister after she needed him when she was kidnapped. He is now in so much grief he does not know how he can carry on to live in this world with this guilt punishing him all the time.
Lacey has decided she can’t take the fame and abandons her life in the limelight to a quiet town but she always goes back to the time she had that one true love and he totally hurt her, until the day he walks back into her life and she sees he is just as broken as she is. Can they both heal each other or will a distraction threaten to end this budding relationship or can they both find the courage to fight for what they both want.
This is the first book I have read from this author and oh my I enjoyed every word from start to finish. I loved the broken nature of Gunner, who in essence should be a stone hard fighting machine but to see him so broken and lost was heart-breaking. When the two characters meet there is that initial chemistry but it smoulders underneath as they are trying to figure each other out all this time. My lord then adds in the element of the twist of who is after them and will their new found relationship recover brilliantly. The story is well written and the characters within the book are well developed and just enhance the story. I read this as a stand-alone story which I think is fine, but to truly get the family feel from the group I think I need to start at the beginning and read the series (oh what a hardship LOL). I think I have found my new obsession for the next few weeks.
