This book is book four of the series but can be read as a standalone. I read it before reading any of the others and didn’t feel like I was lost at all. This book does have some darker elements that may be triggering.
Renee experienced incredible trauma now that she’s free, and trying to readjust, it’s not as easy as she would like. No matter what though, Declan, her brother’s best friend, is by her side. At one time, she had hopes of a relationship with Declan but she’s sure that thought has vanished. She’s broken and doesn’t want to bring Declan down with her. Declan will do whatever it takes to protect Renee. He’s had feelings for her for so long and he knows she feels unloveable. He has desires but as long as he’s in Renee’s life, he’s happy and will squash all desires if that means he can stay. What happens when Renee’s past comes knocking?
I enjoyed this book. What an emotional roller coaster. Renee and Declan really connected. Declan is the strong alpha protector and I loved reading about him taking care of Renee. Definitely recommend this book!
