**Warning** This book is intended for a mature reading**
I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man.
But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.
All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self-right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have.
So I did the only thing I know how to do.
But he just won’t let me go.
The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.
To make her mine. She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.
She’s it for me and she knows it.
She’s just too scared to admit it.
**NO cliffhanger, HEA, inter-connected standalones**
We met Dee and Beck in Axel but this is a story all about them amd their journey to find each other.
Dee has had a challenging life. All the men she has ever been close to have turned violent or have just let her down. She knew at a early age that she would never trust a man for free of being broken. Her mind starts to change the minute she lays her eyes on him.
Beck knows he good looking, but he is wanting something more then one night stands. He has seen 2 of his close friends meet and fall in love with their soul mates. The second Dee opens her mouth and talks to him he knows he has to have her and doesn’t plan to lose her. He also sees she is hiding behind a mask. He has made it his goal to find why this beautiful woman seems so broken.
Damn, when they finally kissed you could feel your kindle heating up it was that HOT. But Dee knew just after one kiss he could be the man to completely destroy her if something were to go wrong. So she does the only thing she thinks to keep him at a distance but that backfires cause he said he will change her mind.
"I didn’t ask for forever. You want to love in the moment and get off while you're at it i wont judge you. But fair warning. I'll do my best to change your mind."-Beck
Everything is looking good for Dee and Beck, she is finally ready to try when a certain horrible man comes back into their lives and makes her remember why she is so guarded. She slowly shuts down and pushes Beck out. Beck though stays and fights. This book is over a couple of years and when more difficult events happen Dee knows its time to start living and stop hiding.
She knows the only way to move on is to talk about the past. When she tells Beck what has happpened my heart hurts for both of them. And well even in a book when a man cries so do I. She then knows she needs to tell her "family" Izzy and Greg. They to take it horribly and blame themselves. In the end though that was all Dee needed to release the past and start living for the future with Beck.
Beck knows all the fight was worth it and he would do it all over again if it meant he would live forever with Dee by his side.
In the end this book had me gutted. It is so different then Axel or Cage but in an amazing way. Beck and Dee needed a true heartbreaking story and I cant wait to see what is in store for them as well as all the rest of the character.
This books gets 5 HUMONGOUS STARS
There isn’t a lot that I can say that Meli didn’t cover but here is my two cents worth anyway....
Dee is the type of friend every chick needs in their corner. She protects what has become her family, even when she should have turned to them for help. I really understood Dee so much better here. I understood why she was fighting against her feeling so much and why she was trying to fight her demons alone. Beck was amazing. I fell head over heels for him and his willingness to stand by Dee through it all. Even if that was at a distance. The chemistry that these two had was EXPLOSIVE!
Watch out for that curve ball that comes barreling toward you in this one. That sucker hurt like a bitch! But the aftermath was beautiful.
I cannot wait to see where the series goes from here. As always Harper gets 5 HUGE stars from me as well!!
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her ereader attached. As an ex-reviewer and blogger, Harper's passion for reading runs deep. It wasn't until 'Axel' decided to take up residence that she realized her true calling. She started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
