~DEE~

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.
I run.
But he just won’t let me go.

~BECK~

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.

After two disappointing books, you’d think I’ve learned my lesson, right? No. You are wrong. I still decided to read the third book in this series. All I can say is that while this is better than the second book, it still did not work for me at all.

First, we see Dee being the conflicted one who likes to run away from Beck every time he gets too close. In the first book, Dee was the brave one who saved Isabelle and got her out of the abusive husband’s house. In this book, you’d want to tear your hair out of your scalp because Dee has become this annoyingly weak woman who knows she has a problem but is not doing anything about it.

Don’t get me started on how she treated Beck the whole time. No person who loves you and treats you right deserves to be treated like that. Man or woman, nobody deserves to be treated like shit. And then they keep insisting that Beck is the only one who knows about her demons. Yeah, yeah, way to force your readers to sympathize and root for them to work out.

I also don’t understand the fact that when Dee was beaten and raped by Isabelle’s husband, she took a hint and kept her distance. What changed her mind and got her to helping Isabelle, even giving her a phone where they can communicate? And why is it that almost all characters in this series come from shitty families? Honestly, it gets old.

Man, I feel like I’m just going through the motions of reading this book just so I could see what happens to everybody else. I’m still going to read the next books that come out because, hey, I’ve already wasted enough time, right?

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 husbands chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!

Harper 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.
