Do you take me seriously? Because I don’t. I use my jokes and easygoing personality to hide the pain I’ve felt since he took his last breath. I’m adrift without my partner in crime, my best friend…my brother. I can taste the vengeance just within my grasp.

Until she barges into my life. Promising me happiness and a peace I’ve been craving for years. She is the sun to my darkness, the happy to my despair.

But she holds secrets. Just like I do. She holds hers close, where I just pray mine don’t rock the walls we’re trying to build.

Now I’m stuck at a crossroads between my desire for revenge and my craving for her and the life we could have together—and I have no idea which road I should travel.

All I know with crystal clear certainty is that the past has the power to destroy it all.


Honestly, I really want to like this book. I like the angle they did with Zeke Cooper’s life, his death, and all that. I didn’t really like Chelcie that much, but she was okay. Now, Ash, him I liked. Not the same like as Fitzgerald Darcy, though.

The thing I didn’t like about the book was everything else. Here’s the thing, at this point in a series, it’s really going to be hard for an author to write characters who are all different from each other. I mean, this is already the fourth book. There were six other characters who came before Chelcie and Ash. I understand of the author is now having a hard time making this book’s hero an heroine stand out and have their own amazing back stories from the rest of the characters in the series.

However, to make them way too similar from the others is just unacceptable. First, all heroes have a whore of an ex. These exes all do something to the heroine. The hero is no longer is interested in them because, hello, he now has his eyes on the “perfect” woman who, despite previous hardships in life is still “perfect”. Notice the quotation marks there. Then, of course, either the hero or the heroine always has to have a family from hell. Yep. We should never forget that parents are cruel and your blood family does not care about you.

Another thing, is it really necessary to set the heroine up on dates when she is freaking pregnant with a dead man’s child? Can she not be made to stand on her own first, focus on her pregnancy first, and work on being able to have a stable life for her baby before she goes and starts looking for romance? Oh, and of course, these dates are always disastrous because, hey, only the hero can be the best man for her, right?

And what’s the thing with that ex fiance showing up from out of the blue? Hello, their conflict was brewing on the man that Ash was trying to exact revenge on. However, no, that man did not do anything at all in the book. He was just a name, just nothing, actually. Surprise, surprise, the villain who almost harmed the heroine is the avenging ex girlfriend who isn’t right in the head anymore. Yeah…. Like, we care? That part of Ash’s life could have been left in the past. It would have been more exciting if the heroine was kidnapped by the man they were closing in on and then a dramatic, actionc-filled confrontation and rescue takes place. But now, we, readers are denied that.

I really want to stop reading this series now. However, there’s only one more book left, so I will carry on and read the next book and hope to hell that it wouldn’t suck as everything else did.



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.
