Getting a second chance of love is not something that we think that we would ever get. After what happened between Vale and Hawke, neither one of them thought that they would get a second chance either, but fate has a way with messing with us in the worst possible way.
Fate finds Hawke and Vale together again both with the Cold Fury, which is quickly become the match maker team. It works its magic again as the couple, which had a major falling out come together and have to work through what happened to them years before to try and find some common ground. Being the alpha male that Hawke is, he’s not someone that can just let go of the past without making Vale suffer just a little bit. But as he learns what happened that night and since, he starts to let go of that anger and opens up to the possibility of a future.
Vale is like a lot of us when we find love, we don’t think that we are worthy of it so we do everything that we can to push it away. It takes a strong person to try and make them see that we are worthy of love if you just open up your heart to it. I like the alpha male that is Hawke and at times he is frustrating because he let’s his ego/pride make his decisions for him (as most of alpha men are like). I like that moment when he finally lets her in and way that they explode.
Unlike the other books in the series, this one doesn’t involve many of the other characters in the series and it feels in many ways like a stand-alone. There are times when he mentions them but for the most part it doesn’t feel like it’s part of a series. I like that in a sense but not completely. I like when a series actually reads like a series where I may not understand certain mentions or notes without having read the other books.
The book does drag a bit after the reunion as it feels like she stopped so that she could start setting up the climax and that was anticlimactic in the end. I would have liked a bigger ending especially considering how the last book ended. Hopefully we get that in the new book.
