Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.
Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.
Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.
But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.
“He apologized. Don’t you think you should do the polite thing and at least hear him out?”
“I don’t know.”
“You don’t know, or you’re just too scared to find out what will happen if you do?”
“Do we have to do this right now?” I sigh, and he tosses his arm around my shoulders and pulls me into his side.
“We’ve been doing this for months now. I’ve seen the way you look at him when you think no one will notice, and I see the way he looks at you, not giving a fuck if everyone sees. Even when he thought you and I were a thing, he still made it perfectly clear to those who were watching that if by some chance he got a shot, you would be his.”
“I really think you are reading way too much into this.”
I have read every single one of Reynolds books and there have been times when I didn’t think that I would like it, but then I find myself rereading them and falling for them.
This book, though, I may have a hard time doing that.
I really wanted to like it but I just couldn’t fall for the characters like I did in the other books. Sage is that alpha male bossy man that we know from the Mayson men, but for some reason I was just put off with the way he did. It’s confusing, I know, but I think it seemed more controlling then bossy. And the character Kim felt very weak to me, giving into Sage’s demands without a fight. At least with the other females they challenged the men so it was more entertaining for them to go back and forth.
Another thing that I love but missed in this book is the love scenes. Reynolds can writes some love scenes that have the pages scorching up, but this book was lacking. There were maybe a handful scenes (unlike the closer to ten or so that she usually has) and they didn’t really start until about 70% of the way through the book.
I did like that we got to see more of the other characters in this book (like Sage’s cousins and parents) and also Kim’s parents. We got to see the background of how she got to her parents and I liked the importance and difference that Sage and Kim had with their adoptions. It shows that there are two sides of story and can show how bad things can be.
After reading this, you are going to think that I hated it. I didn’t. But will I reread it? Probably not. The story that took place was in fast-forward mode and never really developed and the characters felt very flat that I don’t see myself reading it again.
