I Liked It!
Where do I start with this one? This is an amazing read that will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end! This book is so much more than I expected and am eager to read the other books in the Corps Security Series!
The prologue of this book is a little rough to read, as it deals with some horrible issues, but trust me, you need to read it, to understand the pain that Izzy has gone through.
Izzy gave her heart away at the tender of age of 17 and had it broken. She ends up in a destructive and abusive marriage, and is finally free, but not really living. She has a lot of issues with the things she went through with her marriage, and having her heart completely shattered when she was so young. You get a little bit of a glimpse of Izzy trying to be happy, when BAM Axel shows back up in her life.
These two have a lot of things to work through, and a lot of pain that has grown in the past 12 years, but through the whole book you are hoping that these two can make things right and be happy together once again. I loved Axel, and his dominant alpha male attitude. Even though you wanted to slap him for how he treated Izzy when they first talked, I understand where he was coming from, his perception of what happened between the two of them, and Izzy’s is completely different. I loved seeing these two give and take, and seeing Izzy push him away, afraid to be broken all over again, and scared to let him in. When things finally seem to be resolved between the two of them, things quickly heat up, and your Kindle (or whichever device you use) will be steaming up from all the hotness!
This story may be about Izzy and Axel, but it is about so much more than them. You will fall in love with each of the “family” of friends they have, and if just the little taste we got of the other Corps Security men is any inclination of what is to come in the next books, I can NOT wait to see what these other men have in store for us. You will love Dee (Izzy’s best friend) and Greg. I know that Izzy wouldn’t be where she is now if it wasn’t for them and their undying loyalty and love for her.
The epilogue of this book was amazing and the story ended beautifully, but what made it even better was the deleted scenes at the end. Seeing how everything played out with these characters will definitely give you the HEA you will crave and have you falling in love with these characters even more.
This book is about pain, loss, friendship, and finding that one love that can never be destroyed. I fell in love with the writing style of Harper Sloan, and the characters she brought to the reader in this book. I can not wait to dive into the other books, especially knowing that Axel and Izzy finally got everything they deserved.
