Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for review from Give Me Books PR and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Dalton Barnett

Heaven Hill is my home. They took me in when no one else would, introduced me to my family, and have always been here for me. But now I'm on the outside, not able to help the woman who has my heart.

I'm stuck, unsure of what to do, and struggling badly. 

If anyone should be able to make their wife happy, it's their husband right?

Amanda Barnett

Born a bastard, raised a Walker, and now a Barnett, I've never quite known who I am. Not until someone called me Mom.

In the aftermath of the biggest deception our club has ever faced, Dalton and I are trying to cope with the miscarriage of our child. The piece of light and hope we had at the end of the darkest times Heaven Hill has ever seen was snatched from us, and even though I'm trying to cope. It's not going well. 

Gone are my feelings of belonging.
Gone is my excitement to face another day.

In its place, I'm hollow. 


My Thoughts:

This is a book where the story doesn’t begin here.  You should read Dalton first before proceeding here. 


Dalton has feelings he can’t seem to share.  At one point he has an epiphany which just shows that maybe it’s not just women that can do that.   Mandy is trying to heal.  What I thought was nice was how the author had her write letters to herself.  I think that makes it a little more personal then if you write in a journal – I just may steal that idea.  On the flip side, the scene brought tears to my eyes – cue tissue.  


 The author does a great job of getting the readers to feel the character’s pain without us having the chance to actually look at the person – but we can see them through our mind’s eye.  This has two stories going on until the characters are ready to turn it into one.  That’s when it becomes a page-turner because you don’t want to miss that moment.  That means you better not have any plans because you’re not going to want to put it down – even to take a break. 


This was one of those stories where my mind was going a mile a minute.  I was able to read this with no problems but it did get me to think, alot – even though it’s just a work of fiction.  We have a tale where you’ll have to get past all the emotional pain before you’ll see the love – it will be worth it – just remember the tissue.   


Some of you may find that there are parts are going to hit close to home so that may require more tissues.  One thing to come out of it is not to hold things in – talk things out.  Bottling up your thoughts and emotions don’t help.  Talking to those close to you and loving them is a great start.  Also, don’t be afraid to get a professional to help. 


If you think you may be getting past the tissue stage – think again.  One reason being that we get to hear from one of the secondary characters that you just may want to cry.  Although it would just be easier if you placed a box right next to you until you finish the whole story.

My Thoughts:

This is a book where the story doesn’t begin here.  You should read Drew first before proceeding here. 


Drew has a very real concern.  Charity shows how the concern came about.  Our author shows what some authors don’t show their readers.  There’s a nervousness present.  The men in the MC’s act tough but by seeing something that scares them makes them just like the rest of us. 


It’s nice to know we don’t have the worries they have to deal with.  Drew and Charity show that you don’t need the other books in this series to enjoy their story.  It’s not true when it comes to Dalton’s because they make an appearance. But then there are subtle hints that I could be wrong. This story is more mystery and suspense.  Even though this is part of a series, the author gives her characters her full attention as she develops them for our pleasure.   


The women are strong when they have to be but in love when their men storm in to protect them.  It’s also romantic and these two weren’t a couple, I think Drew would make a nice book boyfriend – especially due to all the heat he can create.  The ending reminds me what order this series needs to be read in.  And it left me ready for more.
