Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he’s back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn’t recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.
Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can’t buy.
Maybe it’s that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.
While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he’s not willing to accept the light that she offers him.
I started this book literally right after finishing On the Rocks by Sawyer Bennett. This is Brody’s book who you see and get to know superficially in the first book. Luckily (???) I was home sick from work so was able to jump right into Brody and Alyssa’s book. I tore through it quickly and enjoyed it just as much as the first. I love that the women are independent, feisty and have potty-mouths. I love the alpha maleness of the men who love deeply and protect fiercely the one’s they love. It was great to get to know Brody better and get into his head. The dual points of view make these books even better than single POV. Once again the characters grow throughout the book as Brody learns to open himself up again and Alyssa learns to trust those around her, while dealing with a crazy ex. The climax was riveting, the reveal was heart-warming, the epilogue was awesome!!!
