Alayna Withers relationship with Hudson Pierce has tested both her and his ability to trust. They decide that the only way they can move forward together is with open doors and transparency. It won’t be easy for the scarred lovers, but they’re committed to each other more now than ever. Alayna, in particular, has grown through their trials, and has emerged more confident and faithful to the man she loves.
But while the pair is focused on the future, their past shows up again to threaten their fragile bond. Promises that were made are broken, and Alayna learns that Hudson still has very potent secrets—secrets that will tear them both apart. As much as she feels for him, her ability to forgive and forget is tested beyond her limits.
Even though she found the only man who could fix her, a forever with Hudson seems more and more out of reach.
Omg. This book gave me so many feels. Though I was shocked at how quickly Alayna forgave him, there is no way I could rate it less than 5 stars. Emotion drips off the pages and I felt everything. Such dark complex characters. Wow.
Well, that was one hell of a read, and a fantastic way to bring Laynie and Hudson’s story to a close.
Initially, it started off a little slow and I wondered if there was enough of a story to support a third book. I’m happy to have been proven wrong. Once Laynie watched the recording things started accelerating at a manic pace. I knew immediately what Hudson and Celia had done and I was sickened to my stomach. Though I was hoping I was wrong, it turns out I wasn’t. I pretty much hated him a lot of this book as his actions really rocked my faith in him.
This book was so emotive – I felt everything Laynie felt. Explosive passion, scintillating chemistry, and the gut-wrenching angst of betrayal and heartache. I was a basket-case reading this book.
At one point, I wanted to kill Hudson. And don’t even get me started on Celia! Those two were so fucked-up! Alayna looked like a saint next to that pair and that’s saying something.
I was annoyed that Alayna forgave Hudsn so quickly. I would have loved her to have shown some strength of character and to keep him at arms length for a few months, so that when they finally reunited it was on her terms, not his.
But there is no way I could rate this book any less than 5 stars becaue it seriously blew my mind.
Another stomping read from the very talented Laurelin Paige. I wish I could read Hudson straight away but I’ve a ton of ARC’s lined up already so it’ll have to wait for a couple of weeks.
