“For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction.”
For every choice you make there are rewards,
or there are consequences.
It was my choice to walk away the first time.
And my choice to chase her the second.
But sometimes you don’t get a choice,
and all you get are the consequences.
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
Unless that someone is Logan Matthews.
Because loving him didn’t give me
the strength to walk away.
It didn’t give me
the courage to fight for him.
And when it was over,
all it gave me was a broken heart.
Logan was my favorite character from the first book so I couldn’t wait to get stuck into this book straight away. I think I have a special affinity for the name Logan and I’m also a sucker for that lost, conflicted, bad-boy type with a mask up persona, so it was no surprise that I was going to fall completely in love with him in this book.
Initially, I had a total disconnect with this story as it was told in flashbacks that were confusing and they were pulling me out of the story and distracting me. Thankfully, that didn’t last long and then I became entirely immersed in Amanda and Logan’s love story. It’s the only reason I knocked off half a star.
Amanda fell head over heels in love with Logan and even though they only shared one night when he disappeared from her life it felt like a bigger loss. I could believe that and the fact that she caved relatively easily and let him back into her life.
As we start to discover what is lying underneath the surface, things started to add up and I thought my heart would break for Logan. His early childhood was horrific but he has a great adopted dad now in Alan. Loved Alan’s character.
Of course, just as things are going right for our couple, one night sees everything fall apart. One part of me could understand Logan’s reaction, the other part of me hated that he did the same thing to her again, but I’m totally hooked and it’s on to the next book right now.
