“It was the same nightmare I’d been having for years. I had relived that night in my head a million times and woken up in a panicked state, leading to me playing out all the ways I could have made sure it turned out differently.”
Kade Thomas has spent most of his adult life regretting one night. The night that his high school sweetheart was killed in a car accident after they’d had a fight.
Avery Nolan is the sunshine, bright light, care taking girl that you can’t help but love. She sees something in Kade that she can’t give up on. What happens when she finds out that the man she has called Dad had a hand in the night that Kade can’t stop reliving?
“Two men I loved were both blaming themselves for something they’d had no control over, and the guilt of Jenna’s death was tearing them apart.”
A night of passion. A night where Kade finally let’s go and gives in to his desires and allows Avery in ends in a disaster that only Kade can fix.
“It’s time to wake up and stop blaming yourself for things you had no control over,” Harper said. “It’s hard to move past life-changing events. Believe me, I know. But there comes a time when you have to let go of all that anger and blame. The what-ifs will drive you insane, Kade.”
Can Kade let go of the past and fight his demons in order to be the man that Avery deserves? Is Avery strong enough to be there while he fights the battle within himself?
I absolutely love CA Harms books and this book is absolutely no exception. CA Harms writes in such a way that you can’t help but to keep going. Her books flow perfectly and have the perfect combination of swoon worthy romance, alpha caveman toughness, and heat. I highly recommend this book, and the rest in the series! I can’t wait for Jude’s book!!
“Here’s the address,” Easton said as he passed the paper over the top of the table toward me. “Bennie said they live in a ranch-style home at the end of the lane.”
Vermont. They stuck around for a few months after the funeral and then picked up and moved thousands of miles away. Running from the place where they saw their daughter everywhere they looked.
“You sure about this, Kade?” Jett asked as he sat down in the booth next to me.
“Yeah, I am. It’s something I have to do. It’s the last step before I can say good-bye to Jenna,” I explained as I twisted the paper between my fingers. “I’m ready to move on with Avery, and I can’t do that until I do this.”
My stomach was in knots at the idea of facing Jenna’s parents. I had no idea what to expect, but I wanted to close this chapter.
“I’m gonna need something from you, Jett,” I said as I looked up from my hands.
“And what would that be, brother?” he asked.
“Keep an eye on my girl,” I said, and he grinned widely and nodded as Easton chuckled. “Yeah, I know. You never thought you’d see the day, right?”
Jett placed his hand on my shoulder and patted it.
“Nope, I didn’t, but it looks good on ya.” “What does?” I asked.
“Love, infatuation, whatever you wanna call it,” Easton said.
“Pussy-whipped, henpecked, does it matter how you refer to it?” Jude flopped down in the seat next to Easton, chuckling. “Avery has you wrapped around her pinky, and you are sunk to the deepest depths, brother.”
I smiled. “Where the hell did you come from?”
“I’ve been quietly observing this exchange you three were having.” He leaned back, waiting for me argue with what he had said. But he was right. It was pointless. Avery had me tied up tight, and there was no coming back.
