Cade Walker is like no man I’ve ever met before. He’s cynical, brooding, mysterious and, most of all, damaged. He’s a man who declares he’s broken, and one who detests the two very things I live for most: God and love. Yet, I’ve still fallen completely in love with him because I also see the good, something that no one else ever has. I see a man who is strong, silent, honorable and beautiful. He’s a man who is now scarred
just as badly on the outside of his body as he is on the inside, all because of
me. One who endured severe torture in order to save me from what would be the worst thing I will ever experience in my entire life. He is a man I call my dark angel, one who will have my heart until the end of time, even if I
can never have his.
At fifteen years old I lost the only person that ever mattered to me, and the day I lost my little sister in the most vile way was the exact moment I stopped living and only existed. That’s until ten years later, when I walked into an open field in Iraq to hear the most incredible voice I would ever hear in my life. One that rooted me to my spot, and ended up belonging to the most beautiful woman in the world. The only woman to ever make me feel something again, something that I thought was dead inside of me. And no matter how badly I wanted to keep her, I knew I couldn’t. Not with what I have lurking inside of me. It’s something I’ve always kept hidden. That is, until the day I unleashed it on the people who dared to hurt her. It was the one thing that gave me the strength to save us, but it was also the one thing that would remind me of why I could never have her.
Now two years later, the one girl I never thought I would ever see again, the one I have spent my days and nights craving like an addict, walks back into my life unexpectedly, giving us both the shock of our lives. And when the time comes that she needs me again, I no longer resist. Before I know it, I’m pulled into a life I thought I could never have, one that scares the shit out of me but it’s one I’m realizing I want. There is just one problem. One very big problem… She lives for the very thing I loathe, and the one thing that killed my sister… God.

“You can’t break something that’s already broken”
Cade Walker believes he is a broken man. He believes he does not deserve love because of the evil that lurks within him. He believes God is evil and he is not capable of loving.
“I pull her closer to me, thinking if I hold her tighter she won’t be able to slip away from me, but I was wrong. That day, before the ambulance had even arrived, my sister died in my arms. And the moment she took her last breath was the exact moment ice froze over my heart. It was the same day I stopped living and only existed.”
Faith Williams is your all American girl next door. She is pure and sweet and lives life always trying to see the good in everything. She believes in God and has an over abundance of love in her heart.
“All I know is, since the moment you walked away from me tonight I feel sick. Like I’ve lost something I never had. I know it sounds crazy and I know you’re not the kind of guy who does the whole girlfriend thing. But I also know if I let you go without knowing what it’s like to feel you inside of me then I will regret it for the rest of my life.”
I absolutely loved this book… It is not your typical girl meets boy, girl falls in love, they have amazing sex and live happily ever after book. There is a lot of story here and it is all written in so perfectly. The issues involved in this book are really hard on the heart, but KC Lynn takes us through it with kid gloves and provides us with one hell of an emotional read. I know I cried and laughed throughout, but I wouldn’t have missed it.
Of course our boys Jaxson and Sawyer make their respective appearances, thank god, I really missed Sexy Sawyer and Jaxson. If you’ve read the first two books you how well KC Lynn can have you truly laughing out loud at some points with these characters and their significant others…. but at the same time she makes you appreciate the love and respect these guys have for each and their families.. She also introduces us to some new characters along the way, which are such a great addition to the group, I can’t even begin to tell you how much you are going to love them.
I have been waiting for this book since I first read Fighting Temptation and it was truly worth the wait. This series is an absolute must read.
