Life is counted in tiny breaths, ones that measure the length of your existence. Life stole the ability to make those breaths easy when Lily was nine years old. Turned her quiet. Made her curl into herself, and shut out a world that threatened to bury her under its weight.
The end of her world is what brings him back—her biker. His chocolate eyes pierce her soul while his club tempts her with a life that she didn’t know she could ever have. Especially not when she was clutching the tattered remains of her existence, and with a weight bearing down on her which makes her unfit for the role of Old Lady. Asher changes that. He wants to set about repairing it, repairing her and her broken world. The problem is, even his strong shoulders can’t carry the burden of her sorrow.
Asher doesn’t take no for an answer. She may have given him her heart three years ago, but never in her wildest dreams would she imagine she had possessed his for the same amount of time.
Just when it seems like she may be able to ride off into the horizon, the world isn’t quite finished trying to rob her of breath. Of life.
I said it with the last book and I will say it again – with each book, I think that the author’s writing is improving.
There is one thing with this story that niggles at me – Lily and Asher’s respective versions of waiting for each other seem to be very different, but yet easily forgiven. If you read the book, you’ll see what I mean.
That aside, we once again have a pairing which shouldn’t work, but does. She is exceptionally naive in her outlook at times (to my mind at least) whilst he is a gruff, yet surprisingly romantic alpha male. Their interactions feel real and the entire book is a colourful riot of emotion and chemistry. This much I have come to expect from this author.
It doesn’t quite edge out Mia and Bull’s story as my favourite, but it runs them pretty close.
I voluntarily reviewed a reviewer copy of this book.
Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth, then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to stop any time soon.
