Falling in love seemed to heal them both. Until their haunting pasts threatens to destroy…
Robbie Hayes’s life changed the day a horrific accident shook his foundation. He’s resolved to regain control. While the physical wounds have healed, the emotional scars remain.
Will he ever be able to outrun the memories? Can she be his salvation?
Ember Walker’s life hasn’t been easy. Fleeing from a world filled with hatred gives her a fresh start, one she desperately craved. Now, she’s stronger, but guilt and insecurities still plague her.
Will she ever be able to outrun her memories? Can he be her salvation?
My eyes flutter as soft fingertips drag across my lower back. The faint sound of thumping pounds against my ear as I open my eyes, feeling disoriented. The first thing I see are the hard lines of Robbie’s stomach as his chest rises and falls.
My face buries into the warmth of his embrace and he starts chuckling.
“Is it possible to wake you?” he rumbles.
“Guess so, but I was having the most wonderful dreams.”
“So was I, but mine weren’t while sleeping. Mine are right here in the flesh, laid out on top of me.
When I lift my head to his, my heart melts. The look of devotion on his face is so strong it threatens to crush me.
“How long have I been asleep?”
“About an hour. When I came out of the bathroom, you were passed out.”
“Why aren’t you asleep?”
“Because I have an incredibly sexy, naked woman lying in my arms. It would be a shame to miss this.”
“I’ve slept with you naked before.” Blush creeps up my cheeks.
“Think we both know this is different.”
Emotions bubble inside of me, and I curl into him.
“You mean something special to me, Ember. More than special. I want you to know that.”
Whitney’s 4.5 Star Review
Robbie, Robbie, Robbie… I’m still a ‘Finnatic’ but I dare anyone to read this book and not fall head over heels for Robbie.
If you’ve followed this series, you got a small set up for his relationship with Ember. Salvation takes us to the beginning of their story (when they met leading up to Declan and Raven’s wedding). So though there is slight overlap with Surviving (book two) this is totally brand new material since the main characters are different.
Declan and Raven are there but are in the background. And my sweet Finn gets his share of face time in this book as well. I think this crew of characters is my favorite thing about this series. Every guy is amazing, every girl is fun. These are people you’d want to be friends with in real life.
Ahren gives us a fresh story but follows a pattern I have become familiar with… there will always be drama and maybe a tad bit of danger/suspense!
No spoilers here but if you’ve enjoyed Surrenduring and Surviving, you won’t want to miss this book. Robbie is the ultimate BBF… he’s got a touch of alpha with his protective side and his dirty mouth is a nice balance to his romantic side.
Though you could read this as a stand alone, it will make a lot more sense if you read the series in order. I can’t wait for the next book which I believe will be Finn’s story!
Ahren spent her formative years living in an active volcano. There her family made collectible lava art. She studied rock collecting at the Sorbonne in France. There she met the love of her life-her pet pig Sybil. She returned to the states and started writing. She is happily married to a guy who used to live under a bridge and she met while pole-dancing. They have one amazing daughter.
Now, meet the real me. I grew up in the south and consider myself a true “Southerner”. Most of the special locations mentioned in my books are reflections of my favorite places. Living on the Florida coast, my family spends a lot time at the beach which is where I usually can be found with a book in my hand. I started writing my Surrender Series, in the spring of 2013 and have received incredible support from the Indie community. Throughout this year, I have been privileged to meet some amazing people that I am thankful to have in my life.
