This story is about finding forgiveness and not letting your past dictate your future. It’s about family and not just the kind who share bloodlines. This story will take you on an intense journey full of action and drama and will show you the lengths people will go to in the name of love.
Chaise has spent a number of years dealing with the insecurities left in the wake of her father’s controlling ways. She trusts almost no one and that presents a problem when she discovers information that threatens her safety and possibly her life. When she seeks out the one person she can trust, without question, she comes face to face with Colton “Bull” Lanier.
Bull has never fully recovered from his father leaving him and his mother behind when he was just a boy. That is the kind of hurt that runs deep and causes you to question the intentions of every person you encounter. Bull considers himself blessed to have found family in his brother in arms. This family is the kind you trust with your life and protect at all costs.
Chaise and Bull begin their turbulent journey under extreme circumstances. Danger surrounds them and they have no choice but to trust each other. But trust is earned and keeping secrets makes it hard to fully trust another person. Chaise and Bull have some rather large obstacles standing in their way and they must decide if the ties they share are strong enough to endure whatever lies ahead.
I adored Bull in all his raging glory. He was rough around the edges with a heart of gold. His fierce need to protect Chaise and those he considered family is the epitome of loyal and everyone deserves at least one “Bull” in their life. Chaise was young and sometimes too naïve for her own good. I admired the courage and strength she demonstrated when she faced imminent danger multiple times.
There were some sweet moments, some steamy moments and some seriously intense moments in this story. I enjoy stories with secrets that keep you guessing what is coming next and A.D. Justice knows how to deliver a great story. There were a few slow moments, but overall the story kept me anxiously turning the pages, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
