MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:
Second chance romances are amongst my favorites and the feelings between these two pulled every one of my heartstrings in a journey that brought out a plethora of emotions. I was at times charmed, while frustrated on occasion too, in a romance that spanned years and made me fall even more in love with the hero with each turn of the page.
Adrian Drake has been in love with Paige for over ten years, but has had to hold himself back because of her being his brother Cade's best friend. It's a line he wasn't willing to cross...until he did, which led to the end of everything between them. The heart wants what the heart wants though and he's never stopped wanting her. So when their paths cross again he shows just how determined he is to claim her...as well as keep her safe from a stalker. Adrian's a determined man, a CEO used to barreling his way through work and life, which made for lots of witty banter and exchanges teeming with sexual tension as Paige led him on a merry chase. Despite his occasional overbearing nature I found Adrian a delicious hero, someone not afraid to show his feelings even when he can't speak the words.
Paige Summers is still angry regarding the events that happened over ten years ago, still wants nothing to do with Adrian for breaking her heart and for ruining her friendship with Cade. Even with a stalker hunting her down she wants no help from Adrian and pushes him away at every turn in a journey full of groveling that was almost a bit too much at times.
From the very start though it's clear these two have a connection, and through glimpses from the past to the present, readers get to feel that connection simmering still today. There's a lot of hurt coming from Paige and she makes Adrian pay for his actions from years ago, but it doesn't dissuade him from protecting her. He has no intention of letting her get away again in a journey that kept me glued to the pages, relishing in his protective Alpha instincts, and enjoying the steamy interactions that I wish had been hotter but were no less satisfying!
My rating for this is a B+
