Audrey Kelly finds her way back home to Crystal Valley with her bruised pride and a shattered dangerous past mocking her rear view mirror. What she didn’t expect was to be face-to-face with Adam Parker, resident bad boy, sexy Navy SEAL and one of the reasons that Audrey ran all those years ago.
Audrey was the last person Adam had ever expected to see back in Crystal Valley. Over a decade ago, they shared a sizzling night together before he received the worst news of his life and he hasn’t seen her since…until she’d moved back unexpectedly. She was no longer the sweet innocent girl he once remembered, but Adam has his own problems without having to deal with Audrey’s ice princess recital, no matter how tempting the auburn haired seductress may be.
Sparks begin to ignite between them but can they accept Audrey’s past when it threatens to engage them in a dangerous twist? Can they save each other from themselves and stop running once and for all?
I give this book 5 hearts
Ok, so yes this is a military romance, I’ve read quite a few and after a while they start to seem very similar. However what I’ve come to notice is that it’s not necessarily the storyline that makes the story but the depth of the characters. Many books have very similar plots but they are not all written equally this is one of those stand out books in a vast sea of military romances.
Beautiful, talented photographer Audrey is back home with her grandfather in the small town where she grew up, after an awful divorce she’s keeping secret has made her want to get as far from NYC as possible. She’s not the same woman she was when she left and she feels broken as if she can never trust again. Some events will forever change a person it’s how we move on that matters, and Audrey just isn’t sure she knows how.
When she runs into her childhood crush and the man she gave her virginity to Adam, sparks fly. Audrey is still angry over a misconstrued night in high school, but she can’t deny he grew up to be one hell of a man.
Former Navy seal Adam is back home working as a contractor and occasionally helping out the local police. He has never been one to think of settling down particularly with his constant nightmares but when he sees Audrey back in town he can’t help but see how amazing she is. He never stopped thinking about her but now she’s a changed woman and married.
As they get to know each other again the chemistry is undeniable, but is it enough to heal these two wounded souls. Audrey and Adam both have pasts that have left permanent marks, and danger is lurking. Can try trust each other enough to give their hearts away?
I adore these two characters all their imperfections made them feel more human. Audrey is strong and courageous she just needs someone to let her know that, and Adam is not responsible for everything that happens no one person is.
Perfect for any romance lover with a wonderful HEA.
