It all began with a choice...
Anna Pierce had, by all accounts, a blessed life. She grew up in a home full of laughter, love, and support. Where the biggest problem she faced (other than how to deal with her family's crazy antics) was deciding her plans for college. Little did she know the ugly path her choice would drag her down.
A choice that left her free-falling...
Fast forward five years. Her life still held that same laughter, love, and support, but it was no longer full. A shadow hung overhead, waiting. Always threatening.
Until he caught her...
Jake Taylor stormed into her life and turned her world upside down. He made her feel things she'd hidden away from; made her face life again. But, most importantly, he helped her find the light.
And gave her happily ever after...
*This book contains adult content (lots of swearing, a little drinking, and some sexy times) and is intended for readers 18 and older*
**This is book one in a series, but each book will be a STANDALONE with a new couple. NO cliffhanger**
To say Anna Pierce has grown up in an overprotective bubble is an understatement. Being the only daughter and growing up in a family with two very protective brothers, and an extended suedo family who gives her own flesh and blood a run for their money she always has someone wanting to come to her rescue and shelter her from the world. But what sometimes appears to be the fairytale life can also sometimes cripple us and cause us to make poor decisions, when Anna is faced with this reality her life is turned upside down and she has to reevaluate everything.
“Eyes I knew from the first time I saw them that I could get lost in them”
It has been 2 years since Anna’s life changing events and in those 2 years she has grown and started to once again become the person she was but at the same time she is playing it safe and closing herself off to the possibility of ever having more with anyone other than her family. A chance encounter at an animal shelter changes everything and proves that sometimes fate is at work no matter how much you try to avoid it.
“If you don’t feel it now and know why, you will, Anna. I promise that.”
Jake is instantly drawn to the beauty walking toward him on the sidewalk and wants more than just a casual hello. Little does he know that he is about to get his wish in more ways than one. Jake is no stranger to pain and suffering, he has dealt with his fair share but somehow managed to come out on top. Now he just has to convince Anna that there are good things just out there waiting to happen and you can’t sit back and not live your life because of all the ugliness in the world.
“Told you, sweetheart. I’d catch you any time, whether you ask or not.”
This is a somewhat insta-love story but also contains the bones of previous skeletons in some parts so there are a few times that it’s not all rainbows and sunshine. It is about two people who have suffered different life altering pains but have worked hard to survive and build a new life in the wake of those crushing times. I loved this couple and watching how they really cared about the bigger picture not just the benefits of the here and now. The supporting characters are also wonderful and I loved them all and can envision this being someone’s actual family, I hope there are spin off books containing some of these people because I’m not ready to let them go. This is a super quick read that leaves you satisfied and thinking about the characters long after you close the book.
