After witnessing Makenna’s journey to find herself again, Callie is reminded of her own struggles with love. No, Wes wasn’t always the easy going guy that he is today. He was moody and unpredictable in the worst of ways, and she was certain to call him out on it every chance she got. Looking back, she’s amazed at how much their lives have changed since they met.
Before tragedy shook them to the very core of their lives. Before her dream career began. And before Wes wasn’t a broody jerk with a closet full of personalities.
Yes, just four years ago, everything was different…
Makenna and Shane are just a couple of lovesick college students, and Callie is doing her best to keep up with the demands of her junior year. Life is boring, and she is totally fine with that. But boring flies right out the window the day Makenna cons Callie into helping with Shane’s brother’s birthday party. She expects a gangly pimple-faced teenager, but Wes is far from it. He is temperamental and opinionated, but he is also incredibly hot and thoroughly enjoys pushing her buttons. And she pushes his right back.
Even though their undeniable attraction draws them to one another, Wes is clear with Callie about one thing. Relationships are off limits. Friendship is all he has to offer, unless of course, Callie is willing to add a few benefits to that. He works hard to keep the reasons for his aversion hidden, but secrets have a way of making themselves known sometimes, no matter how deep you bury them.
Two of those secrets hold the key to unlocking Wes’ fears of the ultimate betrayal. And the other secret has Callie falling even deeper than she ever dreamed.
But she’s unsure of one thing . . . is she enough to save him from himself?
I liked the way this book started, Callie and Wes are already an established couple in Every breath so to get there back story of how there relationship started was so great.
I totally fell in love with Wes throughout this book, how he struggled with relationships and how he over came those struggles. I loved the different sides of Wes, the professional guy in the suit, the tough guy that nobody gets close too, the broken little boy inside of him that misses him mom.
Callie is such a strong funny lovable character and she was just what Wes needed, she didnt take his B S she pushed his self imposed limits and showed Wes what life could be like if he just let himself live it.
Tasha also gave us a peek into Shane’s life, he was the lost love of Makenna’s life in Every Breath but in this book we got to see what Makenna saw in him and the beautiful relationship that Shane and Wes shared as brothers. So Tasha thank you for giving your characters from both of your books so much more depth and giving them so much more meaning.
I didnt think i could love a leading man more than i loved Sawyer, but Wes has stolen his spot for sure. His story is one of healing a broken heart, redemption, fighting for that one person who is the one.
This book was so incredibly amazing. Its one of those stories that even though you know how the story ends, you still read it fast just to see what else happens and your kindle is held in a death grip in parts.
my favorite quote “I know exactly how you feel because it’s there in every kiss.”
Just beautiful, Tasha has written us another knock out book for sure.
