Coen Steele has spent the last five years serving his country. Now that he’s back, he’s finally ready to leave behind the chaos of the battlefield and pursue his lifelong dream. What he wasn’t expecting was the feisty sister of one of his battle buddies—who has made it obvious that she wants nothing to do with him—to intrigue him in a way no woman has before.
Reagan Hudson’s life changed in the blink of an eye six years ago when she found out she was pregnant and on her own. Since then, Reagan has vowed never to let another man into her life so that no one can walk out on her, or her son, again. But the more she runs into her brother’s hot and mysterious friend, the more he sparks something in her that she promised herself she wouldn’t feel again.
Can two people with everything to lose allow themselves to finally capture the love they both deserve?
Ive have to say i really got this book, ive been where Reagan has been and know the feeling behind the characters need to put her child first and not wanting to parade a string of guys through her sons life. Reagan is so strong and self sufficient but to a point it was ruining her. She’s close herself off from men in general and has forgotten how to let someone close to her.
You can really connect with he characters.
Coen is the man, he new right from the start if he wanted a relationship with Reagan that she came as a duo and he still went in feet first. He showed Reagan how to open up again and how to share the great things and hard times in life, that it wasnt bad for her to ask for help. The connection he found with Parker was beautiful and the whole scene at the hospital reception really pulled at your heart strings.
At times i felt Reagan was a little to clingy with Parker but being with Coen helped her to get to a healthy place in her life and a better relationship with everyone they all seemed to blossom together.
The tears poured for Saco and the accident omg that poor man my heart ached for him, but the way Keegan and Coen pulled together for him was beautiful.
All in all i loved this emotional realistic read, another hit from the great Molly McAdams.
