Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he’s back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn’t recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.
Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can’t buy.
Maybe it’s that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.
While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he’s not willing to accept the light that she offers him.
This is one of those great love stories that goes from enemies to friends to lovers relationship and I loved it.
I fell for Brody in the previous book on the rocks, I loved Hunter don’t get me wrong but there was just that dark brooding element about Brody that draws you to him.
You get a lot of Brody’s back story in on the rocks, but Sawyer give you so much more in make it a double.
Your heart aches for Brody as his story unveils, but it’s not just Brody you feel for it his whole family and friends too it’s what hurt pain and anger everyone involved suffered at the hands of selfish people.
Alyssa is a great character and so not what Brody expected from the rich heiress, I loved her character so much.
Alyssa and Brody’s relationship is hot and sexy but also sweet and tender, you feel every nuance of their emotions as you read on through their story.
I loved how this whole story played out, even with Alyssa’s crazy ex thrown in there for a bit of extra action. The scene where Brody shared his secret with his family and friends made me cry such a touching moment.
This book shows what some people will do to protect those that they love, and Brody sure did, he paid the price too.
The ending to this book was priceless with both girls looking in the refrigerator! Brody and Hunter awesome double act, there couldn’t have been a better way to end this book and I cannot wait for more from this series.
