“Some boys will keep it, some will break it, and some boys, they just won’t want it. You gotta be careful who you give your heart to…” Slate Declan
First loves, we all got them. Mine is Slate Declan. He was kind, gentle, and caring. Still, he managed to break my heart. So I put miles between us, and eventually, my heart healed.
I haven’t seen Slate in years, but a couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. While I’m visiting my hometown, I’m going to look up Slate Declan. And I plan to break his heart, just as he did mine. I’ll remind him of what he has lost, and then I’ll prove to him that I’ve moved on.
It should be real easy, right?
Well, let me tell you, Slate Declan is not the same guy that I left behind. And there’s another problem. How do you break someone’s heart when they no longer have one?
I adore these brothers and this series. I fell for Jax right away but i was always intrigued with Slate, why he was the way he was, what made him that way and now i know, and damn its a good story.
This is a great second chance love story for Rayna and Slate, which i have to say is not really my favourite romance plot but i really liked how this one went.
I loved how the plot unfolded, with us journeying back in time to when the pair were in school and growing up together, how they grew from friends to lovers and how it broke apart the first time around. These moments really explained some key point in the story.
Slate’s story is heartbreaking, it shows how a certain chain of events can turn someone’s life into such a mess.
I really liked how strong Rayna was when she needed to help Slate, although his recovery was damn fast i would have liked to see a little more depth to that part of the story.
Slates demanding side is so very hot, and i loved the intensity he had when it came to the sex scenes, he and Rayna are scorching together.
The ending really perked my interest into Zeke’s story making me want it like right now please! Gosh i need to know what happened to Zeke on that awful night.
Another great read from Kelly Gendron.
