All I can say is Ty's comment, "Your nightmare, mama, was my dream." has me in tears and wanting to worship the ground Ty walks on. I still hate he calls women bitches and pussy, and I would wash his mouth out with soap because of it, but I adore him. I can't help but laugh at myself with how fickle I've been toward this hero. Lol.

Once again, I'm crying over Ty's words. His "near-midnight, middle of f#ckin' nowhere heart-to-heart" was powerful, emotional, and wondrous. I love this story.

Alrighty! I will admit that Ty is winning me over! Big time! And Lexie is one fantastic heroine! The "mama" talk is just all kinds of wrong. I keep thinking Ty is talking to his mom not his wife.

Good for you, Lexie! You called Ty on his asshole behavior and told it to him straight. I'm so proud of you.

I've missed Tate, Laurie, and all the fantastic Carnal character. I love reading about them from Lexie's pov. So fun.

I'm keeping faith that Ty can win me over, but boy will he have to work for it. OMG. The guy is so degradingly crude toward women.

Jacqueline This seeming disrespect for women was the reason that even though I liked Ty, he is my least favorite KA hero so far.


Baba  ♥♥♥ Tyler, Marcus, Archer, Dean, Adrian, Dan & Hunter "Your nightmare, mama, was my dream."
This was one of my favorite scenes of the story. Very touching!

Kristen I've ended up loving Ty. He's such a good man, but I really hate his disrespect toward women. It's hard for me to excuse the behavior because I've worked hard to teach my daugher to demand respect from men, and I've worked hard of teaching my three sons to respect women and show that respect. Ty's bitch, pussy and cunt comments go against everything I believe and teach. So it goes to show you how talented a writer KA is that she's made me fall in love with him all things considering!

I think it's my all time favorite scenes of all the KA books I've read so far. Well Max's pov in the epilogue of The Gamble just might rival this scene, but Ty's words were simply heartwrenching, beautiful, and made me cry. Loved this scene! You were right, Baba, I did end up loving Ty.

Melanie I agree Kristen, Ty's vernacular leaves a lot to be desired but I think it's a product of his past... I'm going to guess they don't talk too much about "ladies" in prison. He's one of my fav KA heroes so far and it's a real testament to KA's talent that despite this huge flaw we love him anyways. ;)

Kristen I agree with you, Melanie. I think the disrespect comes from his whole past. He has such a heartbreaking past. I'm actually glad we don't spend a lot of time in KA other heroes heads. Not sure I'd be okay with how some of them view women. After all, Ty mostly thinks the words bitch, pussy, and cunt more than he actually says them out loud. Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I'm glad we don't spend a lot of time in KA's heroes heads. Just saying.

Melanie Good point Kristen! Although, for the most part I enjoyed the novelty of getting regular updates into Ty's POV, I've also really enjoyed her other books with just the heroine's 1st person POV. While I doubt the heroes perspectives were as crude, who knows... only KA does I guess LOL :)


Jacqueline Golden Trail is written entirely from the POV of the hero and while he is a bit crude, he is nowhere near the level of Ty. I think it was just the way Ty was.


Kristen Well, it looks like it's mostly Ty, and it's no surprise he's the way he is. I'm also glad KA gave us his pov. I don't think without it I would have been able to understand him and look past some of his behavior.


Searock I loved getting Ty's POV too.
We don't always get that in a KA.
Loved getting snippets of Mitch as well.


Karla You want to wash his mouth out with soap and I just want to wash HIM with the soap...hehe!!

On a serious note Kristen...you're not fickle about your heroes....bwahahahahahaha!

*talks to self* Get control Karla...*deep breath* you know I love you Kristen and I'm just kidding.

Really, I loved this too, but there are 2 scenes coming up that I "lightly" mentioned in my review that will have you loving this man even more. One happens in the beauty shop and the other on a mountain. The one in the beauty shop stole my breath away from me, and the other one...you'll see when you read it!!


Shawna LOL! Well said, Kristen!


Baba  ♥♥♥ Tyler, Marcus, Archer, Dean, Adrian, Dan & Hunter Oh, yeah, the mountain scene...beautiful. Touching. Awesome.


Brooke The "your nightmare/my dream" comment killed me... I like the alpha males in all KA's stories, but Ty stands out because he actually said he was sorry, meant it, and showed her. Instead of just telling his woman to get over it, and I found that sexier than any of the others.


Searock Karla, between kissing your screen with tongue, straddling your laptop and washing Ty with soap...
you are keeeling meee!!!


Karla I think that when I was in the womb, and my brain was forming...something seriously went wrong!!

OMG! Karla, you have me laughing so hard with your comments (the soap and my fickleness) that my stomach hurts. Hey, you are more than welcome to wash ALL of Ty, just make sure some of that soap makes it to his mouth for me. Lol.

I remember you making a comment about those two scenes in your review. I can't wait to read them. One things for sure, I can't wait for Ty to make me breathless.


Kristen Shawna wrote: "LOL! Well said, Kristen!"

Thanks Shawna. You know, Ty may not be my favorite KA hero but there is no doubt that he and Lexi are my favorite KA couple. They just have an authentic feel about them that the other KA couples (I've read) haven't had.

I love that about him! He is the ONLY KA hero (I've read) that had fully taken responsiblity for his actions and apologizes for his mistakes. He's such an admirable character in so many ways!
