He would not do this again. He’d spent way too much time feeling that burn in his gut while he’d watched Kincaid fall for Graham.
He was a part of her, of who she was, of who she became. This was Ash.
She had a home. She had her friends. And now, she had her soul mate. Love. It all came back to love.
When he pulled back, he brushed his thumb over her mouth. “This was a brilliant idea. We are geniuses.”
She smiled, and he lowered her to the bed, kissing her again and stretching out over her. She ran her hands through his hair, taking in the sight of him above her. “We are exceptionally smart people.”
He grabbed her behind the knee, opening her body to him. “I’m going to last about six point two seconds, but I promise the next time, I’ll make you proud.”
She lifted a brow. “Already planning the next time, huh?”
He eased himself inside her, stretching her and making her gasp with pleasure. “You’re not leaving this bed until the sun comes up, Breslin. I hope you brought snacks.”
“All this time I thought you were the one who left. You were the friend who broke my heart.” She shook her head. “But that’s not true, is it? I was the one who broke yours.”
She had found her soul mate.
He’d been there all along.
But right now, she felt no motivation to be coy or play games. This was Ash. He’d see right through all that silly playacting. She’d lost the script for how to do this with someone who knew her as well as Ash did. And one sensation overwhelmed her more than any other. Vulnerability.Bravo to Roni Loren for crafting a tender, respectful romance series with four amazing, strong women that showed love and healing could go hand in hand even after the unthinkable happens. I give the author so much credit because, despite the fact that I was a fan of her earlier books, I wasn't sure if I could handle romances tied to a school shooting. I'm sure that in the hands of a lesser author, this might have been disastrous.
They’d all needed healing. They’d all needed hope. But none of them had realized what they needed most of all—each other. Kincaid had spent the last year enjoying every moment in the newest part of her fairy tale, loving and being loved by Ash. But that wasn’t the only love story in her life. Without these women, she never would’ve been able to break out of the cycle she’d been in.Thank you, Ms. Loren, for providing a theme of healing while not glossing over the painful road ahead for survivors.
