➳Second chances at finding your TRUE soulmate are very rare, but in this compelling romance story by Jamie McGuire there is only perfection and true admiration...



➳I'm not the biggest fan of romance stories with military or army heroes that have a broken heart and need mending from their true mate, but this one has changed my mind in every retrospective of wanting more of the story when it comes down to Darby and Trex. Scott "Trex" is an alpha male that provides the inner knowledge of just being with one person. He has been waiting his whole life for the right person to knock him on his feet so he falls hard for her. That's when Darby comes into the pictures, making her a broken down heroine with a regretful past that has landed her in a small town in California, wanting to start fresh, especially for the sake of an unexpected surprise that she found out the day before everything changed.

➳Starting off as someone with a mysterious past, Darby learns to open up about her history to Trex. Making him the ideal partner that she has been missing out on. She is not looking to be with anyone at this stage of her life since she already has way too many occupations going on in her head, but someone who acknowledges her beauty and wittiness is something that she was not expecting either. The care and protective side of Trex is also another contributing factor of him that makes the reader swoon over how ideal he is for Darby's broken heart. Her interactions with him have made her want his touch, his nearness, his presence unlike anything else.



➳Conquering obstacles from Darby's past is something that has brought her and her relationship with Trex to become complicated. To him, he does not care 'cause he just want to protect her in every aspect;
"When you know, you know, and I knew the second I saw Darby Cooke. It was the first-sight nonsense that until that moment I would've said was bullshit. Since that moment, she'd been the center of my universe, and there was so much more to get to know..."

➳Overall, this second chance romance at finding your ideal partner is one that I will highly recommend for those who are seeking an emotional read. There is nothing better than having a romance novel that makes you swoon over every action the male character does. For me, I am loving everything there is about Jamie's writing. For others, this may be a little too angsty, but I am finding it to be the perfect combination of what the characters pace should be. Thank you once again to my favorite, Estelle, for sending me the copy of this beauty. I am looking forward to see what else Jamie has to write in this upcoming series.

" "I have a long, bad history with jerks," she said.
"I can pretend to be one long enough to get your attention."
"You have it."
I swallowed. I'd never met anyone like Darby. She was like crack and Christmas.

Trex...
