really liked it


Reagan, Dalton and Striker became best friends when they were younger. This lasted most of their young lives. Reagan came from a broken home and found she could be herself with Dalton and Striker. Striker lost his parents at a young age, went to live with his cousin Dalton, and found a great friendship with Reagan and Dalton.

You never realize what you have lost until it is too late sometimes. This is exactly what happens to Reagan. On her 18th birthday Striker finally tells her how he feels and that he has always been in love with her. Reagan couldn't be happier, since she has loved him since the first time she set eyes on him. Then he just ups and leaves, doesn't say a word to her or Dalton, just disappears.

Dalton has always loved Reagan unconditionally and maybe with Striker gone he finally has his chance. He is there for Reagans downward spiral, helps her heal and move on.

11 years later and happily married to Reagan with 3 boys.... just a knock on the door changed everything.

Reagan has always blamed Striker for her issues with trust. I mean, can you blame her he just disappeared without a word, nothing. How could you not, but 11 years might be pushing it? But when he shows up on her doorstep everything comes back to her. The secret she kept, her feelings it all comes rushing back. It took her a while to get herself back together with Dalton's help. They married at 18 and have been together since.

Dalton has his own secrets too. Like the fact Striker has been back for awhile and he has been having boys weekends with Striker and the boys, the real reason he has to go out of town for a month or so, and the real reason he called Striker to come and stay in his home while he is away.

Striker and Reagan eventually do work through some of their issues...why she can't seem to be around him comfortably, if she is still mad at him after all these years, and she spills her deepest secret. Striker at first can understand, but the more the secrets come out the less he understands. He gets mad himself and they have a blow out where everything comes out in the open.

I have to give Dalton credit... I think he spent a while thinking his plan through. His wife and boys will be safe while he is away, and this will give Reagan and Striker the time for closure with the past. When he comes back though, so so so sad. Reagan knows he was keeping something from her the entire time and when he tells her what. I cried a little.

I am looking forward to the next book, because if that is really how you decided to end this, :(
