Madison Waters knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life. She was already working for one of the most prestigious law firms in Boston as a research assistant, and in a few short months, she would finally graduate from Harvard and collect her law degree. Everything Madison had worked so hard for, was well within her reach.
But when Madison has to take an unexpected trip back home, she’s blindsided by the one thing she’d never planned on.
Desperate to escape his wicked past, Holden Brooks moved to Madison’s hometown five years ago. It was a struggle at first, but he eventually overcame the demons that nearly destroyed him back in Texas. Holden is in a good place in his life and love is the very last thing on his mind.
Everything changes the moment their two paths collide and they soon find out, fate has a plan of its own.
You never know when love will come along and change…everything.
I wanted to like this book…. I wanted to love it. I just didn’t.
The relationship between Holden and Maddie wasn’t given enough time to develop… they fell in love so fast… it was not believable at all. Barrett, Maddie’s boss, wasn’t developed enough either that you would care about him.
Maddie works for a law firm and thinks she is in love with her boss when a sudden call from her mother sends her rushing home where she meets Holden. Holden is damaged but falls for Maddie quickly and she helps him with his struggles.
Archer is his cousin and boss. Katy is Maddie’s best friend. I almost feel that Archer was more developed than Holden. I cared more about him and Katy than I did Maddie.
Holden seems to be a good guy, carrying around a lot of demons but I don’t know. I just don’t think the author spent enough time developing the characters and went right into the love
scenes and the sex for this to be a good book.
I hope that we get a chance to peek in on Holden and Maddie during Katy and Archer’s book and hopefully get a better glimpse of their lives and are able to care about them more as characters.
