What Marissa Johnson never expected when she came to Illinois to tour her brother’s Alma mater was meet the man who would haunt her dreams.
Once introduced, she knew she would do anything to stay close to him and hope for a chance.
Mike Harrison never expected to fall for his old college friends little sister. Defending his heavy weight title and having any woman he wanted wasn’t enough to keep him away any longer.
Two years came and went while neither of them acted on their wants or desires. All of that changes when someone’s grief brings the two together into a situation they can’t ignore any longer.
But what happens when insecurity, jealousy, and lack of faith come into play? Can these two overcome the obstacles thrown in their path or will it all come crashing down around them?
So I made sure I had all my supplies with me for this one, I knew it was going to be tough reading. If the previous two books are anything to go by, I was right to have the tissues on standby. One thing I have learned from Barbara’s writing – she doesn’t do simple. The twists and turns and complex yet flawed characters are wonderfully woven together.
Marissa is frustrating. She wants and has wanted to be with Mike for years. Now that she has his attention, she runs. Mike is an MMA fighter – enough said – I was sold on the book from that alone! LOL. I love his push and pull with Marissa. He’s attracted but can’t breach the code of bros when it comes to her so he forgoes his happiness to keep his friend happy.
This is another emotional journey for the characters and I loved the heartstopping fight.
As much as the characters did things that annoyed me, the way these stories started and finished make them wonderful. All is not what it seems and it’s great to see the cross over characters from the previous books reappearing.
