He’ll do anything to protect her. Even if it means letting her go.
Tate Jackson made a big mistake. No, a monumental one. He picked the wrong place to introduce his wife, Cassie, to the alluring lifestyle they’d fantasized about.
Instinct told him to get her out of the poor excuse for a sex club—but he didn’t. And she was assaulted because of his carelessness. He’ll do anything to protect her from another traumatic experience, even if it means making the agonizing choice to convince his wife he no longer loves her. Cassie’s not buying it. In fact, Tate is the last person she blames for that horrific night.
She’s willing to give him the space he thinks he needs to get his head straight, but when divorce papers arrive, she realizes she’s out of time. She has twenty-eight days to figure out why Tate is ruining a perfect marriage. Twenty-eight days to figure out what he’s hiding. But when she learns the truth, she has to decide if her heart can take the strain of piecing their love back together.
Warning: Dirty tactics, dirtier sex, ropes, masks, guilty consciences, and love stretched so far, no one escapes unchanged. Not even you, dear reader.
Eden Summers always brings so much heart and emotion to her stories. She helps you to feel what the characters feel. She takes you on an emotional journey of a man and a woman going through the process of divorce. It’s a hard subject, especially when the couple are still in love with each other. One horrible event in the past manifested into so much more. Now, the love they share is threatened – not by an affair – but by someone getting stuck in their own head and making something more than it had to be. Have the tissues at the ready with this one because this story of love, hope, and perseverance will absolutely reach your heart.
What Tate and Cassie had, was nothing short of a fairy tale kind of love. But their happily ever after was just out of reach. One night, one event, changed them both. When something traumatic happens to your loved one, you immediately go inside yourself and wonder how you could have prevented it. You blame yourself. You shoot yourself down over and over again. Tate did just that when Cassie was assaulted. Cassie never blamed him, but that didn’t matter. She was his to protect and he failed. Communication could have saved them, but Tate didn’t want to worry Cassie more. Tate made the mistake of acting before thinking and decided on his own the that divorce was the best option for them. Well, Cassie isn’t having any of it. She will fight for what is hers. She will fight for their love if Tate no longer wants to. She will fight for her happily ever after.
This is where I get excited because I think Cassie was a kick ass female lead in this story. When a romance has a fierce and tenacious heroine, it’s an instant thumbs up from me. In most love stories I read, it’s the hero fighting for their love, but with Summers switching it up and focusing on the female kicking ass and taking names for their love, I just couldn’t keep the grin off of my face, or the HELL YEAH’s that came out of my mouth.
With all that said, I’m really excited about this series. The author did a fantastic job at giving her readers an amazing set of characters who evoke so much emotion out of us. The storylines are amazing, touching on a realness where the readers can connect on a deeper level. Summers never gives us fluff. She dives in, head first, and give us romance junkies exactly what we are looking for – an enjoyable, beautiful, and emotional read with scorching hot sex scenes, sprinkled with a dash of kink. Keep em’ coming Eden! We can’t get enough!
