Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.
She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.
Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.
Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.
He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.
Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.
I’m a damn fool guys! A damn fool! You wanna know why? Because this is my very first read from Kandi Steiner, and I’m kicking myself for not starting her books sooner. I mean, where has this author been all my life and how can I keep her? This woman…this woman reaches into your chest, caresses your heart, and carefully mends you back together, all in the span of a couple hundred pages. At first, I had no words. I had to decompress and figure out how I can fit the time in to read it all over again. Now, I have SO MANY WORDS and not enough time to share them with all of you. Just do me a favor, despite all of my ramblings about this book, you only should have one takeaway from this book…It’s FREAKING MAGIC! Yes, the book cover is STUNNING. Yes, the synopsis will suck you in, but it’s the story, the absolute BEAUTIFUL and RIVETING love story that will make you a true fan for life!
“…this – our love – I will fight for it, Wren. Until I have no breath left to fight.”
See, right there! That quote was just EVERYTHING! These characters were just EVERYTHING! Wren and Anderson’s story BLEW ME AWAY on every possible level! Two people, completely lost, find solace and companionship in one another. They find respect, friendship, and passion in each other’s hearts. Time is not on their side. Location is not on their side. But love…love IS on their side. This book made me SO HAPPY guys! SO SO HAPPY! I can’t even keep it all in! You can’t help but get totally lost in the beautiful uniqueness of this heartwarming romance. If I could turn back time and experience this feeling all over again, I definitely would! You don’t know what you’re missing if you haven’t dived into a Kandi Steiner romance. Once I finished Revelry, I knew I had to get my hands on her complete backlist, because I’ve completely fallen in LOVE with Ms. Steiner’s words.
