5 Star Review
Maya Jacobs had the love of her life at a very young age, but had withheld certain things about her family which lead her to give Cameron the only answer she thought possible when he asked her to marry him.
Years past and Maya’s life is filled with working hard and alcohol. She uses partying to escape her feelings of regret and heartbreak. Maya struggles daily with what could have been.
Cameron Bridge is a military man. He has spent the past few years using the military as a means to forget his love and loss of Maya. After years on deployment he decides to start all over and start his own business in New York.
Fate has seemed to bring Maya and Jacob lives back together. Both have changed, especially Maya, but the feelings they both have tried to bury seem to resurface. Can the love they once shared blossom and heal the wounds that are hidden deep inside their souls?
I enjoyed this book. Maya and Cameron’s relationship is intense and filled with all sorts of emotions. Their sexual relationship is very steamy. Sometimes I wanted to yell at Maya and tell her to just take him back. On the other hand I hated Cameron’s reaction in the prologue but he soon made up for it. This was a great story that ended with an HEA. I can’t wait to read about Darren and Vanessa.
