Tobias knows that women are a lot of trouble, and one in particular is more trouble than most. Yet even with the knowledge that she’s a pain in the ass, he doesn’t stop himself from doing the one thing he knows that he shouldn’t do—fall in love with her.
It’s supposed to be simple. Get in, get the girl, and get out.
What Tobias isn’t supposed to do is fall for the woman he’s supposed to rescue. But he can’t help being intrigued–and amused–by the defiance rolling off Audrey every time he so much as speaks to her. This fascination only intensifies with every single word from her delectable mouth.
It’s been six years since her assault, yet it feels like it happened just yesterday. Audrey’s sick and tired of feeling so useless. She’s had enough of being scared, she doesn’t want to be all alone for the rest of her life. All of that boils down to a woman who’s had enough of not doing anything to reclaim her life.
She’s at a loss as to how to move on, and every attempt she makes results in failure. Just when she’s ready to quit, a sexy biker is there to push her out of her comfort zone.
Under Tobias’ patient guidance, Audrey slowly makes her way back to herself. She lands a job that she adores, and she thinks she’s finally found her place in this world. Most surprisingly, though, she finds herself falling in love with a man that honestly scares her to death.
Just when she vows to take that final step that’ll put her past in her past forever, the life she wants to live is yanked away. Leaving her with nothing to pick up the pieces.
I loved Tobias and Audrey. Their story is a bit different than the some of the others, but don’t worry, you won’t be disappointed.
Tobias has such a kind heart. He didn’t want to have feeling for Audrey because she is Tunnel’s sister and because she has been through terrible things in her past, but he does. He only wants what is best for her and doesn’t want to push her too far into a relationship but as the story continues, his feelings grow. Will she feel that same way? Will he be to scared to ever try anything with her?
Audrey is extremely strong. After what she went though, she is doing remarkable, even if she is still very nervous around men, but that is understandable. After finally having Tunnel back in her life, Audrey feels like life is finally going good again.
When Tobias comes into her life, she feels comfortable around a man for the first time in forever, and that scares her. She doesn’t want to let her guard down but she knows that Tobias won’t hurt her. Will she be able to let him in or will she end up pushing him away?
One thing I love about Lani’s books is that old characters make appearances. This just makes my heart happy.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It’s a bit different than some of the others but I think the story is deeper. I think it can connect to the readers in a different way than the other books did.
