He yelled those words at the love of his life twelve years ago, and to this day, Reed Hail regrets them. He’s always been the type of person to speak before he thinks, and apologies have never come easy.
It’s been over a decade since she was his, and he stubbornly thinks that he can keep on living without her.
He couldn’t be more wrong.
The last thing he needs is her vagina anywhere near his exam table. But nobody ever asks him what he wants.
Maybe he should’ve gone into the auto-recovery business after all.
I hate you.
Krisney Shaw would take those words back in a heartbeat if she could. In fact, she would take back everything.
Never meeting him would be the perfect place to start. The memory of Reed Hail haunts her—morning, noon, and night. Then, to add insult to injury, she has to see him being happy while she’s breaking a little more inside every single day.
Reed Hail is her worst nightmare because she’s constantly reminded of exactly what she’s missing—the other half of her soul.
Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, she’s sees his sexy, bearded face over the top of her paper gown, and she’s lost all over again.
Don’t ever let me go.
Both Reed and Krisney are determined to avoid each other. They do a great job of it, too…not.
One ill-timed gynecological exam changes everything. One single second in time shows Reed what he’s missing—literally and figuratively—and suddenly he’s back at square one.
The only problem with being back at square one? He won’t be able to leave her a second time.
Especially since the first time around he didn’t have a child with her to consider.
My Review: 4 1/2 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Krisney and Reed have such a traumatic past, that no-one would ever think that they could come back together or even talk to each other again.
You meet Krisney in a previous book but you don’t learn anything about her.
Once you start to learn about Krinsey and her past, your heart breaks for her. She has been through so much but she never gives up.
Krisney and Reed were high school sweethearts but broke up when some terrible happened. (I can’t give away what happened now, that would give to much of the story away)
Krisney joins the military to get away. What she didn’t realize was that when she needed her yearly check up, that her military doctor would be Reed. Like how crazy is that!!!
One thing leads to another and a bit later, Krisney ends up pregnant. What is even better? Reed ends up being her doctor again. (She just has terrible, or amazing, luck)
But it is not all sunshine and roses for Krisney and Reed now. They have a lot of history between them and it’s not all good.
Krisney is worried about how Reed’s family would feel seeing her again.
How can they make it work when both families want nothing to do with each other?
What happens when their relationship literally comes down to life or death?
You have to read to find out!!
Lani, you always know how to keep my attention. There were times in this book that I wanted to throw the book across the room but I didn’t because I had to know what was going to happen next. I cried, I laughed, and I cried some more.
Amazing story! Amazing scenes (especially the dirty ones)!! Just overall an amazing read!!
Plus I LOVED that I got to see Big Papa in this book. Just a small vision into his upcoming book.

About the Author:
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
Seems interesting! Not my cup of tea, but you never know!
I’m interested, but I’m confused about the timeline of events. How many years was she in the military before running into Reed again? It sounds like she enlisted fresh out of high school. I think I have to read the book to find out.
The timeline of events takes place over years. It starts when they are 16 and they are in their upper 20’s when they end up running into each other again
Sounds like a good read! sexy cover too!
This one sounds delish!
This sounds right up my street if I’m in the mood for a romance.
Great review! May need to add to my TBR!
Ha! This sounds like something I’d love!! All that irony. I’m gonna add this to my TBR.
Okay, this is one I probably would have put down because of the cover…just not doing anything for me. But then I read the synopsis and oh my wow! It sounds perfect! I am going to get my hands on it as soon as I can 🙂 Great review, btw!
Sounds intriguing and I’m glad that you liked it. Not one for me though
