I was done with love.
When I opened my heart, it was for the men I couldn’t have.
The unattainable ones.
The ones who would hurt me.
A vicious cycle I couldn’t seem to stop.
But I had a new resolve.
Focus on my career.
And then I met him.
A wounded widower with two young kids.
He was exactly everything I was avoiding.
So I did my best to stay away.
But then he kissed me.
And I fell.
Hard for a man who would never be mine…
A man who was broken beyond repair.
A man who would break me.
My Review: 4 stars
Jace and Sydney have a story that is very relatable. It’s about love and loss and finding yourself again.
Jace is a single dad who lost his wife a year ago. Since then, he has thrown himself into his work. The more he works, the less he thinks about his loss.
Sydney is helping her best friend plan her wedding. She knows that she is going to have to deal with Jace, and from what she has heard he is not pleasant. But she is willing to do whatever she needs to do to make this wedding amazing.
There is an instant connection between Jace and Sydney, no matter how much both of them try and deny it. One thing leads to another and just when Sydney thinks the evening is going to end amazingly with her and Jace, he changes his mind.
But it doesn’t end there. Life brings them back together and then they start bring themselves together. The problem is Jace doesn’t know what he wants and Sydney doesn’t like being dragged around.
But what happens when everything changes? What happens when Jace can’t handle a situation? Will he lose everything? Is it too late?
I can honestly say that for like the first 60% of this book, I didn’t like Jace. But I started to love him towards the end of the book.
Now to go back and read his brothers book.
Good job Ava!
