Goodreads Summary:


He was lost and alone. Then he found her.
And the future seemed more fragile than ever.


As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.


My Swoon:

"My lips closed over hers, more carefully than I'd ever kissed anyone.  I was terrified to startle her.  Afraid she would retreat and never trust me with this chance again.  Afraid she would equate me with that asshole who hurt her--who would have hurt her so much more.  I shoved him from my mind as though I'd pushed him from a cliff.  He was not a part of this.  I wouldn't let him in.  I touched my tongue along the seam of her lips--a quiet inquiry and a promise to withdraw if required.  But she opened her mouth, and my blood ignited, rolling below my tattoos like tiny ribbons of fire.  Her tongue touched mine--a connection I hadn't imagined would be allowed, and one that incited an ache for more.  I swept my tongue across hers and she sighed and trembled beneath me."  (Pg. 178)

  3. I really loved Easy, but wasn't sure about this one! Is it just a retelling from Lucas's POV or is it something totally different? I loved the swoon though! Lucas is one sexy guy!

    1. Thanks! It is not just a retelling. We get a prequel where we learn about Lucas' life from the age of 13 and up. Everything he goes through is heartbreaking, and shapes him to become the amazing person that he is. Plus, we get his POV from everything he was thinking and feeling about Jaqueline before they ever "met." Read it!! You will love it!!!!
