I laid my husband to rest….
Scott was my world and my future. His love for me transcended the dimensions of time and space—having made provisions for me in the event of his death. He was after all in a war zone and the odds were high he may not come home. But now I can’t help but think about the new man in my life – my husband’s father.
Maguire creates a desire deep inside of me I never knew existed. This is more than lust. I keep on asking myself the same question. Have I fallen in love with him because he’s so much like my late husband or because he’s his own man? Only time will tell.
After all, you can’t choose love, it chooses you.
“And this, what we share, will never go away. I’m your beacon. Your home. You can never escape me.”
This book picks up right where Like Father Like Son ended and after that cliffhanger I couldn’t wait to jump right into this one.
The back and forth between Maguire and Holland continues and the both continue to struggle with guilt more than ever, but they still are drawn to one another. I did get a little tired of all their back and forth at times and found myself just yelling at my kindle for them to just be together. They both want it, they both know they are great for each other but they fought their connection so many times.
This one was a lot more emotional for me than the first for so many different reasons. It is a beautifully written forbidden romance that will completely suck you in. Maguire and Holland’s story is beautiful, it is taboo and forbidden, but you can’t choose who you love and I think these two are a perfect example of it. They became each others support system and they healed each other from all the pain and loss they have experienced in such a short amount of time.
This was the perfect ending to Maguire and Holland’s story and was so much more than I could have ever hoped for.
