I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was a quick read that I found to touch on the subject of abuse, but shows the readers how a powerful woman can rise above it and find happiness and love when she starts over. Lucy Simmons has been dealing with abuse from her boyfriend for three years. When she is finally able to escape she doesn't look back. Now working in a department store, she catches the eye of Knox Taylor. And Knox is willing to fight for Lucy no matter who is coming up from her past.
"You know, what? You are the most infuriating woman I have ever met. I honestly don't know whether to forget about your or kiss you." -Knox Taylor
This book was a good HEA read. I felt some parts it was a little slow. The time period of the book was a lot shorter, so I think that's why the book overall was a quick one. But Knoxt is hot as sin and he and Lucy are really good for each other.
"Keep looking at my mouth and you'll be feeling it on yours, Angel." -Knox Taylor
Overall, I'm giving this book 4 STARS out of 5 STARS for the insanely gorgeous chemistry between our hero and heroine. The both worked for their FOREVER and in my opinion they completely deserved it. I'm excited to see what this author comes out with next.
