4.5 Unexpected Stars!
18 March 2017
"Unlike how a scab heals, or a scar fades, the absence of someone you love never disappears."
I am a fan of River Savage's MC books but I was a little unsure about this one, the synopsis sounded ok, but I do not think for a second it actually does the book justice. I was not expecting the book to have anywhere near as much depth as it did or to experience as many feelings as I did.
I honestly thought Hetch was going to be your typical Alpha-hole and whilst he definitely had moments there was so very much more to his character and the reasons why he behaved the way he did. My heart broke for him and the event that he experienced and consumes him so deeply. PTSD is a very real thing experienced by some of our finest officers and Savage portrayed its effects in an honest and heart wrenching way.
Liberty was also a pleasant surprise, I wasn't sure how I was going to react to her character, but I really liked her. She had a huge amount of love, compassion and empathy that she freely gave to everyone including Hetch. She was a lovely mix of strong, sweet, stubborn and kind.
I also really enjoyed the secondary characters, particularly Mitch he was such a sweet kid and a wonderful addition to the story, his character opened up a whole other side of Hetch and I enjoyed their brotherly style relationship as it developed.
This book was definitely an emotional journey that took me on a roller-coaster emotionally but left my heart full and happy at the end.
"I realize I can do anything when I am with you, sweetheart. The darkness seems a little less dark, the pain a little more manageable, and the clutter... the clutter fades and what's left behind is the beauty of the moment. So yes, I know it's soon. But you're mine, and I'm not letting you go ever again."
This was a strong start to what I am sure will be another amazing series from River Savage!
