An incredibly emotional story with wonderful characters. Easton just breaks your heart he is so loving and everything you would want your man to be although I admit I often became really frustrated with Dakota. I highly recommend this book.
First up, I’d like to thank Victoria for my advanced copy which I won in an FB competition and to say I willingly leave my honest review for Easton and Dakota😍
The minute I started reading this story, I was sucked in❣️Not only was this story compelling and complex, it was also filled with despair, hope, love and loss. Dakota, Quinn and Roman are siblings and Easton is added to the equation when him and Roman become best friends. Years later he disappears after a major loss to their family and shows up out of the blue, three years later. To say that the coupling between Dakota and Easton is easy is a massive understatement as the complexities of their emotions start to unravel as soon as they know they are in the vicinity of each other.
However, in order to be together they are going to have to fight everything they’ve ever known and sort out the feelings each are experiencing. A not to be missed story and I’m hoping that Victoria will do a story for Roman as I’d like to see who he ends up with😁
Easton wants nothing more for everything to go back to how it was when he meant something to Dakota before she hated him. She wants answers as to why he left then doesn’t want to know, he can’t answer her even if he wanted to. Dakota knew she was keeping up pretending she didn’t want Easton, she craved to touch him, they were having fun, then he changed it. Working with him is harder than she thought, bringing up the memories of when he left. But something shifts between them she knows she doesn’t have the right to touch him. ‘Don’t be sorry for touching me or wanting to touch me. Ever.’ – Easton Things get tense and Dakota runs only for Easton to catch her not happy with what she did. ‘I can’t $ucking lose you. Not ever. Do you understand that?’ – Easton. Keeping her promise to clean his truck, suddenly turns with Easton telling her to get her hatred for him out, she wants him, him being there makes it hard, before he crushes his mouth to hers. Dakota knew it was a mistake it can’t happen again, he wasn’t hers, but Easton says maybe things can be different now, it doesn’t have to be a mistake. Easton knows it wasn’t a mistake he can’t pretend anymore. He’s going to push until she’s tired of pushing him away. What happens when Dakota gets a push she doesn’t see coming and Easton tells the truth why he left years ago.
Holy crap this book Easton and Dakota’s story is not an easy one but it sure is hot as hell loved it even if it hurt my heart 💓. Especially with a certain character I was hoping would get his own story at the end too a unexpected turn that broke my heart . loved this book , haven’t read a new Victoria Ashley book while so it was good to get a new one from her , can’t wait to see what she writes next .
