This book gave me all the feels. River and Liam are a very interesting couple and their story sucked me in from the beginning.
Everything starts when River dumps her drink on Liam, thinking that he’s his brother Logan. His first reaction is anger and their relationship starts on the wrong foot. They constantly push each other’s buttons and rile each other up. Of course the sexual tension between them is off the charts!
They both keep secrets and both are held back by their pasts. River is sassy, fierce and so hilarious. She has no filter and just say and do whatever she likes. Liam is kind of closed off and gives an angry vibe at first. What make their relationship special is that they bring light in each other’s lives and learn together how to leave their past behind. As an ex-marine, Liam has seen and experienced too much for his age. The past six years have changed him and marked him both physically and mentally. Except from the people he lost in the war, his relationship with his parents is practically non-existent. His father’s behavior seriously made me so mad. I mean how can someone treat his children like that?
I really loved the story. I haven’t read the first book and I really regret it; I’m going to change that soon I hope! This book is truly amazing. It’s about forgiveness for ourselves, leaving the past behind and open our hearts to new experiences and people. River and Liam really came far through the book and became better.
It was a real pleasure reading this book and I can’t wait to see what comes next from the author!
