ABOUT THE AUTHOR
WEBSITE | FACEBOOK | HARLOE'S HOTTIES |
Wow, I was shocked to find out this was from a debut author! For this being her first book, you would never tell and it hooks you from the beginning to end. You will be shattered right along with Xander and your emotions will be tested when it comes to the feels you experience between Xander and Willow. This is not your typical BF to lover’s book; it touches on some sensitive topics such as battling demons when you return from the war zone. It is truly heartbreaking and this book may help others who have been in this situation when it comes to a relationship and coming home.
We get a dark, emotional and HAWT as heck passion read with this one. Willow and Xander who are so different even from childhood bonded as kids and have been BF since. There is a secret that is kept between both and even you wonder if it will go beyond the explosion or if it was a one time hard hit. Haha you must read the book to get this one. They are separated by his departure and learning of his return, Willow knows that she must go to him. Hold onto your heart when you read this cause, not only do you feel for his mom, you feel the hurt and battle scars that Xander is fighting as well as what Willow is experiencing during this time. Willow is his exotic tree and healer! I had a blond moment during the tattoo reveal cause I was just like Willow and couldn’t figure it out, hello it’s staring at our faces. Duh, but that is so sweet.
I loved the dual POV cause we got to share their feelings and see the suffering that others struggle with and how it impacts both the veteran and the family/friends. I wanted to hug him at times, well except during that one time and all I could think was OK while that was HAWT, but the smell had to be strong. Not saying what cause my gag reflex was kicking in just reading it. This story is powerful, emotional and healing and leaves you feeling happy at the end. You can no go eat some cheese and rice now too! Haha
I cannot wait to read more from the author and hopefully we can see more of Xander and Willow down the road. You will truly be redefined after reading this. My only suggestion is that you have nothing planned as you will want to devour in one sitting.
