26-year old Gabriel Vincent is a badass hero. Or he used to be, anyway. As an ex-Army Ranger, Gabe never thought he needed anyone. But after one horrible night in Afghanistan scars him in a way that he can’t get past, he needs someone who can help him heal…even if he doesn’t realize it.
25-year old Madison Hill doesn’t need anybody…or so she thinks. She grew up watching her parents’ messed-up abusive relationship and she knows there’s no way in hell that she’s ever letting that happen to her.
They don’t know it in the beginning, but Gabriel and Madison will soon develop a weakness: Each other.
But Gabriel’s got a secret, a hidden monster that he’s afraid Maddy could never overcome… And Maddy’s got issues that she’s afraid Gabe will never understand. They quickly realize that they need each other to be whole, but at the same time they know that they’ve got demons to fight.
And the problem with demons is that they never die quietly.
Book Heaux Rating: 5 Freakin Stars!!!!!
Ok, I can’t lie… I was veeeeery skeptical about reading this book. I love, love, love “If You Stay” but I didn’t love Maddy in that book. I thought for sure her story would not be interesting at all because she didn’t seem interesting.
I love this book just as much, if not more than the first book.
Gabe is one seriously hot man! And he’s a freakin Army Ranger so we KNOW he is bad ass! I have visions of him picking me up by his pinky and throwing me over his shoulder!
Yes, Yes… Mr. Gabe is quite yummy!
And his chemistry is Madison (who isn’t as boring as I thought) is palpable.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
