After two years in a coma, August Kinkaid has forgotten the darkness in his past. But his past hasn't forgotten him. His beautiful former fiancée, Everly, remembers every tumultuous moment of their stormy relationship. The sizzling passion. The web of lies. And the terrible secret Everly's been hiding since her last fateful night with August.
Now the truth is out and August remembers everything. As his long-buried memories come flooding back, he begins to understand why Everly would want to move on with her life. Why she would give her heart to another man. And why August should try to forget her once and for all.
But he can't give up on the only woman he's ever loved. Even if he has to reopen old wounds--and face the darkest demons of his past--August will do whatever it takes for a second chance with Everly. He let her slip away once. He's not about to spend the rest of his life remembering Everly when he could be holding her in his arms forever . . .
*** 3 Star Review ***
I was counting down the days for this book to hit my Kindle. I needed every last detail. I needed the rest of this story. I was itching for August and Everly's tale.
The book started out great. The back and forth of each side of the story, present and past had me hooked. Getting into both of their heads, learning of the things they went through years ago gave me more insight...
Then at some point, the book took a turn for me. It slowed down. The past wasn't being given to me like it did in the beginning. If I am being honest, I was getting bored. I needed the book to continue to the end just like it started. I needed to feel for these characters and despise those who threatened their existence. Unfortunately, I didn't get that like I had hoped.
Overall, this is a good book. The downfall for me was the inconsistent writing style. If it had finished the way it started, this could have been closer to a five star read for me.
