5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review
This book far exceeded what I thought I was expecting from LLV. This book was love. It was heartbreak. I was learning to recover and move forward. Slate was unlike any of the Bear Bottom Guardians we have met before. Slate served time for avenging his fiancee. Time that brought him feeling for a beautiful woman he would see off and on. It also brought him membership and club he never asked for. I loved watching him learn how to adapt in a world that might not be so forgiving. I loved watching his walls break and him become the man and person he was set to be.
Harleigh was unlike anything any heroine I have read before. She’s strong and a little strange, but who wouldn’t be when you’ve faced things no woman should. I love how fierce she is. I love how she isn’t afraid to stand up for herself and those she loves. I love watching her fall. Most of all, I love watching her make Slate fall.
These two were perfect together. Add in one amazing trip to Disney World and you have a match made in heaven. My love for LLV grew with this story. I cannot wait to see what she has for us next.
