Kerry’s 4 Star Review
Summer has experienced the loss of her husband. He was an MMA fighter who was brutally murdered. It’s been two years since Summer witnessed his death and she can’t get passed her grief. It’s difficult for her to find happiness because she feels she will betray her husband. Summer is working on rebuilding herself from that horrific night. Evan is a super hot football player and he has eyes for Summer. He knows everything that she has endured, so he’s been sitting back waiting to make his move and go slow. Once they start spending time together, they find themselves falling in love which scares Summer to death. She doesn’t want to forget her husband. Evan is so caring and understanding, it just melts your heart. Someone has been lurking in the shadows trying to sabotage Evan and Summer’s relationship. They are hell bent on keeping them apart. Will they succeed, or will Evan and Summer’s love survive? This is a second chance romance. I didn’t realize there were others in this series. You don’t need to read them to follow with this one. It’s a short read and I enjoyed it. Halfway through, I felt like it lost something. It became predictable, but as you get to the end, it redeems itself. The ending was a HEA which I was glad to see even though I don’t need one.
