Hattie Yates has finally met the man of her dreams. Yet years of abuse from her demanding father have left her petrified of disappointment. She’s already failed to reach her goal of becoming a professional ballerina—she can’t handle the terrible consequences of another dream becoming a nightmare. But when a stalker sets their sights on Hattie, there’s only one man she dares to hope can help . . .
Axl Pantera knows Hattie is the only woman for him. Yet despite the attraction burning between them, Hattie refuses to let him in. The former soldier is determined to woo her into letting down her walls. And when danger comes calling, he’s up against more than her wary and bruised heart. Axl will do anything to prove to Hattie that they’re meant to be, but first, he’ll need to keep her safe.
RELEASE DATE: May 25, 2021
Not my first read by the author and you know I have been a fan since the early 2010’s that said this will be really hard for me to write out but I am always honest in my reviews and I feel like by now the more emotion I have into this the worse it gets for me when I am not clicking with a book.
This book THIS SERIES has been a hard one for me to be able to read, maybe because I am so used to the OG writing and the style that this NEW to me style contains my personal preference triggers. This book specifically with the heroine and hero, other men, other woman, I disliked everything about this book but especially the heroine. To me she was tiresome, simple as that I couldn’t click with her, her direction, her style, her words which somehow irritated me to the core. I’m used to KA’s style of heroine’s sometimes in some book being with other characters or vise versa but this book just rubbed me the wrong way. God I can’t believe I am going to say this but it stretched out TOO LONG for me, the feelings and thoughts, too much. I really want to get into details but I also do not want to spoil it. I appreciate NETGALLEY for providing me my ARC but I will stay away from anymore in this series and carefully chose books next time, sadly. I am disappointed because I know someone will read this and say I am over dramatic about it but when you love an author and their previous books as in I’ve re-read them at least 25 times in the years each one, it IS emotional to me to come across a book that shatters you. That said, I do wish the author as always best of luck and the book but this was just not for me. p.s. I did DNF this at 60%.
