Book Description

Loss, pain, guilt…

Those are the emotions Ben Carpenter feels as the lone survivor of a terrible night, three years before, where fate was so unkind.

On a quest to forget, aware of only one thing—overwhelming misery—he submerses himself into running Fairfax, the pub he and his wife had once planned on opening together, and his side gig as a volunteer firefighter.

Resolved to a life of loneliness, Ben is sideswiped when envy takes hold after he’s asked to stand as Best Man at his best friend’s wedding.

Before he can deal with the idea of opening up to love again, tragedy strikes…just not for Ben this time.

As secrets to his wife’s betrayal come to light, Ben is faced with the reality that an opportunity to heal stares him straight in the face—albeit, in the form of Hannah.

Bonded by their similar losses, Ben begins to wonder.

Is there really such a thing as second chances?

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW AWESOME READ. August 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book for my honest review.

"To love you Benjamin Carpenter it's not something I can just turn on and off like a light switch. It just is." Hannah to Ben

Get the tissues, couple bags of ice, some major ice-cream, your jammies on, feed the family early, put the DO NOT DISTURB READING sign on the front door, cell phone OFF and get into that favorite chair with your comfy blanket.

This is the 4th book in this series and each book gets hotter than the last. Mike and Nicole's story was book 3 and they along with the rest of the clan make awesome appearances in this book. Let's face it ladies these men are SMOKIN HOT.

Did you ever want to be that proverbial fly on the wall? I think we all do at some points in our lives. Now you can be in Ben and Hannah's journey of ever-lasting eternal love.

Ben the widower and Hannah the spitfire are what dreams are made. Ben is the total package of what men today only wish they could be. HOT HOT and HOTTER. Hannah is the girl next-door with a kick once you get her angry watch out. She is also the sweetness that has that loving touch in the kitchen.

When Ben and Hannah come together as one the sex is explosive, earth shattering, thunder and lightning at the same time. You're so gonna need a cold shower after each eruption.

This author brings Ben and Hannah together in one hell of a romance that will leave your knees shaking, your heart fluttering and goose-bumps all over. Ben and Hannah's story is a unique one that doesn't need to be reviewed by anyone it needs to be read by everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant August 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant! Decevito had me in tears before the end of the first chapter. She built this intensely emotional and extremely evocative novel on an intricate storyline that can’t fail to capture your heart. She paints a beautiful picture of both her characters and their surroundings, allowing you to walk through the story with these characters.

I love how well developed the main characters in this novel are. You really get to know them intimately. You also get to know them in the past and present, with a hint at their future. You can see them as they see themselves, how they see each other, and how the world sees them. The supporting cast is also quite unique. They aren’t overly developed in this novel, depending on their stories in previous novels for this. At the same time, they are developed enough that this could be read as a standalone if you so desired.

This novel left me emotionally raw. Decevito tore me apart and put me back together again. It was fantastically refreshing!

Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-deserved five stars. August 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Ms Decevito shakes things up a bit by launching straight into heartbreaking action with this book. Ben's loss of his wife and daughter set the scene for this book - he's still too traumatised by the tragedy to be looking for love or even sympathy, because no one can possibly understand what he's going through.

Except Hannah, another car accident victim who barely survives her own trauma.

After three years of mourning, he's ready to love again and start to heal, but his grieving process gets kicked into overdrive when he finds out some unpleasant truths about what he thought was his perfect marriage. And Hannah's there for that - which helps them both.

This a story about brokenness and healing, forgiveness and letting go...but it's also hot and heavy in the bedroom, because this couple have a lot of time and loneliness to make up for.

And just when you think everything's perfect because that's what this couple deserves after everything they've been through...I won't give you spoilers, but Ms Decevito knows how to throw a spanner in the works.

A well-deserved five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars It has it all!!!! August 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story starts off with heartache, some drama, and then the understanding of it all. Ben is a man still mourning his family three years later. He stops at an accident and that is where his life begins.

Hannah, the woman Ben rescues, is dealing with her own grief. She has a long way to recover from her accident and what it entails. She wasn't expecting Ben.

The author made it so easy to love these characters and their families. The writing did not feel rushed and the events seemed to fit. The time frame never came to the front of my mind. Loved it. Great sex too. Very healthy in that aspect!!

More About the Author

Born and raised in small town Northern Ontario, Canada, Carey Decevito has always had a penchant for reading and writing for as long as she can remember.

More than a decade later, with weeks of sleepless nights, where exhaustion had settled in to her everyday existence, she finally gave and put pen to paper (more like fingers to keyboard). She submitted to the dreams that plagued her insomnia. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Carey Decevito has two published works entitled Hot Communications and Once Written, Twice Shy which is part of a five-book series named The Broken Men Chronicles. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, the outdoors, travelling, and playing tourist in Canada's National Capital region. When life gets crazy, she seeks respite through her writing and reading. If all else fails, she knows there's never a dull moment with her prolific story-teller of a four-year-old daughter, her goofy husband and their two cats who she swears are out to get her.
