This story had tons of twists and turns from the get go. I loved that I was enveloped into the story as soon as I started. It started when two strangers met up by accident ( or by fate ) outside of a bar. The electricity around them has the need to be pulled in. Then it happens, the kiss that shook them to the core. How can two strangers have that kind of passion off the bat? You need to get this book to find out.
Adam was discharged from the Marines. He always lived on the high of the war. He was always good at it. While it seemed everyone else around him dies in combat, or in the past, he continues to come out alive. He lives in the dark almost all his life. His family situation was never good. But behind the dark, this military man has a heart. He is kind and protective to those he loves. That is why he went back home to take care of his mom, even though there are skeletons and pain he still had there. Can Adam ever can forgive himself?
Taylor has done what she has wanted, but her parents always felt she was just wasting her life away. She has a gut feeling her boyfriend is cheating on her, so she calls for quits. After that kiss, Adam is all she can think of. She leaves to a family cabin away from her life and guess what happens. Fate comes knocking on her door and there stands Adam. Can Taylor really be the one to stand up to his anger, pain, and his love all at once. It can be overbearing once you get it all.
This was a great read and could not be happier that there will be more books to come along in the series.
Adam of the Archers,is the first book in a series, was at times a bit intense but you really felt for both Adam and Taylor as they learned about each other. I would give it a solid 3.9 stars. I liked the story line even though at times I really didn't want Taylor to let Henry back into her life especially since she was much more happier with Adam.
Taylor has just returned back from a vacation with her boyfriend, Henry, an assistant professor who is older than she is. He treats her terribly and it affects her self esteem because of his mean comments about her weight, clumsy (who doesn't occasionally trip over their own feet?). But when she receives a text message from Henry, meant for someone who was still in France, not in New York where she was. When finds out that he's cheated, she decides to go to her families cabin where when her water quits working meets Adam when he come to repair it. They hit it off immediately because they've already met at his brother's concert where they kissed.
Adam has returned home to protect his mother because his father, who's due to come home within a week, has physical abused which has damaged her brain. He'll protect her at any cost even though he would much rather not be there when his father returns. Its not really said but apparently, his family is well known to law enforcement in their town and county. But Adam has spent the last eight years in the Marines but when he disagreed with his command after five of his team were killed in a firefight. With a dishonorable discharge on his record he can't re-enlist or find a decent job. When he meets Taylor all bets are off as they feel an instant attraction to each other.
While the plot and story focused on Adam and Taylor, I would have wished for a bit more back story on his family and why Taylor felt she needs to stay with Henry when he's verbally abusive to her. I'd also like to know more about why Adam's family wouldn't leave before the father was released from prison if he abused them all physically. The ending went from the two getting back together to Adam's reinstatement to the Marines three months later. That was the Huh? moment where you had to scratch you head wondering where the middle of the story went. Other than the gaps in the plot, the book was fairly decent, with the love story between Adam and Taylor that made me not skip through the book.
The plot was sound and the story was very easy to read, it's a book you could easily read straight through if you had a few hours to just sit, a good beach book.
If you enjoy a strong male lead and intelligent yet slightly meeker female lead then you will enjoy this book, there are some steamy scenes within this book but nothing taboo.
I received a free copy of this book and chose to review it voluntarily.

This book was ok. There are some minor grammar issues but nothing that detracts from the story.Read more
