<b>HERO~</b> Hendrix was a complex guy. We meet him when be is 8 years old, living with his abusive alcoholic father. When the new family moves in next door his entire life changes. Then we see a Hendrix after a 6 year separation. He is changed. Breaking a promise to never drink, he too is fighting demons. Still being in love with Maddie and a run in with her dad sets him on the path back to her. He had such sweet, loving moments and then moments he was a total dick, lashing out because of his emotional pain...
<b>HEROINE~</b> Maddie was sweet and totally devoted to Hendrix. She didn't see his home life, she loved him for him. She was a lost soul after Hendrix broke her heart. The stuff she endured was heartbreaking.
<b>SEXUAL HISTORY~</b> They were each other's first and only.
<b>OM DRAMA ~</b> no OM drama
<b>OW DRAMA~</b> While the OW drama wasn't extreme, it also felt very much like drama for the sake of drama. Two women hit on him in a bar - he completely shuts them down. Then another girl Sadie, that he was friends with- never kissed her or had sex with her- wanted to be more than friends and he again shot her down. She made two appearances and was again just unnecessary to the story. What I didn't like was the girl he was friends with had been one of the girls who was mean to Maddie in school. Just seemed kind of dirty of him to hang out, even as friends with her. Just my opinion.
<b>STEAM</b> Not a lot of steam - definitely needed more
<b>VIOLENCE</b> none of a sexual nature
<b>SECONDARY CHARACTERS</B> a few good secondary characters who I believe have stories coming too....
<b>SAFETY</b> Neither were with others during the separation. I know heroine never kissed anyone else and Hendrix said Maddie was the "only woman he had ever been inside" so that left it open to speculation for me.
<b>ENDING~ </b> The epilogue was ok, but I expected so much more. I NEED a look into their future..more than a few months ahead.
Hendrix Cole - I felt so bad for the boy. He comes from a home with no mom, not why it's sad because a father can raise a child without the mother if he has to. He came from a home where he was abused by his alcoholic father. He was hell-bent on getting big enough to lay into his pop and doing to him what his pop has been doing to him for years. Then they got new neighbors. The new fire captain at Pop's fire station. That new neighbor had a child close to Hendrix's age. He was hoping for the new neighbors to have a boy so he would have a playmate to play with in the neighborhood.
Maddie Davis - She was a year younger than Hendrix and just moved into the neighborhood. Her only friend to be Hendrix. She got picked on in school. Hendrix stuck up for her like he was her protector. In fact, she fell in love with that day when he broke the nose of the boy who stole her lunch money.
When Maddie turned 18 Hendrix asked her to marry him the day she went off to college. Neither of them knew of the little secret she carried with her on when she left. Not long after Hendrix found himself in a bind that left him breaking Maddie's heart along with his. He couldn't tell her the reason why he had to lie to her or tell her why he had to break both their hearts. At that point, they still didn't know the little secret she carried with her. It wasn't until a few days or so after that she found out. She left college and determined to do what she had to since she couldn't get Hendrix to answer his phone or check his emails from her. Soon enough her world would fall apart even more and no one knew why except Hope. Hope had helped her.
6 years later, Hendrix goes looking for Maddie again. The thing that kept him from his girl long gone. He actually had been looking for her for years but never had any success in finding her. He was on temporary transfer to Pop's station where Pop was now captain and had been sober for 6 years. Since the day he realized he ruined his only child's future. They were called out on a call to the women's shelter where low-and-behold Maddie worked. In fact, the call was for Maddie. She had been attacked by an angry abusive husband trying to get his wife and kids back.
Can Maddie and Hendrix get over the past and move on and have the love they shared years ago?
Only one way to find out. You have to read the book yourself. You will thank me for it.
I adored this book. I cried. Heck, I couldn't believe that Hendrix broke her heart and still loved. But he did have a good reason. A reason to keep her safe. Then to spend 6 years looking for his "pretty girl". I love his pet name for her. This story was beautifully sad and happy and all of the above. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends that read this kind of stuff. Parker did a wonderful job and I would love to read more by this author. Thank you for such a wonderful story.
