This being Markus` story it fell felt. We didn't really know the relationship between him and Makena we knew he f`ed up but the falling in love part was just implied and glanced over. I wanted more, I wanted all of him. Yet, I was skimming thirty percent into the book. It dragged on for me and I found reasons to put the book down.
Do I still love Toni Also...of course but I think the series is falling short and I want the emotions she gave to me in the previous, earlier books.
That being said, this one kind of missed the mark for me a little. I felt like it was really long and parts of it were simply fillers to make sure it ended with a certain amount of pages. I felt like Markus didn't try hard enough two years ago when he and Mekena first broke up. I felt like her parents were kind of terrible. I guess, the short of it is I did not connect with this book because I couldn't connect with the characters.
All that being said, the grieving part, that was so true to life that it actually HURT to read as someone who has lost a close family member. The writing was great, just the story line didn't work for me like I had hoped. I am still looking forward to the next one though!
I did feel like there might be more between him and Lucy connection wise, especially in the first half of the book.
The implied connection between him and Mekena took longer for me to feel. By the end I was sold.
Loved Markus, even when I thought he was a guilty dog. Mekena was frustrating at times but I was rooting for her.
Again, I'm not sure what purpose the Markus and Lucy bit served.
It all begins with Lucy Sinclair and Benji Paxton's wedding. The wedding has turned into a week long event. It's time for family and friends to reconnect and enjoy one another's company. Markus Reeves is heading home to Nashville from Florida spend time with his adoptive family, the Sinclairs.
Markus Reeves has spent the last couple of years in Florida playing hockey for the Assassins farm team. His life has spun out of control and his dreams are no longer within reach. He always dreamed of playing in the NHL for the Assassins. His game has tanked since his move to Florida. He hates his coach, his teammates, and his life. The only thing he's looking forward to is returning home to Nashville for Lucy's wedding. He's looking forward to spending time with his friends. He also knows it's time to face the music and face the girl he destroyed. The girl that sent his life in a downward spiral.
Lucy's wedding must be his good luck charm. Ellie Adler has come to Jacksonville. He's being brought up on conditional terms. It's his second chance and opportunity to prove his worth as a player and teammate. He's going to do everything in his power to make a place for himself on the Assassins team. He's going to become the man he was supposed to be before his world imploded two years ago. The man he was before he destroyed Mekena Preston.
Mekena Preston has returned to Nashville to photograph Lucy and Benji's wedding. She left Nashville two years ago after Markus and her sister betrayed her. She's not the same girl she once was. Her heart is full of anger and hate. Taking this job means she will have to face Markus Reeves. Although she is not looking forward to seeing him, this time around she is in control. This time around she is going to push back.
Mekena and Markus were both destroyed when he slept with Skylar Preston ( the Bullies series). The betrayal destroyed them both as individuals. Two years later they are both finally going to get closure. They can finally move on in life. They can finally reach their full potential. Fate is once again going to intervene and change both of their destinies. Fate is going to right some wrongs but will come at another high price.
Toni Aleo once again did a wonderful job writing a powerful and emotional book about love, life, friendship, and family. The pure honesty is what makes her books beyond exceptional. Readers have become deeply connected to all her characters and their stories.
I enjoy this author's books so much, but this was not one of her better ones and I was disappointed.
