Standalone though part of a larger series
Told from both POVs
Minor editing issues
First off, I have loved every single book in this series and I am so sad to see it come to an end. This author has done an amazing job building characters that you want to root for, even in their darkest moments. This book reminded me how much I loved this series and I actually plan to re-read them all soon.
Braedon is a Marine visiting his brother in Las Vegas. Married to the military he has no intention of falling in love and marrying anyone else. AJ is married to her dreams. She plans to be a star and live the lavish lifestyle she has always dreamed of and there is nothing that will stop her. The funny thing about fate is, it doesn't care what your intentions are.
Neither expected more than one night, but after one taste, they both realized it just wasn't enough. Weeks go by and they try to see each other as much as possible, but when Braedon gets his marching orders he has to take off to Iraq for 6 months. Neither expected that when those 6 months were up, they wouldn't be the same people they are now.
I don't want to give too much away but this book deals with some real hard issues. The author did a beautiful job of navigating the story line and the struggles both characters faced when all they thought their future held was taken from them.
It might be my favorite book of the entire series. It was the perfect blend of steamy, funny, serious, and beautiful.
A must read! Can't wait for more from this author.
While I am sad to see this series come to an end, I’ve been really looking forward to this book, and it’s a very worthy end to a collection of wonderful, character-driven stories, finishing the series with (in my opinion) one of the best. Having said that though, this book would stand strongly on its own, and could be read without the others first (though of course you would be missing background on the side characters).
Braeden has appeared in the series before. He is Blake’s younger brother who, after escaping the controlling hand of his father, became a marine. He loves his job and has dedicated his life to proudly serving his country, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t enjoy a bit of fun as well, and he often makes the trip down to Vegas to visit his brother and party it up as he enjoys the single life.
AJ is a performer in a Cirque-du-Soleil-ish act on the Vegas strip. It’s what she’s always dreamed of and she’s loving her new life, working her butt off to make her dreams a reality and not letting anything get in her way.
Braeden and AJ meet one night in the casino, there’s a spark, and it’s all on. From that first meeting full of flirty smiles and witty banter, to fun moments and easy conversation as they get to know each other, you can feel their attraction blossom. And they hold nothing back from each other, offering complete honesty about their feelings and where they are at, all underpinned by sizzling chemistry which builds beautifully into a steaming hot weekend that both of them know they won’t be able to walk away from.
And what develops is an absolutely gorgeous, though undefined, relationship as Braeden and AJ steal every moment they can – having fun together, exploring their insane chemistry, and being there for each other in all the ways they want to be. But then the time comes for Braeden’s deployment and they are suddenly facing six months apart. They face it sensibly, knowing that 6 months isn’t forever, but also knowing that they are both single-mindedly pursuing their dream careers, so they don’t put any unrealistic expectations on themselves or each other. But those six months will change them irrevocably, and finding their way back to each other will be a journey that neither of them expected.
I won’t say any more because you seriously just need to dive in and experience it – and let me tell you that you will feel every single moment of it! My heart ached for these characters. ACHED! I felt so much for them, and I wanted to badly to reach into my book and hold them both. But the way it all played out was just magic. I could understand where they were at, and it was hard and messy at times, but I admired them so much for the way they dealt with everything. And as they work to overcome all that they are faced with, everything that was once between them is still very much there and the love story beautifully and naturally unfolds.
Braeden and AJ are amazing. I love their fun, their honesty, their intelligence, and their willingness to explore everything happening between them. They are the kind of characters that I love reading about. But not to be outdone, I loved seeing more of Blake in the role of big brother. He really steps up for Brae, and he had me in tears more than once as he unequivocally has his brother’s back. (view spoiler)
The rest of the MMA crew and their girls are all a part of the journey, and I loved catching up with them and getting some progression for their stories as well, but Braeden and AJ and their story absolutely shine among a sea of much-loved characters, and I adored their book.
5 huge stars.
