I had it preordered because she is an automatic one-click for me!
Judson once had it all as a dutiful son with a pretty, blond girlfriend. Upon the death of his father though everything unraveled and the best choice left to him was to become a Navy SEAL. Before being deployed he has matters of the heart to deal with as he ends thing with one girl while admitting his long-held feelings for another girl, Quinn, who becomes his friend and his lover. His time on foreign soil is a lonely period as he tries to put Quinn behind him but a severe injury brings her to his side for a brief moment of joy before he returns home a broken man. Drugs and alcohol soon become his only solace in scenes that are heartbreaking and hard to read for the feelings of desperation depicted. With Quinn by his side, committed to him, Judson rises from his lonely and mentally bruised past to become a beacon of hope. He's embarrassed by the loss of his leg and his scars early on and sees himself as only half a man, but through Quinn's unconditional love he sees himself in a whole new light. He wanted to be a better man for Quinn and he accomplished that wholeheartedly to become a sexy man talented at dirty talk who slowly endeared himself to me through his words and deeds.
Quinn seemed to have everything going for her until a lying college boy and an unplanned pregnancy left her broken inside, mentally and physically. From that moment on she was on a self-destructive path that Judson finally saved her from as it was the first sign of his feelings for her. He changed her life irrevocably, driving her to make a success out of herself, but also breaking her heart along the way. Finding each other again leads to mutual support and big life changes that keep readers on the edge of their seats as the story picks up steam and races towards its exciting conclusion. Quinn was devastated by certain events during her time in college which I found easy to understand as it's a very trying time. Her commitment to sobriety though never fails and it's this that makes her a solid support when Judson's most in need of help. Quinn's a strong-willed woman, sure in her life choices, but as her heart softens courtesy of melodramatic events befalling a child she starts embracing her more girly side when it comes to love and family.
Quinn and Judson are a powerful couple as they've both experienced rough times in life and survived. They've been in love forever and it's quite obvious how in sync they are as even when no words are spoken they understand each other completely. The romance between them was a scorching one as evidenced by the numerous erotic encounters that burned up the pages. Issues of addiction are addressed with an unflinching hand too that pulled me into Judson's plight and had me aching for how far he'd fallen for just doing his duty. The time line was a bit jumpy at first but once the story got settled I found it very easy to immerse myself in all the highs and lows. Issues of domestic abuse and the foster care system were also touched on and depicted in a very realistic and heartbreaking light. The young Carlo's introduction added much melodrama to the story, a bit of it unnecessary in my opinion, but it did open up Quinn's heart to many possibilities she ignored before to make for a truly HEA. Along with a compelling main couple came a small cast of secondary characters who were often on the periphery but who were a supportive group when things got really bad. One among them, Dex, intrigued me completely and the sad past he hinted at has me longing to hear his story when it's told in the next installment. He's a large yet quiet man who's fiercely protective of kids and who deserves some happiness to bring him out of his stoic demeanor. All in all this was a satisfying series starter that takes readers on a very emotional journey and I look forward to revisiting this gritty yet sensual world Ms. Lynn's crafted.
The death of Judson’s father meant that he felt as if he bore the responsibility of providing for his mother, he didn’t want his brother to have to drop out of college, so he joined the Navy as a SEAL.
When he is injured in the middle east by an IED and ends up in hospital barely making it thorough, it is Quinn that is by his side and it is then that she hears the words that he has longed for him to say for so long, but in his delirium, there is on chance that he will be able to remember that he told her that he loved her and when he eventually comes round completely she is gone.
The story picks up some time later when he attends the funeral of the man that he has considered a father figure for a long a she can remember and when Quinn gives the eulogy he is quickly reminded of just how much he has lost.
While even after all this time the connection between them was never really severed, it was strained, Judson was suffering, the loss of his leg left him in constant pain and he was dangerously addicted to prescription medication ( not always his) and liquor, and when the full extent of his addiction is made clear in what can only be described as dangerous circumstances, he has to face probably his toughest wakeup call and he knows that long overdue decisions have to be made but yet again it is Quinn that is his rock, the woman that refuses to allow him to give up on himself.
But he soon gets with the program when it is pointed out to him that Quinn wrote to him every single day whilst he was away and despite the fact that she never posted them, she has every letter, so with a new-found determination, the penny drops and he seems to understand that he needs to step up and fight not only for Quinn but for himself too, if they are ever going to have a future.
Now I seem to have spent an extraordinary length of time talking about Judson and skipped over Quinn but I don’t mean to ignore her because she was determined, talented woman with a heart that loved unconditionally, she supported Judson even when it appeared that there was no hope of the man that she loved, loving her back.
He past had left lasting issues that Judson was aware of and that form an important theme of the book, so I am not going to spoil it by saying how that particular topic comes to fruition but I was glad that it did.
I love the depth of emotion that the author ploughed into the story, it was beautiful the amount of love that they had for each other but it was a rough journey to where they needed to be. But this was a couple that didn’t give up and that had so much love to give, not only to each other but to those that impact their lives and when you read the story you will see just how true statement is.
Great story, well written. I look forward to Dex’s story
