Four years ago Killian said goodbye to Lexie for her own good, so that she could be what he knew she was destined to always be. Those four years have changed them both. Killian is now a member of the MC he always considered his family and Lexie is a world famous star. Killian has been in hell for those four years and fighting has been the only thing that has given him a small margin of release from that constant pain. Lexie closed herself off and focused all her pain into writing, neither are the same and both are shells of who they used to be.
After a tragic event Lexie see's someone looking in on her in her house. When the police are called Lexie learns that there is much more that her band mates and friends haven't told her. Trying to handle this on her own and not wanting her mother who is pregnant to worry Lexie hires security to keep her safe till the police can find and capture the person stalking her. One night while at home her stalker gets too close and her and a dear friends life hangs in the balance. Knowing the only person who can help her is Zane Lexie calls him.
Killian spends a lot of time at the club house so when Zane gets a phone call Killian isn't far away. When Zane's demeanor changes Killian instantly knows something is wrong and when he finds out it's Lexie Killian can only think about getting to her. The years have made Lexie into the beautiful but broken woman standing before Killian and the only thing Killian can think of is keeping her safe by any mean nesasery after finding out what has been going on in Lexie's life.
Even if seeing Killian after all these years breaks Lexie's heart all over again she can't help but be glad seeing him again. But him being by her side every second of every day is torture even if it's to keep her safe, and every time she turns around he alway seems to be there. The more time Killian and Lexie spend together the more they find it hard to deny the love they could never get over, till it all comes to a head and they can't deny they are still both very much in love.
The love is better and stronger than before and all consuming. Neither Lexie or Killian can believe how happy they are and how much they are looking forward to the future they never thought they would get together. Even with a crazy stalker after her Lexie has never been happier of more complete. Loving Killian and learning how he has changed Lexie finds the peace only he can give her. Killian never though he was good enough for Lexie but seeing her again he knows there is no place he would rather be. Letting go of the pain only makes room for their future but First Killian has to make sure they have a future, but if the person after her has anything to say about it they won't.
I loved this book I hated that Killian and Lexie were apart but when they get back together it is all that much more sweet. Seeing how broken they both were was heartbreaking, they were both shells of themselves and neither of them really ever lived with out each other. But them getting back together couldn't have been any sweeter. Killian is just as amazing but all grown up, yes he's hardened around his edges but that just makes him more astonishing. Lexie is his air he breathes and you can tell them being apart has been like he's been dead.
Lexie is just as sweet, smart, and thoughtful as well as kind but Killian walking away was like a line in her life. Everything was before and after they moment Killian broke her heart. Though Lexie has found fame, and has people who love her dearly around her she is broken and Lexie really hasn't lived. Both Lexie and Killian were made for each other and without the other half they are both shells of themselves.
I loved that though Killian is this bog bad biker he still is so sweet, he still is just as sweet but harder around the edges. Their relationship was and is so special to me, this is a book that has been with me long after it and book one were finished. Its a book/series I wish I could read over for the first time again. I love that we see all the old gang in this book, Mia and Zane are also so special to me and I loved seeing how they are now, and seeing how Zanes protective instincts are stronger than ever.
We also get to see more of the band and see snippets of their stories. I can't wait for what is to come. I love the tie ins we see and it's just made me even more excited for the books coming. And then their was Lexie and Zane. I can't tell you how monumental their relationship is to me. I loved it in Zane and Mia's book, I loved it in book 1 and was so impressed with the growth we see, and in this book you get even more beauty that is their relationship. We see a true unconditional father daughter bond and relationship that is no different has Lexie been his biological daughter.
I have to admit I am sad to see this book/series that yes was epic come to an end. There have been so many amazing moments literally too many to note. This book had me in tears, multiple times. I loved that even when they were apart Lexie was always with Killian and Anne Malcom does a remarkable job showing us this and that moment in particular had me flipping out. Anne Malcolm is a exceptional author. The growth she has shown is a little scary because its so amazing. She grabs ahold of you with these stories and characters making you unable to do anything be come along for the ride. I can't wait for hats to come, I love all these characters so much, they have become so important to me and I am excited to see what she will come up with next.
Do I recommend this book/series, yes I can't recommend it enough if your on the fence here's me pushing you:} Also please note you do need to read book one before this book since these two book are Lexie and Killian's full story but be happy that means you have two whole books to enjoy.

I hadn’t realized until now how much I’d been hiding from myself. Not from the pain, it was impossible to hide from that, but from just how much I loved Killian. How much I still loved him. I’d numbed myself from most of it; my body had done it out of survival instinct from the moment I saw him in the hospital room. My subconscious had shielded me from just how deep that love still went after all these years. How it was coiled around my bones. And now I’d exposed it. I knew why I had numbed myself from the majority of it. Because it threatened to kill me. To destroy me.
Four years have passed since the day Killian broke Lexie's heart, stepping out of her way so that she could follow her dream. As the lead singer of Unquiet Mind, those four years have been filled with pain for Lexie. Killian was her first love and having him push her aside has made her a shadow of her former self. When a fan turns stalker, her stepfather Zane tasks Killian to be her bodyguard. Shocked but knowing that she would do anything for her mother and stepfather's piece of mind, she accepts.
Killian has spent the last four years regretting letting Lexie go and now that her life is in danger, there was no way in hell he was going to let go again. He would win his way back into her life again.
Man these two. I so desperately wanted them back together but the pain, confusion, and fear that losing him again would destroy her, holds her back and it near broke my heart while these two fought to get back together.
“I didn’t miss you just because I loved you, because you are my soul, or because livin’ without seeing your smile or hearing you sing was a physical hurt that Hades himself couldn’t even reproduce in torture. No, they were parts of it. Big parts. I missed you because you’re my sanctuary. Because you were the oasis in the middle of the wastelands that my life was before you entered it. I plan on livin’ in this sanctuary for the rest of my life.”
I blinked at him. “Wow,” I whispered.
He grinned against my mouth. “You’re a girl who writes some of the most famous and beautiful songs in the world and ‘wow’ is the best you can do?”
“It’s the only thing I can do,” I told him. “I don’t think I’ll be able to find the words that form the right response to that.” My hand moved underneath his tee, running over the ridges of his abs then downward to dip into his jeans. Killian hardened in my hands. “I guess I’ll just have to show you,” I whispered.
Killian sucked in a breath. “I’m not averse to that, freckles,” he rasped.
My heart literally hurt for these characters. To have that kind of love at such a young age and have it torn apart. Theirs isn't just young love but the loss of a soulmate, which left them both floundering in the wind. Both having this dream that someday they would be together but never acting on it until they were forced too. Ack! The angst that this book filled me with. These characters have had a grip on my heart through several books now and I'm so happy to finally have read their happily ever after.
“Don’t know what to do with this life, the one that keeps givin’ me the most beautiful gifts a man could ever hold in his hands,” he growled. “You just made me the happiest motherf***** on the planet earth, freckles. Live the rest of my life tasting the sweetness of this moment.”
And then he kissed me, and I got to taste the sweetness too. Suffice to say, it was.
