5 out of 5 stars
The story Suddenly Us by Marie Skye is a mystery/suspense romance book. This is the love story of Gwen and Hawkins. Two souls that are haunted by the past. Looking for true love and their soul mate. Will they find what they are looking for in each other’s arms? There are some books that just leave an imprint on your heart and this story is one of them. If I could I would rate it far higher than a 5. This story had me from the very beginning and I couldn’t stop until I had read the ending page. Not only is the story amazing, so are the characters of Gwen and Hawkins. Gwen is a woman who has self-doubts about herself. She has been hurt and doesn’t believe that any man can look past how she looks to see what is really inside. Her friends try to reassure her of her beauty and that she is a person worthy of having true happiness. Then one night changes everything. Gwen finds a connection beginning between her and Hawkins. Will she let him into her heart?
Hawkins is a man that is haunted by his past. His life fell apart because of a failed romance and then a failed mission. He then finds that he has a connection with Gwen and would protect her at all costs. Hawkins is a man that takes his current work very seriously. Security is what he does and prides himself on making sure that when he is on the job his attention is fully focused on the task at hand. He is finding this harder and harder as his feelings for Gwen grows. His protectiveness comes out in full force. Can Hawkins convince Gwen that she is worthy of his love and that she is the one that has stolen his heart?
I have read previous books by the author and when I found out that she wrote this new one I just had to read it. Her characters come alive and are unforgettable. The story will have you rooting for Gwen and Hawkins to get their HEA. If you’re looking for a story that will leave you breathless, this is the one. This book does deal with sensitive subjects and has adult situations. It would be recommended for those 18 years of age or older.
Hawkins has demons, they torment him at all hours of the day and night. He sees his life as a failure, a mission that was never completed. He is always worried about letting the people that need him down because it’s happened before, so it could happen again. And if it does he won’t be able to live with himself. When Gwen comes into his life he must change his way of thinking. Can he put the past behind him and live for more than just his missions? Can they help each other see that they both deserve to be loved?
I am speechless; this book is everything that a romance should be. I started reading and from the very beginning it had me trapped. Trapped in the heart-breaking stories of Gwen and Hawkins. The things they both went through are things that happen every day, they effect the people around you but no one ever seems to talk about them. This book breaks the barriers on PTSD and abuse, Hawkins shows Gwen the light, that it is not okay what happened to her and that it never should have happened. And Gwen heals Hawkins, because that is what love does, it heals the wounds that the past has left. I must say that Marie Skye is one amazing author and I cannot wait to read what she puts out next.
Talk about starting off with a bang! My jaw is literally on the floor right now. If this is just the beginning of this book I can only imagine what the rest will hold for me. Gwens online date is quite the creep! Thank goodness Hawkins came to the rescue! Then later when Grayson is looking for security detail for the girls night out and Hawkins rejects a guy for Gwen saying he is a criminal because he has parking tickets. Ha ha ha....he is in so much trouble! This is a great start to the book. It pulled me in with the shock moment which went to sympathy for the girl then a hot guy rescue!
I loved reading this book! It is my first book by Marie Skye and it will not be the last. This book was suspenseful, had head-shaking humor and let's not forget heart swelling love. There each had some personal issues to deal with and they were dealt with in this story. I don't want to give much away :-) it really made me FEEL for each of their plights. Having never experienced either I felt like I could understand each issue with the way it was written. I loved all the characters in the book even though sometimes I felt like I was missing something. It does make me want to ready about Grayson and Emmalin's story. So that will be next on the agenda.
Hawkins is one scary guy. Not sure I would want to meet him on the dark somewhere unless he was on my side. He is a alpha guy who protects all that he cares about no matter what. I loved the reception he got when he visited his family. It made my heart swell. On the flip side I felt sorry for him with his previous marriage....he deserves more than her! Hopefully he can get Gwen to comply and she will be his.
Gwen seems very unsure of herself. I know she was in a bad relationship but she is lucky Hawkins didn't give up on her. If only everyone could have their own Knight in shining armor :-) named Hawkins.
They each gave all they have to other people that didn't care about them. What do they have left and is it enough for each other?
So many favorite moments in this story and the ending couldn't have been better!
I need you to say "yes" to the next question
