The story Tortured Skye: A Hawke Family Novel (The Hawke Family Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee is the second book in the Hawke Family saga. It revolves around the romance between Gabe Anderson and Skye Hawke. It all started with a kiss. A kiss that brings conflicted feelings and guilt. Skye has always felt a connection between her and Gabe and when she acts on these feelings she is crushed when he pushes her way. Gabe knows that it is asking for trouble, falling in love with his best friend’s sister. Savage has always been like a brother to him, so how can he start a relationship that he knows will tear their friendship apart? Will Skye and Gabe continue to fight their feelings for one another or will they throw caution to the wind to be together?
This book is amazing! I loved the first book, Savage Collision, and this second book is just as awesome. I love that author’s writing style and she makes the characters come alive. This story shows that we can’t always control who we fall in love with, so you have to make a decision on either hanging on to love or letting it go. I absolutely love the characters of Gabe and Skye. Skye is still in pain because of the death of her twin sister. She feels guilt over his sister’s death and lashes out at everyone, always making her feelings known and causing conflict within her family. She is also hurt that when she makes her feelings known to Gabe he pushes her away. This causes a rift between them. Skye knows that Gabe is conflicted regarding their relationship and also finds that he has demons from his past that torture him. Is she willing to hang on to Gabe and convince him that their love is worth the consequences it brings?
Gabe is the best friend and business partner with Savage. He is a loyal friend and business partner. He has shown this time and again, even putting his life and well-being on the line. Gabe is also well known as a player. However, his feelings for Skye are so intense that he finds himself not able to push her away anymore. He knows what is going to happen when the truth comes out. Gabe’s life has never been easy. The Hawke family took him in and treats him like he is one of them. He has his demons from the past and is constantly trying to rid himself of them. Is he ready to put everything on the line and hold onto the woman that he loves?
I don’t think that I have all the correct words to properly explain why I love this book and series so much. The deep emotions that I feel when reading this book sometimes overwhelmed me. That to me shows that the writer has touched my heart and soul. If you haven’t read the first book in the series I have to recommend you do so. It introduces Skye and Gabe as well as the other Hawke family members and I feel is the foundation of the series. Just reading these two books I already feel like the characters are friends that I want to drop in on from time to time and catch up on their lives. I can’t wait to see which family member the author writes about next. This book does have adult themes and situations which would make this a book for those 18 years of age or older.
Ahh forbidden romance, one of my favorite tropes! Skye is hot for her older brother’s best friend, and it is beyond mutual. It all comes crashing down when they kiss, and now the desire between them is practically obsessive. They attempt to fight through the haze of lust to see reason. Gabe is better at denying her, he thinks that any relationship between them would be doomed-and he would lose too much in the process. Skye is all in-she is optimistic that their love can defy all odds. Skye is also an emotional mess after tragedy befalls her family, and she needs something/someone-to help save her from her pain. Can Gabe become her light in the dark? Can they defy the odds? And what will happen when Savage finds out?
This book is everything: hot, steamy, frustrating, hopeful, and sad. The author knows how to emote, and hands down-you feel ALL the feels while reading! So good, it was read in one sitting! I really loved the first novel, and was a huge fan of these characters from the start. The characters are very relatable, and vividly written. The plot is fast paced, and leaves you wanting more. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the Hawke family!
We find ourselves finally learning more about Skye Hawke and what drives her. She has always been considered the irresponsible twin, the one most likely to mess up. She is snarky even with her own family and although she portrays a certain aloofness and cold exterior, she is much more than that inside.
“And I need this. I want this more than my next breath right now.” The need is what this story is all about. The want…the must have…it drives everything these two do in their lives.
Gabe Anderson is her oldest brother’s best friend. He may not be a Hawke but he was essential raised as one. Having feelings for this man is wrong in so many ways. Gabe has demons….so many demons that drive him away from any real relationship. He does not do permanence. He will be loyal to his friends, to his Hawke family but otherwise wishes to remain unencumbered. That is until Skye kisses him. Now he finds his world turning on its axis and he doesn’t know what to do. He risks losing everything, his family, his best friend, his career, his heart, himself and quite possibly his life.
Skye knows what she wants and she wants Gabe. Gabe has been in her life for so long. He has always been there whenever she or her sister Star, or anyone in her family has needed him. Although she knows Savage will be upset, it never dawns on her that one simple kiss could cause this destructive ripple effect.
Do these two have what it takes to weather the storm that is coming their way? Is it love? And is love enough?
