Synopsis

We fell in love on a beach, got married in paradise, and I carried her off into the sunset. It should have been perfect, but saying “I do” doesn’t guarantee a happily-ever-after.

Two years later, I barely recognize either of us behind the walls we’ve built.

It’s time to bring it full circle. Back to a tropical paradise. Back to find out if we can still make this work.

I’m not willing to give her up, but to save us, I have to risk everything.

Two damaged people.

Countless secrets.

The fight of our lives.

We might be broken, but we’re not done.

 

REVIEW

Kat and Dane have only been married a few years. Theirs was a whirlwind romance and even though it burned hot and bright to start, it appears the flame is about to go out. Dane is keeping big secrets he has yet to reveal to Kat and even though she doesn’t mean to, Kat is building a wall to keep Dane out and hiding herself in work  after losing too many people loved. Will their 2 year anniversary romantic trip save their marriage? Will Kat be able to forget about work and focus on her love for Dane? Or will the secrets Dane has been keeping finally catch up to him in a way he couldn’t imagine? 

“In fairy tales, the wedding is always followed by and they lived happily ever after. In real life, I do just means the real work begins.”

This was an unexpected read but in a great way. It was definitely a romance and that element of it was classic. A second chance between a young couple who have lost their way but don’t want to lose each other. But we also had the surprise of Dane’s secret and the way in which is catches up to him. You think things are moving in the right direction and then suddenly it all changes. 

“But I’m not willing to give her up without a fight. I want her afraid. I want her off-balance. Bottom line, I want her.”

Dane and Kat were both beautiful but broken in their own way. Kat is not letting Dane in because she has lost too many people she loves and is scared of getting hurt. But she’s also hiding a secret that she is scared to burden Dane with. She is beautiful, funny and her love for Dane and the way she doesn’t want to give up brought a tear to my eye.  Dane is handsome and fit, and even though he is frustrated with Kat, he wants to do everything he can to not let their relationship fail. I loved them both, and wanted so badly for their marriage to work out so they could get their HEA. 

“I want every day I can get, whether it’s twenty thousand or twenty. I love you, Kat.”

Even though the romance between the two main characters was perfectly written and really enjoyable to read about. It wasn’t just the romance that kept me reading. The drama, suspense and action was unexpected and just added an exciting element and threw a spanner in the works when you thought everything was going to be fine! The story just flowed and kept you interested throughout. The only slight negative for me was that it the drama/action part of it seemed to begin and then end quite quickly but that’s only because I wanted more! Can’t wait for the next read from this author.
