The last person in the world he wanted to see…ever.
And now that he’s working beside her every day, he can’t escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he’d only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.
Brant Wellington was certain of three things:
Alcohol wasn’t going to solve this.
He really was losing his F-ing mind.
And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.
Nikki and Brant fell in love at a young age, the once in a lifetime kind of love. However, neither of their families approved of the serious nature of their relationship at the time, so when tragedy struck they has no support system to help them navigate their way through it.
With a lot of pain and hurt on both sides, a second incident directly following the first, Brant took the easy way out by leaving Nikki to cope by herself. Although there was blame on both sides, Nikki deals with her losses while Brant buries his pain deep inside himself; numbing himself with alcohol, drugs and women in attempt to forget all he has lost.
The meddling of Brant’s grandfather and the human steamroller – Nadine – put Nikki and Brant back on a collision course. Their intense relationship flares back to life whenever they are near each other, although so does the emotional baggage they both carry. Brant has to face all of the things he has tried so hard to forget in order to gain control of his life.
Forced to work through their issues by the people closest to them, communication without inflicting more damage opens a whole new future for them both. Nikki and Brant belong together and the second chance they have been given is something they treasure.
I loved seeing all the pieces fall into place from the interference by the grandparents , however, I do feel to really complete the series there needs to be an additional epilogue. I am also hopeful Cole gets his own story 🙂
