New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels brings another second chance standalone in the town of Rose Canyon.
My biggest mistake was falling in love with my fake husband.
It was supposed to be a marriage of convenience between two best friends in the military. Our plan was to collect extra money and stay stationed together.
But what failed? Me. I did. Because suddenly I wanted a man who was never meant to be my real husband.
In an attempt to remedy my mistake, I severed all ties and put my life as a combat medic and Emmett Maxwell behind me. I’ve lost too many people to open myself up to love.
Now I’m working as a private investigator, and fate has stepped in, forcing our paths to intersect again when I’m looking into the disappearance of a missing girl with ties to Emmett’s hometown. A case I fear puts his life in danger.
He gives me one week to prove my suspicions and then I need to sign the divorce papers and leave. The problem with that? The moment I see Emmett again, I realize how foolish it was to leave him, to think I could ever stop loving him. All I want is a second chance.
When the case threatens not only my life but also his, I’m faced with my worst fear. How many times can a heart break before it shatters beyond repair?
If you have read any books by this author, you know that she loves twisty angst that makes you cry. The kind that actually makes you wonder if there will be a happy ending for the characters (although it is a romance, so of course there is.)
That said, one of these days, I really think Ms. Michaels is going to follow through on her threat and actually kill off the hero (or heroine) in one of her romance novels...although I am guessing she would still find a way to give them a happily ever after. And, there were a few points in this one where it was angsty and twisty enough that, well, as a reader, you suffer with them.
Emmett and Blakely was just twisty enough that I was really wondering how in the world this was ever going to work out for them, and it was torture as I liked both of them, and I wanted them to find their way back to one another...and I can't lie, I suffered as much as they did, I think.
I enjoyed and recommend this title. Even though you are going to need tissues.
