Branna Murphy is broken. For months now she has been a part of a one-sided relationship to a man she loves more than life itself. She prayed for a miracle, and hoped something would change, but found that was wishful thinking.
Talking didn’t work. Shouting didn’t work. Crying didn’t work. Nothing bloody worked.
Ryder Slater is furious. For months now he has been lying to a woman he would take a bullet for in order to protect her. He is involved in something that goes deeper than his old past, and if he strays off target, people will start to die. People he loves.
He couldn’t talk. He couldn’t slip up. He couldn’t lose focus. He couldn’t do a damn thing.
Things between Ryder and Branna are at rock bottom, and Ryder knows it. Not only will he be taking on a force that could destroy his whole family, but he will be battling tooth and nail to save his relationship and keep the love of his life by his side.
Ryder targeted Branna from the first moment he saw her, and what Ryder targets, Ryder dominates.
“Just tellin’ you like it is,” I smirked. “Kid.”
Ash growled. “You have five-seconds.”
I stood up and quickly scurried around to the other side of our work counter, and placed my hands in front of my chest.
“Ash,” I warned, my voice low. “Don’t even think about it.”
He rounded the station and advanced on me, a smirk playing on his lips.
“Don’t!” I said firmly, hoping my no-bullshit-demeanour would give him reason to stop.
It didn’t, if anything, it only fuelled the freak to come at me faster.
“No!” I shrieked and made a move to dive behind the counter but Ash was too fast, and caught me mid-air.
He set me down, and full on assaulted my sides with his fingertips as he tickled me. I laughed, shrieked some more, and did the strangest moves known to man as I made my bid to escape the terror.
“Mercy!” I laughed. “For the love of God, mercy!”
Ash pulled back on his tickling but kept hold of me as I steadied myself and came down from my laughing high. I was about to playfully sucker punch him and make a run for the break room when I heard my name being… bellowed.
When I saw that Ryder was coming out I was so freaking excited! FINALLY we get to hear Ryder and Branna’s story! Through this entire series they’ve been a couple, but I’ve always wondered how they got together. Then as you start reading more books from the series, you start to get worried, are they going to make it? They’ve been having so many problems lately, you hope their able to work things out.
What I love about this book is that LA Casey does such an amazing job of bring you flashbacks of the past and bringing you back to the present without making it confusing or hard to read. Sometimes it’s hard to mesh those perfectly together, but Casey does it with ease.
While reading this story, my heart just broke for these two. They seem so perfect together and so in love. But secrets will tear any relationship apart, and the secret Ryder is keeping is a big one. Branna is a strong woman, but when the love of your life keeps pushing you away, that would start to break down any woman.
Through this story, you fell so many emotions it feels like you’re on a rollercoaster. You feel the heartache and despair, but you also feel all the love and joy that Ryder and Branna feel. The only question is, with everything that happens, will Branna and Ryder be able to get back to the place they were before? So madly and deeply in love? Or will everything they go through just be the final nail in the coffin….. You’ll just have to read it and see.
I seriously can’t wait to read from from Casey! I’m hoping and praying that we get Damien’s book soon! The dynamic between him and Alannah is amazing, and I hope they end up together! Another great book LA Casey! I’m excited to see what else is to come from you!
