Iv been wanting to read this book for ages now, I love Lisa's work so much.. she hasn't disappointed yet.
The book starts Haven's point of view, she is a rich girl who feels guilty for all the money her family has, she goes to a family wedding with boyfriend Nick, its here she meets Hardy , she follows him in to the wine cellar thinking he is Nick. She doesn't find out he's not Nick till she is kissing him in the dark, and man what a kiss *swoon*. They agree to leave things there and not tell anyone what had happened but the attraction was still there. I so don't blame Haven for this because Hardy is really hot.
In the book Haven goes on to marry Nick, all her family tell her not to because they don't trust him, they think he's just after her family's money.But she marries him any way and things go very bad. Nick turns violent and bossy and controlling. He works on Haven till she has no confidence left in her. Now the scene that sticks in my head, is when Lisa goes in to great detail of Nick's abuse of her. he rapes her so hard he rips her insides and then he beats her till she is all most dead. if it wasn't for Gage, Haven's big brother she wouldn't of made it out alive. And this makes me love Gage even more then i did in the first book. He will do anything for his little sister and I think its so sweet. Gage helps her through her divorce so she doesn't have to see much of Nick and then she gets help from her brother Jack in the form of a job, along the way she comes back in contact with Hardy and they have to work together to over come Havens past.
I'm going to leave it there because I don't want to spoil the book for you all, but omg I loved it. I don't think iv read one of Lisa's books I didn't like, but after reading the first book in this series i was so disappointed that Hardy didn't end up with liberty, I did love Gage, but for people to end up with there first love is so romantic, But having said that I'm so glad he got with Haven. I loved Haven so much and the way she was so strong to deal with what she did. I was like wow, I think more women should be as strong as she was. I think Lisa did a good job with this book, it gave me so many ups and downs, she had me crying like a baby at one point. and so happy the next. yes I know I'm going on but I did really love this book. I'm really thinking of buying the full series..
Thank you Lisa for such a great read. xx
