A story about two best friends to lovers who endured a lot in their lives.
Evan and Frankie Leigh’s story captured my heart and I was rooting for them from the beginning. To finally find their HEA after everything they’ve been through.
But before that, they had some hardships to overcome when Evan made a decision that would break Frankie Leigh’s heart.
Evan had to fight for his life since he was a baby, struggling and bullied. A fighter and Frankie Leigh’s protector. Always and forever. When you saw the two together, it was like love could overcome everything but somehow it wasn’t enough, especially when his insecurities blind his judgment and destroyed all the hope he had inside. Leaving the only girl who captured his heart heartbroken. His only love.
Frankie Leigh had been the only one for Evan like he was to her. A strong bound, powerful and unbreakable. No matter how the distance. But how to forgive someone who crushed her heart and letting it falling into the ground without looking back? She needed to move on and resigned to live a life without that boy who was her everything.
My heart raced so much with their story. To watch them bringing the broken pieces all together made me emotional. I felt their pain, their hopes and damn that passion and smoking hot chemistry. The angst was on point. Hearts at war, tension at its best, I wasn’t looking for something easy and the author managed to bring so many emotions at once.
Evan didn’t take things for granted with Frankie Leigh. He fought to give his girl the love she deserved, to be the man he wanted to be. To give everything, showing his flaws and insecurities, never hiding when things get hard.
It might have taken a while to find his way back to his home, but when he got it, determined to win her back, his girl wouldn’t give it easily and letting him feel how painful it was to be without him, holding her breath, a shadow who was more acting than living. But she was strong and tough and it wasn’t that easy to come back where they shouldn’t have ended.
I was so blown away by this second chance romance. My heart burst so much throughout the story from the good times to the bad ones. What a journey!
A.L. Jackson wrote such an emotional and gripping story. Damn my heart!
