The Hands of the Potters, Bk 3𝗕𝗹𝘂𝗿𝗯: Dr. Duke Potter is no hero. Nor am I some damsel that needs saving—if that’s what we’re calling it. But that’s exactly what Duke thinks he did when he found me on the arm of a short-tempered congressman, arranged to be married. I should have told him the truth. The real reason behind my involvement with the congressman. I shouldn’t have danced in his arms and reminisced about the time when we ran away together. But I most definitely shouldn’t have chugged that last drink and said, “I do,” marrying my childhood love. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Duke and I have caused a scandal. This time, though, we have more than just our reputations on the line. Duke will never let me go. There is no annulment in our future. Only the consequences of the devastating secret I’ve kept from our past. Add The Sculptor to Goodreads: https://geni.us/tRjn7
A fast paced story filled with so many twists and turns that no one saw it coming. Kristy Marie has written a tragic, whirlwind story about two stars crossed lovers, enthralling and captivating with a strong hint of angst and sarcasm. I’ve read it in one sitting totally enraptured, in the first place somehow confused about how it started, the narrative alternating with the past and understanding how significant those parts were in the present. However I was already rooting for Duke and Ramsey, the anti hero and the woman who stole his heart so many years ago with a mysterious purpose. When they crossed paths, all bets were off, all was fair in love and war and Duke was determined to claim what was his, and never ceased to be. A tortured hero who wasn’t afraid to show his emotions and was not running away. Never when it comes to Ramsey. They were explosive together and made a strong team, fearsome and unstoppable. But will the past and secrets destroy them in the process? I appreciated how the main characters didn’t beat around the bush and were not afraid to show their true colors and I have to say that I have some crush on some supportive characters. (Especially Remington but I digress) The banter and chemistry were off the charts, the angst was on point. It was nonetheless heavy on the feels but it had humor that instilled some lightness into the story. I’ve been inexorably drawn into this story about these soulmates who had found their way back together, facing challenging times and creating their happy ending on their own terms. Broken characters that healed together, passionate and raw. A love that transcends time and distance, proving that it can conquer all. Epic!
