One night sealed their fate…
Virginia “Ginny” Valentine didn’t think she could feel so connected to another person after one night of "just talking." The beautiful and famous country singer had everything in her life...everything but that connection. And after experiencing it for the first time, she wanted more, and she wanted it with him…
Dax Archer felt it the second he laid eyes on her. From that moment, the bodyguard and former Marine knew he had to make her his in every way possible. But when she disappeared from his life after leaving only a note to say she’d never forget him, he didn’t know how…
With some time set aside to create new music, Ginny was also ready to create something special with the man that consumed her every waking thought. After being reunited with the woman who owned him mind, body and soul, he was ready to make her feel all that he felt and more…
Dax and Ginny's story delivers what the cover promises. Insanely hot, sensuous, and seductive doesn't even cover the heat and magic between them. But it is not just sexy feelings and lust filled thoughts. The magic comes from the tenderness, the refreshing innocence, the desire to be more, and the ability to accept without a clause. And there are all the feels, indeed, in play as Dax and Ginny learn about each other, learn about love, feelings, and relationships.
I have been intrigued by these two since the last story where they initially met and Dax claimed at the first sight that he was going to marry Ginny. And that straight forward honesty, the bluntness, honor, loyalty, and integrity follows throughout the bumpy, fervent road Ginny and Dax has to follow to their HEA.
Ginny's life with all the turmoil and uproar was a perplexing way to live. The stress, the demands, the tabloids, the pretense, the suffocating protective mothering were the other side of the coin many don't stop to think about, the world where the closest to you might be the one stabbing you in the back. I love the cross over to Hope Falls when it came to Ginny's career, even the thought of these two worlds mixing up makes me smile. But what brought the emotions up close to the surface was the connecting with the family she didn't know she had, and the absolute acceptance that followed from it.
Ginny and Dax with their flaming passion and sweet adoration of each other won me over immediately, making this one of those stories that are impossible to put down until the end. I lived in the moment with them, the pictures and scenes clearly in my mind as they fumble with the feelings, life, music, and love. I loved the crispness of the tale, the freshness, originality of it, and the wisdom of the Colonel as he speaks of what love in a relationship truly is. That moment resonated with me so strongly, as I remember having that conversation with my own dad years ago, and I wish everyone could/should hear those words of wisdom and live them true in their own lives, making the world much happier place for all.
My heart is so full tonight after reading Dax and Ginny's story, the delight, elation, and the pleasure of their love left me smiling, and the end scene swooning. I don't know how it is possible, but these stories are just getting better and hitting harder each one.
