He’d lost his best friend…
Logan Dorsey left the military and his job as an undercover detective, but he still couldn’t shake the nightmares that haunted him. The only thing that had ever silenced the horrors for the chiseled former Marine was the one woman that was untouchable for so many reason…
She’d lost her husband…
Emma Locke wrote romantic stories for a living despite the fact that her happily-ever-after had been taken away years ago. The gorgeous, blue-eyed, twenty-six year old widow and single mom had nothing in her life to connect her with the love and heat she needed to write about. Nothing to inspire that kind of passion...except the one man that was off limits.
They say time heals all wounds, but can it also be enough to grow new love?
Sometimes life delivers more than we could ever dare to hope and dream for, and in this new instalment to Hope Falls series, Logan and Emma are about to be delivered with so much adoration, devotion, and love, that it will leave you breathless, and smiling, cause there's no one else, that would deserve a HEA, more than Emma and Logan.
Logan is haunted by the ghost of his past, he has witnessed and lost so much while risking his life to serve his country. The night terrors, the restlessness, and need for solitude keeps a tight hold of him and his thoughts. He lost his mother at a young age, his father was a hopeless drunk, but he and his twin brother grew up to be good men, despite the odds, thanks to their older brother, who gave up his dreams to raise the up. Logan doesn't believe in love, doesn't believe in relationships and forever, and has managed to stay away from so far. The only constant in his thoughts, is the one woman he can't even think of, his best friend's widow, Emma.
Emma is a true superhero, mom and married at 16, widowed by 20, and surviving, making it all happen, on her own. Her family turned their back on her when she became pregnant, the only one she could rely on, is his son Drew's godfather, Logan, who she hasn't seen in four years, after an incident in her kitchen drove him away.
Now life, and Drew, has brought them together at the cabin in the Hope Falls, and the old attraction is burning high. They are fumbling in a lust filled haze, trying to avoid the feelings they have for each other.
The inner thoughts, the conversations in their heads, that they have, as they aspire to talk themselves to keep the distance, are ongoing and at times hilarious.
There are several moments that are so touching, as they live like a little family in the cabin. When Drew says thanks to Logan, for taking care of his mother, it is like a tribute to all single mothers out there. Like Emma's life in general is, the sacrifices she makes, the time she invests, and the love she pours out, just hoping it is enough to Drew without a father.
But Logan would do anything for Emma, they are so perfectly in tune, it is amazing and unique. His protection of her is endearing, he's one of a kind memory helps him to remember small details from their past, and for once Emma is being pampered with attention and care.
And when they finally get together, the union is scorching hot, sexy and yet so beautiful. Logan and Emma are natural together, the sexy scenes are captivating, because of the feelings and emotions, Emma and Logan go through, the unity they have. It is like they see to each others soul, deep into the person they are, accept it, embrace it, admire it, and love it. Like they finally found the place they belong, their home.
The story is not only filled with Logan and Emma's story, but there are several visits from the previous characters with surprises included. All Hope Falls books are stand-alone novels, but this series is filled with swoon worthy romance, memorable characters, big emotions, humor, laughter, and a few tears, in a midst of a caring community, and I would recommend every book in the series.
For Logan and Emma's unforgettable and emotional story
