After finding each other and falling in love in Someday Girl, Cat and Jace’s incredible love story continues in One Day His.
When the beautiful and sheltered Cat Nichols left her life in Malibu for a fresh start at college, she had no idea she would meet and fall in love with sexy former Marine Jace Butler. After confronting his difficult past together, the loving couple had hoped that the worst was behind them. But when a family emergency calls Cat back home, they will both soon realize that their newfound love is once again going to be put to the test.
This time, Cat will come to face to face with the one person who, instead of loving her unconditionally, lives to darken her world, just to make their own shine brighter. Will Cat and Jace have the strength and courage to face their deepest, darkest fears when they are challenged in ways neither of them could have imagined? Or will outside forces tear them apart once and for all?
You can’t choose the one you love, but you can fight like hell to protect them.
The story of Cat and Jace continues with One Day His.
And it is as involved and intense, as the Someday Girl, part one, was.
I cherished to see how the relationship between Cat and Jace is growing, at the same time as they are growing themselves. They are learning to know each other, and trust each other. They truly seemed to have found home within each other. For the first time ever, they both are able to love and receive total support, and are cared for. The relationship is HOT and steamy, the heat level is high, but the relationship is so loving, and it is so beautifully written, it fits into the story well.
Cat is growing as a person, learning to stand up for herself, as she sees her old world through the eyes of Jace, while Jace is feeling centered by Cat's love and presence. The relationship, the depth of the feelings, between them is so exquisite and lovely.
The abuse Cat has suffered at home before she left for college is now even more evident, as Cat and Jace are visiting her mother's estate. The tension Cat's mom, creates around the house is palpable. Reading about her is like watching a train wreck, you see it coming, but there's nothing you can do to stop her, and no way can you put the book down either. The story pulled me in so tight, got so under my skin, I could feel the pain and devastation she left behind.
The story is written in first person, with both Cat's and Jace's point of views. The book ends in a cliffhanger, but thankfully, you don't have to wait for too long to get the next installment into your hands.
Yes, it is another five spoon performance from Melanie Shawn, with high recommendations. (And keep the tissues near by!)
