Review by: Leeann

Ok, even though this book has a huge twisting cliff hanger I’m still giving it a huge 5 stars!!

This is a story about a Navy Seal wife, Natalie who finds herself about to have a baby any day now & suddenly widowed. She struggles to
move forward, but realises after she gives birth that she has no choice because she is now a single parent & the only person for her
daughter to rely on.

Liam was  Natalie’s husbands best friend. He is also a Seal. When his best friend dies he keeps his promise to make sure Natalie & her
daughter are ok.  Because her husband was no longer an active in service Seal, the Navy don’t offer Natalie any support so she finds she has
to lean on Liam & her other friends.

As their relationship progresses, Natalie & Liam realise that it is ok to fall in love with each other and they are also helping each other
heal from the loss of someone they both loved more than anything.
There are hurtful secrets that are revealed which provide unwanted distractions to their relationship but they realise if they want to have any hope of
successful relationship they have to learn to trust each other and communicate openly no matter what.

Natalie thinks Liam is wonderful & the way he is with her daughter is beautiful, she loves to watch them together.

Just when life couldn’t get any better there is a huge twist at the end that no one saw coming. Will Liam & Natalie’s relationship survive this development??
Well, we have to wait for book 2 to come out to find out!!

I cannot wait to get my hands on the 2nd book to see if they survive this latest shock!!

5 Stars


Aarabelle sits in her highchair as I feed her dinner. She’s growing so fast. Already she’s eating cereal and a little baby food. Soon she’ll be crawling and I have no one to celebrate with. Her father will never see these milestones and it breaks me apart.
“You should really lock the door,” Liam huffs as he throws his coat over the chair.
“But then I’d have to get up to let you in,” I state matter-of-factly and go back to feeding the baby, trying to put aside my worries. The fact is…this is reality. I have to deal with it.
“Uh huh. Hey, Pumpkin,” his eyes alight as he crouches down by Aara. It’s adorable hearing grown men use a baby voice. It gets a little softer and higher pitched.
The corners of her mouth lift and she throws her arms in the air when he gets close. My heart sputters seeing how happy she gets seeing him. Liam kisses her head and she giggles.
“At least someone is happy to see me,” he says playfully.
“I’d be happy if you brought me a present,” I joke.
He laughs and goes into the pocket of his coat. “Just so happens I did, but since that’s the only way you’ll be nice, I’ll hold on to this until you’ve earned it.”
Practically leaping out of my chair, I rush over. “What is it?” I try to peer around his back as he holds the mystery item.
Liam’s lips curl as he sees how much I want this. I don’t even know what it is. Jeez, I’m an idiot. “Nope. We eat first, then maybe you’ll get it.”
“Watch, it’s a freaking Pez dispenser or something stupid.”
“Guess you’ll have to be nice to find out.” He shoves the item into his back pocket and I fight the urge to reach and get it. “How was work?”
We spend the next thirty minutes going over my day and Jackson’s return. Liam never mentioned that they spoke, but he’s surprised to hear he’s in Virginia. After we finish the pizza, Liam somehow convinces me we should watch a movie. I get Aarabelle to bed and come down to find him sprawled out on the couch.
“By all means, make yourself comfortable.”
Liam pulls his beanie higher on his forehead and his eyes glimmer with amusement. He sits up and puts the TV on. “I picked the movie.”
“What?” I ask with mock incredulity. “It’s my house. Why do you get to pick the movie?”
“Ummm, I’m the guest.” He shrugs as if this should be an obvious answer.
I groan and lean back. “What crappy, shoot-‘em-up movie do I have to endure?”
