I don’t remember a time I didn’t love Crenshaw Bennett.
I tried to deny it, but my feelings grew deeper.
I thought he could never love me the way I love him.
I was wrong—outrageously, deliriously, and beautifully wrong.
One innocent kiss changes my life forever.
Suddenly, Shaw is mine.
Loyal, devoted, and the most loving man on this Earth.
Together, we create an explosion of fiery passion, devotion, and chemistry I never knew was possible.
All of my dreams are within reach, but I should have known it was too good to be true.
The past always catches up to you, and I’m left staring at my worst nightmare.
Faced with the unthinkable, I am forced to choose between the man I love and a past I cannot change.
Shaw’s fighting like hell to prove we can have it all, but can I find the strength to be the woman he needs?
I love when romances take place between two people who have known each other since they were kids, or at least on the young side. What can I say I love a good back story. So Bizzy and Shaw have known each other for a very long time, she was best friends with his little brother when they were both going through cancer treatments. And now that they have all grown up, Bizzy is incredibly close to Shaw’s whole family.
Bizzy has had feelings for Shaw pretty much since the moment that she saw him. But she has always kept it on the back burner, never really expecting anything to come from it. Until one day things change between the two of them, and it’s more than just being close, it’s shifted to be romantic. It’s actually really kind of cute and fun to see how Bizzy takes this new found shift in their relationship, I mean she doesn’t exactly trust that it’s real, but she isn’t about to turn it down either.
Shaw I really loved in the beginning. I loved seeing how protective he could be, and only in the best ways, he wasn’t overbearing or anything like that. He also has really good relationships with his brothers and whole family, which I liked. However, of course it wasn’t going to be smooth sailing for Bizzy and Shaw, I mean what kind of book would that be. See Shaw had a couple of hook ups with this one chick (you can call her Satan), and it turns out she is also one of the people who used to make Bizzy’s life miserable when they were in high school together. Of course Shaw didn’t know this, and now Satan basically won’t go away, she’s the absolute worst. And yes I totally understood that Shaw had to deal with this situation, I mean it was out of his control, but honestly sometimes he just dealt with it in the complete wrong way.
I will say that Bizzy is possibly the wouldn’t most understanding person on the planet, I mean I don’t think I know many people who could have been as understanding as she was about things. But that being said, I liked when she knew that it was time for her to pull back and protect herself. The whole situation kind of sucked, but even with that, I really wanted these two to work it out. They were so much more than just two people trying to make it work, these two have such a history and their lives are so intertwined you couldn’t help but want the two of them to figure it all out and how to be together. I was surprised at how much a enjoyed the book because I tend to either really love or really hate books with interfering exes, but thankfully this one worked for me. I am looking forward to reading more from the author in the future.
