I wrote this one too so I love it After reading all the good reviews, I was pretty stoked about getting a chance to read this book I was a bit disappointed.The book was 422 pages on my ereader, and that s about 200 pages longer than it should have been It was 200 pages of good story, and 222 pages of beating a horse to death that s figuratively, not literally Lucas and Fallon meet and fall in love at first sight Everything s good for two years,then she catches him betraying her and runs away, not to see him again for 7 years I m sure if you read the synopsis you can figure out what the big secret is that she s been hiding for 7 years Anyway, he gets traded to the Assassins, a hockey team in Tennessee, where Fallon has a close working relationship with the team He s still in love with her after all these years, and wants her back.The part I liked about this book,that earned it the extra star, was Lucas He was a GOOD guy There are some really sweet romantic parts in this book I loved the thing he did with the post it notes, and how committed he was to her and building a family He never wavered, ne
1 star You re supposed to feel fulfilled after reading the HEA in the epilogue, right Then why are my insides churning with annoyance, aggravation, and an overwhelming sense of emptiness and injustice on behalf of the hero I seriously feel bad for him for being stuck with such a bitch.Most obnoxious contemporary romance heroine I ve ever read about I agreed wholeheartedly each time she and her sister called her a selfish bitch who doesn t deserve Lu
Frankly I m sick of the double standards in this series The guys can fuckaround all over place, cheat, fuck their way through hordes of women, treat their h s like absolute crap Jordie Erik to name just 2 of these shmucks and yet everyone forgives every betrayal, any cheating these guys do and love them because they re such great guys NOT At least this one didn t start out a doormat like all the other morons are She left him And rightly so WTF She thought he cheated on her, already he was on morally shaky ground That s not a little mistake, that s a major fucking betrayal And on top of that, even if she tried to tell him at the time people conveniently forget he was a drug addict alcoholic and he remained one for years before he cleaned himself up Was that the environment for a baby Get real people.Drug Addicts who are also Alcoholics don t cleanup overnight, it s a long fucking process and they re in no shape to care for a baby or toddler So everyone can get off their damn high horses already Why now Lucas Seven whole years have passed, why now There was no way he could tell her while standing in her front yard the reason why he didn t look for her after she left Telling Fallon that he was a recovering drug addict and alcoholic did not seem like a good thing to say when trying to

1 starAudiobook terrible narrator the horrible MC had this nasal thing going ARGUH Hated it, but I finished it anywayThe heroine was a snappish, rude, petty, disgusting woman who keep her son from his father because she was angry She lies, to her son to his father, to her friends and she never drops one damn issue no matter how old and stale is is When she wasn t cutting somebody down to nothing she was giggling, yes giggling, this author really like her giggles I don t think one page went without one He giggled, she giggled, they all effing giggled The sex was enough to make cringe, no sexy tingles here ICK the descriptions, the words used Eewwww I just wanted it to stop To think that Fallon the most despicable woman character I ve read could get this great guy to be so devoted to her no matter how much she abuses him, is sick I hated her, hated
By royal bestie decree I m losing my TA cherry.Lisa Jayne is addicted to this author and I m diving in DNF Lucas Brooks knew that Fallon Parker was the one for him, the first night he met her Then he comes back home to her dorm and finds her roommate and best friend there He knows he should leave, but when the roommate wraps her arms around him He couldn t help but hold her closer than he needed to.When her lips touched his, he didn t think, he just reacted, and it was the last thing he remembered This is just unbelievable I just couldn t help it I couldn t control myself It was just a reaction.What sort of a justification is that And as usual, when anything goes wrong, blame it on the intoxication I am so impressed with the ingenuity And of course, even though he knew Fallon was the one, he goes back to the drugs, alcohol and the multitude of women He is such a prize They were such empty words the one I mean who believes that In which society is it okay to go sleeping around with every female you see, when you have already found your one and only And that s the thing, you just don t go around sleeping with everyone else when you have found your one It s not okay.There was also blatant double standard The first night Fallon and Lucas sleep together, she is worried that she is being sluttish Then she tells Lucas that she isn t like this, she doesn t sleep with a guy the first time they meet And to this Lucas replies,
