Bear and Crystal have a mutual attraction that can’t be denied. So Bear does everything he can to get Crystal to give him a chance, but little does he know that Crystal is holding back for reasons that have nothing to do with him.
I loved Bear, he was sweet, and patient and goes out of his way for everyone. After scarfing for most of his adult life he is finally coming into being able to fight for what he wants for his life. Crystal is very damaged, and keeping secrets from her closest friend… while she thinks she has moved on from her past, she is really starting to work through her issues for real.
This book was very slooowwwww moving. I felt for the characters and their struggles, but it was honestly difficult to keep my attention focused on the story. I felt that not much really happened throughout the story, and what hurdles did pop up were all just wrapped up in a little too perfect of a bow at the end.
That being said, if you enjoy sweet stories, focused on overcoming past trauma and a lot of SLOW sex scenes, you will love this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
