Every book in this series just gets better for me. I have loved every boy that has come out of the Woodland series and with every story I fall just a little harder.
This story we get to know Gray. He is a Marine that doesn’t know what the road ahead should look like. Burned by a cheating, bitch of an ex-girlfriend, he thinks love and commitment cannot exist while he is deployed. Trust being something that was ripped from him and his hardened exterior makes it impossible to penetrate.
Samantha is a young widow, losing her high school sweetheart during his tour with the Army. Existing in a haze, not really experiencing anything around her. No one seems to be able to reach her, she knits, works and goes to school. Until a girl she went to high school with traps her, a beautiful man enters her life and changes everything. Feelings and emotions neither Gray nor Samantha have EVER experienced start taking over, and once they are unleashed everything begins to “unravel.”
I don’t know if I mentioned that Gray is a dirty talking, knows what he is doing kind of man? He may have a hardened heart but he has a sexy vocab that he uses freely..mmmm mmmm good.
Jen Frederick just keeps writing hot, damaged, and sexy Marines beautifully and I am happy to be a fan that goes on the journey with them all! Can’t wait for the next installment..
