***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Shayna Chastain’s marriage crashed and burned. She walked away, bruised, but not broken, without so much as a glance over her shoulder at her philandering husband. Oh, his betrayal stung, but Shayna has experienced loss before. She knows it comes for you when you least expect it.
Now feeling a bit past her prime and wanting a new direction in life, Shayna reawakens the woman she remembers being before marrying Frank Chastain. She wants a different life from the one she’s been living. However, she doesn’t have much support from family and friends who think she’s made a regrettable decision.
Frank Chastain, Mt. Pleasant’s steely real estate mogul, begrudgingly signed the dissolution papers Shayna forced on him. He never wanted to divorce the love of his life. Always believed they could work it out.
She’ll be back.
He’s sure of it.
Now more than ever, he needs that to be true. Events have conspired in his life that could blow open the secret he’s been hiding. He needs Shayna to help him seal it shut, but it may already be too late.
Sean Parker owns an Italian restaurant that has become Shayna’s oasis, giving her respite from the swirling storm around her. Their attraction is instant, but the fallout will last a lifetime. Sean’s smooth, handsome exterior hides an unsavory past that he walked away from years ago and has no intention of revisiting, or discussing.
If it’s really in the past, is it even anyone’s business? Sean sees no point in being an open book. What matters is right now. And right now, there’s no way in hell he’s going to lose the only woman he’s ever loved. The only woman he can’t live without.
But life doesn’t always let us keep our secrets. And these secrets are about to explode to the surface with far-reaching, deadly consequences.
How well do you know the people you love?
Even the one’s you’ve known most of your life…
**Mature themes and content for 18+**
I loved this book from start to finish. The story was a great mix of romance and suspense. It was about a woman’s recent separation with her husband (of 25 years) that takes a ton of twists and turns, including Shayna realizing that her husband wasn’t the man that she thought he was. The events are so unpredictable and unexpected as she meets a man (that she instantly knows is the one for her) however, this new love sets her and her loved ones on a path filled with violence, sex, emotion, drama, intrigue and secrets that will change them in truly unexpected ways. This story is rich with tension, suspense and thrilling scenes that keep you locked in. The characters are older which I loved (not everyone is 21 or wants to re-live being 21). The main “growing” points of their lives has already occurred and that are mature and not spending every moment in a club, fighting, or looking for adventure, much of their life has already happened to the 3 main characters. The characters are strong and real and relatable to an older, more mature set of readers not always looking for a book that is predictable based on growing up.
The author does a great job with story development, character development and there is just enough romance that you are satisfied but not too much that you are skipping over it to get on with the story. The plot just flowed and kept the reader guessing. The characters are flawed and have realistic actions which I loved as well. It made them more enjoyable to the everyday reader. This was my first book by Robyn Roze but it will not be my last. Make sure that you add this one to your TBR list and you won’t be sorry!! It’s a great ride from start to finish!
