A deafening blast. Pain. Silence.
That was all it took for an IED to end my life as I knew it. The man I was shattered in a hard wave of sound and debris that rained down on me like death itself.
And six months later, after waking up to an inescapable hell, I found myself wishing that death had found me.
Miranda Jacobs swept into my life like a cool breeze on a smoldering day.
With her smart mouth and her ridiculous jokes, she brought me back to life one minute at a time.
Turned out time wasn’t on our side.
Screams. Twisted metal. Silence.
And I’d lost it all again—only this time, I had no one to blame but myself.

2. Strong sassy heroine
3. Just the right touch of humor
This book checks off everything on my list for an amazing romance book. There were so many amazing quotes in this book that will stay with me for a long time. Geez and that name, Holden Steel! Seriously I’m in love with the name alone.
Holden is retired ex- military and he is broken both physically and emotionally, traumatized by war. He is essentially a big grouch with a constant scowl on his face. Mind you, a really sexy big grouch. He does not interact with anyone including his neighbor Miranda who develops some stalker tendencies and watches him constantly through her window.
Their paths eventually cross and I loved how Miranda, with her bubbly personality, pulled Holden out of the cave he was hiding. I loved Miranda! She was a girl after my own heart. She lived life to the fullest. She ate what she wanted despite her mother constantly telling her she needed to lose weight. She was compassionate and looked out for those in need. She was definitely a talker which made her initial interactions with the silent brooding Holden hilarious! This was her mantra:
“No regrets, only happiness.”
Holden and Miranda are the book couple you never want to stop reading about. Their witty banter and chemistry is addicting! Let’s not even talk about the sexiness that is Holden Steel when he finally gets unleashed. Seriously hot!
The journey of Holden and Miranda’s love story was not easy but they endured and got their HEA. Amie Knight describes their love perfectly:
“Truly. Madly. Deeply”
Amie Knight has been a reader for as long as she could remember and a romance lover since she could get her hands on her momma’s books. A dedicated wife and mother with a love of music and makeup, she won’t ever be seen leaving the house without her eyebrows and eyelashes done just right. When she isn’t reading and writing, you can catch her jamming out in the car with her two kids to ’90s R&B, country, and showtunes. Amie draws inspiration from her childhood in Columbia, South Carolina, and can’t imagine living anywhere other than the South.
