Landry Hill was his girl. his everything. His high school sweetheart. His first kiss. His first and only love. His old lady and wife Then one day he does something monumentally stupid. And she walks away knowing she’ll never come back. Fast forward five years, and he’s still just as in love with her now as he was when she left. The only problem is that she’s moved on with her life, found a new man, and seemingly forgotten him. Then there’s Wade—stuck in the same awful place where she abandoned him. The only thing he has left is his job as a police office and the Bear Bottom MC. Just when they both think things can’t get any worse, life kicks them both in the teeth, and Landry finds out really quick that the only person she can depend on is the one that let her walk away. With understanding comes a deal. One that Landry has no hope of ever breaking free from, and one Wade will do everything in his power to make a reality. But one thing is still certain. The force that split them apart is still out there. And there’s no hope of escaping fate.
When you have everything and then let it go, you realize just how dumb you can be. That's the case with both characters in this book, Wade and Landry. I liked Landry right from the start because of how she chose to hold her ground and not let guilt and her family manipulate her decisions when she became an adult. Lord knows they used her enough as a child. I wasn't a fan of Wade's at the beginning, but he grew on me rather quickly as the pages flew by. This story has some emotional moments due to the subject matter, but as you'll find with all of Lani's writing there's a lot of humor intertwined too. I give this one 5 stars.
