Re read – upgraded from 4-5 stars!
I loved this book the first time around!
I loved it even more the second time around.
Tanner and Rocky had been in love 18 years ago – until Rocky left with no warning and refused to talk to Tanner about it, or speak to Tanner ever again.
At the beginning of the story, Tanner who is now a divorced PI with 2 teen sons, had been shot while working a case, and Rocky could not keep away.
This story is told entirely in Tanner’s POV, and here it worked!
He was going in Blind, into a relationship with Rocky again, not knowing what had driven her away, not knowing how to navigate the minefield that was getting back to them being a couple again, and we were walking that path with him.
We knew his heartbreak, we knew his love, we knew his regrets, we knew his hope and we knew his fear that it would all happen again and he would be left alone!
Tanner Layne, he is a man who made mistakes, and has paid for them, but he is a beautiful beautiful man, trying to do his best now and have his love.
It is very cleverly written, you can feel it building, knowing something is going to happen, and Rocky is beginning to feel what it was that made her leave years ago.
There is a lot going on in this book, with regards to what Tanner is working on, and on the first read, this was fine, but on the second read, I found it a lot easier to keep track of and connect all the dots.
And it goes without saying, as with every KA book, an excellent set of secondary characters, who you care about and love.
