Summary: After a not-so-wonderful young adulthood—shuffled from one foster home to another—Lena Benton had hoped marriage would be her ticket to happiness. Wedded a year after high school graduation, Lena was certain she’d found her knight. But when Troy Harington’s true colors surface shortly after their glorious day of elopement, things aren’t quite as rosy as Lena had envisioned. When an unforeseen event turns ugly, all she can do is ... run!
But does she run far enough?
Jackson Beaumont prides himself on being a nature-loving, guitar-strumming carefree sort of guy, known for his eagerness to help injured animals find their way back into the wild. When Lena Benton walks into his bar, he’s once again swept off his feet with concern and desire to help the wounded. Will he risk having his heart torn apart again when the memory of the fawn he rescued as a child resurfaces?
18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.
This will be a two book series, but both books in The Beaumont Brothers can be read as a standalone.
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second book by the amazing Susan Griscom that I have had the privilege of reading. And again she surpassed my expectations and blew this out of the park. Despite this book having darker subject matter, it was also lighthearted and a romantic read. While reading this novel I had a roller coaster of emotions. I even teared up a bit. And I liked how it showed the difference between a good relationship and a bad one.
Lena was such a damaged character that i couldn't help but to love her. I wanted her to escape and become independent. I'm glad everything worked out for her. Jackson is a great guy. I'm so glad he helped Lena with her more than one aspect in her life. Rufus was my favourite character because much like Jackson he is a protector. I'm really curious to learn more about Brodie, I can't wait until book two.
This was very well written book that keeps the readers heart pounding. I would recommend it to New Adult lovers.
