Review - 

Addison is an author who I have kept up with during my TWK (time with Kindle) I have always enjoyed her books so I knew this was going to be something that would attract my attention and I am so glad I signed up for the blog tour.

Addison has a great way with words, her books are always an easy thing to pick up and read and the world she creates is always clear, precise and enjoyable - This book is no exception. 

Yes, this story does have a love triangle but not like we have seen before and I loved it - The emotion, the passion, the secrets and the lies all leave you wanting and needing more and thankfully more is what you get. Lee has to choose between the two great loves in her life - who she also happens to be married to (oh my) - the situation and range of emotions the characters feel effect you as a reader and that is always the sign of a good writer.

"There’s a sweetness to Max. If I let him, I’m sure he’d solve every problem on the planet for me, including my spousal deficiency. But he can’t bring back Mitch. He can’t be Mitch. Some problems are just too big."

What happens when the man you loved, the father of your child walks back into you life after 5 years - 5 years of thinking he is dead. What happens when you have already moved on with the one person your husband could not stand? This book will make you want to scream, yell, cry and turn it off completely at points - But somehow you keep reading because you have to know what is going to happen next.

All I can say before reading this book is to have a nick supply of chocolate at the ready and be prepared for a roller coaster ride like no other - I am serious one minute everything is going well then BAM you are hit with something so unexpected that you will need a moment to adjust.

"The three of us had emerged from Mitch’s captivity damaged beyond recognition, and now nothing will ever be the same"

This is Addison's first attempt at New Adult and I think it is brilliant and defiantly something I would recommend to friends as something they need to add their TBR lists. 

4/5 stars.

Author Biography

Addison Moore is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author who writes contemporary and paranormal romance. Previously she worked as a therapist on a locked psychiatric unit for nearly a decade. She resides on the West Coast with her husband, four wonderful children, and two dogs where she eats too much chocolate and stays up way too late. When she's not writing, she's reading.

Mitch lands on top of me, straddling me with his knees. The room glows like a candle with just enough light for me to see his beautiful face.

My fingers float to the scars on his chest. I can’t ignore the welts rising up all over his body. I’m so frightened for him, but I’m thankful he’s here. I’m glad God figured out a way to pull him out of my heart and land him miraculously in the western hemisphere. I’m so glad this fantasy has taken shape in flesh and bones, even if it is just one long dream. I glance down at him lost in his lust with his lips fused just below my belly. We both know this isn’t real. We both know he’s long since dead and things like this just don’t happen. It’s hard to know what’s up and what’s down, what’s real and what isn’t when you’re still trying to pick the pieces of your heart off the ground.
