Synopsis

Don’t let yesterday’s regrets control your future.

Rocked by her husband’s infidelity and subsequent divorce, Emmy Bennett is doing her best to keep her children’s lives steady and not repeat the mistakes of her past. Selling her jewelry to pay the mortgage seems like a great idea until she finds herself face-to-face with a gun.

Retired Navy SEAL, Ed Jackson, is captivated by Emmy the first moment he sees her. Her nervous mannerisms get his attention, but when he saves Emmy from an attempted robbery, he discovers that maybe he’s pulled to her for reasons other than his curiosity.

I received this book for free from Authors in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

“Who is this woman?”  

Emmy’s recent past has been filled with a large degree of disappointment and heartache. Add to that the burden of being her family’s sole provider, and one can see why she would be reluctant to bring more into her already overwhelming life. To onlookers, she has it all, and she feels no need to disparage those ideas. 

“I’m not ready for this.  I’m not ready for you.”

Jackson is a soon-to-be retired SEAL. He oozes confidence and sex appeal. He has a plan for what he is going to do at this stage in his life. But sometimes the most well developed plans don’t work out. 

Their meeting begins in passing, but soon he turns into her unknown hero. They have reluctant sparks that shouldn’t be able to lead to anything serious.  He has his path and she has hers, each decidedly making changes in their lives for the better.  We learn of Jackson and Emmy’s past and present. She is reluctant to have any type of relationship with a man. He is drawn to her like no other woman. And so their unlikely relationship begins. Such a sweet attraction and pull that leads to more interest and mystery. 

Tamra Lassiter did a great job setting the scene for the story. She gave wonderful descriptions of the people and places, which made me feel like I was actually there and present with the characters.  I enjoyed being able to witness the intricacies of Emmy and Jackson’s lives, as individuals and as a couple. Divorce can lead to a romantic dead end for some people, but the way in which the author tackled that stigma made me smile for all divorcees. I loved that Emmy’s children and Lucy were present in the story, as it added to the quaint, family feel that contributed to the overall genuineness of the story. I am happy to have been given the opportunity to discover this new-to-me author, and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
