Wow, Ms. Armstrong really improves here…again. I didn’t think this series needed improving – it reads just fine – but this is a standout in an already outstanding m/m romance series.
I’m not writing a full review here, not because it doesn’t deserve it, but because I want to get right to finishing book 4 and to writing its review. I will make a few comments though.
"I am who I am because you allow me to be. You let me be strong. Brave. and good." Aaron's tone implored him to believe the truth in his words. "You're the angel here, Greg. Not me"
Because you allowed me inside your hurt and let me show you how to love yourself, I learned how to love too."
The love is deeper, more mature and more meaningful. Much more emotional. The struggles have come full circle and have to be conquered once and for all. Getting to watch that happen,
The Blurb: Weddings are stressful under the best of circumstances, which this certainly isn’t. Following the release of his debut movie, No Apologies, Greg Falkner is working hard to be a better man to fiancé, Aaron Blake, despite his baser instincts. When their alma mater contacts Greg and asks him to serve as their celebrity master of ceremonies, for an upcoming charity event, he grudgingly accepts at Aaron’s urging.
Aaron admires the new man Greg has become, yet craves the old independence of his lover. He’d love to strike a compromise in the relationship and hopes that returning to their beginning will help Greg lay some personal demons to rest.
Neither man anticipates the violence that will befall one of them, potentially changing both lives in unimaginable ways. What emerges from the darkness, through frustrations and determination, is true deep love.
• Note:Warning: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: male/male sexual practices.
The commitment becomes completely solidified, but not without struggles, angst and pain first. It’s a pleasure to see the development of this relationship.
