Angie is a survivor. Anything you could throw at her, she could overcome.

After her father left her like a pile of unwanted trash, she began fighting. Fighting to build a life. Fighting to keep her child. Fighting to matter.
She thought she had it all figured out.

Then Bowen Race Tannenbaum walks into her life, turning it into a flurry of confusion, hope, and then ultimately despair. He tore down, brick-by-brick, her carefully constructed world, leaving her heart in tatters and longing for more. Such as a happily ever after, something that wasn’t ever going to happen for her. Not when she couldn’t give him what he wanted. He’d break her, and she couldn’t be put back together a second time.

Bowe wasn’t always so jaded, but when you keep drawing a losing hand, it tends to affect a man. He didn’t mean to lash out so carelessly. But he was so over being told no. He was done being lied to. He through with being cheated on.

This time, his heart was getting what it wanted. If Angie wasn’t able to see what he was offering, what was right here in front of her, well then, he’d just have to damn well show her.

My Thoughts

We arrived at the final chapter of the Kilgore fire series which is Bowe story. It’s kind of ironic how he got a possibility of happiness already at the first book but unfortunately fate got in his way. I was waiting for his story even since. And in this case the author created something magical again.

This book started out really strong with the prologue. It was so emotional and presented a lot of possibilities for the storyline. If I wouldn’t like the author works so much just this chapter still would have pulled me in. Although because of this I had really high expectations going in. Unfortunately the story didn’t quite satisfy this notion of mine. It was still really good story but left a lot of questions unanswered, unaddressed. Especially the situation with his father and the animosity with her stepsisters, this could have been a great part of the book but kind of stayed in the background.

Bowe is a great main character. He is not afraid to show or express his feelings; he is sensible and loveable but has a vulnerable side to him as well. He is really open with his feelings and desperate for love. I was kind of feeling sorry for him after his bad experiences with woman. After meeting Angie he constantly pushes her.
Angie stubbornly denies her feeling and attraction towards Bowe because she doesn’t want to get burned again. (She has a really unlucky streak with man) She is also a survivor and a fighter. Her personality is quite different from what I expected based on the prologue and her brief appearance in other book in the series.
They have really great chemistry and they are adorable together. Has some steamy times and scenes in there, too.

The author writing style is really cleared up over the years and I absolutely love it. Her stories have everything in it. Phenomenal characters, interesting plot and simple everyday heroes. Just love it.
