In this part of Hadley and Reed's story we are back on that emotional rollercoaster ride. Especially after that cliffhanger in the previous book. I wanted these two to find their way back to each other, but wasn't sure it was possible after all that Reed had done to destroy it. Yes I still wanted to kick him a time or two. I so loved that Hadley was so strong and that meant she could let Reed back into her heart. The best part was that Reed was ready to fight to be there. More than anything in his life, he wanted her. There road back isn't an easy one and there is a whole lot of baggage to work through, but I wanted that for them.

I thought I knew what broken was, after all I was the definition of it.
I thought I mastered the art of recovering from a broken heart; a broken soul.
I thought I would find a new type of strength in the moments of my insane weakness.
But when Reed Collins became the only thing that mattered to me, when he became my beginning, middle and the enviable end, I would never be able to find any strength, because I gave him all of mine.
I was too willing because I loved him. Without reason, without thinking, without fear of consequences, because that’s what loving someone madly really means.
Minutes, days, months went by after I left but no amount of time eased the pain of him not being there. No amount of time could ever lessen my love, my need, my want for him.
Now I’m back, having to face every truth I ran away from. Lies were told. But even after all the indescribable pain he caused, I still love him. Still want him. Still breathe for him.
I’m starting to wonder if that will ever change.
Hadley and Reed's story is an emotional rollercoaster ride which broke my heart for her. I wanted to give him a kick or two for not being the guy worthy of her. It doesn't begin that way. At first they are so much in love and things are going so well for them. Then Reed makes some seriously bad decisions and ruins everything shattering Hadley's heart in the process. Then there's that whole cliffhanger that had me wondering if they would ever find their way back to each other again.

Reed "Riker" Collins is my story... The beginning, middle, and end.
Our love was intense, emotional, and raw, the kind that sticks with you forever. I thought we had it all, the thing that would make us last... Until we didn’t.
Reed promised me forever, and I believed him with everything in me. But it's never that easy. Without a second thought, Reed left me to follow his own dream of becoming a professional fighter. Five years of going through life without him has left me only drifting through life, never truly living, leaving me more damaged than ever before. But then, Reed walks back into my life when I needed him the most. Will I be able to forget all the pain he caused? Will he be able to heal the emotional wounds his love had left me with?
Can I fight to start? Or will I end up forfeiting it all just to make it go away?
