Broken hearts aren’t just for the weak. Sometimes it’s the strongest ones who fall the hardest.

Evan didn’t need love, and honestly, he didn’t want it. Every time he opened his heart, he got hurt. If he learned one thing in the military, it was how to survive. To do that, he had to run. But before he could, he lost himself to someone who never should have been there in the first place. Now, her blonde ringlets and the feeling of her body pressed to his still haunt his dreams.

Kayla wanted nothing to do with men after her fiancé not only left her for someone else, but also stranded her at a wedding reception. All she had to comfort her was a few glasses of wine and the quietness of the starry night sky. She wanted to be alone, to hide herself from the world, however, under a gazebo she sought solace from her heartache and found herself in the arms of another man.

When their worlds collide years later, will either of them be able to trust what their hearts are telling them?

Anna’s Four Review on behalf of KFF

This is the third book in the Love Ever After series that features Kayla and Evan (these two were secondary characters in the previous books), and can be read as a standalone although I would suggest that you read the first two books just to get their full background.

Evan was Isa’s (Theron’s grandmother) bodyguard/assistant and when she passed away, Theron became his responsibility too. When something happened in the previous books it was Evan who got his act together and saved the day. Evan’s steadfast loyalty and bravery made him the perfect go-to person for Theron and Eve. His one night with Kayla at the wedding reception started a fire in his heart that won’t go away. After seven years of absence he comes back. Will Kayla give him a second chance even though he left her that night?

Kayla is Eve’s best friend, a strong minded young woman, independent, funny and sassy. When she broke up with her fiancé Paul, she turned to Evan for one night of passion and then he disappeared. Now that Evan is back is she willing to take the risk of getting hurt again?

I have read the previous books and although Theron and Eve’s story was full of drama I wasn’t keen on their character development. However, this third book featuring Kayla and Evan made me feel more emotionally invested; I love heroines who are tough and keeps on getting up even when they are kicked to the ground. With Evan’s background as ex-military he is proven to be one not to mess with. This is a very well written narrative told in alternating points of view. A second chance romance interlaced with intrigue and drama provided by Kayla’s ex-fiancé and her dad, both of which she could do without in her life. I couldn’t put this book down I was drawn right in from the first page until the last chapter; the added bonus is you also get to read about Eve and Theron. But to be honest my favourite couple are Kayla and Evan, their story is too adorable you don’t want to miss it!

EXCERPT ~ ©Amber Lacie, 2018

“No. I caught him texting some chick outside when he stepped out for a cigarette. He was licking his lips and had a weird look on his face while staring down at his phone. I thought maybe it was something for me. You know, for later? I peered over his shoulder and saw ‘Candace’ lit up on his phone. When I asked him who she was he told me––and I quote, ‘The best fucking lay I’ve ever had. Way better than you’ll ever be.” Leaning her head back against my chest, she took a deep breath. “Then he turned around and just stared at me. I mean, I knew he was drunk––fuck, we both were, but to say something like that…. How long has he hated me, Evan?” “Baby, no––don’t think that. He doesn’t hate you. No one could hate you.” Fuck. Two things registered in my mind in that moment. The first was how badly I wanted to kill Paul. The other was that I had just called her baby. 

“You’re sweet. You really are, Evan, but you’re a shit liar. You only say things like that to people you hate. I told him we were over and to call his bitch for a ride. He laughed and said he already had. I just stood there in shock, staring at him. The next thing I knew a black sedan was pulling up with some skinny bitch in the driver’s seat. Just like that he was gone and so was my future,” she finished, tears beginning to flow once again. 

Fucking prick. If I ever see him again, I will make him pay. “He’s an asshole. He doesn’t deserve you. No one does.”

Meet Amber

I grew up in Chicagoland and now live in quaint little town in Northwest Indiana. I have two beautiful children and husband who worships the ground I walk on (or at least he should). I’ve always loved reading. Now I’m expanding that love into writing and look forward to producing many books.

I’m a huge geek and proud of it. Books are my life. I love reading, especially fiction. It doesn’t matter the genre or age group. I will read anything from comics to novels. I read at least one book a day. If it wasn’t for my kindle, my living room would be overflowing with books.
