From the prologue we are aware of who Mac is and why she wants to find Rex. I found myself waiting for the moment when the truth came out but when it does, I wasn't sure I liked the direction the author took it. The story deals with lots of issues including abuse and drugs. I wasn't sure I liked what the author had happen to Mac/Gia.
Rex can't remember what happened to him as a boy but he dreams often and sees a Therapist to discuss his dreams. He's no manwhore in fact he stays clear of relationships. He doesn't really like sex and only gives in occasionally but that's normally with a prostitute. Therefore, when Mac/Gia and Rex begin a relationship, I did find his sexual prowess a bit much considering he had never been a very sexual person!
I believed in Mac/Gia and Rex's love story but something was lacking and I can't quite put my finger on it. Perhaps it was that all their problems were easily solved or so it seemed and due to the nature of their history, there wasn't as much romance in this story but more so a story of healing. However, I did like this story and I liked Rex and Gia. The characters from the other books appear and there is a surprise twist concerning Raven.
I look forward to the next book in the series.
But you know, I read a LOT and a lot of this genre are very much the same, it's not a criticism, they're my reading bread & butter, absolutely no hardship in paying for them, reading them and reviewing them!
So my point!
Every now and again a character completely blindsides me & Rex did that to me, I snuggle down, glass of wine, JB Salsbury has gifted me a complimentary copy (total squee moment) and BAM ~ WHOA, the prologue has me in tears and I double check I'm reading an UFL fighter book because I wasn't expecting THAT!!!
I was totally gripped and devoured this book in one greedy sitting, Rex is such a beautiful, genuine, tortured soul with demons he cannot even remember but he knows they have defined him and made him the person he is, every day is a struggle, every therapy session is torture but he still manages to shine bright for those around him and when Mac comes into his life he doesn't know she's the girl with all the answers, who held his hand through the horrors of his childhood.
I loved Mac, I loved how hard she tried, I love how much she wanted to right the wrongs even though they were way beyond her.
Rex & Mac's road to destruction crucified me but their road to healing was truly beautiful, the author just seamlessly blended the most horrific of circumstances into something filled with so much hope I truly believe this book is inspirational for anybody even remotely touched by the horrors Rex faced.Read more ›

it was amazing
Read from April 29 to 30, 2016
Gosh, this book had me sobbing my heart out. Those poor kids, what they both went through. Gia throughout everything that happened stayed focussed on one thing, she loved Rex with everything she had. Her whole life from the minute she got free has been about one thing, find Rex love him and give him answers, the truth. Rex has spent his life with nightmares and not knowing why, despite years of therapy he still doesn't have a clue why he is like he is. Abuse of children can come in many forms, but it is still abuse whatever. It has a knock-on effect on their lives, how they grow into adult hood, behaviour, how they live. Trust, love, sex and anger, nightmares, needing 100% control are all side effects of abuse. This story covers all of these issues and more, both Rex and Gia suffered and still suffer. Gia has guilt tagged on to hers, she thinks she let Rex down by not saving him. Their story broke my heart, even when I thought it couldn't get any more heart wrenching it did. I just had to hang on in there with my fingers crossed that the author would get them some peace, let them get their HEA. This though sad and heartbreaking at times, it does have some lighter patches. And when the full information comes to light some surprises are with it. I didn't realise when I read this that it was the third in the series by JB Salsbury, if I had I would have read them first.Read more ›
