I loved this story it was great. My heart went out to Mason who loved the freedom of being a lone wolf but was lonely. I also loved how independent Alexis was and she had to fight for that. I feel that Alexis never got over Mason and that is why she was cold with Jensen and didn’t try any other relationship Mason had met to much to her when she was young and she never let go of him. Then he came barging back into her life and then left again. My heart hurt for Alexis. Yeah you could say I felt like I was right there with Alexis and Mason. And that is good writing. The characters were great, the plot was also great as was the writing. I highly recommend.
I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
