A story of love, loss, and the impact one person can have on so many lives. A story of how a person can overcome the darkness of their past and grow to be a good person and share their light with those around them. Showing that it’s a choice to see the light out of the darkness.
Seven, a man who has demons, but is so much more than what you expect. He’s a crazy Mafia Capo, but he is also a loving, caring, kind man who will always be a hero to his daughter and Isla. A broken man that lives in the dark of his past. He has a soft side, but one little girl and one woman show him there is light to be found in his life.
Isla, a pediatrician who gets pulled into Seven’s life because he wanted a normal life for his daughter Nia. She claims to be an emotional woman, which she is, but she too, is so much more than what you expect. She’s strong, caring, and determined. She will go to the ends of the earth to protect children and those that she cares about.
Nia, a little girl who has seen too much for her young age. She’s reserved, quiet, and yet, she has so much love to share. She is the one who brings Seven and Isla together and she is the one person that they will protect at all costs.
I felt all of the emotions that the characters in this story felt while reading it. The pain the characters were going through, the sadness, the joy, the love, I felt it all. I loved it and wanted so much more.
The characters in these books, this is a standalone story from Roses & Thorns Series, evolve and grow so much in each book. Each one has grown in each story I’ve read, and I love all of the characters. The women are strong, they’re fighters, and they’re soft where they need to be. They fight for what they believe in as well as for the men they love, and the women who have come into their family. The men are ruthless, tough, and yet when it comes to their family, they are so different from what they show the outside world.
I give this story a 5-star review and so look forward to the next book by Bry Ann. I loved the ending of this story, it was perfect in every way.
