⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
They met when they were just kids and formed a bond, but circumstances being as they were, Benicio needed to protect Hazel and in doing so he put them in a situation where they were separated. They both had to survive without the other and Benicio “Holy” found a new family, the RBMC of Charleston, WV where he became the chaplain. Hazel had to do unspeakable things to survive, but she has a job and a roof over her head. She has a few friends, but are they really friends?
Holy is tasked with finding his president’s missing niece. When he sees the picture of the woman he is searching for, he knows that the woman that was meant to be his will be again. They have a past and he won’t let Hazel go again, no matter who tries to separate them, he will fight for her with all he is.
This was a tragic story of two people getting a second chance to make a future together and be happy. They both had tough childhoods but when they found each other, their lives were complete. They endured a lot to come out the other side and now they have a chance to be together and be happy, but there is still someone out to hurt them and destroy what they could have. I love the characters of the RBMC, I have yet to read about a chapter that I don’t like, or to read a book in the collection that I don’t like. They all draw me in from the first page and are hard to put down. When I’ve read the last page, I am always left wanting more. I love the authors in this world just as much as I love the characters and I am looking forward to more in the near future. I give this book a 5-star review.
