⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
He hides his past and his pain behind humor. None of his friends, not even his best friend knows about his past or the trauma he’s lived through. Only one person knows and that’s because he is the only man that Lucas Grant can talk to. His father, a man that he connected with after the pain and trauma he endured while growing up with his mother. The military kept him away from Lucas but he’s now in his life and there for moral support and to show him the love he so deserves. Lucas can’t show affection and only has one-night stands, so when he meets his best friends, girlfriend and her best friend and roommate, he knows that he has to stay away from her. However, these two are too much alike and the steam, attraction, and obsession is too much.
Paisley Drake is an artist and a flirt. When she meets Lucas, she instantly begins to flirt with him and things escalate, but when he freaks out on her more than once, she’s done with him, or is she. When he comes back and opens up to her, she can’t help but take him back and give him another chance. Until the final straw. Then she leaves and has her own secrets.
I loved this story, however, is does have triggers, so be sure to check on those before you read this book. It’s tragic, dark, and very emotional, but it’s so worth the emotional roller coaster to read Lucas and Paisley’s HEA. I look forward to more in this series and I give this book a 5-star review.
