My Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Jesse and Sawyer have a history, but when Sawyer returns to her hometown looking for Jesse and protection will their past prevent him from helping her?
Sawyer moved to Maryland and stayed away from her hometown for twelve years after a tragedy and bullying took place. She needed a fresh start and thought she was good with her choice and where she was, until she wasn’t. Now with a threat hanging over her head and thoughts of her past problems, she runs back home to the one man that she knows can protect her and keep her safe, but will their history prevent that form happening?
Jesse is in a good place; he loves his job with Harper Security Ops, and he has great friends. He steers away from relationships because his heart has only belonged to one woman, but she left him and broke it twelve years ago. When he walks out of the office into the parking lot and sees that woman standing there looking at him, he’s at a loss for words and the past hurt rears its ugly head. Will he let her walk away again, or will he figure out why she left and why she returned, will he protect her and keep her safe?
These stories keep getting better with each character and their soul mates. I love the suspense, the heat, and the characters in these stories. Crushed is no exception. Jesse and Sawyer have to work through the past and open up to each other if they want to move on, or if Jesse will be able to keep Sawyer safe. The story is tragic and haunting, but it’s a great story. I laughed at parts, and I wanted to cry at parts, but ultimately, these two made me happy. I give the book a 5-star review and can’t wait for the next one in the series.
