My thoughts 💭 💭💭
First! I love Nora Roberts.
This is probably my favourite book of hers.
Trigger warning: domestic abuse and violence
Nora Roberts captures her readers from the moment you open the book. There’s no doubt about that. She’s brilliant!
Darby starting afresh in a new town. After getting a feel of the place she decides this is where she’ll start over.
Zane Walker is one hell of a guy. He’s been through hell and back and he’s come out stronger.
This book is about new beginnings, leaving the old life and starting over. It speaks in detail of violence and abuse from childhood to adulthood. Are we ever free from a past that was filled with violence? Well read Zane’s story and you’ll see that you can come out better and stronger.
Obviously there was romance and suspense rolled into one. You can always find a book of Nora Roberts with a bit of everything in it.
Loved it! Loved it! Loved! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
