Book 3 in the Kingston family series, and Xander does not disappoint. I always look forward to a new book from Carly and especially when it involves some of the most intriguing families. The Kingstons are a complex family with many dynamics to explore and Xander's story is no exception.
Xander is an ex-Marine, injured in the line of duty, he now spends his time wrapped up in his writing. Sasha is the woman who he thought he would spend his life with until youth and her need to establish her Hollywood career drove them apart. Xander knew with his way of life he needed quiet and solitude to recover from mental and physical injuries sustained in service. Sasha's life was not going to hold those things, she was a rising star, on her way to extreme fame with a promising future that he couldn't be part of. So he let her go and Sasha due to pressure from her mother to not let a man dictate her future or career and Xander was just going to hold her back.
Now several years later, Sasha has obtained the fame her mother sought for her and had the career every young Hollywood starlet would want. Only she was not satisfied, she felt she gave up too much for her fame. Along comes the role of a lifetime starring in Xander's latest project. His newest book is being made into a movie and Sasha wants to be the star. In order to get in to character she must confront her past and make peace with the man she's never stopped loving and walked away from. Xander isn't prepared for seeing the one woman he loved and had to let go. Now the time has come for both of them to face the mistakes they made back then and determine if there is a way to make a future together without compromising what the other wants. Add in a crazy stalker who is determined to make Sasha his and the protective Xander stands up to make sure nothing happens to his love.
This is a wonderful journey of second chance and intrigue as well as the amazing chemistry and of these two characters. Along with catching up with other Kingston family members and the introduction of new characters for the future and this book is one the best!
