Breaking Brandon, broke me!
I will openly admit I had no interest in the man. He wasn't even a blip on my radar after I read Fate. I wanted to skip him and I did. I jumped into the 5th Street series and now; here I am to shout to the world that EVERY romance book fan must meet, taste, and devour SERGEANT BILLINGS!
Holy mother of intense books, this story is one that demands attention. Brandon Billings go the short straw in life and honestly made the best of whatever situation he found himself in. We saw that what happened to him and Sofie Moreno, and what condition his dad was in when we last saw him. Did we think his situation could get any worse? No. Did it? Heck yes.
"What's past is prologue". Yes, yest it is and Brandon is proof of that. He gets a taste of that quote a few times in his life. The dark haired beauty at the airport with the complicated food order is one. She is a reminder of his past, a past he has come to accept and understand, a past that was not meant to be. Then FATE steps in and that dark haired beauty keeps make and appearance, how does this happen? FATE!! You can't escape it, you can only accept it.
Regina, goodness I love her, demons and all. I effing adore this chick!! Every moment with Brandon was simply what it was suppose to be, real. They had me wrapped around their fingers and eating out of their hands. They truly are one of the sweetest, most sensual, and real couples that are brought together by events they have absolutely no control over.
I tip my hat to Mrs. Reyes, the way she meshes and blends these characters from one story to the next is absolute magic! Seamless, perfection, flawless. We get to visit some of the Moreno's and other characters from that series. I, of course, am biased when it comes to Romero, Manny and Max and will say now that every scene they were in was AWESOME!!
The book has some spectacular suspenseful parts and they had me white knuckling my reader and had me at the edge of my seat. I loved those heart pounding moments and had to go back and re-read them s l o w l y for added effect. The book was truly what a beautiful true love story is supposed to be (in my opinion).
The ending was simply perfect. What FATE brings together don't even attempt to fight. You will never survive.
oh oh oh...I want to go into his closet, OMG the goodies he was hiding in there. Oh an Tia Benny, we all have a Tia Benny, her short appearance had me laughing.
Elizabeth Reyes, lady, you have a very beautiful way of telling a story and I am hooked!!!!
FAN FOR LIFE
