Publisher's Summary

It's not about your first love, but the first love you fight for. The fifth book in the scorching hot New York Times best-selling "Marked Men" New Adult series.

After his first broken heart, Rowdy St. James decided he was going to do everything in his power to live up to his nickname: life was all about the good times. But when a ghost from the past appears, she makes him question everything he thought he knew about love.

Salem Cruz grew up in a house with too many rules - and no fun allowed. She left it all behind as soon as she could, but she never forgot the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who'd been in love with her little sister. Now, Salem is determined to show Rowdy he picked the wrong sister all those years ago.

As their relationship heats up, Rowdy starts to let his heart go - until the one person who could drive them apart shows up again.

Six stars if possible

What does Alexandra Marcuse and Cody Hammersmith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Love their Southern drawls ❤️

Any additional comments?

Book 5 in The Marked Men series and one of my favourites. This tells the story of Rowdy and Salem. Both work in the tattoo shops and both have a shared past. After 10 years apart they finally find heir way back to each other, only to find that they are still struggling with their past issues. Again, we find out all the comings and goings from all The Marked Men and their families. I love Rowdy's faith in life and their relationship, and his everything happens for a reason approach. Another beautiful and thought provoking love story with the ups and downs of life getting in the way.
