Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III and Francesca Leandra Solomon were meant to be. They were so in love that everybody prayed for what they had.

Everything was glorious. They would get married, have children and live a perfect life. She would be a doctor in the emergency room once she finished her doctorate, and he would be a badass Navy SEAL and save people for a living.

But then Luca is deployed across the world, and per military regulations, Frankie isn’t allowed to follow.

They’ve overcome a lot in their short relationship, and they can overcome this, too. Two years was a piece of cake. She’d finish her schooling and wait for him. And when he finally returned home, they would marry.

But two months into Luca’s deployment, the unthinkable happens, and Frankie is left alone and heartbroken, knowing that she’ll have to face the rest of life without Luca at her side.

Fast forward two years, and Frankie is exactly where her fiancé’s father left her, in a pit of despair that she has no hope of ever finding her way out of.

She lives life one second at a time, depressed and alone, hoping tomorrow won’t hurt like today.

She finds a job, moves, and hopes that the nightmares won’t swallow her whole.

But just as she thinks that she’s getting better, one of her nightmares walks through the doors of her ER, and that nightmare has a name.

Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III. In the flesh.

Also healthy and whole, and definitely no longer missing.

Sadly, it only takes her a half a second to realize that the man that left her isn’t the same man that returned.

The old one wanted her. The new one? Well, he’s definitely not interested anymore.

WHAT?????? MY HEAD IS SPINNING

First, it's a lectern NOT a podium...where was the editor before this was published? I've read so many books in my lifetime and edited just as many. This book is a disaster. Unsure why the high marks. Any book that has to be restarted six times because there's so much information missing...Honestly, I had to keep restarting chapters because there was no depth in the dialogue. Dialogue was just as disjointed and ambiguous as the storyline. And what entity that allows gun-carrying would hire someone who doesn't have a memory??? I thought Erin and Teddy could save this...no, they couldn't. I struggle with this author because she goes for quantity of books released instead of quality of books released. It's hard for me to become invested in a book when the author can't even be invested....If I could give negative stars, I would.

THE PLOT TWIST 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥😉

(Luca & Frankie): TRIGGERS: deployment, MIA, PTSD, depression. Grab your tissues and a bottle of wine, the PLOT TWIST GAME IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE! Three people, couple: Luca and Frankie, Luca's best friend: Malachi. They went to school together and the book starts with Luca and Malachi leaving for deployment with the plan that Luca would marry Frankie when he returns. Only nothing ever happens that easily when the military is involved. When the call is received that Luca is M.I.A. but Malachi has returned, Frankie is broken. Malachi is badly burned but he's ready to return to life. The problem is, he has no memory of what happened to him and the life he lives now, doesn't feel like his own. One thing that does feel like his, Frankie. Only that's not right because she belongs to his best friend. I was so captured in this story because not only are we dealing with a veteran coming home and trying to get his life back, we also have Frankie in the other end dealing with some deep depression over Luca and guilt for developing feelings for Malachi all while working her first year in residency at the hospital with a jerk of a boss. So much drama. This is probably one of my favorite books from LLV, and it is a slow burn. Happy reading! 😉❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥💜💜

It’s a beautiful story

I’d like to say the negative review talking about missing pieces in the story well yeah there is… you have to read/listen to all the other series because Luka and Frankie’s story runs through others to fully understand this story. That being said it’s a beautiful, pull on your heart strings story.
