Kim Hampton is the director of a community center, a woman who lives to help others while trying to forget a troubling past. As far as she's concerned, a relationship with any man is a horrible idea. But a relationship with Leland McClain? That's just out of the question.

So steamy and so sweet

All I’ll say is this book was so much better than the first one and the first was AMAZING! This author has my money from now on. She has an official fan in me and look forward to purchasing all of her book from now on since I have already bought the ones available here on audiobook! The narration was amazing as well. Judging by the names they are African and as a Nigerian I am stanning for them both! If your like me and grew up reading Zane books (way early than I should have been) you’ll really enjoy these stories! Ge sure to read in order!

Took me a while to finish

I was excited to read this book after Book 1, but I found myself rolling my eyes wondering why the main character made bad choice after bad choice. In fact, I put the book down for a few months only to just finish. The author tells a good enough story, but the thought that this woman has to be saved by someone time and time again didn’t sit well with me.

Boring

After struggling to listen to the first book, I decided to give the second book a chance.... why did I do that?!?! I just can't take the female narrator, and, the story was overall Boring! This is most definately where my journey with this series ends!

Survivors are warriors

Reading this book reminded me alot of Long shot by Kennedy Ryan because of the parallel worlds of domestic abuse, there being someone who comes i to the heroines life and changes it for the better bow to save them to help them see that Love is true, love comes without fists and bruises, love comes without toxic family members not interfering for the worst and never standing up for you, love comes to you beautiful, and bare and free and nurturing and is patient as it is reciprocated.

Lelland and Kim are such strong characters And i loved them so much because he was there to pick her up when she feels, when she felt insecure and ws a shield when she wasn't sure she had it in her to fully face the same toxic cycles of her abusive son who became just like her previous abusive partners and her negligent mother.
i wanted to see more of her and her grandmothers bond.
I love the embrace she found in his family and her friends. I loved her backbone all through but always wished that she drew a line with her son somewhere. There's a place of idolising the maternal bond that played her achilies as is other women and that broke my heart. I hope more people out there talk about this and hope to change the picture.
