Publisher's Summary

Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after in each other... or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love?

Lacey has a strength inside her that comes alive with the things she's most passionate about. She's a fighter and a survivor, and she has everything she's ever wanted except the one thing that matters most - love.

Karson is doing the one thing he loves most - playing hockey for the Assassins - yet he knows regret. He knows his life has been missing the one thing he walked away from so many years ago: Lacey.

Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will the tether still attaching their souls allow them to face the past, present, and a possible future?

Contains mature themes.

Karson and Lacey

I loved the book and I love the audio. Lucy Malone does a great job in bringing this book to life. I wish there were more guys like Karson. It took a while, but I'm glad Lacey finally got the courage to live without the ones who were trying to run her life. Great read and a great listen!

Moving, emotional story!

This audiobook in the Nashville Assassins series was full of emotion and angst. The hero Karson and the heroine Lacey met in college and fell so deeply in love they knew they were meant to be together forever. Karson played hockey during college and Lacey’s father was his coach. He was in line to be first draft and they were excited. Lacey is a breast cancer survivor and her mother died from breast cancer. When it was time for the draft, Lacey’s father called Karson into his office and forces him to break up with her by holding his career over his head.
Then we go nine years into the future and they meet accidentally in Chicago, where she lives and he’s there to play a hockey game. It’s like they’ve never been apart. What they didn’t anticipate is how manipulative Lacey’s father would get, how underhanded he would become in trying to keep them apart. I really hated her dad in this story!
Can they see forever when they have so many obstacles and problems thrown at them. I loved Karson so much, while Lacey was really an insecure person. Narration was very well done. Probably my favorite in this series so far.

teenage fairytale or misogyny laced as romance

the story is riveting, romantic, sexy, but the volume of misogyny is hard to miss.

Not my favourite in the series

I have to say I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other books in this series I just felt that Karson was a bit soft for my liking but it was still a good listen.
