Wow, another one to add to my “top reads of 2020” list.

I have been dying to get my hands on this book ever since I finished the first book, The Life That Mattered. The previous book left us with the mother of all cliffies and so I couldn’t wait to know what was gonna happen next.

Thankfully the author pushed up the release date by a mile and so the wait for this second book isn’t/wasn’t that long. That said…when you are waiting for something you really want, every minute seems to last for an hour 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

Now as much as I would like to spill my guts right now, and tell you everything I know (still riding on a high)… I won’t. These books should definitely be read spoiler-free. Coming from me… someone who checks all spoilers… that is saying something, so please heed my advice.

Like I have said before, this book isn’t just about 2 people. It’s about 2 couples4 friends, whose lives have become so interwoven, that it is almost impossible to separate them. This time around, we also get 4 POV’s which I appreciated immensely. It really helped me understand everyone’s mindset. It made me sympathize with the characters more, which I needed, believe me.

I can honestly say that I devoured this book and I am still riding a high. I loved the characters but I also hated them. I am still processing.

I was hooked from the moment I read the prologue of the first book. Ever since I’ve read that part I wanted to know what, why, how, and when. I finally got my answers… even if they did break my heart a little.

Thankfully the author did not leave me hanging and I got the full closure I needed. Many tears were shed while reading this story, but I got to close it with a smile on my face 😉

I highly recommend this Duet and it is definitely going on my “Top Reads” list.



I jumped, shutting my computer, and glanced up at Graham paused at the threshold to my room, loosening his red tie. He always looked handsome in a suit and that red tie I gave him for his birthday. I didn’t expect to see him. My assistant said he was at the Governor’s Mansion. I rarely stayed there, but he used it as an occasional “getaway.” Probably from me. So when she told me he was there, I made the assumption (actually hoped) he’d decided to stay the night and get some work done.

“It’s not even seven.” I tucked my bare feet beneath me, still wearing my navy skirt suit and silk scarf—my long hair in loose curls down my back and around my shoulders just like Graham liked it. 

He took calculated steps toward me, completely untying his tie, letting it drop to the floor before working the buttons to his starchy white shirt. I tried to forget my internet search, not that it mattered because I couldn’t hide anything from my husband. He elicited a warring of emotions from me. An icy tingle slithered along my spine, making every muscle rigid, while the warmth in my heart fed on the way my pulse reacted to his proximity, the way it always had done. That never changed. It was how I knew we weren’t broken.

“Did you miss me?” He smirked, shrugging off his shirt, revealing his defined torso—abs for days beneath a thin smattering of dark hair on his chest.

I was the envy of so many women. Every day I reminded myself of that.

“Nice scarf.” He knelt in front of the chair.

I returned a nervous smile, hoping the man before me was the man I loved. Graham untied the scarf, sliding it from my neck as slowly as he’d slid off his tie just seconds earlier. The scarf floated to the floor. Gentle fingers swept my hair off my shoulders, exposing my neck.

With the same feather’s touch, he traced the bruises. “It’s nothing …” His lips replaced his fingers, kissing my neck. “You’re fine. Right?”

I wanted to believe him. Could denial become truth if we just believed hard enough?

“I’m fine,” I murmured, closing my eyes.

“Want me to show you how much I missed you?” he whispered next to my ear.

Was he asking me for permission? Governor Graham demanded me. Pre-marriage, pre-Governor Graham asked … begged me to surrender to him.
