ALWAYS YOURS, BABY by Airicka Phoenix
May 2015

How could someone so pure want filth like him?

Damon Comb was no stranger to pain, hunger, loneliness, and abandonment. Being given a family that would die for one another didn’t erase six years of torture. It didn’t take away the nightmares. She did. She was everything someone like him should never be allowed. She was goodness and strength and she made him human.

How could someone so broken complete her?

Willa McClain had it all, a family that adored each other, the love of an entire town and a future she worked her butt off to get. But all she wanted was the boy with the sad blue eyes and the crooked smile. He was her best friend, her protector and the only one who really understood her.

How could a love like theirs be extinguished?

But nothing ever lasted forever. Damon knew better than anyone how quickly the tides could change. Can he keep his past at bay before it consumes the only light in his dark world? Can he finally tell Willa the truth, or will his fears tear them apart forever?

How could love so strong ever fail?

I am going to shame myself here and admit that this was my first read by Airicka Phoenix (hangs head). I was really afraid that I was going to be lost in this series by picking up on this book, but Airicka did a very good job of starting this one out and making the reader not feel like they had missed the other books. I love it when Author's do this. I picked up and fell right in love with Willa and Damon. I can see why everyone was waiting on this book in the series. These two make a great couple and have the love that only some can dream of. Damon is so in tune to Willa that he knows her every like and need sometimes before she even does. Will and Damon grew up together and have since moved in together after they have both gone to college. Damon was adopted by Willa's aunt and uncle years earlier after Damon had to go through 6 years of abuse and neglect from his father and not knowing when he would get his next little bite to eat. Damon and Willa have always been close but now that they are living together, feelings have progressed. They have never done anything sexually yet, but there is always the want there.

Willa has a love of photography and Damon has helped her build her collection of equipment. Damon never minds going along with Willa on landscape shoots that she does. He just wants to be with her and make sure that she is taken care of. Damon to some may seen overprotective, but to me I just think that he likes to take care of what he values. Damon is an Alpha Male and sees red when anyone talks about or messes with Willa. His adoptive father and Uncle know that he will do anything he has to in order to protect Willa and that is why they never said a word about Will and Damon moving in together when they did. All of Willa and Damon's brothers, sisters and friends are urging them to make the next move in their relationship. Damon is scared to admit his feelings for Willa because he is afraid that he will run her off.

When Calla steals Willa for a day and gets her a makeover along with a new sexy outfit, Willa just knows that Damon is going to propose to her without them even having dated. Once Willa finds out about what is going on, things move forward in the relationship between Willa and Damon. These two, both new to the sex scene, are sort of cute to see how they discover each other and learn how to pleasure each other in a way that will make you swoon. I love the connection that this build between Will and Damon.

When the story takes a drastic change and things begin to happen that you would never expect, Damon only becomes more possessive of Willa and takes on more responsibility to try and keep her safe. (I don't want to give any spoilers here) I love how the love between Willa and Damon never falters through this whole story!! They are just a very cute couple trying to make their way in life after discovering their feelings for each other after having known each other all their lives pretty much. I love how Airicka makes you feel like you are a part of this family and that they love you as much as anyone else in the family.

This story had a HEA and I am so, so glad. These two so deserved it and so did the whole family. This story gave me all kinds of emotions and made me fall in love with the whole McClain family. I am going to have to go back and read the previous books in this series!!
