We've changed. Darker, damaged and unable to conform. My husband Joshua is dealing with the past the best that he can.....as am I.
Nobody else can understand the language we speak. The trauma we have been through.
But with the pain comes pleasure and happiness is our gift.

Review- 3.75 Stars
First let me say you need to read the other books in the series to know what is completely going.  We didn't see it was a 4th book in the series....so of course I was at a loss for some of the book because I hadn't read the previous ones.  My review is going to be based on my feelings and the writing, as best as I can.

I enjoyed the book and the story.  It made me want to go back and read Natasha and Josh's love story.  This was their moment for a HEA.  It deals with the regret, fears of the past events while trying to move on and be happy.  You see both characters facing their demons for what happened to them and trying to pick up the pieces.  But can they move on?  Has too much damage been done?  Will the dark and damaged pieces make Josh and Natasha crumble?

There is some humor in this story.  I always love humor it adds flavor to stories.  I found myself laughing out loud at their banter and little digs....they totally all love each other.
The interaction between Josh and Tash is electric.  It was at times quite entertaining and dirty.  There is a scene at the bar that is shall we say exhibition style...hot as hell.  Another thing I think I found hot was when Natasha disobeyed Josh, he got all alpha and scary mad, but it was for the right reasons and he was scared....totally understood him.  He was like a caged animal wanting to breakout in that scene....Hot!

TL Swan does a fantastic job opening up her characters.  She makes you want to know more about them.  I found myself intrigued by the drama in the story, not necessarily with Josh and Natasha, but with their family.  Wow...definitely want to read their stories especially Ben and Bridgett!
Each one of the characters has something special and brings it too the table.

So as someone who has never read the story and has seen how it ends...will I go back and see how it all started?   Most definitely!  TL gave me a glimpse of her writing...her story flowed, her characters intrigued me and she made me laugh.  The cover...love it!   3.75-4 Blissful Stars

Excerpt #2
The sun is shining, as I lay on the deck chair, content in a post orgasmic glow. It’s about two in the afternoon and Joshua and I have been married for three blissful days. Today is the first day we have had our families around. Up until now we have been alone and have gone from our bed, to the shower, to the pool and not much farther.
We needed some alone time and I have been fucked every which way and eaten every beautiful kind of food on the planet.
This is happiness. Deep sated happiness.
Joshua is still on edge. He watches me wherever I go, scared to take his eyes off of me in case I disappear again.
We have issues to deal with, both of us. I’m pushing them to the back of my mind for the moment. I can’t deal with them yet. I’m not sure I even want to. How do you deal with the shit that we have been through? The police interviews were extensive and thankfully I have been cleared of any wrong doing. My main mission at the moment is to make Joshua at ease and get some weight back on him. I think he’s lost about ten kilos since I disappeared.
I stand at the kitchen bench and dial Jeston’s number; I need to talk to him. Joshua is running on the treadmill and I have some time to myself. The last time we spoke, he was telling me that he thought he loved me and I was being rude. So much has happened since then and I know he put aside his hate for Joshua to try and help find me. I am so grateful and I owe him a huge thank you.
“Tash” He answers on the first ring, he sounds relieved.
Oh, it’s good to hear his voice. “Jes.” I smile.
“Are you ok?” he breathes.
“I am.”
“Fuck, I thought you were dead.”
“Thankfully not.” I half laugh.
“Tash, it’s so good to hear from you.”
“Thank you so much for helping everyone try to find me.”
“I’m just so glad you are ok.”
The line falls silent and I know I have to tell him.
“I got married Jes. Three days ago in Thailand,” I whisper as I close my eyes.
He doesn’t answer.
“Jes?” I ask. Is he still on the line?
“What do you want me to say?” he breathes.
My heart drops, I do really care for this man. “Congratulations?” I ask hopefully.
“Congratulations,” he replies dryly.
“I love him, Jes. He makes me so happy.”
He hesitates. “He’s a lucky man.”
I smile as my eyes tear up. “Can we be friends? Please?”
“Of course.”
I feel uncomfortable, I know I shouldn’t, but I feel guilty for talking to him when I know he has feelings for me. I should get off the line.
“I will see you next time I come to Australia?” I ask.
“Yeah, sure,” he replies sadly, and I know I have hurt his feelings with my dismissal.
I close my eyes and stay silent.
“Bye, Tash. It’s good to hear from you.”
“Bye, Jes,” I whisper through unshed tears.
We both stay on the line, neither one of us wanting to hang up.
I want to tell him I miss him, but I stop myself, this isn’t helping either of us. I reluctantly end the call.
That was a lot harder than it should have been and I know in my heart that the girl who finally tames Jesten Miller is going to be a very lucky girl.
