Rachel Kelly has traveled a long, hard road in her journey back to her husband, Ethan, and the Kelly family. Now, as she and Ethan are poised to move into their new home, safe behind the walls of the Kelly compound, Rachel wonders if she’ll finally be free of the ghosts that have haunted her for so long and if she’ll step into the sun after a past steeped in darkness.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle: 

I am having such a great time reading this series. The Kelly brothers and the other team members just kick major story. They love hard, they fight hard and they are 100% there for each other.

I LOVE reading novella’s and this one was brilliant. It felt like a book. I love Rachel and Ethan. I love that Maya knows realistically that what Rachel went through can’t be all parcelled up in one book. They have a relationship that more storyline was begging to be told.

Rachel is all ready for the move, I totally agree with her. I would be high tailing it out of the old home that held so many difficult memories to a place where she feels safe and can start fresh.

Leave the bad memories, lock the door and open the new one.

It certainly doesn’t clear the memory bank, but it is a start in the right direction to healing quicker. The walls in the old home were still reminding her of Ethan and what they had lost. They were lucky enough to get a second chance.

“I’ll be fine, Ethan. I have you now.”

That one statement. Just those simple words had the power to undo him. He had to close his eyes to prevent himself from completely breaking down and unmanning himself.

“Yes, you have me now,” he said hoarsely, so choked up that he could barely get the words out.


Rachel has a very realistic danger she must face in this novella. I was like whahhhhhhh!!! A horrific incident in the news, is still fresh in my mind and having Rachel in that same type situation was very commanding and 3D.

Very frightening.

Very real.

I love what else happens in this novella .......

It would be her moment in the sun after a long sojourn in the shadows.

After reading a sneak peek of Shades Of Gray at the end of both # 5 and # 5.5 , both different teasers, I am like BRING.ON. Shades of Gray,P.J and Coltraine’s story.

Woot!

Then sadly I am fresh out of books until Forged In Steele # 7, the man of few words, Steele’s story.

I was rather enjoying the marathon binge on this series. Now I gotta wait.

Bummer!

  1. She has so many good books from what I've seen. Her erotica series is being sold in our grocery but with my mile-high TBR, I don't know when I'll get to it if I do get it?!?!?! So frustrating!
