The rings have been selected.
The champagne placed on ice.
The cake decorated.
And the pre-wedding sex is off the charts…
Lucas Vallois and Andrei Hadeon are finally ready to walk down the aisle. There’s just one small problem.
A ghost from Lucas’s past shows up days before the wedding, desperate for help. Against his better judgement, Lucas and his best friend, Ashton Frost, plan a fast trip back to the one place they swore they’d never go: their hometown in Oklahoma. But the danger is worse than they expected.
Now, they’re in a race to track down a killer, keep a young girl safe, and get Lucas back in time to say, “I do.”
Oh yeah, this was way better than I expected. I don’t really like ‘extra’ books in a series not featuring a new couple, so I was quite surprised with how much I liked this. But this was so heavy on all kind of hurt/comfort that I was in my happy place.
Lucas is startled when Snow comes to tell him his sister is there. His sister, who he hasn’t seen since she was 14. Who rejected him just like his parents did. She has now come to ask for his help in looking for her 16 year old daughter.
Lucas is not ready to forgive her, but he can’t turn his back on his innocent niece, so that’s why he and Snow return to their home town together. But being in the place they grew up brings back a lot of unhappy memories for both of them.
And when it looks like his niece stumbled upon a hornet’s nest, Lucas and Snow have to do everything to keep Lucas’ sister and his niece (and themselves) out of trouble. And of course they need to show up for Lucas and Andrei’s wedding in time…
I loved the bond between Lucas and Snow in this, with them both struggling emotionally. And I loved how Andrei was there for Lucas when he needed him.
- I also did a happy dance when Rowe and Noah showed up to join in the fun.
There were so many awesome parts in this book that I can’t mention them all. It was just so focused on emotional connections, that I melted into a puddle of goo.
There may have been some tears near the end.
If you’re a hurt/comfort fan like me, or just a fan of this series, you can’t miss out on this book.
