From best-selling author Riley Edwards comes another, heart-stopping last chance military romance.
Blurb: He was my first love…
I wanted him to follow his dreams. I wanted him to escape the life he hated. I thought I was doing the right thing by not telling him how I truly felt. Until it was too late, and my silence turned into my biggest regret.
Twelve years ago, Shane Owings died, taking my heart with him. I was left devastated and broken hearted. Time didn’t heal, as the years went on I only missed him more.
She was my best friend… the only woman I ever loved.
When I ran off to join the Army, I left behind everything I had ever loved. I thought I was doing the right thing, but my good intentions quickly turned into my biggest regret.
Every year on the anniversary of Shane’s death I watched as Lillian Nelson visited Shane’s grave and spilled her secrets to a dead man. Each year I hoped she wouldn’t be back, that her heart would finally heal and she would move on. But year after year she was back. So many times I wanted to reach out and comfort the beautiful woman, but I knew she would never forgive me. It was my fault Shane was dead.
Until… A terrorist shows up looking for revenge.
I had to come out of the shadows and protect the one woman I had no business falling in love with.

Over 18! Bad boy alpha military men use foul language and enjoy dirty talk.
Review: I wanted to like this more than I did. It had all the makings of a good story but fell just a little short. I don’t know much about the military but I am going to assume the author did her research because these dudes are badass, however, it wasn’t completely believable. I could just be nit-picking. I felt there was so much story potential or story-line potential that got lost in editing.
I like both characters they hold their own and I enjoy the second chance at love and life that they both get but there was something about this story that I just couldn’t get into. It wasn’t a terribly long read and I finished it in a day but it left me feeling meh. I’m going to give this one 3 stars.
