Oh boy do I love my broken characters who are on the path to healing. Knox and McKenna have both been

through a lot, but they’re working on themselves. Just not together. Not at first anyway.

Knox and I shared a deep connection. I wasn’t ready to give that up. But since my heart didn’t know what was best for me, my head had to make that decision. I needed to keep my distance.

Due to a misunderstanding, McKenna has been keeping her distance from Knox. She misses him, misses spending time with him and his little brothers, but for now she can’t go there. Being the leader of his sex addicts group is conflicting enough.

Knox gives McKenna some time, but he’s not going to let her disappear from his life. She is the first girl he’s ever truly cared about and he’s not willing to let her go so easily. He’s just got to find a way to convince her... convince her that he wants only her. That she has changed him.

The more time I spent with her, the more difficult it became to resist her. And what scared me even more was that the more time I spent with her, the urge to fuck other girls evaporated. There was only McKenna.

Even though Knox and McKenna are fighting totally different battles, they both are in the same boat. Their situations aren’t the same, but their feelings are.

Something in his nature called to mine, and I couldn’t turn away.

I really love these two characters. McKenna struggled a lot in this book. She struggled with her feelings for Knox and his past. She struggled with the conflict of her job and learning to move on her past and forgive herself. Knox is moving forward. He’s trying to figure out a way he can be with McKenna. He needs her in his life. She is the first woman he’s ever had true feelings for and he doesn’t know how to express them.
The chemistry between Knox and McKenna was ever growing and my queen of steam, Kendall Ryan, took the steam up a notch from book one. This book was sexy with a dash of passionate, sweet and touching. Knox is an alpha male, but he’s so damn loving and charming. McKenna’s growth in this book was lovely to see. The characters are great, but not just the main two. I am in love with Knox’s little brothers. All of them. They are the best. The ending had a cliffhanger, but thankfully the next and final book in McKenna and Knox’s series will be out at the end of May.

She had embedded herself into my life, made me need her. I’d never needed a woman the way I needed McKenna.
