On the Flap
Kerris Moreton should be the happiest woman in the world: She has a successful business and is about to start the family she's always wanted. But the man of her dreams-the one whose green eyes see straight into her soul and whose gentle hands make her body hum with pleasure-is not hers.
Each secret moment with Walsh Bennett serves to remind Kerris of what she's missing. And every stolen hour makes it harder to see her future without him. But being with Walsh would betray a sacred promise and upend her perfect life. When tragedy strikes, the razor's edge between love and loyalty grows sharper than ever. And Kerris must decide where her heart will fall . . .
Don't miss the first installment in The Bennett's Series...When You Are Mine. Available now!
Approx: 65,000 words.
You will need to read When You Are Mine first to understand this book.
The story picks up with Kerris married to Cam and pregnant with his child. They are using the unborn baby as a band aid to their relationship woes. She hedges her entire future on being a mom unlike her own. While she loves Cam for all he’s done, she in love only with Walsh.
Kerris shows quite a bit of personal growth throughout this second part. She matures and understands her actions have repercussions that ripple through other’s lives. While obvious as the reader abandonment is at the crux of her issues, it’s her journey to discover this that is the basis for this tale. I also found it intriguing how she seeks therapy to improve her self-awareness. Mental health is something not often written about in romance, the significance in the plot is refreshing.
The continuation of The Bennetts continues to have a great deal of angst. It displays the constant juxtaposition between love and pain. Walsh and Kerris have unconditional love for one another but this love causes pain for all three of our main characters. Kerris, Walsh, and Cam are perfectly flawed; all have good intentions but sometimes their actions create sorrow. Once they set aside their guilt, can they finally move forward with their lives? And ultimately find happiness?
I wished there would have been more blissful times especially since this wraps up Kerris and Walsh’s story. Regardless, it’s the truthful anguish of how their connections intertwine which make this a successful series. I can’t wait to read more by the author in the future…and particularly to see if Cam will ever have his happy ending.
