For a man who thought he had everything, Trace Jacks sure had nothing now.
After one letter blows his life apart, Trace is clueless how he can move on. He stumbles through the days, never accepting the grief that flows within him, and finding it easier to bury his loss. To him, if he doesn’t think about it, then it never happened. Burying the hurt, he continues with his new life. Hiding from the truth becomes a lot easier af-ter he takes his niece to her dance class, striking up an interesting conversation with her teach-er.
Shae Bennett is happy to keep things fun, enjoying Trace’s seduc-tion and his spontaneity. She’s reluctant to get serious with anyone; she has enough going on in her life. With him she can forget about her concerns for her mom, her tumultuous relationship with her father, and stress of running the dance studio. With him she can be herself, and it be-comes all-consuming.
When the fun begins to slip, when reality starts to encroach in the worst possible way, their relationship unravels at an alarming speed. Neither one is willing to end what they’ve come to need so deeply, but each of them has issues that can only be dealt with alone.
Can Trace and Shae unhook the chains that hold them back? Is their newfound love strong enough to battle back to one another?
This one was much more emotional for me. I was all set for a long illness with Shea's mother....NOPE, not the case. WOW, it was swift and fast. I could feel her pain, it was beautifully written. I will say, the timeline was pretty spot on, I liked the fact that she didn't make it easy for Trace. And, the reasoning behind Shea's calling it quits, was very believable.
Now, Trace's story, while it was heartbreaking, it became a bit redundant. Really nothing ever coming of it. It just faded away with one conversation. I was bothered by that.
Trace and Shea had amazing chemistry. . I loved that it was so easy for them to fall back into each others arms, casual and no commitments. We all know that never works out. LOL...
I really enjoyed the latest addition to this series. OH! Dale and Trace's brother and sister relationship I FREAKING LOVED! That was my favorite part. Bravo!!!!
