Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes. Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance. Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.
Now I have to first state that I have not read the previous books and while this one could be a standalone I think I may have missed out and that is why I didn’t enjoy this as much as I had hoped. I liked it, don’t get me wrong but I was far from loving it. I will say that I do plan on reading it again after I have read the previous books to see if I will like it more. Also, books about addicts usually don’t bother me, I have family members and friends who are battling their addictions but I think because I currently have someone who I know is an alcoholic who is no longer sober and I see the destruction it is causing that this one did maybe get to me when normally it wouldn’t. I don’t want to go into a lot of details in this review because of the reason stated above but I will say that it is well written and a book that might touch a piece of your soul, especially if you know someone who is an addict but is fighting their addiction and winning.
