Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.
Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.
He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.
*Bleeding Love is the second book in the Hope Town series. It will follow Liam and Megan. Each book in the series is a HEA and can be read as a standalone.*
Would it be wrong and possibly embarrassing to admit that when the ARC of Bleeding Love hit my kindle that I may have screamed like a teenage girl at her favorite boy band concert? Yes? No? Maybe? Oh well I don’t care because that is exactly what I did when I saw that Liam Beckett was in my dirty minded little hands. I may have petted my kindle a little and hissed when my husband came near and tried to take it away from me because his words “it’s official she’s lost her damn mind” may have been said as a prayer for patience and sanity. Can you tell that I was excited?
Now you know I love my man Cohen, yes I said my man, I am still trying to work out the visitation schedule with Dani though; but Liam Beckett oh my god he is going to have to share me with Cohen because I want a Liam of my own. Hmmm... Cohen and Liam fighting over me, give me a second while I picture this… Damn I wish that would happen because Liam Beckett is one hot determined stubborn alpha male that left me changing my panties, remembering what it is to feel loved that you are the most important thing in the world and had me absolutely in love with him. I never thought that the sons of my favorite Corps Security men would have me loving them more than I did their fathers but it’s true, their sons are even more bad ass, sexier, alpha, panty wetting, and everything we love in our book boyfriends. I just love them period.
Bleeding Love was emotional, sexy, enthralling, and showed what the love of a good man can do in healing wounds. I felt so much for Megan, she really broke my heart more than once when we learn of her past. I loved how her daughter was her world and that while she wanted Liam she wanted to make sure her daughter would accept him, although it is quickly shown that she more than does. I’m not going to give anything away but make overs, tea parties, and big tough alpha men make for some hilarious moments and sweet memories. Liam knew he wanted Megan and he waited but when he couldn’t wait any more he still went in gently, well maybe not gently but he made me love him more and more with everything he would do. He truly loved her. And he is one smoking hot sexy alpha man, if you think his daddy was determined to win his mom you haven’t seen nothing yet.
I could go on and on about my love for Bleeding Love, Liam Beckett, Harper Sloan and a million other things, but I won’t. What I will say is this. This is one of the best books I have read this year, one that I have already reread since getting the ARC, and I can guarantee I will be reading it again in the future. I love how Harper Sloan has continued the legacy of the Corps Security men that we all fell in love with, with their sons and daughters, and the way she has done it is beautifully. You do not have to have read the Corps Security series or Unexpected Fate to read Bleeding Love, but I encourage you to do so, just so you get to meet the men we all loved and now their children who once again prove that love can overcome some of the hardest times and deepest pains.
