When Cash Mayson was forced to choose between the love of his life and his unborn child, he knew exactly what he had to do. No matter how broken it left him.

When Lilly Donovan was forced to accept that the guy she loved wasn’t who she thought he was and became a single mother, she knew exactly what she had to do. Proving just how strong she was.

What happens when years later you find out that everything you thought you knew was a lie?

Can two people who once loved each other overcome the obstacles that are thrown at them and fall in love all over again?

Cash Mayson had forgotten how it felt to be loved Until Lilly came back into his life. And now that he remembers, he will do everything within his power to keep not only the woman that he loves, but also his children.

The power of love is a beautiful thing.

“Is that what you do? I mean do you often try to hit on women in coffee shops by buying coffee for them?”

“I can tell you with one hundred percent truthfulness that I have never done that before.”

“Never.” A look passes over his face I don’t know what It means but I don’t like it.”

“Do you date a lot?” I ask quietly wondering if he thinks I will be some kind of conquest.”

“I haven’t dated.”

“You haven’t dated?” I look him over again he must think I am stupid guys who look like him must date a lot.

“I have never had to date.”

“What does that mean?”

“If I want to sleep with someone I don’t need to date them.”

“What?” I breathe that is not at all what I expected him to say. “You’re the guy that can get any girl he wants without ever putting any kind of effort into it.” He shrugs the gesture making me feel sick at the same time I want to kick him in the nuts. Maybe the red hair does make me have a temper.

“I never lead anyone on or tell them things they want to hear.”

“So that makes it okay?”

“I don’t know if it makes it okay but it’s who I am.”

“Well I am glad that this is coming to light now rather than later.”

“Oh no,” He shakes his head. “This thing with you is something completely different.”

“Yeah I know.” I tell him crossing my arms over my chest. “Its different because I will not be sleeping with you.” I lean forward. “EVER.”

“Well I guess we answered the question about red heads and their tempers didn’t we.” He smiles showing off both dimples. “But trust me when I tell you I would not have driven almost three hours to sleep with you that’s not what I am looking for.”

4.5 stars

I’m going to make you fall in love with me again.

Now I have a confession to make here.
*whispers* I didn’t like book 1.
*Ducks for flying tomatoes*
Now now, don’t get all judgy with me here. I loved the set up and idea behind the book. I just wasn’t big on the delivery. As in, the heroine drove me slightly batty. The 2nd book was better, but there was still something missing for me.

Now you’re probably sitting there and thinking to yourself, why is this crazy bitch reading book 3 when she wasn’t thrilled about the first 2? Well because I knew that the first two books the author was still coming into her own as a writer, but I loved where the series was heading. Possessive, slightly domineering, sexy as hell alpha male brothers?

Well after writing this book, I’m pretty sure the author thought

Because everything that bothered me in the first two books was nowhere to be found here. I LOVED IT.

I’m a sucker for a second chance romance, and this one delivered it in spades!

Four years ago Lilly and Cash met by chance at a coffee shop. And as in true Mayson brothers fashion, that’s all the time Cash needed to know that Lilly is his “one”. They date and finally share an amazing night together…only for things to fall apart the very next day.

Cash is head over heals for Lilly, but when his crazy ex (hookup, fuck buddy?) comes back with the news that she’s pregnant he has no other choice but to do the right thing and be there for his baby. So he makes the ultimate sacrifice, breaking not only his own heart but Lilly’s in the process.

When Lilly receives Cash’s cold text message that it’s over between them, it’s the last thing she expects. The fact that she is now pregnant and Cash is not at all the man she though he was is not an easy pill to swallow. But she knows what she has to do for her unborn baby, and that’s stay strong and move on, raising her baby as a single mom.

Now years later when their paths cross again, can Cash win Lilly’s heart once more or is the damage he did between them irreparable?

The one thing I really love about Aurora’s alpha males, is when they see the woman they want they go after her with all the grace of a speeding train. Nothing gets in their way. They know what they want, and they will have it. Cash knows that he will stop at nothing to win Lilly back, he just needs to prove to her that he’s not the man she thinks he is.

And I forgive you, Cash. I definitely approve of your methods in making up for lost time.

But it wasn’t all hot sexy loving. (Which I will never have too much of in these books) I absolutely loved seeing the romance grow between Lilly and Cash. Cash was this perfect combination of dirty talking alpha male and sweet.

There was also the added element of Cash’s psycho ex to keep things interesting. And let me tell you…Jules?

Talk about your crazy bitches. Good lord. The things that she did had me screaming at my kindle in the middle of an empty room.

You know how sometimes there are these characters that just make you want to take off your earrings, put on your ass kicking boots, take out a baseball bat, jump into your kindle and beat the ever loving hell out of them? Well, Jules was that character for me.

I wish that Lilly had stood up to her, but that never really happened. Luckily Cash and his family really came through in that.

But gah! Jules!

Let me end this before I go off on another Jules tangent here. I adored this book. The second chance love story, the added element of their kids together, catching up with the rest of the Mason brothers, it was fantastic.

You get your scorching hot sex scenes with a great story and I for one cannot wait for Nico’s book…especially after the teaser in this one.

If you liked the first two books, you will love this one. And if you’re like me and the first two books weren’t that great for you, then read this one and you will change your mind about the series. Aurora Rose Reynolds is definitely an auto buy author for me after this one.

  1. OMG. I lurved the checkmate bitch pic! I have to find a way to work that line into a book. Are you a SOA fan? Cuz I can tooooootally see Gemma saying it all throaty and whispery, likely with her mouth inches from some bitch's ear. Ha! Great review.
