Hey y’all… Happy Thursday!
Throwback Thursday is a meme where I can share some oldies but goodies…books that are older than a year and have been sitting on my Goodreads TBR for awhile or books that I’ve read and enjoyed, often from my READ AGAIN E-SHELF!
I’ve seen this meme floating around for awhile now so I finally decided to jump on board. Thanks to RENEE @ IT’S BOOK TALK
who started this meme…if you get a chance, go check out her blog!
She belonged to his best friend.
Molly Boyd’s entire world unraveled when tragedy turned the man she loved into her greatest threat, and now her confusing feelings for his best friend aren’t helping matters. For years Jase has been a solid, steady source of comfort and friendship. Now she can’t stop seeing him as something more. And just as she’s wrestling with her shifting feelings, a new danger from her ex’s past threatens everything.
But she’s always been the one.
Jase Weaver is an expert at unrequited love. Years ago he stood by and watched his best friend marry the woman of his dreams, and he’s endured his suffering in silence ever since. But when Carter’s self-destructive tailspin threatened Molly, Jase stepped in to make her safe. Now he can’t stay silent any longer. He’s wanted Molly forever and it’s time she knows it. So when a new threat against her emerges, Jase will put his own life on the line to protect her, no matter the cost.
Shattered Vows by Kaylea Cross
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
SHATTERED VOWS is book three in the Crimson Point series. It’s a standalone so feel free to jump in here if you haven’t read the first few books!
Molly Boyd was in the middle of a divorce from her husband, Carter, when he died suddenly. Now, she’s a pregnant widow in the small town of Crimson Point. But she has good friends and she also has Jase Weaver, Carter’s best friend. Jase has been quietly in love with Molly for years, even before her and Carter got married. But he stood by his best friend and now he’ll stand by Molly as she navigates motherhood. But when a threat from Carter’s past puts Molly in danger, Jase will do whatever he needs to protect her.
There’s a suspenseful element that spices up the plot but more than that, this is a really sweet love story. I actually haven’t read the first two books (hangs head in shame) so if Molly, Jase and Carter were mentioned before, I’m not sure. All I know is in this book, I loved Jase and Molly together regardless of whether or not it would be considered “forbidden” to be in a relationship with your best friend’s ex-wife. Molly was great, she was smart and tough, she was loyal and sassy. But for me, Jase made the whole book. Oh, Jase! I may have she’d a few tears for him and his unrequited feelings for Molly. He was a super sweet teddy bear wrapped in a hot guy’s body! Jase truly did everything he could to take care of Molly and her baby…SWOON!
Overall, this one was a slow burn romance between a hot ex soldier and a strong, single pregnant widow. Expect a sweet, sexy story with just enough tension to keep you on the edge. Told from various POVs with a delightfully happy ever after. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.
