Blurb : One week spent together in a secluded cabin. Two people scarred by their pasts. Can a chance encounter lead to love? Or is it just a moment in time, insignificant once it passes. Taylor has just returned from a romantic vacation with her boyfriend. But instead of an “I miss you!” text from him, she gets one that’s clearly meant for another woman. Which is the only reason she lets a hot stranger kiss her on the sidewalk. It’s the one and only time they’ll ever see each other, so why not? Adam is used to living life on his own terms, from leaving home at 16 to join the military, to returning now, eight years later, to take care of his mother. After that, he’s packing up and leaving again. The last thing he planned on was falling in love with a girl at first sight. But there she was, and now Taylor’s all he can think of. They may be perfect for each other, but they both have pasts that will not stay buried, no matter how much they want them to. And when Adam’s dark past comes crashing between them, one week seems like a very short time. Even if it is a week of love, pleasure, and belonging like neither of them has known before.
Review : With “Adam” (of the Archers, Book 1) the author Lena Bourne managed to create a typical totally domineering male that was at the same time so vulnerable to the readers that it almost hurt to see what he was put through.
I am not sure if I was/am a fan of Taylor but she was perfect for Adam in a way that she was as damaged as he was just with other issues.
Yeah – I liked Adam – but honestly ? I am not sure if I would read another book of this series IF the book is about other Archers, because the author did a great job in me totally disliking every one of his relatives. #laughing …
But hand me another book of that author about other characters and I would not hesitate to read it – I am pretty sure about that.
On second thought – I wonder if this author might manage to even make those nasty relatives of Adam interesting in a second book of this series – that would prove real writing power #still-laughing
#waves … this is me going off to the bookstore of my trust checking on other books by this author
