Imperfect Heroes #4
April 11th 2017
He’s been broken, repaired, and has finally risen above his devastating injury.She’s a cute, foul-mouthed nurse with an attitude as big as the ocean, but has a caring heart even bigger.They once loved each other back when life was simple and being an adult wasn’t an issue. What was once a beautiful love turned into a devastating heartbreak. Are they brave enough to give it another try now that life is complicated and ugly? Because while their circumstances once tore them apart, love was never their problem.
Eighteen years old when she broke my heart. Eighteen years old when I left to join the Marine Corps, knowing when I got back, she would not be there waiting for me. I never expected to see her ten years later, all heartbroken and humbled. I just don’t know if I can go there again with Adria Green. She’s short, sassy, and even more stubborn than she was when we were kids – and painfully more beautiful. So why do I find myself completely and inexplicably drawn to her? Because what drew me to her back then has been reignited without my permission, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to douse the old flame. I’ve already lost half a leg. I can’t lose my heart, too.
Am I to blame for my actions when I was just a kid and starting out at life? I was stupid back then, but I’m not stupid anymore. I’m educated, confident, and after my ex-fiancé cheated on me and left, I’m even more careful with who’s going to get my heart. Seeing Kyle Adams after all these years made my heart stop and then almost drop out of my chest. He’s even more gorgeous and considerably more built than he was when we were in high school – despite the injury. I feel myself being pulled toward him like nothing I’ve ever felt, not even back then. But can we go there again? Can you really and truly go back? No, I don’t believe you can. I’m just not sure I can go forward now, either.
Beyond Love is book 4 in the Imperfect Heroes series, and is for readers 18+. Contains adult situations, language, and minor scenes of war.
When I read “Beyond Love” by C.J. Pinard I not only jumped right into the 4th book of a series but also read my first book by this author.
And I have to say it will definitely not be my last book. The writing is so well developed that while you may notice this is part of a series you are never feeling like you are missing to many pieces, therefore it is easy to read as a standalone.
But you have to be aware that you missed out on some great previous stories and I am def. tempted to go back and read one of the previous books.
I really liked Kyle’s and Adria’s story. The “second chance” in this novel felt real when it came to the interactions between the leads.
The author eases you into the plot and gives you insights on the high school sweethearts before moving to the present so the development of their new and fresh relationship feels well developed.
And there was a lot going on in the plot, so the reader will never even for a minute want to put the book down. I am pretty sure there will be many lovers for this book and the followers of this series will adore this story.
