Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Melyssa
I’ve had the pleasure of reading previous works by this author and she’s always kept my engaged, and presented characters and a story that is unique and makes me feel. So, going into this one, I had the same expectation and I wasn’t let down in the slightest.

I think what got me most about this story, is that the way in which these two characters meet, isn’t something that I’ve read before. It was such a uniquely meeting, one that given their reasons for being there, seemed to just make as much perfect sense as them being together as a couple did the more time they spent together.

Who better to understand the struggles, pain, sadness and loss that comes when you lose someone, or even multiple someone’s that you love, than someone that has either just happened into the same type of situation or that has been facing the same things for some time.

And that is exactly what happened here between Estelle and Xavier.

With the care that the author took with these two, what they essentially became to each other in the beginning and what changed as time wore on, it made for an incredible journey. One that I laughed in, cried in and rejoiced in. What you think is a biker/mc read, turns into something else. Something more.

Making this book exceed any expectations I had, giving me so much more in the process.

A quick paced, emotionally impactful read that at times read very realistically, with characters that you couldn’t help but root for in terms of a happy ending, both together and separately is what you’ll be getting when you pick this book up. I only hope you enjoy the journey of Estelle and Xavier as much as I did.

My thanks to the author and all others involved in letting me read an advanced copy of this. Their journey one that I’m very thankful I was a part of.
