I’ve never really read any of the Harlequin series like this that has multiple authors.  I have some idiosyncrasies that make it hard for me to NOT read a whole series once I start it and almost impossible for me to read a series out of order.  In this case, the first book in the series was written by one of my favorite authors so I just had to give it a go.

As the characters come to outwardly admit in this story, Selena and Knox are both broken.  Yet they both have a lot of love and compassion for the world, especially those in their circle.  They just can’t seem to let anyone in too far.  This is a friends to lovers story (which I love!) so at least they both know going in the other had issues.

I’ll admit, there were quite a few tears shed while reading this book.  Knox just broke my heart.  Maisey Yates did a beautiful job of helping the reader to feel what Knox was feeling and to understand what he was going through.  I love that Selena was there for Knox through it all so there was no need for him to explain every detail to her.  There were still things, his innermost thoughts, that she didn’t know yet.  But since she knew him through his good times and bad, she knew the depth of his sorrow and grief.

This story did its job of pulling me into the overall story and mystery of Will while giving me an all-encompassing story of Selena and Knox.  Although I’m not familiar with the author of the next book in this series, I’m looking forward to reading her part of the tale.
