I don’t remember a time I didn’t love Crenshaw Bennett.
I tried to deny it, but my feelings grew deeper.
I thought he could never love me the way I love him.
I was wrong–outrageously, deliriously, and beautifully wrong.
On innocent kiss changes my life forever.
Suddenly, Shaw is mine.
Loyal, devoted, and the most loving man on Earth.
Together, we created an explosion fo fiery passion, devotion, and chemistry I never knew was possible.
All of my dreams are within reach, but I should have known it was too good to be true.
The past always catches up to you, and I’m left staring at my worst nightmare.
Faced with the unthinkable, I am forced to choose between the man I love and a past I cannot change.
Shaw’s fighting like hell to prove we can have it all, but can I find the strength to be the woman he needs?
Crenshaw Bennett has always been a great guy. From beginning to end, there is no lack of honesty and integrity for him. He’s handsome, he’s successful and he is her dream, always has been. But she has only ever been his kid brother’s best friend. She gave him his nickname, Shaw, while he was in college and demanded a nickname in return. Lizbeth Hasting became Bizzy in an instant. Two other things happened in the same moment, Bizzy picked Shaw’s career path and she also found the man she knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. of course, Shaw didn’t think much of it, Bizzy was a big part of his life, his family, his world.
They relied upon each other, the held each other up in the hard times and they laughed together in the good times. Bizzy became Shaw’s everything, without him even realizing what was happening. It a blink of an eye, he knew she was it. But this was not going to be an easy ride to happily ever after. There was no way of knowing if they would truly make it to that point. There were struggles, there was drama and there was love. More than anything there was love. If love sees us through all things, Ahren Sanders has written the perfect book to show how far we will go for love and what we are willing to do to hold on to those that have always held on to us.
This book had me bawling in an instant and clinging it to my chest in the next. It stole my breath and breathed new life into each page. The struggles, the hope, the love. This book was more than just another story, so much more. The brothers in this book just completely threw me for a loop, they were honest, they were good and they were worth every single good thing that was said about them. But Bizzy… Bizzy was beautiful. She was smart, she knew what each one of the brothers was destined to be and she knew they were her family. She was so amazingly strong and brave and you just can’t help but envy her strength and her heart.
What did I love about the Bennett brothers? EVERY LITTLE THING! When Nicky met Bizzy, they were young they were in the hospital and they pulled one another through the toughest of times. There is nothing could keep them down. Mathis and Shaw and Nicky were honest and good and always had one another’s back, but more than that, they all protected Bizzy. She was one of them and she would always be in their lives and in their family. No matter what.
I don’t want to spoil anything, but I want to tell you, my favorite part of the book was Christmas. First of all, I love Christmas in general, but Christmas in this book… I loved this moment, this time, this holiday! It was raw, it was emotional and the perfect scene in the perfect place. It was powerful and I just clung to the book during this part in complete awe.
Ahren, you took a good story and made it truly great. You have written a lot of books and I have been with you through each one of them and damn, this makes my heart swell. This book is so much more than I have ever read, it is so much more than I ever expected, it is an amazing book and there is so much love in my heart for this book. Not only one more amazing book for you, but a new favorite for me. You have outdone yourself and I am so in love with this book, if five stars is the best, this book is worth 10!
