Second chance at love tropes rarely disappoint! The characters usually messed up in the past and want to do better in the present time. Reunion between old lovers or long lost friends make my heart flutter and make me crave the angst…
Way too young, eleven year old Tucker Creed and his six year old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. Creed then decides he’s going to do everything in his limited power to shield his Sylvie from her ordeal. So he does and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages.
They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. Sylvie goes to their special place, Creed never shows and she doesn’t see him again until it’s too late.
With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it. To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges that very few can break through. So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process.
It’s no surprise Kristen Ashley writes the best alpha heroes out there. She does. But what she knows to do best is broken and damaged heroes. What she did that surprised the hell out of me, was to deliver not only the most badass guy I’ve met, she delivered a freaking badass heroine to pair him with! Seriously, Creed and Sylvie : FAVORITE couple ever.
“Creed” is packed with action, raw and gritty, it’s also a real emotional love story, all wrapped up with what I like to call “Vintage KA” awesomeness. If you haven’t read that one yet, don’t waste another second, one click!!!
List in progress, more to come soon!
