I got an Arc in exchange of an honest review so here it is !
This is the first book Marie Long published and I have to say this is a really good first novel. It's well written with moving and realistic characters. I think this is the kind of romance that is both deep and tender. I loved Dominick and I really enjoyed reading from his POV. He and Denise were really endearing and well, perfect for each other !
The author promised a great book boyfriend and here we have it ! Dominick was not just scarred, broken and afraid. No, he was also funny, smart, so thoughtful and caring. The way he thought and acted were trueful. You can look for a guy like this but I'm pretty sure he is already taken or hiding somewhere. I felt like he was some rare treasure you would only find in an old shop where you wouldn't have looked. But iof you're like Denise, you'll want to keep him close. She realized quickly enough he was everything she always hoped for. She seemed so nice and fun, cute and reliable. You will want her as your best friend !
Again, the two of them were meant to be together. Even darkness couldn't keep them apart or make one of them run away. Dominick' secrets were terrible and it made my heart hurt. So I'm beyond happy he finally got what he deserved so much. Now I can picture him being happy for the rest of his life. His demons are fading away like snow under the warm and shining sun.
The second characters were great too, I loved Kevin and I can't wait to read more about him. Also, there were intense moments that made the read lively. And what about the hotness of this true love? Denise and Dominick were so touching. I often smile and like me, I'm sure you will feel something deep inside.
So as you can see, I really enjoyed this novel ! Thank you to Marie Long for this beautiful and lovely happy ending ! I'm a big fan of this kind of love story. There is everything a book lover like me can appreciate.
I highly recommand you to read this book. This is the first novel of The Anderson Brothers series and I will gladly read the sequel.
Happy reading !
