Wyatt Conner is a hard man. A sixth generation sheriff in his hometown of Garnet. A former MMA fighter. His life is about following the rules and making sure everyone else in Garnet follows them too.

Before life hurt him, Wyatt was a different person. Love had once blinded him to his upbringing and made him defiant against anyone who tried to separate him from the girl he loved. He easily broke laws to ensure her safety.

When she left it destroyed him.

Now she’s back.

Tabitha knows coming home is a mistake, but family obligation demands it. Of course she would run smack into the love of her life the day she returns.

Despite the danger, Tabitha is powerless against the wild rush of desire that explodes between them the moment she finds herself in Wyatt’s arms again. They deserve a second chance, both of them, but she can’t risk Wyatt finally discovering the real reason she left.

He broke the rules for her once, and now her haunted past threatens the man she loves–the man he’s become–again. If he learns everything she’s suffered, he’ll cross the lines to take revenge. Tabitha just can’t risk it. Not even for another taste of true love.

Even if you have not been reading the Battered Hearts Series by Kele Moon you will find this book is so well written it stands alone on its own merit. This series focuses on MMA fighters and their personal lives. This goes beyond the current events affecting their lives and their fighting. These stories encompass their entire lives and the reasons why they have ended on the path to fighting and controlling their anger.

This particular book focuses on Wyatt and Tabitha, who have been married for thirteen years, yet lived as husband and wife for only 4 days. Tabitha’s sudden and unexplained departure from their town has haunted Wyatt all these years. All he had was a letter from Tabitha with the request that he allow her to move on while knowing that she would love him for the rest of her life.

This story deals with some painful issues that will amaze and instruct you about what you know of family commitments, love, and the sacrifices you may be willing to make in order to protect your loved ones.

Kele Moon is an established author with a unique and brilliant writing style. She has a way to describe emotions that is heartfelt. The characters in this series are all connected either by blood, love, or simply because they live in a small town where everyone is aware of their neighbors’ plight. This is the main reason why you will feel deeply connected to these characters as you read their stories. The characters are like a stack of dominos that have been equally spaced from each other, yet close enough to be affected … if you push one, all the others are disturbed.

I wholeheartedly recommend this series as an entertaining and moving set of books you will not soon forget.


  1. Great review! I absolutely LOVED this book! I felt so bad for Tabitha and Wyatt and what life handed them. He felt like he could fight the world for both of them. It was heart-breaking.
    One reason that romance is my favorite genre is the HEA and boy was I ecstatic with this one! I can’t WAIT to read more of these characters!
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
