The past still hovers like a dark cloud. But every dark cloud has a silver-lining.

I chose this book based on the blurb. Two parts caught my attention: “The past still hovers like a dark cloud. But every dark cloud has a silver-lining.” To me, this said that while the characters may have issues, there will still be a happy ending. “Peyton Kroft was his forever, until the unthinkable happened.” With the term “unthinkable” death unfortunately came to my mind. When I saw that Peyton was mentioned more than once in the blurb, I figured that Jackson must have hurt her somehow and I was intrigued enough to want to find out more.

Jackson Vance is definitely “book boyfriend” material. Aside from the cute way he decided on Peyton’s nickname, he behaved like her champion/protector. He pulls an attacker off of Peyton. Broody describes Jackson very well and I couldn’t help but fall in love with him a bit myself.

“And even through today’s darkness—there was light. There was Jackson. Always Jackson.” This is one reason why I love broody male characters to begin with. Even knowing his past and issues, Peyton is able to see the good in Jackson.

Usually in the other second chance romance stories I read, when the couple got together that was the end of the book. This one had a twist that I enjoyed. A really good story!
