I fell in love with Thomas Wells and knew he was my forever.
I was sixteen when I gave him my heart.
Our love was the kind to last a lifetime.
But Thomas was broken.
The first day we met he told me he was going to become a Navy SEAL.
At nineteen he enlisted.
At twenty he married me.
At twenty five he left me pregnant and didn’t turn back.
I knew he was suffering….
I also knew I couldn’t save him.
He left me broken.
I was scared and alone.
Until I met Ryder St. John a wounded soldier…
He was lost.
I was lost.
Together we made sense.
I fell in love again…
What Ryder forgot to mention was that he held a secret so explosive that it could shatter both our worlds.

Where do I start with this review.
I guess you can say I’m just a little bit disappointed about how everything played out in this book. I didn’t hate it. But I definitely saw the plot coming before it even happened.I had some tears in my eyes for the first 5% in this book. I just felt so bad for Halo. I was feeling this story so strong. My emotions were all in. I was so excited that this book had brought out such emotions in me in such a short time in starting this book!
But as I read on…I pretty much figured what the big secret in this story was 20% in. Was I a little disappointed about it… yeah kind of.
I just found it unbelievable that nobody recognized it early on. And I wish I could say more about it.
I’m sure there will be spoilers in other people’s reviews of this book. But I just couldn’t move past it all. I just found it incredibly hard to believe that Halo couldn’t see it.
There are just some things you would know right away. The voice alone. That’s all I’m going to say.

Overall…
The book flowed nicely.
I wasn’t a big fan of all the back in forth from past to present.
This might have been a little more believeable storyline for me if more time had past. Like years instead of months. I just found it very hard to believe.
And the way he treated her when she told him about being pregnant. That alone is unforgivable.
It wasn’t a bad story. I just didn’t fully love it.

But it still kept my attention through the end.

*ARC provided for an honest review*

    
“We aren’t from the same area of Rogers Park I’m guessing, but no I don’t like it. I live with my father and I can’t wait to leave. I’ve been training since the day I turned fifteen. There’s a SEAL training camp in Great Lakes, Illinois and that’s where I’m headed. Then I’ll be property of the navy and allow them to take me wherever that may be as long as it’s away from here.”
I can’t help but sulk.
“Yeah, I wouldn’t mind going back to LA,” I mutter.
“How old are you anyway?”
“I’m fifteen. And you?”
“I just turned seventeen,” he replies, biting his lower lip again. I wonder if it’s a nervous habit. “Are you going to give me your number?” he asks. He obviously didn’t have self-esteem issues. I look over to my side and I see Amanda practically drooling as she watches us.
“Ah!” He takes a step back as if he’s tripped and holds his hand up to his chest. “I’m wounded. You seriously need to think about it? Well, that’s a first.” He shakes his head.
Oh geez! He must have lots of girlfriends. Leave it up to me to be lusting after a player.
“Well, if that’s a first then you don’t need to worry,” I snap at him, not liking his arrogance. “You must have them waiting in line for you.”
He looks almost bewildered and remains painfully quiet. It makes me feel like I have the upper hand and I like it for once. Maybe I’ve been drooling too much and he senses it. Not happening.
“There’s a line, but it’s your number I want,” he replies with a cocky grin.
“Thomas, I am not that kind of girl,” I answer harshly.
“Halo, I know you aren’t and that’s why I want your number.” His tone is filled with challenge.
As far back as R.C. Stephens can remember she was a sucker for a good romance. Of course there had to be a prince charming even if he ultimately was a dark knight and there had to be a happy ending.

 

She watched the movie Dirty Dancing way too many times growing up and Jean Claude Van Damme movies too. Go figure!

After years of saying she would write a book one day, she finally put pen to paper and carved out the plot line for what would eventually become the best selling Twisted Series. Now R.C. is just finishing up her seventh book and can’t seem to stop the stories running through her mind.
