One decision will haunt Blackstone soldier Keith for a lifetime…

Keith left behind the feisty love of his life, Lexi Klein, ten years ago when he chose to become a soldier and leave for Iraq, but after a tragedy struck Lexi’s family and Keith couldn’t come home, she felt abandoned. When Keith finally managed to make it back to Boston, Lexi had completely withdrawn from everyone, including him. She decides to end their relationship and move on.

Lexi has always owned Keith’s heart. He just didn’t know how much…

Keith returns to Boston years later for a wedding and finds out Lexi is dating the leader of the infamous Almas Perdidas Gang. Lexi is in over her head, and Keith will stop at nothing to keep her safe. Having never recovered from her broken heart, Lexi wants no part of his grand savior routine. She made her choice, and she has her own reasons to stick to her guns about it.

Keith fights to regain Lexi’s trust, but old wounds are slow to heal…

After Lexi is beaten for not following gang rules, Keith decides to take her on a trip to convince her once and for all to let him back in. But Lexi is holding on to one last secret, and it will change everything. Happiness comes at a price, and once the front Lexi put up comes crashing down, that price will be paid in blood.

Keith must make a decision. Does his loyalty lie with the military? Or with the woman he loves? Or has too much time and history been lost for them to make one…final…

Wow, What a book...This book is completely full of amazing feels. I expected a book different than what J.L Drake gave us. I guess I was expecting more military story  than anything. And it turned out to be so much more than that. I loved the complexity of the characters and the way they evolve and grew together as the story went on. Just completely amazing.  I appreciated that the book gave us more than just military missions with the Blackstone boys. It went beyond that. We got the back story and soft side of a man that really was never able to be as expressive with his feelings and past. I really loved and savored that about Keith's character and story. Drake was able to pull me in as a reader from chapter 1. Her writing in this book is so heartfelt and poetic that I read this book right through the night. Now I do have to say that there was moments with Lexi's character that had me wanting to throw my kindle across the room. The frustration as a reader wanting to fix them and their love story was definitely there. And that's how I know this story was soo worth reading right through so I know how it ended. And what a ending it is!! ;)
Overall Keith's and Lexi story is  Heart wrenching, Sexy, Romantic, Steamy, Emotional ride!..That in the end will have you sighing and wishing there was more. Definitely 5 Star read. Happy Reading Kiddos!!
