I was eight months pregnant and on the run from my ex when I met the love of my life. The Navy Seal who saved me in more ways than one.
Chase made his way into my life, completely turning it upside down. He made me feel safe and gave me so many things I’d never fathomed I could have.
He became a dad to my son.
But just as my life started to feel perfect, I was hit with a bombshell. The mafia my ex belonged to had a bounty on my head.
My life truly started the day I met Jessica, and I vowed to keep her and our son safe.
But now they wanted her. And even worse, they were after my son.
What they didn’t know was that I was waiting for them. I had been trained for this.
I’d never let anyone harm my family. They’d have to go through me first.
They tried taking it all away, but they quickly realized it was a battle I would never lose.
This was my first read by LeAnn Ashers and in my typical fashion I picked a book in a middle of a series. Thankfully this one was easy to follow as the book can be read standalone but there are interconnecting characters from a few of her series, specifically Devil Souls MC and Forever. I do love my men super protective, sweet, and loaded especially when there is a sassy women around who are knocked up.
What didn’t really work for me is how insta the story turned out to be. Although there was much to unpack in the dramatic lives of Jessica and Chase.
Jessica is really unlucky pregnant woman, what with being an orphan and on the run from her psycho mafia ex-baby daddy. While seeking sanctuary she has a chance to meet our alpha. Chase whose protective instincts are kicked into the highest gear once Jessica‘s past catches up to her in more ways than one. When I said there is much to unpack in their dramatic lives I was not even a little bit joking. Thankfully Chase is an ex-Navy SEAL, which he likes to remind himself about very often through the book, was up to the task of protecting her and everyone she cares about.
It’s really a sweet story and there are many secondary characters with some very interesting and unconventional stories that are dying to be told.
While I enjoyed the book immensely the book did feel rushed and sprung major plots suddenly without much segue. There was also quite a few scenes that went into way too much descriptive detail than wasn’t warranted and in the end started to feel like filler. However, I do recommend sticking around for great character chemistry and just a super sweet romance with a side of danger.
