“What are you so afraid of? You think that
I don’t know you?” I closed the distance between us and reached for her hand.
“You bite the tip of your index finger when you’re nervous. You eat peanut
butter straight from the jar and hum when you lick the spoon. Family gatherings
make you uncomfortable. And you’re stubborn as hell.”
Emotion swam in her green irises.
I cupped her cheeks between my palms. “I
love you with all that I am.”
“Please … don’t do this.” She blinked back
the threat of tears.
“I need the words. Tell me you don’t want
me. That you don’t love me. Because if you can do that, I’ll walk out that door,
and I won’t ever look back.”
Time ticked by as I waited for the words.
The urge to press my mouth to hers burned through me, but I needed an answer.
Molly closed her eyes, inhaling deeply, and
when she opened them again, it was as though a switch had been flipped. She
grasped my wrists, removing my hands from her face, and then took a step back
and straightened her spine.
I braced myself for impact.
Her face was devoid of emotion as she
delivered the blow. “I don’t want you. I don’t love you.”
Pain ripped through me. I dropped my head
to the ground, giving it a shake before I looked back at her. “You win.” I gave
her my back and made my way to the door. “Molly,” I said, reaching for the
“Y-yeah?” Her voice cracked, but I didn’t
Anger and agony twisted inside me, twining
into a thickly corded rope. “I never want to see you again.”
Y’all prepare your hearts! ♥️ K. Street is about to put it through the tumble dryer with this one. Easton and Molly’s story is heartbreakingly real and poignantly perfect. It will give you goosebumps, bring you tears of joy, heartache and fear and happiness and hope!
Molly is beautifully broken. Shattered by a tragic past that she has been unable to over come up until now. She had it all with Easton, but in a pre-emptive move of self-preservation she runs, leaving him devastated, broken-hearted and bitter. She runs into him a few months later on a drunken night out with her BFF, Paige. That leads to a one-night stand hookup. When she returns to her room the next morning, little does she know he’s left her with a parting gift. One that will share both his and her DNA. Whoops!😬
Easton is a really great guy. He’s the world’s best big brother and uncle. Plus he’s devastatingly gorgeous! But Molly obliterated his heart, not once but twice. After the hotel hookup, she keeps showing up and he doesn’t understand why? 🤔He just slams the door in her face moving on. I mean he is straight up nasty to her when she shows up, when she calls, for months. He is purposefully punishing her for what she did to him. When he finds out the truth about why she has been trying to contact him all those months, he’s devastated by his own behavior. That’s because of the kind of guy he is. Not gonna say more about this cause spoilers suck, y’all!
The background of Molly’s upbringing is devastating. It makes sense why she would guard herself and make some of the choices she did. I won’t tell you what those were. I will just say I can see why she would have. Their journey to redemption and forgiveness (on both sides) wasn’t always easy but it was everything!!
This book has a fabulous cast of characters. Some you met in Where Love Ends. I love Molly’s BFF, Paige. I want her story. This book has the perfect amount of sweetness and frustration and hotness. It’s funny where it needed to be and it had awesome flow and I read it really quickly. I didn’t want to stop because I was so invested in Easton and Molly. This is definitely a fantastic read. But I would recommend reading Where Love Ends first. That’s where you will meet Easton first.
⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I was an Easton fan in WLE, but I really love him now.He was patient and sweet and loving. GAH! Molly needed him even when she tried to fight it Grab this book!
