THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ!!!!!
First and foremost, I must say a book has never touched in a way this book did. I fell asleep reading this book and woke up to read this book. I am only going to give you enough information so that you absolutely must read it!!!!
The story of Annie and Dylan was so enthrallingly captivating and thrilling. Every page you uncover more and more about Annie and Dylan’s secrets, their relationship, and the inner demons they carry. This book is about betrayal, loss, love, the ability to overcome one’s past, and acceptance. It does end on a cliff hanger, so I can’t wait for The Truth About Him.
Thank you to NetGalley for allowing to review this book before the release date, and to post my honest review.

This book was absolutely captivating from start to finish, and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it (very late last night). I admit that I did not read the first book in the series, but I easily could follow the story of Alexis, Dylan and Luc. Alexis is in her last year of law school, Dylan is in his residency program as a doctor, and Luc is….let’s just say trouble.
The book takes place in Canada with Alexis haven been severely beaten, hospitalized for several days, and suffered a terrible loss. She returns home to her best friend and roommate, Anna, and starts therapy to overcome her abusive childhood and her current situation. Dylan is trying to win the love and trust of Alexis back, but is also harboring things from his past that he fears will have Alexis running, and Luc is trying to stay out of jail, hold onto Alexis, while trying to keep her safe from his family (which I found a little ironic). I don’t want to even get started on Alexis’ mother!!!
I think that author does an amazing job by wrapping up the book by writing, “Fate had twisted our love but when true love was given to you, you didn’t back down. You fought hard and made life what you wanted it to be.”
With that being said, this book is a little bit of a time jumper and there was a lot going on in this book with the other characters that had me a little confused. What happened to Alexis’ sister? I understand she want back to school, but after their phone conversation she wanted to reveal something to Alexis, and she’s never heard from again. Alexis’ mother, the evil wrench, suddenly has an about face? Anna reveals something life altering from her past to Alexis over text? As riveting as this book was and as happy as I was to see it end the way it did, I will still baffled by some of the character’s roles in the book. I don’t know if the author is going to continue the series or if she was just trying to wrap up the last book as best as she could. Just my opinion. It is my review, right?

Love Unbroken (Diamond Creek, Alaska Novels Book 3)
This is the second book that I have read by J.H. Croix in her Diamond Creek, Alaska Novels Book Series. I previously read and reviewed, Follow Love, the second book of the series. The nice thing about this series is each book can be read on its own and you don’t have to read the entire series.
