Rating: 4 Cups
Axe is a very strong and very ethical male. He has a kind heart and strong values of what is right and wrong, which shows he is a man of character and a protector – and that is exactly what he becomes for his mate.
Emma is a woman who is hurt and lives daily in torture and fear. Her love and concern for her son is a constant open wound in her heart, and she is willing to sacrifice herself to protect him, but she is also ready to move on and find a relationship that will heal her – and that is what she finds in Axe.
The story is sweet with scenes of pain and torture and fear, and yet there are moments of connection, safety, kindness, and love. The reason I put four cups is because it needed more build up of the story before it reached its conclusion. I felt the story was a bit rushed by the authors.
The characters are beautifully built and the story has depth and very good messages, but I needed more to read before the romance escalated. The story felt a bit rushed to me, so even though I would read gladly again, I felt like I missed something more.
