Avery Nolan’s father has never been a part of her life. As a result, she finds herself becoming a caretaker. Always trying to please other people, willing to tuck her own concerns aside for the happiness of others. She is selfless. She is a nurturer. On the outside, it appears Kade Thomas has it all, but no one can understand the guilt and ache he feels daily. He is haunted by his past. Every time he closes his eyes, he finds himself reliving the same nightmare, over and over again. He blames himself for the loss of Jenna. He pushed her too far and she paid the price. Avery saw something special in Kade, from the first day she met him—she could feel it. But the darkness that consumes him is… Uncontrollable. Will she finally be the one to break down the walls he’s built around his heart and soul? Or will she find some walls are just Indestructible…
In C.A. Harms third book in the Key West series, we are given the story of Kade and Avery. Kade is the one who looks like he has his life together. Secretly he is killing himself with the guilt of a tragic accident that happened years earlier. He blames himself because he feels that he could have done something. It’s classic survivor’s guilt. Instead of accepting that the past can not be changed, he tries to drink the pain away. Kade meets Avery and she is everything that he wants. What holds him back is his belief that he doesn’t deserve to find happiness. With determination and love, Avery proves to Kade that he deserves a chance to be happy.
Harms’ books are always emotional and this one is no exception. Reading Kade’s story is hard because you can see that the guilt is taking a toll on him. He pushes everyone away including his friends. Harms’ interpretation of Kade’s story shows that even guys can be vulnerable and emotional. Being this way doesn’t make you weak, it makes you human.
Avery’s part in the story is that she wants to take care of Kade. She has to push her natural instincts away because she knows that he has to get better for himself. I like Avery’s character because she is a strong female and stands her ground.
We are introduced to some of Jude’s story and it’s one I can not wait to read. =)
Harms’ storytelling is phenomenal. She has a way with bringing emotion and humor to create a great balance in her books. She is among some of my favorite authors and is probably why I continue to read her books. I highly recommend that you read this series if you haven’t already.
I enjoy happy endings in my love stories. Loving those scenes that give it the needed angst and heat to keep you hooked and wanting more. Just enough drama to make her heart race and your stomach flutter. I haven't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently I have taken on a new liking and now I am addicted to Romance Novel.
