I knew falling in love with him was bad for us both, but I did it anyway.
For a brief moment, we had it all. Even though he was leaving to join the Marines and I had four years of college ahead of me, he was everything I ever wanted and didn’t think I deserved.
But real life has a way of dashing dreams—and that happy future we envisioned together? It disappeared at the hands of a monster.
Ten years have passed and I’m not the same naïve girl that believed in happily-ever-afters. When unforeseen events draw me back to our hometown and I find myself caring for my two teenage brothers, the last thing on my mind should be reconnecting with the hottie-turned-hero who I loved at seventeen.
As the past begins to repeat itself and old threats resurface, I’ll have to trust him with the secrets that tore us apart if I want a second chance at his heart.
Could not put this down, once I started I needed to finish this story of love broken and then repaired – second chance at romance for me and I devoured this.
This is the second story in the series, I highly recommended reading Warrior (First to Fight #1) as although not linked you do have characters from Warrior that return to Survivor and I have a feeling that Savior (First to Fight #3) we will have these characters return. We also do have an Epilogue – 5 Years Later – which I love for Standalone stories and this one did not disappoint.
Firstly you get dual POV which for such a highly emotional storyline I think definitely helps you understand each characters reflections of history and how events they could not control directed their relationship.
Sofie and Jack – they simply were destined for each other and how Jack never gave up was a beautiful thing to read.
Warning this storyline does include references and reflections upon rape and aggression so be prepared but I really thought they were well written. The sex scenes between Sofie and Jack when required for soft and sensual but then we were also given some great passionate and intense Romance Between The Sheets.
Sofie is definitely a Survivor, her two brothers also help give this story some humour and tender moments of forgiveness and family.
