A once broken woman, striving to find her former self.
Olivia James leaves a heartbroken Ethan O’Connell watching as she fades into the distance. Frightened by her attraction to his controlling nature, and the lethal Irish charm that no one man should possess, she walks away. Slowly overcoming her past and regaining her confidence, she begins to take back her life. Unwilling to give up, Ethan’s persistent nature forces her to examine her feelings and face her fear. Struggling with the balance of power in their relationship, can she give in to the intense magnetism between them and let herself be loved?
A man in love, determined to heal her heart.
Returning to his Irish homeland, Ethan faces major obstacles in his life: his still impassioned temper, his father's censure, a vindictive ex-girlfriend and a troubled past full of secrets. When his future meets his past, secrets don't stay secrets for long. Resolved in his need to shield Olivia from her past, he’ll do anything to protect her from her abusive ex. Still craving her submission, his greatest concern is protecting her from his own desires.
An infinite universal force
Eccentric psychic, Eva Storm senses the energy around them. Fate can change and destiny is not always an easy path; sometimes the journey is full of twists and turns. Trust is a very fragile gift. Despite their reluctance to believe, she watches over these disconnected souls, willing the universe to steer them together. Love is the only true magic, for only true love transcends all time.
In book two, we have Ethan and Olivia struggling to find a balance in their relationship. Olivia is still guarded and wanting to protect her heart. Ethan wants to prove to her that he loves her and her alone. Despite their reservations, the two of them are bound and a force outside of them is pulling them closer together. There are some incredible moments. Sweet and tender. One of the sweetest ones is this:
Lifting her hand to his heart, she places her palm over it. “What makes me happy is what’s in HERE.” She presses her hand against it firmly. “Everything I need … is here,“ she says, feeling it beat harder and faster, pounding heavily in his chest.
And some moments are hot:
A moment longer and he would have had her out of her panties with her dress hiked up over her hips. Folding her over his desk, he’d have his wicked Irish way with her, fast and hard.
And trust me, there are even hotter moments ;)
Like every relationship, the two of them struggle with balance and have arguments. But with Ethan, it’s hard to stay angry with him, especially with that adorable accent. Poor Olivia doesn’t stand a chance! My favourite quote has to be from Ethan when he takes her to Ireland:
“Welcome to Ireland,” he whispers. “You’ll want to come again, soon. And … I can personally guarantee, Miss James, that you’re going to come often.”
Poor Ethan does struggle with the repercussions of an ex that is determined to make his life hell. Olivia is so understanding and will stand by him no matter the outcome.
Both Olivia and Ethan have secrets, secrets that they both want to keep hidden. What will happen when the secrets come to light? Will they bring the two of them closer or drive them apart? Tension, drama, cute and sweet moments, hot sex, Tricia has everything in her story. She has created incredible characters that you love and some you hate. Carter, John and Shannon are some of my favourites. Ethan of course is number one ;) And the ending … We are left on the edge of our seats! So many questions left to be answered. What does the future hold for Olivia and Ethan? I look forward to finding out what Tricia has in store for us. This is definitely a favourite series of mine.
About the Author . . .
That's the official version. But the simple truth is... I'm not an author. My friends laugh when I say that. I have never aspired to write the next great love story or take the literary world by storm. I'm just a normal woman, struggling to pay the bills and trying to raise my kids in a home where they feel empowered, supported and loved. Love inspires me to write. I love when the characters take over the story and plot twists develop that I hadn't planned. l love when you read and you get all warm and squeezy at the good parts. I love the journey to the HEA even though sometimes that road has a lot of bends in it. I love how two imperfect characters can love each other perfectly. My reward, my inspiration is experiencing through them, a love so deep that I feel it in my own heart.
