Liam wasn’t supposed to be my happily ever after.
He wasn’t even on my radar.
He was my husband’s best friend—forbidden.

But my husband is dead and I’m alone. I ache for him and I reach for Liam.

One night with Liam changed everything. Now I have to decide if I truly love him or if he’s just the consolation prize.

Maria’s Review

➦This wonderful novel about loss, grief, hope and love sure gave me all the feels.

Natalie is a wife of a Navy SEAL and is pregnant with her first baby. She loses her husband in Afghanistan and, while she is completely shattered and heartbroken, she has to continue living for her child. Her husband’s best friend Liam steps up to help her deal with the loss and offers the support she needs.

❤I loved reading about Natalie and Liam’s relationship transforming from friends to lovers. It was so hard for both of them to fight their feelings for each other. Will Natalie be able to give her heart away again? Her biggest fear is loosing another man and Liam is also a SEAL.

❤Through this book I found out how hard it is to be a wife of a military man. Natalie’s thoughts helped me understand just how the constant deployments must be so heartbreaking. The fear of loss you have to constantly live with must me completely excruciating.

➦I recommend this book to anyone who loves second chance at love romances and stories that evoke deep emotions. I sobbed a lot in the beginning of the book but I also chuckled quite a bit at the banter between the two main characters. This novel has a big cliffy at the end but both books of the series are out.
