Faith ~ 
Cade Walker is like no man I’ve ever met before. He’s cynical, brooding, mysterious and, most of all, damaged. He’s a man who declares he’s broken, and one who detests the two very things I live for most: God and love. Yet, I’ve still fallen completely in love with him because I also see the good, something that no one else ever has. I see a man who is strong, silent, honorable and beautiful. He’s a man who is now scarred just as badly on the outside of his body as he is on the inside, all because of me. One who endured severe torture in order to save me from what would be the worst thing I will ever experience in my entire life. He is a man I call my dark angel, one who will have my heart until the end of time, even if I can never have his.

Cade ~ At fifteen years old I lost the only person that ever mattered to me, and the day I lost my little sister in the most vile way was the exact moment I stopped living and only existed. That’s until ten years later, when I walked into an open field in Iraq to hear the most incredible voice I would ever hear in my life. One that rooted me to my spot, and ended up belonging to the most beautiful woman in the world. The only woman to ever make me feel something again, something that I thought was dead inside of me. And no matter how badly I wanted to keep her, I knew I couldn’t. Not with what I have lurking inside of me. It’s something I’ve always kept hidden. That is, until the day I unleashed it on the people who dared to hurt her. It was the one thing that gave me the strength to save us, but it was also the one thing that would remind me of why I could never have her.

Now two years later, the one girl I never thought I would ever see again, the one I have spent my days and nights craving like an addict, walks back into my life unexpectedly, giving us both the shock of our lives. And when the time comes that she needs me again, I no longer resist. Before I know it, I’m pulled into a life I thought I could never have, one that scares the shit out of me but it’s one I’m realizing I want. There is just one problem. One very big problem… She lives for the very thing I loathe, and the one thing that killed my sister… God.

My Thoughts
In case you didn’t know, K.C. Lynn has quickly become my favorite author when it comes to reading stories about broken characters and filled with all the angsty feels. Just like with books 1 & 2, this book enveloped me, twisted me up, made me a part of the story and had me falling madly in love with a dark, brooding, broken soul. I absolutely loved that feeling.

Cade Walker and Faith Williams. Wow. Let me tell you, these two souls are everything. Lynn took an incredibly raw, emotional situation from real life, and spun Cade and Faith’s battered and beautiful story in an unforgettable one. The emotions within this story will leave you wanting to throw your kindle, while wanting to wrap Cade up in a big hug and whisper “it will be okay” in his ear, all at the same time of wanting to shelter Faith right along side of Cade and protecting her. The twists that Lynn throws into their story are magnificently done.

While I fell in love with Cade and Faith, it was Ruthie who truly melted my heart! The way she planted herself in Cade and Faith’s life, so innocent and trusting, just warmed my soul! She was the perfect addition to this page turner. Especially seeing the way she didn’t give Cade any choices when it came to her!

Five stars. It just does not do this book justice! This is, by far, my favorite 2019 read so far, and I will forever recommend it. It’s filled with perfectly chiseled characters, emotional twists, and one hell of a deep plot line! I can’t wait to jump into the next story!

About K.C. Lynn

K.C. Lynn is a small town girl living in Western Canada. She grew up in a family of four children—two sisters and a brother. Her mother was the lady who baked homemade goods for everyone on the street and her father was a respected man who worked in the RCMP. He’s since retired and now works for the criminal justice system. This being one of the things that inspires K.C. to write romantic suspense about the trials and triumphs of our heroes.

K.C. married her high school sweetheart and they started a big family of their own—two adorable girls and a set of handsome twin boys. They still reside in the same small town but K.C.’s heart has always longed for the south, where everyone says ‘y’all’ and eats biscuits and gravy for breakfast.

It was her love for romance books that gave K.C. the courage to sit down and write her own novel. It was then a beautiful world opened up and she found what she was meant to do…write.

When K.C.’s not spending time with her beautiful family she can be found in her writing cave, living in the fabulous minds of her characters and their stories.
