Mike Haddican is a proud small-town gym owner, a renowned karate instructor, and all-around good guy. He’s never needed much to be happy: his family, his friends, his girl. Especially his girl. But when Kyra left him seven years ago to chase her dreams, she all but destroyed him.

Contemporary dancer Kyra Brims made it big, but it cost her dearly. With her life and career in shambles, she doesn’t need a do-over, she needs a friggin’ miracle. Injured, broke, and out of options after going through hell, she’s come back to Alden, the town she swore she’d never return to and home of Mike Haddican, the man who ripped her soul to pieces, to lick her wounds and recover.

Forgetting and letting go proved impossible when they were worlds apart; now that they’re stuck together they don’t stand a chance, especially with Mike’s grandma and her partners in crime plotting, meddling and refusing to give up on them.

As the passion that never died burns out of control, so do old hurts and unresolved issues. Both have reasons to be angry and feel betrayed, but now that they’re older, are they wise enough to make things work?

My Review

Story... The story starts with Mike being forced into doing a pose for his grandmothers friends erotic painting class, he walks in and he is shocked and angered to see Kyra standing in front of him.

"His Kyra, No, not his Kyra anymore, he corrected himself." - Mike

Mike has been in love with Kyra for his whole life, she came to Aldean when she was 9, she was a foster child, and it was love at first sight. Mike waited until she was 16 to start dating her, meanwhile deterring anyone else who tried to get close to Kyra.  Kyra was very happy the day Mike told her that they were now a couple, he was who she wanted all along.  They then moved in together when Kyra was 18.

Mike was happy with his life in Aldean, he had his job, his family, and his friends and most importantly he had the love of his life Kyra.  But Kyra wanted more out of life she wanted to prove to everyone that she could be someone someday. Someone worthy of great things. Their relationship ended badly with misunderstandings and hurtful words. 

Then 7 years later Kyra moves back into town with her daughter, Sam

Mike and Kyra try their hardest to stay away from each other, when you read from both POV's you learn that they are both very angry at the other person.  As the story progresses you learn why and how things unfolded for each of them.  Even though they weren't together for those 7 years they never forgot each other and never stopped loving each other.

"She felt so damn good.  So fucking hot, so fucking snug.  His memory hadn't been playing tricks on him; if anything, having her was even better than he recalled.  Man, he was fucked.  Utterly, completely fucked." - Mike

With some help from The OG's (The Original Grandma's, read below for how much I love them!) and fate Mike and Kyra do get on the same page.  Their relationship is like fireworks, Mike would lay his life down for Kyra and it shows through every word and action from Mike.  I love how committed and so utterly in love Mike is with Kyra. When they would talk about their past and the misunderstands, my eyes would go really glassy because it breaks your heart to think about the pain they went through. They are both still very hurt from their past and neither of them dare utter anything about their relationship being permanent in fear of losing the other person. 

Mike would have to be one of the most dirtiest talkers I have ever read, at times I felt like giggling from his bedroom talk, and I don't usually giggle in sex scene's, but his mouth is so filthy lol!!!

But he was also the sweetest sweet talker and wasn't afraid to tell the whole world Kyra and Sam were his and nobody messes with what's Mikes!!!

Kyra's ex-husband is very bad news, and he is after something that Kyra doesn't realize she has.

"I'm not Superman, but I will break every bone in your body if you ever come here again and scare them.  They belong to me now, and nobody mistreats what's mine. In any way."

I LOVED this book! The OG's (The Original Grandmas's) were hands down my favorite characters in this story. They made me laugh my guts out! I almost pee'd my pants when they locked Mike and Kyra in a room lol!!! Damn I'm still laughing thinking about it lol!!!! Greta, Wilma and Rebecca are the funniest 80 year old Grandma's I have ever read, their antics with a Tazer, and their S.T.D (Senior. Texting. Disorder) was just hilarious!

"The first message was from Wilma, and it had come half an hour ago. 

Message: I was driving to Alden, pedal to the metal, when my tits blew off.  Waiting for AAA. Can't make it to you. 

Next Message: Damn auotcorrect.  My TIRE blew off, not my tits.

Next Message: Those blew off a couple of decades ago.  Once day they were there, the next day bam! Gone." 

I loved this book so much, the hot sex scenes, the sweet scenes with Mike and Kyra, the beautiful moments with Mike and Sam, and all the funny moments with The OG's it was definitely a story that had all of my favorite things in it! I am hoping Rachel gets her story next, I would love for Rachel and Josh to get together! ;) wink, wink, Miss Aycart.

About the Author

After a colorful array of jobs all over Europe ranging from translator to chocolatier to travel agent to sushi chef to flight dispatcher, Elle Aycart is certain of one thing and one thing only: aside from writing romances, she has abso-frigging-lutely no clue what she wants to do when she grows up. Not that it stops her from trying all sorts of crazy stuff. While she is probably now thinking of a new profession, her head never stops churning new plots for her romances. She lives currently in Barcelona, Spain, with her husband and two daughters, although who knows, in no time she could be living at the Arctic Circle in Finland, breeding reindeer.
