“You belong with someone your own age,” she counters after a few intense beats. She pulls her hand away from my face and averts her gaze. “You deserve to find someone young and pretty without any complications. I want you to be happy. I want that for you so much.”

“My happy place is you.” I reel her into my body, clamping my hands on her lower back to stop her from wriggling free. “You make me happy. I don’t want any other girl. I never have, and I never will. I only want you.”

“Vander, please.” Tipping her chin up, she stares at me with tears in her eyes. “Please forget about me and find someone else.”

I shake my head. “It won’t happen. I can’t tell my heart how to feel.” Taking her hand, I place it over my chest, hoping she can feel the steady thrumming of my heart. “This is yours, Kendall, whether you want it or not. It doesn’t matter if you don’t claim it, it will always beat only for you.”

My ARC Review:

A forbidden reverse age-gap romance with a touch of fated mates, this was unputdownable once I started!!

Kendall appears to have it all – married to her childhood sweetheart with 3 kids, friends, and a life that looked good looking in from the outside. The reality is very different. Her marriage is falling apart, to such a degree no one would comprehend, and she feels things she has no right feeling when her son’s best friend, Vander, is anywhere near her.

Vander’s upbringing has been hell – born into a wealthy family, but with a father who treats him like dirt, is violent and abusive, and who’s mother is crawling her way into a vodka bottle every day to escape from her life. Vander has always felt a pull towards Kendall, but he has always been a child in her eyes, now he is 18yrs old and a man, and is determined to prove he is the one for her.

This is a massive rollercoaster of a ride, full of emotions, drama, violence, smoking hot chemistry and an intense soul connection that spans time. I was wrung out after reading this, so intense was the feelings the story produced. It’s dark in places and may well push some boundaries, but the ending is everything you could hope for, after you’ve picked up your broken heart! Well worth the read, stunning.
