I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have to say Rochelle is a strong woman. She held herself together for everyone else and only let her feelings of grief take over at night. She carried on despite the lost of the love of her life. She never once forgets that her boys need her now more than ever. She takes her role as a parent seriously and gives them everything she has. When Rochelle takes her attraction to Dex further than she has before, she forgets herself and makes a mistake that leaves both of them reeling over what happened. Rochelle isn’t a person who gives up easily and she shows this throughout the book time and time again as her relationship with Dex is tested by both of them. She’s a very strong character who has the patience of a saint as she waits for Dex to get his crap together.
Dex didn’t have an easy life growing up but everything changed the day he met Rochelle. He never told any of his band mates that he has feeling for Cory’s woman. Dex has spent most of his twenties screwing up and Cory was always there to clean up his mess. The day Cory left Dex in Paris changed him forever. Cory’s death meant Rochelle was available but the guilt that he died in the plane crash isn’t forgotten. Dex doesn’t let most people see the baggage he carries around but Rochelle is the only who does see it. She is the only one who has taken the time to truly see him for who he is and not what is printed about him. Dex may have the bad boy drinking and doing drug persona down to a T but it isn’t him. He’s one of the strongest characters I’ve read about in a while. He takes everything that comes at him and keeps pushing through. He wants to be a better person so he is worthy of being with Rochelle and her boys. He also has patience’s and takes the time to see what Rochelle is going through and waits for her as he sees her as his soul mate.
