~ Synopsis ~


*Book 6 in The Beautiful Series or Standalone* All Blake Johnson knows is the life of a Marine. After serving his country for eight years, he returns to his family for some rest and rehabilitation. Fighting an internal war, he battles sleepless nights as images of his former military days haunt him. From the moment Audrey Hampton walks into his life, he is drawn to her. Her beauty leaves him breathless and weak in the knees. She kindles a spark of hope deep within his soul, igniting a part of himself he feared was missing. Her never-ending compassion for others opens his heart in a way he never dreamed. But Audrey is hiding wounds of her own. Returning to Lake Tahoe to care for her ill mother triggers painful childhood memories of her parents’ loveless marriage, reminding her there is no such thing as true love. Will Blake’s resolve be powerful enough to open Audrey’s sealed heart? Or will Audrey fear the past and risk losing the man who could give her life a new found purpose? Can two wounded souls become one?

Favorite Quotes:

“‘Nothing compares to this Audrey,’  I said, unable to hold back.  ‘Nothing has ever made me feel the way I do when I’m with you.  You’re all I see.’” 

“You have made me smile, love, and even dream a life full of love.  It is beyond anything I could have ever imagined for myself.  You are my one and only for eternity.”

“‘Love doesn’t need a calendar or a clock, Audrey,’  Lily chimed in.  ‘It just needs two people to take a leap of faith and follow their hearts.’”

 

My Review:

This may be the sixth book in the series, but it is my second read from the Alicia Rae Beautiful series.  Another sweet story of finding love when those involved are not looking for it, expecting it, or even aware they needed it.  Swoon, I am totally besotted with Blake, although admittedly, I know such a man is a total fantasy as he is really just too good to be true.  I appreciate and enjoy the fact that her books are stand-alone volumes, yet we continue to hear about some of the characters from previous books.  Her writing is easy to follow, heartfelt, and serves up some steam to go with those hunky heroes – all of which I find ever so tasty.
