About the Author
I've read several books by Kimberly Knight and this book is different from her previous books. Not in a bad way, but different in a way that wasn't expected but enjoyed all the same.
Gabe Hastings was doing what few of us actually get a chance to do: live the life he's always envisioned. For Gabe, it was following in his grandfather's footsteps and serving in our nation's military. He even managed to find love in an unlikely place, but that part of his dream was tragically cut short. Unfortunately Gabe dealt with the loss by finding solace at the bottom of whiskey bottles.
On the surface, Autumn Jones appears to have a charmed, idyllic life, but we all know appearances can sometimes be deceiving and Autumn is living in her own personal hell. A chance meeting sets Gabe and Autumn onto a new path that could possibly lead to a HEA.
As always, the character development is fantastic and the story line is one that is wholly believable. Despite Autumn's craptacular marriage, she had all kinds of courage, and Gabe is all hot alpha military man who was able to finally overcome his depressive state and want to actually rejoin the land of the living. Another fantastic book from Kimberly Knight!
