☆✮ My Review ✮☆
☆I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!☆
”Sometimes … love just isn’t enough.”
The sequel to Raising Ryann, Alyssa Rae Taylor does not disappoint readers as more angst, drama, and an ending to keep you hanging keep you on your hands and toes are added to the mix of things.
Taking place just as where book one left off, answering what happens after the big cliffhanger. From there, let's just say that our lovers have a lot to hash out as of course secrets plague the way to their HEA. [R/N:Well, at least I'm hoping for that outcome anyway.]
Sounds typical right? Well, some of it was kind of.
Over all though, there was a nice balance of revelations, steam, as well as surprises to keep you guessing!
Luke, I must say, has A LOT on his plate as the current predicament he faces now could be the ultimate game changer between his and Reese's relationship.
And as for Reese, will Luke's web of entanglements lead her to walking away or fighting even harder to make it work between them? Is their love salvageable to be worth proving? Or will her findings be too damaging for her to give him another chance?
My thoughts: You know, I keep on thinking to myself that if Luke had been more trusting and honest with Reese then maybe he wouldn't have been in such a situation that he is in. But that's just my wishful thinking making itself present.
In a way though, this book hammers out a lot of the detrimental subject matter that will now lead to the climatic third novel finale where everything is on the line. I will not go into detail as to what I think it could be, as it would lead to potential spoilers, but I think both Reese and particularly Luke are going to find themselves making some hard and heartfelt decisions that could change their fates entirely.
I am definitely intrigued as to where Ms. Taylor is going to take the final book of the series as from the cliffy ending, the future of Luke and Reese's love is still in the hanging. Will they get the coveted HEA that they so strive to achieve? Or will everything they've worked for blow up in their faces? Read and you will get one step closer to finding out!

“But the truth is, in the end,” he turns to face me, his gaze intense, “if I have to fight for you, I will, no matter which path you choose, because the way I see it, you’re mine. You’ll always be mine.”
