Tierney and Grace Rivers had a bright, uncomplicated future ahead of them, but
the accident changed that. In the aftermath, there are wide reaching
consequences, not only for Cole and Grace, but their loved ones too.

and fight for their future? 

With
just one glimmer of hope before them, will a small miracle have the strength to
save their hearts?

EXCERPT:
When
Olivia and Ashley leave the kitchen and Charlie moves to the fridge to get the
drinks, I take a second to adjust myself. A few deep breaths and I’m willing
myself to calm down. Damn, that woman
drives me all sorts of crazy.
I start to relive the feel of her against me
when the loud clank of beer bottles getting slammed down on the counter grabs
my attention.
 
            “You want to explain what the hell that was all about?”
Charlie demands, and when I look at his face, I see unbridled fury there. What the hell?
 
            “What exactly do I need to explain?” I question, knowing
full well he’s referring to him and Olivia catching Ashley and I in a slightly
compromising position.
 
“Don’t
play dumb with me, Sam. My family’s been through enough crap in the last few
weeks without having you come in and causing any more problems.”
 
“Your
family?” I question, because hell, I’m not going to stand here and let him act
all high and mighty with me. As much as sometimes I do feel out of place in the
Tierney’s, they are the only family I have and I love every one of them, and
that includes Gracie now too. Then I have the sudden thought that maybe Charlie
has a thing for Ashley. It makes sense. She’s fantastic with Ruby and loyal to
Gracie. She’s been around Charlie all her life. Maybe he wants her and is
jealous I was kissing her instead of him.
 
“Yes,
my family,” he snaps back. “You need to leave Ashley alone, Sam. She’s not a
toy for you to play with.”
 
 

SYNOPSIS:


** This book is
recommended for people over 18 years due to strong language and sexual
content.**
Grace Rivers is your everyday twenty-five year old. She could have the world at
her feet, but instead chooses to help run the family business. After
experiencing great loss early in her life, Grace values what’s most important:
her family and friends. But she aches to find that certain someone—that one
great, passionate love who values family as much as she does.Cole Tierney loves his life. He has a wonderful family, a loyal best friend and
a successful career as an ER doctor. The only downside is he wants someone to
share it with. After being used and left heartbroken, he wants to find someone
who will love him for him and not his or his family’s status. 

“Every beat my heart makes is for you. Every time it beats faster it’s
because of you—because you’re near me, because of your smile—because you take
my breath away.” 

Their two hearts collide by chance and an undeniable connection is quickly
made.

But when others are plotting against their happiness, will their love flatline,
or will the rhythm of their hearts continue to beat as one?

    Great continuation of Cole and Gracie’s story! After all they went through in the first book, this one has just as much craziness that finds them. Between Cole`s ex and Gracie`s ex it is a wonder neither of them are in the nuthouse! But true love always finds a way to work out in the end. I love how all the secondary characters in this series are written. They are woven into the story so well and you feel as if you know them. I would love to see Sam and Ashley get their own book….Surrendering My Heart maybe? 🙂 I need more of all of these characters and look forward to more work from Velvet Reed. She has mastered a beautiful romance loaded with emotion and suspense in this series! -Chell
