What a great end to a series about 4 high school friends who grew up to open a automotive business together. Each man has had a hard road to finding happiness and none more tortured than Micah Christian who hasn’t been able to let go of the grief and guilt over something tragic that happened in Afghanistan.
Jewel Jackson went through her own trauma before moving to be by her cousin Delilah (from the first book). She suffers emotionally from an abusive relationship that left her not only weary of men but also with body shaming issues. Through out the other books in the series we knew that deep down Micah and Jewel liked each other but their demons always kept them apart. When a rapist starts victimizing the local women Micah finally decides to push past his pain and vows to protect Delilah.
These were certainly two tortured souls who had a lot of pain they needed to deal with and luckily they opened up enough to admit that the other was a detriment part of what they needed to heal.
This has been a great series and I look forward to future series the author mentions at the end of this book.
