Although I really liked the first installment of the series, this one fell short for me.
Cody was just released from jail for manslaughter only to find out that his teenage love Macy and best friend Jimmy have moved on with each other. Cody still thinks that Macy is the one and tries to go back to where they left off 8 years ago regardless of any consequence. Crazy events take place and Cody and Macy now have a shot at the HEA, but nothing ever comes easy.
While Cody struggles with acclimating to his new life and his need for revenge, he is re-evaluating his relationship with Macy and what he wants out of life. Meanwhile, Macy is keeping a secret that she knows will most likely keep Cody away for good and Harley, an old childhood friend of Cody makes her appearance and Cody is torn between the two females as they both played a significant role during his early years.
Once the secrets are revealed and real love is professed, who will Cody have his HEA with?? I totally did not see the ending coming and maybe it could have been omitted from the story altogether and I’m not sure why the author threw that in there. I’ll give this one 3 stars, but I’m not giving up on the author yet! I loved Dax’s story and I look forward to the next installment of the series!
