I’ve loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.
Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It’s that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.
Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.
He’s on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.
Megan’s life fell apart the day the Army came knocking to inform her that her husband had been killed in combat. After Cohen takes her under his wing and brings her into the Corp’s security fold, she’s finally starting to piece the broken parts back together.
Liam Beckett has grown up knowing what a great love is. With parents like Beck & Dee, he has high expectations, but he knows that once he’s found the woman for him, he’ll spend the rest of his life doing everything he can to keep her.
Liam has been drawn to Megan from the moment they met and although he’s sat back and let her stew over their drunken one night stand, he’s done waiting and now it’s time to claim his woman.
I loved how patient Liam was with Megan, but how he also pushed her enough to make her see that life still goes on. He had a great balance of Alpha and sweet going on, just like his Father Beck. I loved Megan too, she wasn’t afraid to put up a fight when it came to Liam, but as with all alpha males he managed to get right under her skin and into her heart.
This was such a touching read and what made it extra special was the relationship Liam developed with Megan’s daughter, that little girl had such a big impact on how this story unfolded. We also get to catch up with the rest of the gang and even some of our old Corp’s Security favourites.
Bleeding Love is the second book in the Hope Town series, but can be read as a stand alone, this told from Dual POV’s.
If your a lover of Alpha Males and haven’t picked up any of Harper’s books, I recommend starting with the Corp’s Security Series followed by this series.
His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”
I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to. I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.
Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back. Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze. Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.
He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body. A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment. His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls. He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.
I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.
His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver. “Feels like heaven,” he says softly. “Everything, darlin’. Feels like everything.”
