Format: eBook, Paperback
Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life. Four caskets. Two bodies. Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever. Six months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight. Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy. Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don't kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.
Five (4.5) Boundless Stars
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This book is pretty brilliant. It's messed up, horrifying, heartbreaking and just really tears at your soul. I normally don't like when books go back in forth from the past to the future. But the writing was amazing. It flowed better than I would of thought.
As messed up as Jillian aka Jessica was. She's not a victim and would never call herself one. She found some type of Solace with Luke, her psychiatrist, who turned into something more.
Her twin Brother and her have to go into hiding. Changing their names, Jillian and Jackson. Pretty funny Jack and Jill ;) they have to take on these new persona's. Trying to fit into a different world. But it's hard when you can't let go of your past.
This book is hot hot hot.. The sexual experiences and the relationship with her neighbor.
Her pain is real and I think in some ways she enjoys it. It reminds her that she's alive. I enjoyed Jillian aka Jessica. As much craziness is inside of her, she isn't weak. She has her physical strength. And she can also have her sweet caring side. I'm thankful she has Jack to look after her.
I really can't wait for the second installment in this series. I'm patiently waiting to see what happens to Jillian and Jack.
