From the moment she said hello, Travis Hamilton knew without a doubt that Maya Harris was the one. Knowing how hard it is to make a relationship work, he’s ready to fight for them—no matter what trials and tribulations come their way. But what do you do when the woman you're in love with refuses to move your relationship forward? When her secrets become too much to handle? How can you get her to trust you and take a chance on your future?
Maya Harris gave up on love a long time ago. Past experience dictated that what seemed too good to be true, most certainly always was. There’s something about Travis Hamilton though that pushes her to the brink of change—teetering on the edge of giving in to their love and planning on forever. But past mistakes always have a way of rearing their ugly head and putting your future at risk.
True loves and happily ever afters are anything but easy, and never a guarantee. Can love really overcome any obstacle? Can happiness truly come without any strings?
I loved the story of Elizabeth and Grant in book one. however the story of Maya and Travis was a little hard for me to love as hard as I loved the first book. I found myself struggling to love Maya. I was frustrated with her through a lot of the story. I love the characters, but hated her attitude and way she treated Travis. I spent a large majority of the book mad at her because of the attitude and way she handled the cards she was dealt. her depression was hard to read about. I understood why she reacted the way she did, why she felt that way, but I just wanted her to snap out of it. she was only focused on what she went through. not thinking about how Travis was hurting too, and I just found that so frustrating. she just couldn't snap out of it. I thought for sure she would lose him because of it. of course Travis proves is wrong and shows us what a real man would do, how a real man would handle the situation. I think it made me fall in love with him even more.
I love that we got to see more Elizabeth and Grant. I also love that we get to see the true progression of their friendships and relationships. we also get to see a little of their children's too.
I think jessica did great with this book. she sucks you in to the story, breaks your heart and makes you feel like you took the journey with the characters.
When the car pulled up to my building, Travis helped me out and followed me in and up to my third floor apartment. At the door, I extricated my keys from my purse and turned to face him. His eyes blazed as he looked down on me, making my palms sweat and my heart race in anticipation of our first official kiss.
When his head dipped, my breath caught. When his mouth touched mine, I instantly opened for him. When his tongue swept inside, I completely lost myself to the feel of it brushing mine as he explored me in the most sensual kiss I had ever had.
His hands came up to frame my face. His head tilted and he deepened the kiss. My toes curled as heat swept through my body with a blinding fierceness.
He broke the kiss far too soon and rested his forehead on mine. "Who knew a kiss could feel like this?"
"I know," I whispered. My eyes finally opening to take in his gorgeous face so close to mine.
"Let me stay tonight, Maya."
The idea was oh so intriguing, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. We barely knew each other, and I didn't want to move too fast.
"Let's take it slow, Travis," I whispered, afraid he would get mad and that would be the end of what promised to be something completely amazing.
"No longer the happiest man in the city, Maya," he informed me and my stomach dipped at the rough and raspy sound of his voice. "Happiest man in the world."
"Goodnight, sweetheart. I'll call you tomorrow." He kissed my forehead and took a step back.
I opened my door and turned back to look at him in front of the stairwell. He had the most endearing expression on his face, and I was pretty sure I fell in love with him right then.
