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.
*Bleeding Love is the second book in the Hope Town series. It will follow Liam and Megan. Each book in the series is a HEA and can be read as a standalone.*
“I want you, darlin’, to feel. That feeling your body gets when it’s sparking at every nerve. When your skin feels tight and your stomach drops. When you don’t know if your heart is beating in your chest or coming through your throat. I want you to feel the wind in your hair, pulse racing, wild, free as a bird, stomach-dropping rush. I want you to feel.” I pause, bringing my lips to hers in a soft, eyes-open kiss, “everything.”
Bleeding Love is a beautiful, emotional story. Bleeding Love follows the story of Liam and Megan. Megan has been living in the dark since she lost her husband. She uses her pain and grief as a shield to protect herself and not let anyone get close to her. She never wants to experience the pain of loss again. The only light in her life is her daughter Molly. Molly gives her a reason to live and to try to move on. Little did she know that when she met Liam, he was going to turn her world upside down. Little by little, Liam is chipping away at the walls that Megan has built. Most of the time, she doesn’t know if she wants to kiss him or slap him. But, there is just something about Liam. He makes her feel. He makes her remember what it is to be alive…Liam is a strong, determined man. He’s known since the moment he laid eyes on Megan that she was his. “I’m counting, Megan, because I want you more than I’ve wanted anything in my life and that frustrates the shit out of me because you either can’t or won’t see it. I need you to see it, baby. I need you to see.” He was so sure of things that he wasn’t going to let Megan’s fears get in the way. He was going to show her just how great life could be. He is going to break down those walls and if she’s willing to give him her heart, he will never let it hurt again…“My hold never wavers as I make true to my promise and take every single pain filled tear, every ghost of her past that comes shaking from the force of her cries, and I pull that pain deep inside and lock it tight so that it can never hurt her again.”
Bleeding Love is an amazing, captivating story. It is a story of love, loss, finding the strength to let go, move on and taking that second chance at life and love. I loved everything about this story; from the plot to the characters to everything in between. The story was riveting. I couldn’t put it down until I absorbed every last word. It was so easy to get caught up in Megan and Liam’s story.
Liam: I loved his strength and determination. He was a true alpha male. He wouldn’t take no for an answer and worked hard to make Megan “see” things. He brought Megan back to life. Gave her another reason to live. I loved that Liam wasn’t afraid of all the baggage that Megan had. That he loved Molly as his own and would protect her with his life.
Megan: Her pain. Her loss. All so palpable. Her emotions, so easy to understand and relate to. She was an amazing mother to Molly, but really let fear rule her life. Her journey is not an easy one. She has so much to let go of and so much to overcome, but in the end, it’s so worth it.
I loved the connection between Liam and Megan. It was so strong, so beautiful. It was everything. Not only were they great friends, but their chemistry…The chemistry between the two of them just exploded from the pages. I couldn’t get enough of the two of them. I couldn’t wait for Megan to “see”.
“A love worth having, is worth fighting for.” -This is one of my favorite quotes from this book. I think it really sums everything up. This book will make you feel. You will feel EVERYTHING. You will laugh. You will cry. You will swoon. You will smile. You will find hope. You will learn to let go. And most importantly, you will fall in love…………

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.
