Craving Absolution (The Aces #3)by Nicole Jacquelyn
Farrah Miller and Cody “Casper” Butler have a longstanding relationship that both refuse to discuss.
It isn’t romantic.
It may not even be classified as a friendship.
Casper’s been saving Farrah from herself for longer than he’d care to admit, watching silently as she drowned herself in alcohol. Then, when she finally got her act together, he left. He told himself he was giving her time to sort herself out. He tried to give her space.
But getting shot in the chest can change a man’s perspective, and Casper’s done waiting.
When he shows up on her doorstep one night, everything changes.
He’s the man who’s seen her at her very worst.
She’s his weakness.
He runs when things get hard.
She never lets anyone see below the surface and is terrified of being abandoned.
He knows it’s a long shot, that there’s a good chance she’ll never drop her guard for him—but he has to try. Because a life with Farrah is exactly what he wants—even if he has to fight her for it.
5 of 5 Stars (is there a 6 star option???)
This series just keeps getting better and better.
Oh Em Gee.... I LOVED this. I loved this so much I did not want to have to put it down. I was reading in between hair clients and putting people under the dryer to process their color that I do not normally put under the dryer, all because I needed to know what was going to happen next..... yes, that good.
I have loved this series since the 1st book, Craving Constellations. And each book just gets better that the one before it. And Iam seriously hoping that the author has something up her sleeve for another one. And with the way this one ended, she left it wide open for book 4...
Cody-- Oh my... yum!!! We have gotten to see him grow up as the series has gone on. From awkward lanky teenager to full blown alpha man. And when he decides he wants something-- he takes it. I loved the way the author wrote this character. I felt so many emotions as I was reading. And although Cody did not always make the right choices, I was able to identify with his reasoning, even if it was jacked.
Farrah -- not your doormat kind girl. Loved her. She was violently independent and was not about to let some guy boss her around or turn her into someone she did not want to be. Her sheer will to survive after all she had been through growing up is enough to awe you. Her strength of character and deep rooted need to take care of herself, made me instantly like her.
Drama but not to much. Angst in just the right amount. Questions that keep you turning the pages. And a love story that has spanned the years and created a bond that in the end can not be broken. Perfection!!!
Is 6 stars an option???
