To him, I was only just Sage, Matt Nichols’ little sister. But I've worshiped Conall my whole life. My brother's best friend. My secret crush. My first and only love. Always hoping he’d really see... me.
And then, a torrent of circumstances ripped through my life. One by one, my family began to crumble. My dad's heart attack. My brother's tragic death. My mother's slipping sanity. And then Conall's abandonment. He took my heart when he left, but he gave me a reason to grow up fast, to be strong, and to live.
Now, just when things finally start looking up, he's back in Bitterroot. Standing before me, not the boy he once was, but a man. Just when I’m on the cusp of living again. Just when I’m starting to feel like I could let go of the past and be happy without him, the feelings I set aside for all those years are raging once again through my veins. My tight control is slipping. The future I've so carefully mapped out now seems so uncertain.
He’s changed, but he hasn’t. I hate him for leaving, but I love him for coming home.
But will he stay? And do I really, truly want him to after he shattered me before?
I loved this one. LOVED!! Sibylla has rapidly become one of my go to buy what ever they put out authors. And Iam already waiting for her next book.
Conall.... swoon worthy Conall. He is all alpha, totally stubborn and will have your toes curling in your shoes. Self loathing is his enemy and he wastes years over misplaced responsibility. These 2 issues cause him to flee. Leaving behind the past as he chases his future. He joins the Army only to find that he can't leave the past in the past.
Sage is Conall's best friends little sister-- no go zone. But she has loved him forever. And he is all she has ever wanted. A chance encounter before he runs, and as she is left with a constant reminder of Conall. Sage is my favorite kind of leading lady. Strong, self sufficient, independent and not willing to rely on a man to support her. She may not have much, but her attitude and outlook on life carry her where she needs to go. Her inner strength is unshakeable, and even when she finds herself in unsure situations, she pushes through.
Always Conall is a story of first love and second chances. How misunderstandings can cloud our judgement and pain can cause us to lash out in ways we normally wouldn't. And once the secrets are out, both Sage and Conall realize they have wasted a lot of time. But in the end it is worth it.
