I loved Jensen Rose with everything I had; then he stomped my heart to dust. Now I hate him, so why is it that I can’t get the sexy, infuriating father of my child out of my head?
“Sure you’ve noticed already, but it looks like big brother wants to rip your organs out through a hole he’s plannin’ to punch in your chest.”
I turned to look over my shoulder toward the section I knew Shane’s family would be sitting in, along with their other friends. They never sat anywhere else but at the pool tables whenever they came in. And sure enough, Stone Hendrix was looking at me exactly how Gage had described.
The dude had about two inches on me and a couple pounds worth of muscle. Every inch of his beefy arms was covered in colorful ink in intricate designs, only making him look even more menacing than he already did.
I’d only met the man twice back when Shane and I were together, but it had been enough for the dude to scare the absolute piss out of me. Now, not so much. I hadn’t been in a fight in years, but that didn’t mean I’d gotten rusty. If anything, with the skills I’d picked up during my time in the service, I was even better at it than I had been back then. It was just that I had my anger issues in check now.
I looked to his left and spotted Scooter sitting next to him—only slightly smaller but no less threatening—looking at me with the same scowl. Instead of turning away, I jerked my chin up, letting them know I wasn’t going to be intimidated into leaving. They knew why I was here. Hell, everyone in Redemption knew. I was here to get my family back, and I wasn’t going to let anyone get in the way of that.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Well, mind blown! Bittersweet is the kind of second chance romance that gives you all the feels. Strong heroine, groveling hero who knows he did wrong and won’t let the love of his life slip through his fingers a second time without a fight. But once I got to know Jensen’s backstory — I changed my tune about the guy. Yes, leaving Shane when she was pregnant and disappearing for 5 years was a dick move. And I am SO glad that she was strong and didn’t fall at his feet when Jensen first came back to town. She really made him work for every morsel she gave him. But rich kid Jensen grew up in such a horrible situation, that it really made me feel for him. And I understood why he left Shane the way that he did.
This second-chance romance is full of so much heart. It wasn’t easy to read at times especially in the flashback chapters about Jensen and Shane as teenagers. But the love that Jensen and Shane share is a once-in-a-lifetime love at first sight kind of love, and that shines through right to the very end and that HEA.
I love this series and can’t wait to see which lady manages to have Stone fall to his knees! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
