Synopsis from Goodreads:

Two years ago, Jason and Kate Ryker were brought together by grief and bound to one another by love. Now married, they’re confronting their fears together.

But heartbreak finds them again, and the ties that bind Kate and Ryke are tested as she struggles against fear and sadness. As a grief counselor, Kate understands all too well the pain of her clients. And while her husband’s career as an NHL forward is at an all-time high, he’s coping with the frustration of feeling powerless as his wife's hopes slip away.

Kate’s unexpected journey sheds light on the fear that imprisons her, and reveals that she is the only one who can set herself free.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

I loved being back with Kate & Ryke. It was really intriguing to see what happened after their happily ever after. This instalment was much more emotional than the first. Rothert combines the hot & steamy that we’ve come to know and love her for along with heartbreak and intense emotions. There was a lot more sweet infused among the spice in this one. Her vivid descriptions bring everything to life in an exquisite way.

I quite enjoyed the way that we got to know Kate and Ryke better in this one. They grow as individuals and as a couple. I must say, however, that Kate got on my nerves more than once. I loved seeing more of Luke as well. Rothert really takes the time to develop her supporting cast in this one. It gives a greater depth to the story as a whole.

As a whole, this was a well written, emotional tale that held my heart. It was a quick, enjoyable read that followed up from the first in the series quite nicely. I’d definitely recommend it to others and I definitely can’t wait to read Luke’s story in the 3rd story.
