s about He just stands there in his teeny tiny towel and takes itWhat an exciting start to an amazing story It grabbed my attention and kept it rom beginning to end I couldn t wait to Before My Heart Stops: A Memoir find out what Elara was mad about and I was even anxious to see what Tanner was going to do about it And then I was counting down how long it would takeor them to burn the house downWhat I didn t expect was to get so emotionally attached to the characters and their backstory They both have painful pasts and a good reason The Yankee Club for their cautious approach to dating

different with gifts and donationsor her rec centerWill Tanner be able to convince Elara that he is different Can Elara let her past go and let Tanner in Will Tanner share his past with herI love this

although she knows better Tanner appears to be one of the nice guys But can she trust that what he shows the world is the real himTanner notices Elara while leaving the The Mother Zone field after practice He makes a plan to learn who she is but is shocked when the woman comes barging in while he and the team are changing He doesn t have a clue what she s talking about but dang the woman is hot even while spewing all her anger at him Seeing her in her element at the recreation center shines a light on the strong independent woman that only pulls him to her Now he sinally got a chance and all he has to do is allow her to control her life including dealing with her past I really enjoyed this story although I m not a big The Void fan of heroines who are ball busters which Elara most certainly was However her character neverit into the mold that those around her tried to put her in so I tried to understood why she was that way but I still had a hard time connecting with her On the other hand I love a hero who goes The Poke Cookbook: The Freshest Way to Eat Fish full throttle into protective mode over his woman and that was exactly who Tanner was He was also genuinely sweet and caring and he never thought of himselfirst but the ones he loved Totally swoon worthyThis is a ast paced read with plenty of chemistry and heat as well as some strong support rom secondary characters as well as some heart clinching moments in regards to Elara s kids I would have liked to have had a The Somme: Heroism and Horror in the First World War further into theuture epilogue that also covered them as well as the center because I had grown to care about them as much as Elara but what we were given was okay I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by
