Treachery. Destiny. Forgiveness.
She’s the one woman he could never shake or forget. Nora Cantres was buried so fucking far inside Connelly he didn’t have breath left for anyone else. She’d managed to avoid him for more than a decade, but now the running stops. He’s made damn sure of it. Yet just when he’s got her in his bed, in his life, the secret she’s been hiding is unexpectedly revealed, blowing his entire world sky high.
Connelly Colloway was every man’s man. Confident. A little cocky. A whole lot of sexy. Once upon a time Nora thought he was hers, but then he betrayed her in the worst possible way, setting them on paths that didn’t include the other. Now he’s wormed his way back into her life and while she’s never loved anyone but him, she can’t let him back inside. She has too much to hide, too much to lose.
But when Karma finally catches up to them the only question is: can he forgive her monumental deceit or will she lose everything she holds dear, including Connelly?
Book 4 in a 4 book series. Each book features a different brother and each can be read as a STANDALONE. To get the full Colloway Brother experience, however, it’s most enjoyable to read in order.
***Mature readers only, 18+. Features alpha men with foul language and penchant for hot sex.
I absolutely adored Connelly and Nora’s story. Kreig gave us a masterful emotional roller coaster filled with revelation, soul-bearing honesty, fabulous heat (read: awesome sex), and a great theme: forgiveness. Either for yourself or others.
Now look, if you follow my reviews (go ahead and click that button btw) you know I LOVE second chance romance. Like, LOVE, LOVE. So the majority of this series has fed my dang soul. Destination Connelly is no different.
These two characters love each other beyond comparison and yet terrible circumstances and horrible choices kept them apart for over a decade. That’s right, A DECADE. And yup, still full of love. But oh, just because they end up (not telling how but it’s awesome) back in each other’s lives, the sailing is far from smooth.
Connelly is amazing. His tenacious and unstoppable pursuit of his girl is admirable. His reactions to what he learns is understandable and almost endearing. There may be those who disagree with me about that, but this is my review so, whatever. It was, he was, I got him and while he ain’t perfect I was smitten.
“Promises. They’re like bulls-eyes. A big fat fucking black mark square between your eyes, just waiting for something or sometime to come along and take you out.”
Now, you’ve read how I felt about Connelly, I’m on his side. But here’s the thing with an author like Kreig, you root for BOTH of H and h. You defend BOTH of them. You love BOTH Connelly and Nora equally. So when you’re watching the shit-fest go down, you’re not torn, you’re ripped in half and desperate to be put back together.
I love Nora. She’s smart, caring, hard working, territorial (in the best ways), and I wish she was real so I could be her bestie 🙂 I can’t say I didn’t guess a lot of what she went through, but there was just enough “what?!” so keep me glued to my kindle. I could NOT put this book down. I wanted to see Nora get what she deserves, whether it be closure or an HEA.
“My heart has never been so full, yet so profoundly empty at the same time.”
Sigh. Don’t you just love that? Don’t you want to know what could dive a soul to that depth of despair and happiness? READ THE BOOK!!! I swear, you won’t be disappointed.
