This is book #2, in the Arden St Ives series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.
Arden's story continues with his on and off again relationship trial with Caspian. He puts himself out there in the hopes that he can help heal the coldest of hearts. While it seems a good patch for a time, there is always the human factor.
Caspian does not want to be fixed, nor does he want to come across weak. His view of Arden trying to keep him close is skewed by those who have claimed to love him before. This would take all day and a slew of psychoanalysis to try and explain. For now, we must accept he is not ready to move on.
This story was so good and had the upswing going for it. There was heat, passion, love, and so much more. I was very pleased to finally see character development in many of the characters involved. I cannot wait to read the next installment and hope the author hurries and has pity on me. I give this title a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
