I lent my heart to the bad boy, and he did exactly what I expected he would. He broke it.
And the guy I should have been with—he’s still here. He tries to take my mind off everything I’ve lost while showing me what I could have. I’m ready for a new start, to fall in love again … to do what I should have done in the first place.
Everything seems perfect.
Then the past comes walking back in. I thought I was over him, but one look and I know that’s not true. We went through too much together for those feelings to completely fade away.
When my past and present collide, how am I supposed to choose? They both love me, and I love them.
A heart will be broken … and it could be mine.
“If I had come home sooner, would I have had a chance?” he asks, sinking down in the bed until we’re eye to eye. He knows he’s making it impossible for me to skirt around the truth.
Eyes don’t easily lie to eyes.
“Yes,” I whisper. “I waited for you. Until New York, it would have been you.”
His fingers come up, gently brushing a piece of hair from my forehead. “I really fucked up with you, didn’t I?”
“Neither of us was in the right place. It wasn’t our time.”
He moves closer, brushing his thumb against my cheek. My conscience whispers but the tequila screams. “When will it be our time?”
I think about Pierce. This weekend. Everything. “It may never come, or maybe, it’s already passed.”
“I’m going to fight for you,” he declares, propping himself up on his elbow to look down at me. “I thought I could let you go if I knew it would make you happy, but after sitting alone in this apartment all weekend while you were with him, I don’t think I can do that.”
I swallow hard. “And, if you don’t win?”
“I’ve already lost, so what do I have left to lose?”
And, he’s right. He’s already lost so much that the risk is minimal.
“Pierce trusts me,” I blurt, my palms sweating against the sheets.
He leans in, kissing my cheek. “He shouldn’t trust me, not when he has the one thing I want.”
He slips out of my bed without looking back, carefully closing the bedroom door behind him. He wanted the last word, and he got it.

5 “listen to your heart” Stars!!
Heads up!! This will not be a long review. I am struggling with how much I loved this story and want to express that love , but yet don’t want to ruin 50% of it for you all!! I LOVED Lies Unspoken and was a nervous wreck starting Love Unspoken, after the ending of Lies Unspoken. The author REALLY made me sweat and feel confused during the first half of this story. The struggle was REAL!!!
“I trust him more than I’ve ever trusted anyone, but it’s hard to be loved by one man when your heart is with another.”
I went into this story knowing who I wanted Lila to choose, and with each chapter, I kept changing my mind. One minute Blake was all remorseful of his previous behavior, and then the next he would go and do something stupid again. All while Pierce kept being the knight in shining armor there to rescue her. How is a woman supposed to stick with her original choice when things like this keep happening?!? Still struggling, here!! 😉
“Blake left me.”
I was a huge Blake fan after Lies Unspoken, so I REALLY had a hard time with the ending of Lies Unspoken, and with this story when it came time to choose. How do you choose between Mr. Perfect, and the guy that feels like your soul mate?!? Poor Lila!! I sure am happy it was her decision and not mine. But, who wouldn’t want to be stuck in a love triangle like this one. I mean, you can’t really go wrong with either of these guys…except that Blake has LOTS of issues.
“I think you’re kind of lucky. I can’t find a man and you have two who would give an arm to be with you.”
Oops, so I guess I did have more to say than I thought. And if you can’t tell by my rambling, I LOVED this addition to this series. The series started off great and this part made an already awesome series even better. This is one of my favorite authors. She always sucks me right in to her stories, and has been known to make me cry some big fat ugly tears, too. LOL! I am not only reading her words, I am feeling for the characters. I always prepare myself for a book hangover when I finish one of her books.
So, I sure hope I have sold you on this series, you do not want to miss out on this sweet, steamy, and heartbreaking love triangle of a story 🙂 Happy Reading!!!
