Pressing his forehead to mine, he closed his eyes and squeezed them tight. “How can you love me?” he asked, his voice gruff. “I do fucked up things that hurt the people closest to me. I can’t promise you that’ll change.”
“No, but you can promise me you’ll try. That’s good enough for me.”
His heated gaze landed on mine, his breaths deep and raspy. The raw energy radiating from him made me tremble in anticipation. “You just fucked up, buttercup,” he growled low. Lifting me in his arms, he carried me off the dock and laid me down on the grass, his body hard on top of mine.
“Why is that?” I whispered. He pushed his cock against me and I moaned, desperately aching to feel him inside me.
“You have awakened something I never knew existed. It rips at my soul and scares the fuck out of me, yet it also makes me feel alive. I don’t want to let it go. I don’t want to let you go.” Lowering his head, he kissed my cheek and trailed his lips down to my neck.
“What are you saying?” I asked.
He brushed his thumb across my lips and lifted his head. “I don’t know if what I feel is love. I’ve never had it before. But goddamn, it sure does feel like it. Whatever happens between us, I can’t let it end. Tell me you don’t want it to.”
I moaned as he lifted my tank top and bra and tossed them to the ground. “I want us to be together, Camden. We don’t know what’s going to happen once everything’s over, but I can promise you my love will not change . . . even when you go back home.”
Camden's Redemption by L.P. Dover My rating: 4 of 5 stars Camden was tortured soul. This made him do so many regretful things that he didn't think he'd ever be able to get passed it or even forgiveness from those around him. Now that he's forced to go into hiding while his friends catch the bad guys that are after him, he has the moment to step back and reflect on the things he's done. He wants redemption but doesn't think he deserves it. When he meets Brooklyn, there's something about her that makes him want to be the man she sees. She doesn't see the famous fighter, she doesn't see the man who's done the horrible things he's done. She sees the man he really is...the man he could be if someone just believed in him. While he run and hide, Brooklyn takes the opportunity to get to know Camden for who he is. His attraction to Brooklyn runs very deep. When he first meets her, he sees right away what a strong woman she is. Not just mentally and emotionally but physically as well. He sees her as the type of woman that can keep him on his toes and she does exactly that. She has faith in him when some closest to him do not. We see his transformation in this book. We see first hand how the love of a strong person can help us overcome our biggest demons. All it takes is a little faith. I'm looking forward to the final novel in this series...but not looking forward to the series ending. *a copy was provided by the athor in exchange for an honest review. View all my reviews
