Review in Portuguese and English:
UPDATE: Relido em 10 de fevereiro de 2017.
Os heróis se separam após trágico acidente em que heroína perde o bebê enquanto herói está em uma missão na qual ele se voluntariou.
Enquanto ela enfrenta problemas com depressão, baixa auto estima e a mania de perfeição, nosso herói foge dos problemas e cada vez passa mais tempo fora de casa em missões. Mas desta vez ele exagera e não está lá na hora que ela mais precisava dele.
Quando ele volta para uma casa vazia ele se dá conta da burrada que fez.
Oito anos mais tarde eles se reencontram e posso dizer que o encontro é explosivo.
A história além de muito bem escrita tem aqueles elementos que adoramos: cenas quentes entre o casal, ciúmes, ação, tiroteio, explosões, caras malvados sendo perseguidos, deliciosos motoqueiros, ex militares, machos alfas marcando território deles e uma mulher renascida e cheia de confiança.
Gostei muito e recomendo!
SPOILER: Adorei que ela continuou com a vida e teve um relacionamento com Ice.
The heroes break up after tragic accident in which heroine loses her baby while hero is on a mission in which he volunteered.
While she is facing problems with depression, low self esteem and the mania of perfection, our hero hides their problems and spend more time away from home on missions. But this time he exaggerates and he is not there at the time that she needed him most.
When he returns to an empty home he realizes the mistake he made.
Eight years later they meet again and I can say that the meeting is explosive.
The very well written story has those elements that we love: hot scenes between the couple, jealousy, action, shooting, explosions, bad guys being chased, delicious bikers, ex military, alpha males marking their territory and a woman reborn and full of confidence.
I enjoyed and recommend.
SPOILER: I love that she continued with her life and had a relationship with Ice.
