Coming home to a quiet, dark house.
Meals by myself, because she was already done.
Excuses and apologies, they were never enough.
But even with that, when I touched her—when she arched under me and pulled me deeper— we couldn’t get back to where we needed to be.
Where we used to be.
It was all frustration.

Because even though she was no longer my student, the chemistry was always there.
Adele and I loved each other.
We thought we were unshakeable.

But love isn’t always enough.

It wasn’t enough when I constantly disappointed her.
It wasn’t enough when loss cleaved us in two.
And when she left me, love was not enough.

She didn’t know yet that I’d never stop fighting for her.
But she would.

**Author’s note- Let’s be real clear that this is BOOK TWO of a duet, and you’re going to want to read Tempting before you read this one. Adele and Nathan started their story in that book, and you’ll get the same sex, fighting, and cursing that you did in the first. But if you want it to make sense, read Tempting first. If any of that offends you, please avoid them both.**

This book revisits Adele and Nathan who feature in the first book Tempting. This showcases the next stage of their lives as they are now living together and seeing where their relationship is heading.

There is this change in the story and I am glad that they opted to do a topic that is often overlooked in books. It was done really well and I could feel the heartache, the pain and the feels all the way through the book. The vulnerability shone through and it showed that relationships do have their ups and down but at the end of the day, they tend to be stronger.

Nathan is a little bit dismissive at times and I wanted to head-butt some sense into him. He doesn’t seem to take into account how Adele feels. It can’t be easy living under his dead wife’s shadow. He does however make moves to change that because it is not fair to Adele in any way.

I’m proud of the journey they have taken, it shows growth and I’m so happy that they’ve got that for themselves there is this feeling of them coming full circle. This is a great book for them to solidify themselves as a couple. If you’re a fan of the series to date then I’m sure this book is great for you!
