Our Review

“She was magnificent. The love of my life.”

Short, sweet and hot – Elle Aycart comes back with a companion novella featuring Cole and Christy our beloved couple from Heavy Issues. I absolutely loved this couple and remember how touching Christy’s story was and how the dominant and controlling Cole made me cry with his childhood memories and struggles which made him come across almost arrogant and rude.

‘He used to hate intimacy. Used to feel suffocated. Now? Now he didn’t seem to be able to breathe without Christy nearby.’

I welcomed them back into my life and read with a smile on my face as we also get to catch up with the other Bowen brothers and their pregnant wives. A reunion if you will. However, this story is Cole’s and Christy’s and old demons resurface for both culminating into a problematic time for our passionate couple.

“Don’t let me fuck this up,” he begged, his voice breaking. “Please.”

Body issue is a terrible thing to live with and it doesn’t help when those you love and hold dear assert their low opinion on you, continuously grinding that self-esteem into the ground. Our Christy still suffers but you can see and feel her strength simmering beneath the surface growing and waiting to be unleashed into a permanent residence. Love her to bits!

As for Cole; this stoic man who doesn’t suffer fools gladly is softening from the Christy effect, the love of his life. Old habits are hard to break though and that emotional barrier is still there. Sure a few layers have been knocked off but it soon rebuilds when a name from the past reinserts itself into his present with a shock to the system.

‘She demanded surrender and intimacy at a level that scared the living shit out of him, but being without her terrified him even more.’

So, Elle Aycart sets a little ‘something something’ up very nicely in a story full of passion, laughs and emotion. If you’re a fan of this Author already, you’ll love Heavy Secrets. If Elle Aycart is new to you go start at the beginning with James – filthy mouth – Bowen & Tate’s story in More than Meets the Ink (Bowen #1). You’ll fall in love with both this Author as well as her Bowen Brothers!

“What do my poor bros have to do for Valentine’s Day so that their Steak and BJ Day a month from now won’t degrade into a handy and a hamburger?”

Synopsis

Christy Sheridan has come a long way from the physical and emotional wreck she used to be. She’s made Alden her home and is happily engaged to a man who loves and accepts her for who she is, curves, quirks, and geekiness included. Life is good. Until mommy dearest blows into town to “help” her clueless daughter seal the deal. 

Cole Bowen is experiencing a world of firsts: first time in love, first engagement, first Valentine’s, first in-laws. He’s found the woman of his dreams, so he figured dealing with Martha Sheridan was a small price to pay. That is before his monster-in-law plants herself in their home and inside Christy’s head, stirring up old demons and destroying her newly regained self-esteem. And while his hands are full with trying to neutralize their meddlesome guest, a mysterious phone call turns his world upside down.

With ghosts from the past resurfacing and threatening to tear Cole and Christy apart, can they make it to the wedding they both so desperately want, or will heavy secrets send their relationship to the breaking point?
