Now, forever, and every day in between.
me who held you in their arms. Tell me you don’t want me to kiss you right now,
yeah? Touch you, take you to our bed and make sweet fuckin’ love to all night
long, until there isn’t an inch of your skin I haven’t kissed, licked, or
touched. Tell me you don’t feel me,” he whimpered, placing his hand over my
“Creed,” I whispered in a voice I didn’t recognize. Trying to reel in my
feelings, hide the fact that he still had an effect on me.
After all this time.
“Tell me any of that, and I swear I’ll leave you alone, cuz at the end of the
day… All I ever wanted was for you to be happy, and if that’s not wit’ me, then
at least I have the memory of the love of my fuckin’ life.” He placed his
forehead on mine, bringing his hands up to frame my face again. “Say the words,
babe,” he groaned in a tone that made my stomach flutter and my body warm. His
mouth so close to mine that I could feel him breathe on me. The smell of cigarettes
and mint took over my senses. As if he was testing me, he licked his lips
slowly, provoking me. Proving that he was right. I shut my eyes. I had to. The
realization was too hard to admit, and I knew he could see it in my gaze.
He knew me. “Creed,” I panted, my breathing mimicking his. “Please…”
“Please what, baby?” he rasped as if he was hanging on by a thread.
Waiting for me to say the magic words that would
set us both free.

I’m torn. I’m giving this 3.5 stars and I don’t know if I want to round up or down.
This was the conclusion to Creed and Mia’s story. If you recall, I wasn’t totally happy with the first book in this series (<a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1788891849?book_show_action=false&from_review_page=1″>see my review here</a>). While I got more of Creed and Mia, I got them with Noah thrown in the mix. Let me stop right here and say I normally do NOT read love triangles, but I figured this wouldn’t be too bad since Mia loved Creed, and has loved him since she was 9, regardless of her situation with Noah. So, up until the 50% mark I was ok. I understood what was going on and why Noah was around and everything. But then! That happened and once again, I understood the character motivations so I was ok. BUT then! And while I was hesitant, I figured it would all work out for the good and we would get back to Creed and Mia.
BUT THEN! At the 73ish% mark, I put the book down and had to call my BFF. I actually told her I was done and I wasn’t finishing it. I can’t express to you my TOTAL disappointment in the characters. She felt it wasn’t right…not necessarily *wrong*, but just not right. And he KNEW she was not feeling right. That’s why he kept putting it off for so long. And the other he witnessed it. I turned off the Kindle and played some Candy Crush and Croppsies before deciding that M. wouldn’t leave us like that and I returned to reading. And sadly, it stayed the way it was for a good long while.
Creed took care of the MC business. We met el Santo. We saw el Diablo again. That was pretty interesting. I was slightly confused as to how come the main focus of Creed’s dad’s mess wasn’t acquired at any point in between when he first wanted her and when he got her. He had 7 years. But at least that scumball got what he deserved. And through it all, we were shown what we all knew all along…Creed is amazing. His love for Mia was never wavering and although he thought she deserved better than him, I think it was the other way around and he deserved better than Mia.
When finally, FINALLY, Mia and Creed are together again, I have to admit I did love it. I wish we would have had more of them, same wish as first book. The epilogue was wonderful and had me smiling.
Once again I’ll say that M. Robinson can write an amazing story that sucks you in whether you feel comfortable with it or not. You’ll keep reading knowing she’s a romantic at heart 😉 And I’ll also say again, what bothered me here may not bother other readers and that is perfectly ok since we all have different tastes and triggers 🙂
*thanks to M. for sharing this book with me*
