She’s his best friend’s widow.
Molly Boyd’s entire world unraveled when tragedy turned the man she loved into her greatest threat. Her ex-husband’s death has left her pregnant and alone, struggling to put her shattered life back together—and her confusing feelings for his best friend aren’t helping matters. For years Jase has been a solid, steady source of comfort and friendship. Now she can’t stop seeing him as something more. And just as she’s wrestling with her shifting feelings, a new danger from her ex’s past threatens everything—including her and her unborn child’s lives.
But she’s always been the one.
Jase Weaver is an expert at unrequited love. Years ago he stood by and watched his best friend marry the woman of his dreams, and he’s endured his suffering in silence ever since. But when Carter’s self-destructive tailspin threatened Molly, Jase stepped in to make her safe. And when Carter died, Jase stepped up to be her rock. Now he can’t stay silent any longer. He’s wanted Molly forever and it’s time she knows it. So when a new threat against her emerges, Jase will put his own life on the line to protect her, no matter the cost.
4 Star Review by Ashley
This is the book I've been waiting for since I started the Crimson Point series. There was so much build up for Molly's book and Kaylea Cross did not disappoint. At all. There was drama, angst, danger and heartache and longing...
My heart just bled for Molly. But it ached for Jase too. For the secret he held in his heart. Molly suffered and survived so much, lost so much that I couldn't help but root for her. She needed some peace and happiness. Not the mess that Carter left behind. Cue Jase's instinct to protect. His need to keep the woman he loved safe from any danger.
One of my favorite things about this book was the flashbacks. The lost moments between Jase and Molly that only added to the longing. The anticipation had me on the edge of my kindle. Reading furiously to see what would happen for these two next. I could feel it coming. I knew when they finally gave in that it would be dynamite and I wasn't let down. It was capital H-O-T. And who knew Jase had a that dirty mouth!
I will say, that while Shattered Vows is toted as a standalone, it would be much easier to follow if you have read the other titles in the series. But other than that Kaylea Cross delivered a one-two punch of romance and intensity. And that little breadcrumb of who the next book in the series will be about has me anxious to return to Crimson Point.
