Arrochar Adair has loved her brother's ex-bodyguard and best friend, Mac Galbraith, for years. Once upon a time, she was too young for him, but now that she's a mature woman in her thirties, Arro can see no issue with their difference in age. Yet something deeper, a problem much more difficult to surmount, is keeping them apart.
Mac Galbraith remembers clearly the night Arro became everything to him, no longer just his best friend and boss's younger sister. However, having made many mistakes over the years, there is one mistake Mac is determined not to make: to believe that he is worthy of Arrochar Adair. Allowing them to grow closer during his daughter, Robyn's, return has proven his undoing. And when Arro forces the subject of their relationship, his response pushes her away. He just never meant for it to destroy them completely.
Devastated by Mac's final rejection, Arro is determined to move on without him in her life, though he seems intent on staying put. And when the Adair family face a new threat, one that may have ties to Mac's past, Arro can't seem to be rid of the man. In fact, Mac will do anything to protect her.
But with so much hurt between them, will Arro let Mac close enough to guard her from their enemy... before it's too late?
4.5 Heart Review by Ashley
I have been waiting for Arro and Mac's story to unfold since the Adair family saga began and Samantha Young didn't let me down at all. It was everything I wanted and so much more.
I adored Arro. She was strong, confident and brave. And in love with Mac, her brother's best friend for longer than she can remember. Oh Mac. He was strong, patient, protective but also a mess. Carrying around years worth of guilt and anger towards himself over things that were quasi out of his control.
There was no denying the yearning these two had towards each other. Arro wore her want and hurt on her sleeve. Mac tried, and failed to hide his attraction. But when threats that were too reminiscent of what went down with Lachlan started coming in targeting Arro, all bets were off. Protective Mac was on the case. If only his own demons weren't coming back to haunt him and Arro would let him get close after what went down...
Emotional. Dramatic. Tender. Sexy. Twisted. Dangerous. Arro and Mac's friends to lovers, second chance romance had me hanging on every word. The chemistry, heady tension, the anticipation...all of it made Always You unputdownable. Gah! I can not wait to get back to the Highlands to see what is in store for this family next!
