She’s always been his safe place to land.
Jensen has shared a special bond with Tuck for as long as she can remember, their friendship a language that never needed words. But as life threw her one curveball after another, that secret language turned to stony silence.
He’s always been her protector.
Tuck has looked out for Jensen since the day she was born. As his best friend’s little sister, he’s tried to keep her firmly in the friend category. But she’s always been more.
All it takes is one moment of weakness to send Tuck’s fiercely guarded walls crumbling to the ground. As a new fire burns between them, someone watches. Someone who doesn’t like the new life Jensen’s building for herself.
And they’ll stop at nothing to keep her in the dark.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
GAH! I have been waiting for this book since I took my first trip to Sutter Lake. And let me tell you, Catherine Cowles did not let me down. Jensen and Tuck's friends-to-lovers journey was rife with emotion and had me hanging on every word.
I'll admit I was a bit nervous going in but only because I didn't want anything else bad to happen to Jensen. She had been through a lot, most of it out of her control, but still found a way to push forward. She found solace in her work, her son and her horses. But when an unknown threat starts putting her and the things she loves most in danger, it was Tuck to the rescue.
Oh Tucker. What a strong and protective man. I loved how every rule he set for himself got broken with Jensen. How he couldn't say no even when he tried. How he sacrificed his happiness to try and give Jensen what he thought was best for her (spoiler alert, it wasn't). How when everything was on the line, he didn't let anything stop him from getting to his woman.
This book had me on edge from page one. Full of suspense, mystery, steam and danger, Beautifully Broken Spirit kept me up all hours reading. I had an inkling early on about who was behind all the mayhem and misery that was playing out. But as the story wore on, I doubted myself and was going in a totally different direction. Talk about heart pounding. I was torn between angry and anxious as everything unfolded and the evil doer was revealed. I should've trusted my first instinct- I was right.
The journey that Tuck and Jensen take to finding love with one another is tender and downright touching. They way they battled the demons of their past to pursue their future together gave me belly flutters. And that ending! It was just perfect. My fingers are crossed that Catherine Cowles takes me back to Sutter Lake soon because Kennedy needs a book!
