We met five years ago when I was her family’s bodyguard.
Our time together was a secret.

Her touch was different…. addictive.
I fell hard and fast and then I left.

I’ve thought about her every day since.

As I sit here at a wedding watching her with her new boyfriend……I have regrets.

Regrets for the past things I’ve done.
But I won’t regret what I’m about to do.

She’s telling me no but her body’s telling me yes.

I need her beneath me.
I’m having her tonight.


It’s the little things I remember about Ben.
His smile and the icing sugar he had on his pancakes.

What started out as private jokes between us soon turned into private visits.

The quiet man at the back of the crowd.

His dry wit made me laugh.
His dominant body ruined me forever

He never told me he loved me, until he was leaving.
That was five years ago.

Things are looking up for me.
I met someone, someone special.

But Ben is back.

I find myself thinking about him ……more than I should.
No matter how hard my heart is freefalling from my chest.

I will never go back there.

You only get to break my heart once.




My Thoughts

This was a great read.  I had not previously read anything by TL Swan so I wasn’t sure what to expect but now I feel like I have been missing out on so much.  Ben and Bridget have history together.  They were in a secret relationship while he was bodyguard to her family until he left them, and her, without a real explanation.  Naturally she was devastated and never quite got over Ben.   When Ben suddenly reappears in her life five years later, all those feelings come rushing back in.  But life isn’t a fairytale and pasts don’t always stay in the past.

I love a good alpha male figure and it seems this author knows how to write one of those.  As a matter of fact – all her male characters in this book were dominant, possessive and over the top alphas.  I love the lengths that Ben’s character goes through to prove to Bridget that he is ready to be with her for life just really make me swoon.  The author threw in enough comedic moments to add dimension to the book and enough drama to hold the interest of the readers from start to finish.  It was not a short book; it was a good length – about 430 pages – and the pacing was good.   Overall I give this book 4 stars; I now need to go back and look into other books this author has written.
