I am not okay.
Fifteen months ago, my life was turned upside down when the plane I was piloting went down. Injured and trapped in the wreckage, I had to watch my fiancée die a painfully slow death, which is something that can really mess with your head.
Since that day, I’ve had little desire to do much of anything. Except play hockey, that is. Because that is the one place where the bad memories are banished and I can escape my pain.
But off the ice, I’m spiraling out of control. Losing the grip on my life and putting myself and my career in danger. Now, thanks to a string of bad decisions, I’ve been ordered to complete therapy in order to stay on the team.
The problem? Nora Wayne, my beautiful and somewhat unconventional therapist. I can’t buy into the brand of happy clappy crap this woman is feeding me. What could she possibly understand about the type of loss that I’ve suffered? How does she know anything about finding happiness after losing the most important person in your life?
Turns out, I’ve got a lot to learn, and she’s just the person I need to break through those walls I’ve erected.
I am not okay.But for the first time in a long time, I know that I will be.
If you’ve been following the Arizona Vengeance series then you know Tacker‘s story was one that needed to happen more than anything. We get little glimpses here and there throughout the series, so I was beyond ready to dive in and read about his happy ever after.
From the beginning, we knew the surface story of Tacker and what happened to his fiancee. And I cannot even imagine the pain he has been dealing with. I wholeheartedly loved the support he had constantly surrounding him. And the fact that his team, coach and even the team owner never gave up on him!
I was elated when he finally got his wake-up call to deal with his grief. There are definitely a lot of heartbreaking moments, but I cherished those moments where I was so inspired by his story to move forward.
And that’s where Nora came in. I couldn’t have thought up a more perfect heroine for Tacker, they both understand devastating loss. When we learn what she’s been through, my heart broke all over again for her. She understood Tacker more than anyone.
Their love was a slow burn and I don’t think Sawyer could have done it any other way. We know how deep Tacker’s love was for his fiancee. And he needed to take everything slowly.
Loved this story so much and it was written so perfectly! So happy that Tacker got his happy ever after and I can’t wait to see more glimpses of them in the books to come.
