I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.
Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.
Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.
He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

I’m a huge Harper Sloan fan. With that being said, some of her books I like better than others. And with Bleeding Love, I liked it, but it wasn’t one of my favorite of her books. I did still enjoy it though. Just not as much as her others.
I liked Liam or as they called him Lee. I don’t really like his nickname Lee. I don’t really know why I don’t like it but I’m just not a fan of it. I really liked Liam’s character. I loved that he was a sweetheart, but he was also an alpha too. And I loved him with Megan’s little girl. He is going to be such a great father/step-father.
Megan’s character was ok. I mean she wasn’t horrible or anything, but Harper does have other Heroine’s that I like more than her.
She had some things that I liked about her and some things that I didn’t. I didn’t like how she was so stubborn when it came to Liam. At the very beginning you can tell that they would be great together, but she has some hang ups she needs to get through. Which I do understand, but I just wished that she would have realized sooner what she was missing out on. Another thing that bothers me was how she treated Dani sometimes. It wasn’t that she was exactly mean to her, it was just her not wanting to share anything from her past.
Somethings that I did love about her character was her career choice. I love what she does. And I think any reader will. Another thing; she was a great mother to her daughter. And she was a good friend when she gets everything out in the open.
I will say I loved Axel, Izzy and Nate in this book. Nate is hilarious. And I’m really excited for his book.
I do wish that the other children were in these books more than they are. Well, and Sway too! I really miss his character.
Harper’s others books have some suspense thought out the book, but this one didn’t and I thought this one was her most boring book yet. And after learning about Megan’s past I figured that something would happen that would have to do with that but it didn’t.
I loved Unexpected Fate, it’s probably my favorite of her books so far it was a solid 5/5 stars for me. I didn’t like this one as much as her others or UF, but I still did like. I liked Liam and Megan together after she realizes Liam is awesome. This one is just slower and not as fast paced as I would have liked it to be. But, I will continue to read her books. And she’s still in my top five favorite authors because she created my tortured hero Maddox. Maddox is still my favorite Corps guy and I hope his daughters get their own books.
His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”
I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to. I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.
Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back. Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze. Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.
He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body. A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment. His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls. He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.
I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.
His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver. “Feels like heaven,” he says softly. “Everything, darlin’. Feels like everything.”
About the Author
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!
Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
