Ahhhh this book really spoke to me! It’s probably my absolute favorite in the series! Nick is the Italian stallion coming from a traditional upper middle class Italian family. He’s never wanted for anything and was taught the value of a dollar. He’s slowly building a name for himself with the gym that he’s opened up. He also teaches a little bit of yoga at a local studio. He has one rule and it’s to never mix business with pleasure. Although many have tried to tame the stallion, Nick never take-up any of the offer’s from his student’s or fellow yoga instructors…..that is until he see’s this ethereal beauty walk into his class one day.
Honor’s struggling after the suicide of her brother and has been struggling long before then. In fact the first pages of the book has Honor cutting herself in order to deal with the pain the only was she know’s how. Money is of no concern to her, she’s a billionaire e heiress so she’s never had the need to be driven to do anything. She’s just going through the motion’s of life. After a serious heart to heart with her deceased brother’s boyfriend, she decides to get help and see a therapist. Someone you might know if you’ve read other book’s in this series.

This book was just everything to me. The author did a great job balancing the really serious aspects of the book such as the cutting and suicide and also throwing in some extremely searing sexy scenes! I thought the author did a good job of not romanticizing or normalizing the act of cutting and suicide. It was a heartbreaking journey that developed into a story of self discovery and self identification.
