✯✯4.5 Stone Filled Stars!!!✯✯

Another must read from Kathy Coopmans and Hilary Storm! This series is def one of my favorite. It's not exactly like the first two books. This one was more about a man finding himself and getting the revenge for the people closest to his heart.

Beau Harris AKA Stone has had everything taken away from him in the blink of an eye. For months he's spent his days/nights in bed or drinking his pain away. The guys have tried giving him his space and time to grieve. His best friend Jayde has tried too. If anybody knows and feels what he's going thru and can relate the most it's her. But, he won't let anyone in.

Emmy Maverick got stuck coming to stay at her brother's compound until further notice. Things haven't been easy in her family. Her and her brother Kaleb are extremely close. But, things with her other brother Ty haven't. ESP when they found out what he was up to in Mexico. When she refuses to stay in the same house and her brother and Jayde he moves her in with Beau. Emmy can see the pain in his eyes and all she wants to do is help him. 

These two have such an up and down thing going on. One minute it's cold Bc Beau's head is messing him up and the next they're hot. And, when I say hot OMG I mean hot.   Beau had been seeing black for so long. But, when he saw Emmy the color started coming back into his life. He was battling it Bc he felt guilty for feeling the way he did for Emmy. But, in order for him to fully be able to move forward he must get revenge on the people who took everything away from him to begin with. Emmy saw his pain and would do anything to take it away. Even putting her own feelings aside to help him.

I finished this book in three sittings. It was that good. This is the 3rd book of this incredible series and I still don't know which author wrote what. This book was totally about a second chance at life, happiness and romance. My heart broke for both of them. Emmy for her family issues she had to deal with. Beau for his loss. I'm not spoiling what/who he lost ;) 

I absolutely  loved this story. It had all the guys from the first 2 books. We got to know a few of them a little more then before. There was definitely a few huge surprises that threw me for a huge shock. I do feel the ending was rushed. I was kinda upset about that. I wouldn't change the story or the outcome. Just feel it was a little rushed. I'm dying for the next story from this incredible series.

“You going to stand there all day or get this shit done and over with, bitch?”  He stands with his arms spread open as if he’s waiting for me to drive the first punch.  That’s exactly what I do.  I nail him with a right hook that lands on the side of his temple. He staggers, but before I have time to swing again, he plows into me with a kick to my stomach, followed by a punch that leads to a crunching noise from my nose.  Blood spurts down my face, and pain ricochets from one side of my head to the other.  His arms go up like he’s challenging me to come at him again.

“Come on, Harris, you need this. I can take it, you pussy.  Let’s go.”  And I explode with that phrase.  I grab him by the back of the neck, rolling us to the floor. Fists start flying fast and furious as if we’re fighting for our lives.  An explosive punch to his ribs sets him off exactly how I want him.  He attacks with the force I need.  Brutal punches to my face bring pain to the surface before a sweep of my leg has me dropping back down to the floor.  I welcome the pain.  I need the pain.  It eggs me on and revitalizes me in a way I crave.
My next move is both spontaneous and unpredictable even to myself.  I move swiftly and smoothly, snapping up off the floor.  A swift kick to his jaw before I tumble backwards leaves him stunned and holding his face.
This is a fight with no rules, no winner, where neither one of us is looking to be the undisclosed master.  It’s a language all of its own.  This is a lesson I need and one he’s been dying to give.  Only, I don’t plan to make it easy on him.
I know I’m hiding behind a mask of despair, and knowing this is when I let my guard down, when I decide to surrender and allow the man who has been doing his job as a friend to try and bring me back to the man I once was.  I allow him to get one last destructive punch in.  This is the one I need the most.  The one that clearly knocks me on my goddamn ass until I’m lying there breathing heavily.
My mind starts to tell me it’s time to move on.  My chest explodes inside, and I finally feel the shards of reality that are heating up the blood pumping through my veins.  It’s time to realize she isn’t coming back to me.  It’s time for me to take the lesson of life that has pulled me under this rough, intense current of self-destruction.  It’s his punch to the side of my head that fucking makes me feel I’m alive.  Here’s the best part though, I don’t care if I’m alive.  I care about nothing.  This isn’t living, and yet it’s all I’ve got.
