Six years ago, Jasper Des Moines traded in the only life he knew. In order to keep a promise and a secret, he walked from the only man he’d ever loved.

Now, he has a career in need of constant defending, a best friend who knows nothing about his past, and a husband he should love. He has the life he believes he deserves.

Until one day, the unfinished business he’d left behind catches up with him, and he’s faced with the one man he’d never been able to resist or forget.

Cole Kincaid arrives in New York City with ulterior motives, but good intentions. He simply wants a place in Jasper’s world again. And if Jasper is happy, then so is he. But as the truth of Jasper’s new life unfolds, the role Cole wants to play in it begins to shift.

He soon reminds himself that Jasper belongs to him, and no promises made before God to a man who isn’t him will ever change that.

Cole’s presence threatens the carefully constructed life of penance Jasper has created. And while Jasper is focused on maintaining the existence he’d rightfully earned, Cole tempts him with the existence he actually wants.

Tragedy might have torn them apart, but lies will bring them together again.

First of all, this book deals with infidelity, if that’s not your cup of tea, this is definitely not the book for you.

To be honest, I don’t usually read books with this theme, but there was something about the blurb that drew me in and for the most part, I found it more enjoyable than I imagined. Part of this might have a lot to do with Cole and Jasper and the scorching chemistry between them and part of it might have been that Daniel, Jasper’s husband, wasn’t exactly an upstanding guy (not that that excuses the cheating, it just made it less difficult for me to care in this case, LOL.)

The thing is there was no way it wasn’t happening, from the moment Cole and Jasper saw each other again, it was inevitable. Their connection, their love, the raw intensity, and their possessiveness for each other, hadn’t stopped in 6 years, instead, it got ramped up in the time they didn’t see each other and it was just a matter of when they would act on it, no matter the consequences.

Overall, this was a captivating angsty, passionate, steamy second-chance romance that I found difficult to put down. Was it perfect? No, but it was enjoyable enough that I have no trouble recommending it.

Bad Wrong Things” was one of my favorite reads last year, so when I heard that CP Harris was going to release a new book early this year I was very excited. Reading the blurb only made it better and the cheating trope (not between the MCs, as that’s a deal breaker for me and a sure way to make me stay away from a story) was one more thing to look forward to.
When the ARC landed in my library I was giddy and had that feeling where you want to read a book but at the same time, you don’t want the story to end.
Sometimes, when you’re so umped up for a story the end result doesn’t deliver and the disappointment is worse than if it was just another book. This time though the story was every bit as exciting as I expected it to be. The only reason I’m giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is Daniel’s character in the last few chapters.
I liked the narration and the way the story was told, the pace of it, and how the past got revealed little by little throughout the book. The chapters from Daniel’s perspective were a surprise and I was a little disappointed about them when I came upon the first one, but almost immediately I realized they were very short and took place in the past. They were just quick, short scenes from Daniel’s past that eventually reveal something important for the present.
Cole and Jasper had a mountain of guilt to overcome and a lot of issues from their past that they needed to solve. I don’t think there was anyone more fitted for either of them other than the other. Their past was significant and spanned the majority of their lives, even before they understood what their feelings were.
They’re possessive and jealous characters, but only when it comes to each other. They cross many lines to be together and have a connection, a chemistry, so strong that being apart and happy isn’t even a possibility. That kind of relationship has the danger of turning very bad for the people involved, but in this case, it worked well for them. They’re clearly codependent and they know it but don’t have any desire to do anything to change that.
The story starts at a point where they haven’t seen or talked to each other for many years but their connection hasn’t changed despite the distance. Their relationship isn’t a new one: they had been a couple for years, lived in the same house for even more time and they knew each other like no one else.
There’s also a collection of extra scenes available that add some more backstory. They’re events from their past that had been mentioned in passing in the book but this time the scene is expanded. They’re in chronological order, starting with the day they met and ending with the day that led to their separation. I liked that they weren’t part of the main book but were made into a novella of bonus material, even if I skipped some parts. The scenes helped to get a deeper understanding of Cole and Jasper but, at the same time, they weren’t essential to the story as the events have already been mentioned, so I think that this was the perfect solution.
Even though I have no idea who any of the next books will be about, I’m looking forward to all of them because of the general trope (pretty clear from the series title—though as I’ve already said, I hope it’ll never be between the MCs) and the author, which has quickly become a favorite of mine.
