Well, that's it- it has been accomplished. I now have a new AR favorite, and his name is Ren Hendricks. Oh my lord, this boy stole my heart!!! I didn't even care that he was a teenager- I fell in love with him from the very beginning. Or maybe I just fell in love with the way he loved his Lily. Either way- he melted me.
This sweet, strong yet gentle, young man found himself pulled to Lily at first sight, like so many of Alex's men are. But, it was more than that- the urge to protect her from everyone else- given that she had been thrust into a new school full of unknowns, was so strong that he knew she was the one. How many young men know they have found their soul's mate at age eighteen? Not many. But Ren knew. And he made sure that nothing stopped him from making Lily, and everyone around them, knew it.
As for Lily, my heart literally broke for her. The one other man that was to protect her from the world, ended up being the one who hurt her the most. Her father was a horrible excuse for a parent, and one of the most selfish men that I think AR has ever written. So, I was thrilled to see him get his just desserts from Ren when the time came. I actually squealed with delight- and found myself thinking that he deserved even more.
This is one book that I really wish had been so much longer, because I am pretty certain that I could've read about these two forever. I just loved them that much. To see them grow together, and then later in life, having made such a beautiful future- it was freaking amazing. Kudos ladies- you've outdone yourselves with this one!!!
