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.
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.”
Bleeding Love is the second book in Harper Sloan’s Hope Town series (this is a spin-off of the Corps Security series. If you haven’t read it, you should-it’s totally hot). Bleeding Love can be read as a stand-alone or as part of the Hope Town series. This book focuses on Liam “Lee” Beckett (son of John “Becks” and Dee Beckett from CS). Lee has had his eye on Megan. He knows that she is working through the sorrow and pain of losing her husband but he is a patient man. (Megan was briefly introduced in Unexpected Fate as a friend of Dani’s). After getting a bit tipsy at Cohen and Dani’s wedding, Lee makes his move. Megan and Lee share one hot night but their relationship of lack thereof, goes back to the way it was before. Megan avoiding Lee at all cost. Lee finally decides to take matters into his own hands and helps Megan climb out of the depressive hole she has been in.
I absolutely loved Bleeding Heart. I thought it was a little different that from Harper’s previous books because it really focused on Lee and Megan’s relationship, how they get to where they are at the end of the book, as well as them just falling in love. Bleeding Love had an internal conflict where previous books seemed to have had external conflicts. Don’t get me wrong, it was still a wonderful, wonderful book and story, just a little different. The journey Megan takes to heal through Harper’s words was moving and emotional. I teared-up more than one time while reading this book. Bleeding Love was beautifully written. Harper Sloan keeps delivering quality books with touching stories and she certainly did not disappointment with her latest book.
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.
