Fragile Bonds Blog Banner
"Without trust, we have nothing."
These are the words which have haunted Melanie Erickson for six years. When she walked out of the house Xavier Ross bought as their forever home, she thought she was closing that door permanently, but fate had other plans.
Xavier Ross tried to keep everyone at a distance until Melanie came into his life. The more he tried to fight his feelings for her, the more he fell in love. One rash decision fractured the trust that was essential to their relationship.
Six years later, she is the last person he expects to see walk through his front door. Will Xavier and Mel be able to learn to trust one another again so they can fulfill a dying woman’s wish?

Daphnie's  4 Star Review

"I think everyone has that one person in their lives that can affect them, even if it's been twenty years and they separated in bad terms, and Xavier is mine."

After reading about the blurb of this book, I had to read more about it. I knew it was one of those books you couldn't pass up. I am a fan of Sloan Johnson and loved her Isthumus Alliiance series and I just new I would love this second chance at love story.

Melaine is face with working in the home she once lived in with her first love caring for his dying wife. She has put the last six years behind her, and devoted her time to her job and patients. Mel is a  nurse and devotes her time to terminal-ill. Who new years later they would meet again, and it would be Mel taking care of Xavier dying wife Alyssa.

I am not sure how Melanie was able to work in that home, put her pride behind her and do her job. I know she want to hate Alyssa, but by they end you fall in love with her. She's funny and she just trying to hold it all together for her son and her husband.

"I just want them to feel like everything is normal" ...."I'm  so fucking sick of them suffering because of this shit"

And Xavier with two woman who at one point in his life he loved. He was a different man when he was in love with Mel since then he has grown he no longer practices BDSM. Now he is a father and he is in love with his wife and son. They are his priority. They son Jacob had me in tears, him and blaze pulled at my heart.

"There was a time when Melanie was the most important person in my life. She was my world. And then everything we shared crumbled. Deep in my heart, I know that there will always be a place where Melanie resides, but I can't allow that to come to the surface because Alyssa and Jacob are my life now. The bond that will never be severed with Melanie has to remain a secret because I will never do anything that will hurt them."

I enjoyed this book and I felt connected to all the characters. There were was no big surprise and everything was pretty predicable. Which was not a bad thing, I would have like a bit of a surprise. This was an emotional, gut wrenching, Sloan Johnson get you all way up to the top of the roller coaster and when the tears are flowing that's when you coming crashing down.
