I haven’t seen Slate in years, but a couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. While I’m visiting my hometown, I’m going to look up Slate Declan. And I plan to break his heart, just as he did mine. I'll remind him of what he has lost, and then I'll prove to him that I’ve moved on.

It should be real easy, right?

Well, let me tell you, Slate Declan is not the same guy that I left behind. And there’s another problem. How do you break someone’s heart when they no longer have one?


Kelly Gendron did one fantastic job at describing a disease that is unfortunately near and dear to almost any family today. Addiction. It is an evil monster. Something that will take you down in the beat of a heart, in the blink of an eye. The way that she describes the feelings, the raw emotions, and the side effects of coming down are so realistic. Needless to say, I loved this book.
Not only was it about addiction, it was about love. How love can conquer all and help you overcome. Not everyone has someone that will love you for all of your faults and undoing's, but Slate does. Slate has his lifelong love Rayna, aka "monkey" by his side to help him kill this monster and put him ten feet under. There is nothing that Rayna will not do for Slate. She sees how drugs have affected him. She sees it in his eyes ... he's not her Slate.
While Slate was knocked out from evilness, she had his brothers take him to the basement and board up the doors. No way out. Rayna is going to get this out of his system once and for all, and bring him back to her. The problem is ... he sees himself as an ugly creature that no one can love. He was involved in a fire and has been scarred for life and he is so afraid that no one can see him as himself, he fears they only see his scars. However, Rayna knows and misses who he once was. She knows that he needs this strong dose of reality to save him.
Can Rayna convince Slate that this is the best thing for him? Will she find that his heart is empty? Or will she be able to make his heart grow and find love again?
If you know someone with a problem with addiction, you will find that this book gives you hope. There is nothing like the feeling of love and hope. Again, Kelly did a fantastic job showing us the evil that addiction can bring, yet the love of someone who knows you and cares for you.
By the way .. as an added bonus, there are some really great hot and heavy sex scenes! :)

Kelly’s motto ~ "Bad boys, give 'em a little time and experience, and they will evolve into misbehaving men!" And what hot-blooded woman doesn’t want a naughty, all grown up bad boy?

Kelly Gendron is the author of the TroubleMaker series, Breaking the Declan Brothers series, and a few other romantic suspense novels.

When she's not writing steamy, blush producing romances, she's out meeting new people while representing a group of reputable nursing facilities. You can find Kelly in a quiet suburb, somewhere between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. If you Google her, she’ll pop up there too. And, please do find her. Kelly loves to hear from her readers, and meeting new people.
