Preston Life has hit me below the belt, and I have lost those I hold most dear. On my sister's deathbed, she made me swear I'd care for her baby girl as if she was my own. After six years of loving her like my daughter, we live a quiet and peaceful life. In the midst of more loss, I meet this couple, and unbeknownst to me, they are who I need to feel whole again. Hardy Dakota is my life, my wife, and my partner. We fit together like two jagged edges, making the perfect combination. Our unconventional life falls under scrutiny as the heir of a large family conglomerate, choosing to live quietly behind closed doors with our kinks. But what happens when another closes the gap and makes us even more complete. Do I walk away from my responsibilities as the perfect son my parents desperately want from me? Dakota I'm a free spirit, going where the wind takes me. So far, it's been simple in the life I live with Hardy. Until a trip to a new resort has us questioning if we can love another as deeply as we love each other. I know the answer the second I set my eyes on the broody bartender with a ton of baggage. How do we convince the man he's worth all the love in the world when everything he's already lost and more may be taken from him?

This book is quite an adventure. How much crap can one person take??
Poor Preston has lost just about everything and everyone he’s ever cared for. He only has his niece to keep him going.

Dakota and Hardy are two people who are complete with each other or so they thought. Until they meet Preston and his precocious little niece who needs healing Dakota and Hardy might just be able to provide.  They may also get a little healing in return.

This book has the bones to be great. If you can get past awkward scene changes and dialogue then this book should be no problem.
The characters were okay, I didn’t understand the MFC very much so I didn’t connect with her, but Hardy was an amazing character. I love that he was still an asshole until the very end. Love changed him, but not to the outside world.

You quickly learn to love blue as well.

The nicknames were distracting sometimes and they switched back and forth often, I think given more time to get to know the characters it wouldn’t have been that disorienting but it was a go from the start.
