is book 3 in the Surviving series by Ada Frost I was so xcited to read this book I didn t ven read the synopsis because Ada wrote it and it s Will s story So of course I was reading it regardless All I knew was that something happened between him and his long time love Marissa and we would meet his new love interest in Double Betrayal I finally decided to actually read the synopsis and seeing that the heroine was Emily it just made me ven xcited for this book Will has recently moved to the UK after his marriage fell apart He had loved Marissa since he was 14 years old He basically lived his life pleasing her and loving her for 20 years Until the PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition end when she completely shattered him in a way that he neverxpected He has no intentions of

perfect life Izzy is her rock her love and her reason for verything After having her heart broken once she swears that she will never fall in love again But meeting Will Senior changes that It was supposed to be one night so why can t she stop thinking about him Will and Emily are two people whose pasts are both filled with betrayal They both have no intention of falling in love again for fear of getting hurt But neither one of them can stay away from the other And as time goes by their feelings become than just about sex and passion Maybe they aren t as broken as they think Maybe they can love again but in order to do that they both need to let go of the past and open themselves up to the idea of love againI loved this book so much The prologue completely sucked me in I went from being happy for Emily to heart broken Emily is definitely one of favorite heroines She has so much love and is so selfless for reasons that you will understand once you read this book She is sweet caring and just amazing From the first chapter and the moment that Will opened his mouth I was in love He is this big sexy giant with a dirty mouth and mind to go with it What I loved though was that throughout this book you begin to see that the person that he is when with Emily is the real Will I think for so long he wanted to please his x wife that he became someone that he wasn t Emily brought life to Will and brought out this sexy dominating side to him that I loved He was also so sweet caring and very protective of both Emily and Izzy The first sex scene between these two holy crap was it hot I think I may need to invest in a motorcycleDouble Betrayal has a sweet and fun side to it And while one minute you find yourself laughing and smi. Emily’s life had three basic rules love her family fiercely Never xpect forever and most importantly shield her heart from pain At a tender age she had learned love is not forever sex destroys and if you don’t invest your heart it can never be broken She played life safe All it takes though is one moment a defining light in the perpetual darkness to bring life into your heart For Emily it was.
