Companion to "Unbreakable" -- Landon's story
**This book is a Contemporary Romance and contains mature subject matter.It is not intended for those under 17 years of age.**
I’ve found it’s easier to share my body but not my soul. I need no one, yet I crave her.
Self-assured and independent, she doesn’t need me—but she wants me, and undeniably I want her too. At war with myself as I battle the secrets of my past, I don’t know if I can allow her to see the darkest parts of me, the parts I’ve left untouched—undone.
As she chips away at the walls I’ve built for years, I fear those secrets will hold me hostage from love—forever.
Landon Landon Landon. I fell in love with him at the end of Unbreakable. I thought I knew him but I was wrong. He is complicated. Not just your average asshole for asshole sake. He has demons that he works very hard to keep at bay. Demons that torment him in his dreams and interfere with his relationships… or his non-relationships as it were. He knows himself and he knows his limits and he never ever crosses them. Then he meets Reagan. Reagan is not his run of the mill hook up. No she wants more… she demands more. If it’s friendship or one-night stand then she chooses friendship much to Landon’s chagrin. So for the first time since Jessica walked out of his life he actually gets to know a woman. He falls in like with her almost instantly and she slowly lets him know all of her secrets. Can he do the same for her? Can he open up those old wounds and bleed for her to see? He has gotten so good and keeping it all tied down tight protecting himself and protecting everyone else around him that letting it loose could be dangerous to them all.
Wow… this book pummeled me. Then it picked me up off the mat and sucker punched me again… and again… and again. Just when you think you have gathered your wits and regained your breath, another kick in the gut. ***I “may” have been furiously messaging the author in the middle of the night***. Landon is an alpha male and one sexy beast of a man. He is protective and demanding and a little bit kinky and we like it. We like it A LOT. Poor Reagan never really stood a chance with the whole “we can just be friends” nonsense. I am surprised she was able to hold out as long as she did. I wanted to jump into my kindle and slap her silly. Then I want to jump in and fist-bump her. Then I want to jump in and hold her tight. This story was oh so agonizing and oh so sweet at the same time. It will break you. It will thrill you. It will heal you. Just be prepared to ignore everyone and everything until Landon’s had his wicked way with you.
*Sigh* now we patiently, or NOT so patiently wait for Lindsay and Matt’s story ;)
“You know we all have secrets, right?” She turns to face me. “we all have scars; some scars can be seen and others cannot. Every scar has a story and every story needs to be told. When you’re ready, I’ll be here to listen to your story”
“What are you doing up?” I reach out and tuck a strand of her long hair behind her ear.
“I thought you left,” she whispers. I don’t know how to respond to her, because part of me
did want to leave—to flee where I don’t have to deal with these unknown feelings. Feelings that
leave me scared to death. So instead of saying anything, I pull her into a hug. I love that she’s so
tall. Her head fits right into the crook of my neck.
“You need to sleep,” I say quietly. “You have to be at work in a few hours. Go rest; I’ll be
here when you wake up—I promise.”
She pulls away and looks at me skeptically, but nods her head and shuffles down the hallway
toward her bedroom. Stopping just outside her door, she looks back over her shoulder at me, then
turns around slowly, walking back to me. Without a word, she weaves her fingers through mine
and walks us back to her bedroom. I don’t hesitate. In fact, I long for her touch and grip her hand
“Just lie with me,” she whispers, pressing her finger to my lips so I can’t argue or refuse.
Pulling me toward the large bed, she pulls the covers back and slides in, moving to the center. I
hesitate as I watch her, wondering if it will ever be possible to “just lie with” her and not touch
her. Her long body stretches from the pillows to the end of the bed, and her fair skin is begging
me to touch it.
Sliding in next to her, she pulls me to her. Wrapping her arm across my waist, she rests her
head on my shoulder. She settles in as if she’s done it a thousand times—and it feels natural,
“Thank you, Landon,” she mumbles sleepily.
“For what?” I ask, confused.
“Trying. Thank you for trying.”
