At 18, Liam Fox-Williams fell in love with someone he shouldn’t. When the relationship ran its course, he took his broken heart away and abandoned his other passion. A few years later, a quick trip back home brought him face to face with the pain he was still struggling to heal.
Cari Pritchard was a young art teacher who couldn’t resist being involved with her student. But she pushed him away to protect him and her secret. Now that he’s back, she wanted to come clean and hope he would accept all that she had to offer.
I want to be the one who stands by her side with her hand in mine during the tough times, who holds her close and soothes her fears during the dark times and who laughs, celebrates and dances with her during the best of times.
Liam was a sweetheart beta hero. He had a big heart and a gentle soul, always putting other first.
He spends so much time giving his all to everyone else that I want to give my all to him.
Cari was an admirable character with how she tackled her life. It was not easy being in her situation but she handled it with grace.
“Remembering is the problem, it would hurt less to forget.”
This book was not at all what I expected. I thought it would be angsty but it turned out to be a sweet easy read. Their relationship progressed smoothly with minimal obstacle. There was one aspect that connected them together, and I love that I get to learn more about it from their relationship.
Three is a story of a couple finding strength in each other in nurturing their love. It would appeal to readers looking for a low conflict second chance romance.
