Synopsis

Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III and Francesca Leandra Solomon were meant to be. They were so in love that everybody prayed for what they had.

Everything was glorious. They would get married, have children and live a perfect life. She would be a doctor in the emergency room once she finished her doctorate, and he would be a badass Navy SEAL and save people for a living.

But then Luca is deployed across the world, and per military regulations, Frankie isn’t allowed to follow.

They’ve overcome a lot in their short relationship, and they can overcome this, too. Two years was a piece of cake. She’d finish her schooling and wait for him. And when he finally returned home, they would marry.

But two months into Luca’s deployment, the unthinkable happens, and Frankie is left alone and heartbroken, knowing that she’ll have to face the rest of life without Luca at her side.

***

Fast forward two years, and Frankie is exactly where her fiancé’s father left her, in a pit of despair that she has no hope of ever finding her way out of.

She lives life one second at a time, depressed and alone, hoping tomorrow won’t hurt like today.

She finds a job, moves, and hopes that the nightmares won’t swallow her whole.

But just as she thinks that she’s getting better, one of her nightmares walks through the doors of her ER, and that nightmare has a name.

Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III. In the flesh.

Also healthy and whole, and definitely no longer missing.

Sadly, it only takes her a half a second to realize that the man that left her isn’t the same man that returned.

The old one wanted her. The new one? Well, he’s definitely not interested anymore.

My thoughts 💭

This was an interesting read. It kept my attention and was sweet! Luca and Frankie were made for each other and even amnesia couldn’t keep them apart.

Jeremy
I had everything once. A military career I loved, a family, a future.
I threw it all away.
Now I live my life alone, and every day make amends for what I did by accepting what I can never have again. Brotherhood, purpose, love… it’s not in the cards for me and that’s no one’s fault but mine.
Then she walks in with her wild hair and her gorgeous spirit.
She’s been through hell and I should be the last person she runs to.
So why do I keep doing all I can to keep her close?
Jordyn
I used to be loud, outgoing, friendly. I had friends and plans, I had the life I thought I wanted.
When they took everything from me, it was all I could do to just try and survive. Friendship, relationships, love… I couldn’t even consider the possibility when I didn’t know where my next meal would come from.
I should be running in the opposite direction from the sexy bartender with the haunted eyes and devastating grin.
I shouldn’t be agreeing to work for him. I definitely shouldn’t be agreeing to live with him.
He says he’ll keep me safe.
If only I knew if he meant from himself.
