"Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain" ~ Charlie Chaplin
Two Wallflowers fell in love, now One Heart Remains. Will love score a trifecta for the nutty band of friends?
Poppy Gentry is broken. A ghost of who she should be. She hides behind her wit; avoiding stress by living inside her head. However, one man won't let her hide. With the unconditional support of her friends, Sienna Miller and Cali Armstrong, can Poppy find the courage to let love in and allow it to heal her fractured soul?
Nate Jacobs learned a hard truth when he was a child: sometimes the monsters in the dark are the very people who should protect you with their lives. Battling his own demons, Nate vows to slay Poppy's dragons first, but who will slay his?
Will Poppy succumb to the muscle-bound Neanderthal or stand her ground? Will Nate give her a happily ever after like any proper Southern gentleman should?
Book #3 in the Wallflower Series. Not a Standalone. Must be read in order.
Rated mature for sexual content and language.
Now used to the hi-jinx that the “wallflowers” get up to and just off of a huge reveal, One Heart Remains held the promise of more action, adventure and new, true love for our final girl, Poppy. But Poppy’s guarded and facing down a life long demon.
There’s lots of layers to the story, Poppy’s lineage, her unexpected connection to Sienna, and an experience from her childhood that left her fundamentally afraid of intimacy. Nate, like the other alpha’s in Krieg, Georgia, has his own reasons for resisting Poppy, but he’s defenseless to the pull he feels toward her. Will Nate be the right man for her, despite her distrust and his hang ups? Will the Wallflowers be able to stay out of trouble long enough to give them the chance? I think we know the answer to that.
I loved being in Poppy’s head as she list out the possible tropes or her story of romance : ” I also added a comment in the side notes that stated character arc would be adjusted as new developments came in.” Her imagination is splendid and not to far off from how things go down. Yes, there’s a few near misses and the ladies ignore the pleas of their men and embark on a few ill timed investigations ( err, vacations).
One Hearts Remains was a great conclusion to the series and left us with taste of what CP Smith intends to share next. She’s among the best writers of modern alpha men so I for one am looking forward to her next book in the spring of 2019.
