Tatum hasn’t had it easy. Her life has been a series of battles, but that hasn’t stopped her from finding and hanging onto what she wants and loves. She’s come a long way from the small farm in Texas she was born on – she’s earned her own way through college on diving scholarships, then moved to begin her career as an elite swim team coach, and is doing her best to survive her life as a widow and single mom.
When Nic Lobo literally steals her away from the life she’s fought to keep together, the most basic of responses is to hate him with every fiber of her being. His quick temper and random absences make that easy. So is the fact that she’s still in love with her dead husband, though she’s also very angry at him for the way in which he left her. But Nic is stubborn and committed, and he has the uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before, not even with the father of her child. He forces Tatum to respond to him the only way he knows how and that terrifies her in so many ways.
Will she fight him to the death, refusing to forgive him for the harm he’s caused, or will he wear her down until she acknowledges the connection their souls won’t allow to be severed.
Love is found in unexpected places. Tatum and Nic meet under unusual circumstances and what follows is a riveting story line that just reels you in as you anticipate what will happen between the two.
Tatum is a mom, who Nic feels needs to be saved. I can’t go into much, I feel like everything is a spoiler!
For Love or Freedom has a riveting storyline, characters who invoke all kinds of emotions. While I felt that they could have been a bit more, it did not detract much from the story. I would recommend this to the reader looking for a very involved, emotional tale.
