Sometimes what you find isn’t what you were searching for
Beau Petty has been searching his whole life. Searching for a place that fills all the empty spaces in him. Searching for a way to tame the restlessness. Searching for answers to the secret he’s never stopped trying to solve. What he wasn’t searching for was a woman to claim all of him, but when Cora Silvera walks back into his life, he’s ready to search out all the ways he can make her his.
Cora has spent her life as the family nurturer, taking care of others. But now she’s ready to pass that job on to someone else. It’s time to make some changes and live for herself. It’s in that moment that her former teenage crush reappears and the draw and the heat of their instant connection is like nothing either of them has experienced. He craves being around her. She accepts him, dark corners and all.
Beau thinks Cora’s had enough drama in her life. He wants to protect her from the secrets of his past, even if it means holding back the last pieces of himself. But Cora is no pushover and she means to claim all those pieces.

Whiskey Sharp: Torn by Lauren Dane
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I have been a super fan of Lauren Dane ever since I read the Brown Sibling series. There is always so much depth to not only the characters, but the stories themselves as well.
The story of Beau and Cara isn’t exactly deep. Well, it could have been, but the author chose not to take that route. For me, the story needed it. There’s a lot of history to Cara and Beau that just seemed to just hang there … and I didn’t even realize it until I was almost finished with the book. It was almost as if it was too easy … that’s not always a bad thing. I love easy like Sunday morning reads, but I just can’t help but think that Beau and Cara deserved more. I dunno, I was just left wanting …..
The part of this story that was really well done was Beau and Cara themselves, together. It’s a second chance to get it right story and they both just flowed right into the present with ease. They were really good for each other. Like I said, Beau’s individual history with his past and Cara’s with her mother was what left me unsatisfied about the story.

She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.
