When there’s no peace after war…
When there’s no solace after death…
When there’s only pain and suffering…
Anxiety and loss…
All you can hope to find is something more…
Something that makes you whole and complete
Something that puts you
On Higher Ground
We catch up with the boys months after we left them in On Solid Ground. They are getting settled into their new life with Violet and well, it seems that things are coming to a halt. Nightmares return, feet are cold and pasts come back to them when they least expect it. Dax and Beck seem to question a lot of what is going on in their lives and are always reassuring one another that things are good.
“…if you were someone different, if you life had gone down a different path, then maybe I wouldn’t have stumbled into your tattoo shop. And you wouldn’t have saved me when I needed you the most.” ~Dax~
“The moment I saw you for you were, flaws and all, I belonged to you. It may have been in ways I hadn’t realized, but I did.” ~Beck~
I must say, one of my favorite things about this book was Violet, this little girl is sassy and sweet. It’s really no wonder why she has “Dad” and “Daddy” wrapped around each one of her little fingers. Their situation isn’t conventional with how they all came together but this story shows how they are all meant to be a family. We see them at their worst and at their best.
“It doesn’t matter where I am – or where I’m going or where I’ve been. All that matters is right here in my arms.” ~Dax~
And that says it all, they are meant to be on this path, wherever it may take them :)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.
