Author: Jen McLaughlin
Publisher: Self-Published
Number of Pages: 216

"Desperate to keep him...
I've finally gotten everything I ever wanted: love, freedom, happiness, and, most importantly, Finn. Our love is everything I expected it to be and more. We've finally found each other, but the world seems determined to tear us apart. We thought my father was the only obstacle between us, but now it's the military. With Finn’s departure looming, we’re squeezing in every moment together before we run out of time.
Trying to make every moment count…
Being Carrie’s bodyguard was one thing. Being her boyfriend is another. Every day she’s mine is a day the sun shines in my life. Yet our time together is running out. Her father will never think a tattooed Marine will be good enough, so I’ll do whatever it takes to be worthy of her love. But the road will take me away from the girl who makes me feel alive--the girl I can't live without.
Time only gets us so far..."

Even better than first book, Jen McLaughlin is definitely a book that just makes you want to cry when it ends.

This series has become so amazing and it has definitely become one of my go to reads when I just need something random to read that I've already read. The characters have touched my heart and I know I'm itching to get my hands on the next book.
"She really liked me just like I was, and that fucking amazed me."
Carrie has become someone that I wish were read and that I could be best friends with. She is just so...pure. She doesn't judge people on what they look like, what their status is or anything like that because she knows how that feels. She loves and cares for people based on their heart and how they treat others and not just her. She's very saint like in my eyes and that has to be the one thing I love most about this character. She doesn't care about wealth but she just wants to live happily ever after with the man she loves.
“I don’t think you need to be any guy but you. I love you the way you are—tattoos and all.”
Finn is the type of guy that your mother probably won't approve of (I know my mother wouldn't)...with the tattoos, drives a motorcycle etc, but he's exactly the type of guy that us girls would fall for (I've fallen hard already for Finn). Throughout this book he's become this sweet guy who, at times, you can't even picture with tattoos or anything like that. He's just become that boy that every girl dreams of falling in love with and personality wise he is that guy. Judging by looks, your mother might glare at you. 
"This was a pattern in my life. The second things started to look up for me, shit always blew up in my face."
The romance in this series is hazardous. I absolutely adore it! Carrie and Finn just connect and have just amazing chemistry, it actually makes me depressed. (Jen, what are you doing to me?!) In the first book it was all about the forbidden love and it still is in this book but not as much, at this point in their life it's more about trying to find a way to put all the loose ends together..if you understand that.

My favorite part of this book has to be all the quotes. The quotes that I could pull out of this book are just mind blowing. Jen McLaughlin is ridiculously skilled at writing and you can tell by these quotes. I could probably pull out pages and pages of sentences that I fell in love with in this book. Here are two more that I loved,
"Fuck, I love you. So damn much it scares she shit out of me. I've never been scared of anything before. Guns. Surfing. War. But now I have the biggest fear of all--losing you."

“I don’t care about his fucking campaign! I care about you. About us.”
This series has become a drug for me, I keep on reading it over and over again. Ugh! I really can't wait for the third book for this series, and I know I will be waiting very impatiently! 

This series is a must read and you should go one click this right now if you are smart and/or need a good book to read. I have fallen hard for this series and I never want to go back.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!! (What else would I give it?)
