When I was nineteen years old, I was faced with a choice that changed my life.
Keep the safety of what I already knew or risk losing everything with the young, hotheaded soldier who stole my heart.
I chose the wrong man, and for seventeen years, I paid in tears, blood, and shattered dreams for that decision.
Now, there’s a man in my house, holding a gun to my head on the order of my ex-husband—given from his prison cell.
That hotheaded soldier I was too afraid to choose? He’s now a six-foot-three wall of muscle who works at the country’s most premier bodyguard agency. I’ve always wanted him, but now, I’ve never needed him more.
It’s the call I’m terrified to make.
I’m sure he still hates me… Even though I’ve never stopped loving him.
I was so happy when this landed on my kindle and I really enjoyed the story. It’s a sort of second chance romance between Mira and Jeremy (Lark).
I like a story where we get to see the past as well as the present I always feel like it gives the reader a better understanding of the characters.
The history between the characters was full of angst which set the story up nicely when they meet again. Mira made mistakes in her past and those decisions had a huge impact on Lark’s life which understandably have shaped him into a man she no longer recognises.
A story full of emotion with drama and twists that kept me engaged from start to finish.

Never know what Ms. Martinez has up her sleeve. Thrive was a shock to my system. I am a big cranky pants when it comes to the idea of cheating. So it made my insides squirmy to read that that might be where this book was going...Don't Stop Reading!!!!
I may not condone the behavior but this story needs to be read. As a big fan of the Guardian boys, it is imperative to know all, see all, and be apart of it all.
Thrive was just a piece of the puzzle that surrounds these awesome characters. And as expected, Ms. Martinez has left me on the hook waiting for the next book (even though Thrive isn't yet live...).
If you like piña coladas and big studly alpha males...
If you like tension, lust, and second chances...
If you like daring saves and getting caught in the...(What if I wanted to say drive by instead of rain...? You sang rain, I know you did.)
Thrive will keep you entertained and thirsty for more. Oh and keep your eyes open for old friends visiting. You never know who will come by.

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.
Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.
She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
