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...

Thoughts:
Without reading the first book, it was a bit confusing, but I did catch on.  I just started reading the first book, so it will be interesting to see if the second book makes complete sense.

The second book leaves off on Carrie and Finn’s story.  They really are such a sweet, amazing couple and I was hoping things would get a little easier for them, but of course, life is messy, love is challenging and no matter how strong the bond two people share, there are always those outside influences that cause havoc.

It seemed like there was so much against them, from Carrie's father to Finn's unknown future and deployment as a Marine, but I'm glad they stood together and faced things as a couple. Yes, the stress of their lives showed its ugly face from time to time and their insecurities made them say things they normally wouldn't, but they came out in the end still very much in love.

You could tell something bad was going to happen, it was just the matter of determining when and where it was going to happen.  When the time came I was a bundle of mixed emotions. I was so happy that Carrie finally stood up to her father, but at the same time I was devastated and so worried about Finn.

I found this book exciting and loved the romance.  It takes a lot to stand up for what you believe in.
