Blake and Willow were everything to each other.  But life took turns they weren’t expecting, and it tore them apart.  They were already spiraling, but then Blake was taken hostage for years and unable to get back to Willow and their daughter Mila.  Once back, Willow makes sure to move with Blake so that Mila never misses another moment with her dad.  I love the fact that while these two are on the outs, they still care a great deal about each other and the well-being of Mila comes first and foremost!

Willow is scared to allow Blake fully back into her life, and as you see as their story unfolds why she has hesitations, and you can understand it. Blake realizes that he messed up before with Willow and is willing to do anything to try and create a better reality this time around.  He keeps showing up and allowing himself to be vulnerable to her in a way he hadn’t been before.  I really enjoy their story because a lot of times with a second chance romance, you have one or both main characters try to move on, but these two never attempted to make that step.  I feel as though if they had, then their reconciliation would haven’t have rang true.  I am loving this spin-off series, and we actually meet another group of guys that are getting their own series.  These stories can be read as standalones, but you are doing yourself a disservice by not reading them all!
