Unprepared, ill-equipped, and with no example to look back on, Ty and Chase embarked on a journey to build a family for Ava and Luc that would far exceed anything they dreamed of for themselves. Two years later, they’ve succeeded beyond their wildest expectations, but there’s still a couple of things missing…and they’re ready to make them happen.
Bad boy biker Trick wouldn’t hesitate to fight for those he loves, but Ty knows it will take more than violence to win this war. Willfully submissive Chase has the utmost faith in his Master, but when he sees Ty struggling with demons from his past, it will be his quiet, unbending support that will see them through. Jumping through the loopholes of family court, they are only one event shy of making it all official and neither are willing to wait another second to check it off the list.
Clearing the path for adoption should reassure them, but it will take their cast of well-meaning friends and the occasional slap upside the head before they realize that the ties that bind them together are forged in a love that can never be taken away.
I adore Ty and Chase. They are wonderful together and you can feel their love for each other and their family without their ever having to say anything. They may be in love and look like they’re already living their happily ever after. But they still have a few lingering things that needed worked out. This was an amazing addition to their story. Ms. G writes wonderful characters and amazing emotion. As you read this story, you feel everything with Ty and Chase as they go through the ups and downs of adoption and marriage. I love her books and can’t wait to read more of this series, and her other works.
Ty’s love for his family grows so much in this story. You can tell he gets more comfortable in his feelings for everyone and finally believes he’s worthy of those emotions. I enjoyed seeing him in his scene with Chase. That’s when you could tell Ty was complete. What happened after was almost a formality, though not a certainty until after it was all over and done with.
Chase was lovely. You could feel his love and devotion coming through the pages as you read. He’s so content with his life, he’s just waiting for the last pieces to be in place. His submission to Ty is absolute. Even if they’re not in a scene, he still follows Ty as the head of household and his guidance. Chase is an amazing friend. He has a way of showing everyone he treasures their friendship without having to say anything.
Ty and Chase are wonderful fathers. They take care of the twins and gave them a loving home. You can feel the familial love pouring out of each page of the story. I loved seeing the four of them together and how they all interact. They’re such a happy family and you can’t help but smile as you read.
This story brought Chase and Ty full circle giving them the most beautiful happily ever after they could hope for. These two are so in love and finally have nothing left over their heads. I hope we get to see them again in other books because that kind of love is so wonderful to see. They will always be welcome in future stories because I will never get enough of them.

“Kong?” He hated to sound doubtful, especially when Luc’s expression was so reminiscent of Ty. “You want to wear Kong to court today?”
“Yes.” Oh, how those Malones could infuse a word with stubbornness. Luc was ready to dig in and it would take a stronger man than he to move him. Chase considered the pros and cons quickly. He had no problem calling Ty in to let the two mules do battle, but was it one worth fighting?
“With your dress pants and suit jacket?” He could compromise here, right? Luc was in the first grade, did the judge really need to see him in a button down and tie?
There was a moment of hesitation, a quick glance between the now-hated suit hanging off the bathroom door and the beloved t-shirt Luc was clutching in his little hands. “Only if I can wear the sneakers too.”
“Sold.” Chase offered his hand to seal the deal and then pointed at his watch. “Fifteen minutes. Don’t forget to brush your teeth.”
With that settled, he went across the hall to find Ava standing in front of the mirror shifting from foot to foot as she admired herself in her new dress. And her princess crown. With Ty grinning a few feet away. Obviously, he wasn’t going to win any battles in there, so he retreated to their bedroom and looked at his own suit hanging off the closet door. It was just clothing and shouldn’t seem daunting, but he’d never actually worn the whole deal before. Well, except for the fitting and even then, he felt like a total fraud. His wardrobe consisted of shorts and flip flops, jeans and tees, and a light jacket for those rare days when they had to bundle up to stave off the Miami winter.
Suits were for adults which, yes, he was one and that’s what the judge needed to see. But would wearing it have any real impact on the man’s decision? Did the cut of his clothing somehow make him a better parent? And why was he even thinking of this nonsense? The suits had been his idea as part of the plan to make the day special. When people got married, they wore a tux—well, not him or Ty, or their friends, but most people—the very least they could do on this momentous occasion was wear suits.
“You caved on Kong, didn’t you?” Ty asked when he came in a few minutes later still smiling.
Chase snorted and quirked an eyebrow. “And you didn’t on the tiara?”
“She does look damned cute in it.” It wasn’t exactly an admission, but they both knew he was a sucker for his little girl in a crown.
Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I’d begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: to be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it’s a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With three series in the works and a full schedule of releases planned for the next two years, it’s been amazing to have made this dream my reality.
I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics, and happily ever after. I’m a lover of strong secondary characters, and series filled with families—biological or chosen. All are themes you’ll find throughout my books.
