This is the second in the series, and should be read in order. Prince Magnus is a warrior, the best and although he was also sent to Earth he knows he will not find he’s mate and he doesn’t deserve to even if he does. Being a soldier, he has done some things that are unforgivable and feels that no mate should be saddled with someone as unwanted or as undesirable as himself. Archer, Archie, is a simple man. At a young age he came out to his father and that man beat him it an inch of his life. That beating left Archie, with brain damage with makes him learn a little slower, forget things but also makes him very sensitive to himself and the world around him. A big man by nature and carpenter by trade he is a big man, so has found men like the size but that’s all, no one wants to bother with slow, dumb, jock. This has lead him to turn into himself and his friends for company and stay away from intimate relationships. Until he meets Magnus, One look and he knows that Magnus is his. Know he just has to convince the name he is worthily or is he convincing himself? I think I’m still crying this book should be sold with virtual tissues. Archie is an amazing character. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a MC that has affected me that way. If I could find his hatful father, I would also… well anyway. And Magnus such guilt, such pain, the way these two heal each other and the people around them. The way these two just complement each other, and the way that everyone around Archie just falls under his spell. I know I sure did. It’s a great second in what appears is going to be a magical series. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review by Crystals Many Reviews
****WARNING**** BE SURE TO HAVE LOTS OF TISSUES WHILE READING THIS BOOK! Archie. Sweet amazing Archie. If I had to say one reason, and only one reason to read this book, I would say that it has to be because of Archie. That man is everything that a person hopes for in a partner, and in a friend. This book was so packed with emotion, and love that I just couldn’t get enough of it. This book has become one of my favorite books that I have read so far this year, and it will take a lot to top this book because of the emotions that Ms. Samuels was able to pack into the story, and the love as well, it was just great. I did like that we were still able to catch up with Merek and Vance as well in this book. Their story didn’t overtake the story between Archie and Magnus by any means, but it was nice to find out what they were up too. Overall, this is another great book in this series and I just can’t wait to start reading book 3! Reviewed by Crystal Marie for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy provided for review*
Great second book to the series. I absolutely loved Archie! What a sweet, gentle man who has a heart of gold. Magnus is a strong character and a perfect mate for him. This was a beautiful story. Archie's gift to see through the glamour of the world of Sanzel makes him the perfect person to keep a secret that breaks his heart and calls every need within him to protect Magnus. I have to admit, this one made me cry. The tenderness between the men and the children they have together is wonderful. I recommend this story and the series. Very enjoyable.
