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.
Yet again, I get sucked into the crazy and chaotic world that Aly Martinez creates for us. From start to finish, I was enthralled with Thrive and couldn’t get enough of it. It’s full of angst, some crazy scenarios, good laughs and a beautiful yet chaotic second chance romance.
Jeremy Lark loved Mira York the moment he met her. Problem was, he was his best friend’s girlfriend. Things spiral and in the end, he looses the love of his life. Or so he thought until seventeen years later, she walks back into his life. She leads him on crazy ride but he’s not letting her go a second time and he gives it right back to her. That much is for sure.
“It was reckless and irresponsible. Two words that might as well have been the definition of Jeremy Lark.”
Welp, this surely isn’t your normal sweet second chance romance. Danger towards Mira brings her back into Lark’s life and we get to watch the craziness that unfolds. First and foremost, Lark’s priority is Mira’s safety but watching these two fight and bicker their way back into each other’s hearts was really fun. I thought the storyline was angsty when it needed to be but had the right comedic timing as well.
I really enjoyed the secondary characters as well. Of course, Thrive can be read as a standalone but it was good to get a bit more of Jude and Rhion and of course more of my love, Johnson. I’m going to be talking about him until hopefully I get my hands on his own book.
Thrive is enthralling, chaotic, and dynamic. You don’t want to miss out on this epic second chance romance. Lark and Mira will drive you crazy and melt your heart.
