You met Audrey Decker through Nate and Libby’s story in For Nicky, Torey Hope book 1. This is Audrey’s story. It is highly suggested that you read For Nicky before reading Because of Beckett so that you can be emotionally vested in Audrey’s story.
Audrey Decker is a mean girl, a bitch, a bully. She has no plans to stop treating people badly and she’s definitely not going to stop using sex as power. But when she ends up in therapy against her wishes, an ugly and painful repressed past is uncovered and Audrey’s world is tipped on its axis. Everything she thought she knew, everything she thought she was, is all changing.
Jeremiah Jordan returns from serving two years overseas with a detached and hardened heart. When his world is rocked with unexpected news and difficult challenges, Jeremiah faces them head on. He’s comfortable with where he is right now; he has his parents close by and his son is his world. He definitely doesn’t have time for the hassle that has always accompanied dating in the past. He doesn’t have it in him to put effort into forming relationships that may just hurt him or his son again.
A chance encounter, second chances, and a little boy who believes in learning from mistakes is all it takes to bring Audrey and Jeremiah together. However, deserving a second chance and taking that second chance are two very different things. Learning from mistakes and letting go of the past may be easier said than done. Can Audrey and Jeremiah push through the pasts that are haunting both of them or will their romance wither and die under the weight of it all?
Because of Beckett is a story of love, forgiveness, and second chances.
**Because of Beckett is recommended only for ages 18+ due to harsh language, adult situations, and mature themes. Certain pivotal points of Audrey’s history may trigger unpleasant memories for some readers.**
This was a redemption story of sorts, learning to no Because of Bennett was another great book by A.D. Ellis. The best part of this book was Mr. Beckett. Talking about a charming little fella, he was so sweet and wise beyond his years. He charmed his way into my heart and I think he will take up permanent residentsacy right along Nicky. I was so glad Nicky had a staring role in this story as well. His sweet loving nature captured my heart in the first book and didn't let it go in this one either.
This was a redemption story of sorts, learning to not only love yourself but how to let go of the mistakes you've made in you past and move on. Getting the help you need and keep working on yourself.
A.D. Ellis has a wonderful way of making you care for her characters. You find your self so involved in their story and you want to cry with them. There was once in the book, I was saying... Oh, no she didn't, did she? This book was a little emotional but the epilogue made up for everything.
Don't let all this fill good mushy stuff you read in the previous paragraphs get in the way of letting you think Ellis skipped on the hot scenes. Nope, she has a strong knack for that too. From dirty talk to steamy interlude, Ellis continues with the hard core, ah romance situations.
I hope to see more from this little town!
