The reunion is supposed to be the start of the rest of their lives. But when Trina Levine sees the soldier she promised to love forever, Hunter Cross looks at her like she’s a stranger. The connection is gone, lost in the blank stare of those soulful brown eyes. Hunter remembers his young daughter but not Trina, and he certainly can’t recall why Trina and her own child are living in his house. Although his lean, rugged frame bears the scars of battle, his mind took the worst hit.
But Hunter Cross hasn’t forgotten everything. His body remembers caressing Trina’s delicate curves, holding her close, never wanting to let go. Was it just a dream, or was it real life? Now, as he tries to put the pieces back together, Trina’s the one who comforts him when his night terrors strike. It’s Trina whose warm touch rekindles a connection no man could deny. Even with the odds stacked against them, Hunter wants to believe. Because passion has the power to awaken the past—and remake the future.
4 In memory and in forgetting Stars
I really enjoyed To Have And To Hold. It was a very sweet, but at times heart-wrenching read. I loved Trina and Hunter. They drew me in right away. I was heart broken right along with them, when Hunter couldn't remember Trina or their life together. I went on a journey with them. I felt Hunter's fear of losing a year of his life, grieved with Trina, and rooted for their love the whole book. The only problem I had with this book was that it would switch from Hunter's POV to Trina's POV without warning. Then I would have to try to figure out who said or was thinking what. I really liked both Hunter's and Trina's daughters they gave cuteness to the story without taking it over. I loved the end it gave me the sweet HEA I crave. This book was a quick, touching read that give me a beautiful love story. This was my first time reading Serena Bell but it won't be my last.
