Cassidy Yates has spent the last year in
mourning for her husband who was killed while on active duty
in Iraq. Convinced by her friend April to go on vacation with
her, Cassidy is at loose ends because she canít be the free
sexual being that April wants her to be but the loneliness is
eating at her and she is restless. Figuring a swim would help
calm her down enough to sleep, Cassidy heads to the pool and
afterwards, she gets into the sauna. Not seeing anyone
around, she does what she has done for the last year since her
husband died; she brings herself to completion. Mortified
that her life has come down to self-induced orgasms in public,
Cassidy quickly exits the sauna and hurries to her room.
Chase Dempsey has never seen a more
beautiful sight. Going for a swim, he comes across a lovely
red headed nymph obviously doing more than relaxing alone in
the sauna. When she finishes and hurries away, Chase knows
that he has to find her again. He is in Key West for a
vacation and would love to spend the rest of his time there
with someone for fun and relaxation. Spying a piece of
clothing the woman left while hurrying away, Chase grabs it
and decides that he will find her again. That isnít all he
founds, however. He may have just found the woman to spend the
rest o f his life with. Convincing her of this fact might
take some doing since she is adamant she is not ready to be
involved with another man.
Beyond the Tears is right!
This one made me cry; more than once! I loved every word of
this story. I thought Cassidy was brave and shy and simply
astonishing as a heroine. She truly wanted to be with someone
for comfort, I knew and could feel how scared she was to take
a chance on another love. As for Chase? He was my perfect
idea of a hero. Sexy, playful, and just a good person, I
liked how he made sure to be exactly what Cassidy needed in
order to enjoy herself. He was a sounding board and sex god
all rolled into one.
The ending was not how I envisioned it
was going to be. It was just that much sweeter. There was
nothing I didnít like about Beyond the Tears except that it
ended. Michelle Cary is now officially on my authors to
investigate and read more of radar.
