First glance into Hot Addiction by Lynn Raye Harris.
Five years ago…
Dexter Davidson checked his watch for the thousandth time that morning. It was nearing noon and his bride-to-be was over an hour late. His father stood in the chancel, his rented tuxedo making him appear distinguished and genteel rather than rough and worn like the farmer he was. But the look on his face was what killed Dex the most. It was one of pity and a growing resignation.
“Fuck this,” Dex growled as he clenched his jaw tight and walked down the aisle, between the rows of pews where the guests waited for the ceremony to start. The chapel doors were open to the outside because it was springtime and warm. But it was also raining. A soft, gentle rain, but rain nonetheless.
Perhaps the rain had caused a delay. Dex stood in the open door and took his phone from his pocket. Annabelle still hadn’t answered his texts. He sent another one, just in case, and felt his heart shrivel just a little bit more when no answer came.
He tried calling but it went to voicemail without even ringing. “Belle,” he said, his throat tight and his eyes stinging, “where are you, baby? I’m worried. Please let me know you’re safe. If you’ve changed your mind, it’s okay. Just let me know.”
It wasn’t okay if she’d changed her mind, but what else could he say? Annabelle Quinn had been his girl for the past four years. He’d fallen madly in love with her in an instant. He’d known her most of his life, had ignored her for much of it because she was his little sister’s best friend, but one day, pow!, she’d smiled at him the way she had a million times before—and he was done for. He’d been hers from that moment forward.
And now they were supposed to be getting married. He’d come home on leave from the Army at Christmas and asked her to marry him. She’d said yes. She and his sister had planned everything while he went back to Afghanistan and did his best to stay alive. He didn’t know how long he stood there before he felt a presence beside him.
“I’m sorry, Dex.” Katie put a hand on his arm. “She’s not coming.”
Another book that managed to keep me awake so I could finish it, not but I did finish it fast and I loved it, and will read it again, that is how much I liked it.
Dex Davidson was waiting for the love of his life, they were getting married, but the bride was late, that is until he read this message from her.
" Tell Dex I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have let it go this far. I’ve thought for a while that marrying him wasn’t right, that I’m not the woman for him—I should have been brave enough to say so. He deserves more."
With a broken heart Dex worked him self into his military career, training hard enough to be accepted into the elite Black Ops unit. The love he felt for her burned into nothing because she betrayed him.
But Annabelle Quinn crashed back into his life begging him to save her. Dex is astounded by her daring, and hate burns in his soul, and had not a single though about not laughing at her.
Annabelle was forced even blackmailed into leaving Dex and forced to marry a man who abused her, she lived in hell for 5 years. Her husband had just recently died and as much as she wanted to be free she was not.
Someone is after her for some money that her husband had taken, her life is hanging by a thread and so would her young daughter's. As time is running out for her she has no one to turn to but the man she jilted.
Dex finds out the her husband committed treason against the US by selling top secret military project to the Russians. He now despite his feelings will protect her and find out who is threatening her.
He wont all for her again, once was enough for him, and if he discovers the secrets she has been hiding ? it would be over or would it?
