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.
I have recently become a huge fan of Anything Aly writes and it seems she just get’s better and better with each book that’s released.
Thrive is no different.
At first glance I swore this was a love triangle and I DO NOT do love triangles but I trusted Aly to make this right, so I went on and THIS IS NOT A LOVE TRIANGLE. It’s more about two people being in love with each other at the wrong time.
Jeremy ‘Lark’ is in love with Mira, Mira is in love with Jeremy, but her boyfriend Kurt is who she chose for her reasons. They were all friends, until one night, there weren’t and the poo hit the fan. Mira broke two hearts that night she chose to stay with Kurt, her’s and Larks. And lark..my heart bleed for him in that moment.
When a man hits rock bottom, one of two things happen:
Or he thrives.
Now, years have gone by and Mira, you can see has had a horrible time and has always regretted her decision, but now, trouble from her former relationship with Kurt barges into her life, literally, and with her friends life hanging in the balance there is only one person she knows, or hopes will help her.
Lark. Who for the first few years was in such a bad place and then he turned his life around, has a good thing with Guardian Protection agency, an ex, but has two twin girls out of it so hes happy and is not looking to hear from the one person he thought he left in the past. Until she calls.
He undoubtedly is pissed at her, I would be too, and at first refuses to help her, but she whispers his name and all is lost.
There is a fine line between an alpha male and an asshole and Aly knows that line, hell she might have even invented that line. Lark is both a jerk but sweet and the the interactions between him and Mira are the stuff sighs are made of.
This is again, why I love Aly Martinez’s work so much. This book had everything, humor, drama, action and aaacction(bedroom).

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.
Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.
She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
