Almost Innocent by Carina Adams
This story was very powerful. I wouldn't consider it a super dark read, but it touches on darker subject matter like domestic abuse and the aftermath of it. Declan and Gabby each have their own struggles and their journey to overcome together is a battle until the very end. I loved Declan's Alpha ways and how protective he is of Gabby. The connection between them is strong and Carina Adams writing left me breathless a few times. Twisted and deep but overall, a truly beautiful story.
About the Author
Carina Adams has been writing and creating characters for as long as she can remember, allowing her to fall in love with the next man of her dreams with every new story.
Thankfully, fate stepped in and granted her the ultimate wish – a life full of men. Carina lives in a picturesque New England town with her husband, the man who ruined the thought of all others, and two amazing sons who always keep her on her toes.
Carina received her MBA in May, but would much rather play with her imaginary friends (the voices in her head) than work her 8 to 5. When she isn’t trying to juggle being a working mom with karate and drama practices, surprising her children with her sci-fi movie knowledge, or writing, you can find her with her nose pressed against her kindle, on the back of her husband’s motorcycle, or living life vicariously as her Derby Girl persona, Writers Block.
Carina is currently writing Unfinished Business, the next installment of the Bastards MC novels.
