Gideon has always taken care of his family being that he is the oldest brother of 5 boys. When his mom and younger brother Easton were in trouble, Gideon was the first person to be there and fix it.
When he saw Savannah for the first time, he knew that he wanted to be with her. But because of the craziness that is his life and what events unfolded with his parents, he ended up hurting Savannah rather than being her hero and her one true love.
Now, three years later, he has a chance to fix things between them, but only if Savannah wants Gideon still.
Savannah was extremely hurt by the things that Gideon did three years ago, so she is going to start off fresh when she goes to college next year. Sure, Gideon will be there too, but she is not going to let him stop her from attending one of the best schools in the subject that she wants to study.
But Gideon is determined to win her over. Savannah has built a wall around her heart and she is so much tougher than what she was three years ago. Savannah can handle anything that he throws at her, but she wasn't expecting him to want to tell her the truth. That is a curve ball that she wants the answers to, which may just melt the wall around her heart enough to let him back in.
However, the nightmare that is Gideon's life is still following him, and he needs to figure out the right way to handle everything before he loses his last chance with Savannah.
I love the Royals series. Ever since the first book's synopsis was roaming around and I caught onto it, I realized how much I love the situations that all of the characters are going through. Because even though the books were focused on Ella and Reed, all of the characters were dealing with an issue in their life in some way. And in this short novel, we got to see Gideon come into a full circle in the end.
Being able to get the story firsthand from Gideon and Savannah was great. It really hit hard core how they started off and how they ended. We always heard about the terrible break up, but seeing the events unfold on why they broke up was just gut wrenching.
I'm very proud that Savannah stuck to her guns and really made Gideon work for a second chance, even though she really wasn't going to give him one. But once she realized the whole story, she realized that things were not as they seemed, and life was about to get rough now that she was included in the roller coaster ride of the Royal life.
I'm so glad that I got a chance to finally read this, and as always I'm looking forward to more novel by Erin Watt :)
