Tearing Down Walls
Love Under Construction #2
by: Deanndra Hall
Released: October 2013
You're a successful businessman. A molten-blooded Italian hunk. And the newest, hottest, most in-demand service Dom/top in a 500-mile radius, with dozens of women falling at your feet. So, which woman? How do you choose?
That's easy - you pick the one who can't stand you.
And that's exactly what Vic has done. He's tried desperately to get the wrong woman out of his heart, and it looks like he may have succeeded. And just when he thinks everything in his life is falling into place, Cupid plays a nasty joke on him and he falls for the one woman who doesn't want to be anywhere near him, Somehow it isn't already bad enough that he has a secret keeping him from having a loving, long-term relationship; to make matters worse, if he wants to have a chance with the ice princess, he has to keep her alive long enough to tear down the walls she's built around herself.
Laura is as prickly as they get, but there's a reason. Her clothes hide a secret that she's sure would make any man run, and that secret is about to get her killed. The trauma she endured during her service to her country left her unable to feel any emotion or trust anyone, and the idea of ever letting a man touch her is out the window. When she returned home from Bosnia, her family shunned her and her harsh personality, so she's dealt with her demons alone and on her own for too long. But Laura didn't expect to meet a man who would promise to keep her safe and would die to keep that promise. That makes him a man worth trusting. And when her past wants to kill her to keep her quiet, can she open up to him before it's too late?
The second full-length novel in the Love Under Construction series, Tearing Down Walls is a fun, erotic, romantic, and suspenseful romp that takes you back into the world of the Walters family of Louisville, Kentucky. It features many characters over the age of 40 and contains too many steamy, hedonistic sex scenes to be suitable for anyone under 18 years of age. Step into the Walters' world and have some fun!
Oh how appropriately named this book is. Book 2 in the Love Under Construction Series is just….just… well hell, I don’t know if I can find the words to appropriately describe how much I love this Series so far.
I was right when I said previously that I would be cringing through some of this book, and I did. But oh my the revelations, family secrets, tragedies and lunatic stalking definitely overshadowed the cringe for me.
Zio Vic has some issues, we learned that in the first book. Suddenly he thinks he might be faced with a possible solution for his issues. He is supported by Tony and Nikki in his efforts to get past his issues and to have what Tony and Nikki have. Or is it what Tony has??????
Laura has been on the run ever since that tragic day the bomb went off and sent her into hiding, but now she has been found and needs protection in the way of a giant beautifully handsome Italian that she is completely comfortable and uncomfortable around.
Vic and Laura’s wounds go much deeper than I was able to imagine, the shock I had upon discovering ALL of the truth was pretty strong and suddenly everything clicked into place. But the struggle it takes Vic and Laura is nothing short of amazing, to see these people go through all of that and come out the other side with so much love and hope made Tearing Down Walls my favorite book so far in this series. I can’t wait for more, I’m sooooooooo hoping book 3 will be about Steve! Ohhhh I didn’t mention Steve before? Pick up this series to find out more about Steve and all the other amazing characters.
