Book: Ryder (Slater Brother #4)
Author: L.A. Casey

Summary: Branna Murphy is broken. For months now she has been a part of a one-sided relationship to a man she loves more than life itself. She prayed for a miracle, and hoped something would change, but found that was wishful thinking.

Talking didn’t work. Shouting didn’t work. Crying didn’t work. Nothing bloody worked.

Ryder Slater is furious. For months now he has been lying to a woman he would take a bullet for in order to protect her. He is involved in something that goes deeper than his old past, and if he strays off target, people will start to die. People he loves.

He couldn’t talk. He couldn’t slip up. He couldn’t lose focus. He couldn’t do a damn thing.

Things between Ryder and Branna are at rock bottom, and Ryder knows it. Not only will he be taking on a force that could destroy his whole family, but he will be battling tooth and nail to save his relationship and keep the love of his life by his side.

Review: This book is one emotional and twisted roller costar, and the thing is is that through all the crazyness everything works out perfectly and even better than they did before. I love how Ryder and Branna do work things out, but rather than jump back into a relationship the two of them work on creating a deep and meaningful relationship first by spending time together without sex to rebuild their bond. I also love how we get to see the depth behind Ryder and how much he does love Branna (although he would have saved himself a lot of grief and heartbreak if he just told her what was going on from the beginning) The flash backs are pretty interesting as well to see where their relationship started and how it ended up being so broken to then being fixed at the end. This is a book that was hard to read and not because it was bad, but rather because it pulled at the heart strings and your heart ache's for both Branna and Ryder and when the finally end up together it makes it all worth it!
