Trevan Bean has a job that’s going from illegal to frightening, a boyfriend who may not be in his right mind, and a guardian angel who might actually be evil incarnate. Add to that the reappearance of his boyfriend’s estranged family, death threats, kidnapping, and the struggle of saving money to realize a dream, and Trevan has a lot on his plate. But Trevan is up to the challenge: he promised Landry a happily ever after, and Landry’s going to have it if it kills him!

It just might.

Landry Carter was a broken doll when they met two years ago but has grown into a partner who can stand at Trevan’s side… most of the time. Now that Trevan’s life just got scary—and Landry just got himself kidnapped—Trevan has to hope Landry’s love stays strong through this newest challenge, because the happily ever after won’t happen if Trevan has to go it alone.

Okay I can’t think of any words to accurately describe this book…
What happened in this was crazy!!! Landry um he was so out there with everything he had going on, the bipolar mood swings, the over the top jealousy, the threatening to kill Trevan if he ever left him.  WTH!!! So many times I wanted to yell at Trevan run, just run right now.. I just cant even wrap my head around everything that happened in this book.  Landry needs help and their relationship is one toxic mess is all I could think after reading this book.
All the back and forth between these two “your mine” was so over the top it was just way to much!  Don’t get me wrong I am all good with a alpha man who is all protective but this came across to me as way too much borderline unhealthy… Trevan was so controlling of Landry at first, I could not figure out why then you realize it is to keep Landry from having a melt down.. That should be your first sign he needs help.
When they visited Landry’s family that was just too much.  Now I see were Landry got it.
Then there was the whole I am going to throw a hissy, go spend a huge amount of money and tell you I am going to go sleep with someone else because I am upset at you for not needing me to hold you when you were upset.  Another WTH moment!!
So I will give to the author because as much as this book was way over the top on somethings she really drew me in and I could not put it down.
Now that is not me saying do I think a relationship like theirs is ever okay and I really just thought that they were a hot mess that did not belong together at all.  I mostly just thought they needed some help like right now.  I was glad to see Landry get that at the end, but I still do not think they were right for each other at all.
So I am going to give this 3 stars for as much as I liked the authors writing and how this book really grabbed me. The two MC’s were just too much for me and their whole relationship was not healthy at all.  I seriously thought one of them would end up killing the other before the end of the book.  I think this is the first time I have read a book were the relationship between the two MC’s was this scary..  I am still trying to wrap my head around all that lol.
