** CAN BE READ AS A STAND ALONE NOVEL**

Kayden Michaels has a past filled with sex, addiction, and heartache. A past that he’s avoided sharing with the love of his life, Sophia, and held close to his core not risking rejection. Needing to get his addictions in check and gain control of his life for the sake of his family, Kayden is forced to confront his past and make amends for the path he’s walked.

Kayden must recount every carnal act and the betrayal from those he’s loved to identify the triggers that spur his addictions and overcome it all to be worthy of Sophia’s love.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable.

*********************************************************
This is a look into Kayden Michaels past.  It is filled with sex, addiction, loneliness, heartbreak, revenge and at times love.  When you are Kayden's girl there is no other. He will dedicate his life to you and never stray.

Kayden is leading a very dark life. He parties too much, drinks to much, does too many drugs and woman are clearly not a good idea in his world.  Kayden has super bad luck when it comes to woman. He has had a fiance cheat on him, a wife leave him because she found someone else and because of his drinking, an unborn child never to be brought into this world, an overbearing girlfriend breakup with him which lead to him being arrested and making him homeless, a false sexual harassment suit filed by his female boss getting him fired........ He turns them on and then flees after all of these hassles. He wants no relationship beyond sex. And really who can blame the guy.

Kayden must write down this story to help himself identify the triggers that impact his life in such a negative way. He is doing this for himself and Sophia. He needs to be worthy of Sophia's love.

Kayden meets Sophia at the end of this story but will refer to her throughout. I read this book before "Untangle Me" which is book #1 of Love at Last series. I'm not sure which would be better to read before the other but I liked this story.

I found myself feeling bad for Kayden even though a lot of times he brought on a lot of his own problems with the drinking, drugs and woman. I thought why would any woman cheat on him. If cheating was about sex then it would never have happened because Kayden's superpower is indeed of a sexual nature. However, cheating is more about a relationship lacking in other ways and throughout Kayden's journey I was trying to see what the relationships were lacking.  All I can figure out is the drinking aspect was a true hindrance on most of the woman. I think had Kayden found someone who could just love him he would be able to pull himself out of the dark hole.  I think that is what Sophia is for him. This is how Sophia saves him from himself, with her love and understanding.
