Spike knows tragedy, he knows that feelings are better left hidden. He refuses to put his heart out there again, it’s a pain he’s not willing to feel a second time around. He’s accepted he’s going to spend forever alone. That’s all he deserves.
But then there’s Ciara, the sister of his deceased wife. She’s beautiful and damned determined to throw herself into his life in hopes they can reform an old friendship, but Spike won’t hear of it, and Ciara refuses to give up.
Who will win the battle of wills?
This book was much better than the first. Heaven’s Sinners is about Spike and Ciara (is it pronounced Sierra, Key-ara, I couldn’t figure it out and it drove me crazy). We learned about Spike’s tragic story in the first book. Now in book 2 we learn how it all happened.
Spike (or Danny, to Ciara) and Ciara were best friends when they were younger. They were in love, but both were too proud to admit it. So Ciara’s sister, Cheyenne, throws herself at Spike and they end up married. Heartbroken, Ciara runs. Then Cheyenne dies, and everyone blames Spike, including Ciara.
Now Ciara is back and trying to make amends with Spike. He doesn’t want to forgive her and pushes her away, but she is persistent and won’t take no for an answer.
I felt a better connection to this book based on the backstory of Ciara and Spike. It was told in past and present day, and from both of their points of view, which made it much more interesting.
