Sometimes the most beautiful souls are the most broken.Protect.
From the minute I met her, I wanted to offer my protection.
I wanted her to be mine but didn’t have anything of value to offer. Just my jaded heart, broken soul, and undying love.
I gave up my pride, my hostility, and my heart to make her happy.
Fuck the consequences, I would’ve given up anything, even my life, to keep her safe.
Both our lives were soaked in tragedy from day one.
I ignored the people who warned me he was dead inside.
Everyone said he was bad, violent, and would drag me down.
They were wrong. He was as broken as I was.
Together, we’d heal our hearts and stitch together our souls.
"Everyone's a little broken, don't you think? Around you I feel whole"
Fifty chapters, and they flew by. I love Autumn Jones lake's MC series and couldn't wait to see what she had written for the cards of love collection and Ile be honest with it being a collection of books by different authors I expected something like a sample of her writing, a novella type read like you get in anthologies.
What I got was an absolutely breathtaking journey of young love with hopes and dreams.
Roman and Juliet are two 17 year old's who have already suffered enough hardship and heartache in their life. Juliet is in the care of her Uncle and aunt after losing her parents and Roman has been passed around from one foster home to another.
Romans first day at school turns out to also be the first day of a new life with new beginnings, hopes and promises when he meets Juliet and is instantly infatuated with her.
"I loved the way her name felt rolling off my tongue.
She didn't jerk her hand away, and held my gaze.
I made up my mind right then and there.
I was going to marry this girl".
Knight of swords is a journey from teenage life and love into adulthood and all the ups and downs they face together, it also tells of how Roman ventured into the MC world but it isn't an MC read. Knight Of swords is the story of two teenagers who find each other when they needed someone in their lives to love and care for them even if they didn't know it at the time.
Together, we'd heal our heart's and stitch together our souls.
I was completely captivate by Roman and Juliet's story, I really like the journey with these kind of books, teenagers who fall in love and venture into adult life together.
Not only did Autumn Jones lake give me a new favourite couple but she exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be reading more books in this collection by different authors.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea. Can be read as a standalone.
