Every Night Without You by Violet Duke

Title: Every Night Without You
Series: Unfinished Love #2
Author: Violet Duke
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 18, 2017


Seven years.

Seven damn years of wondering whether the woman was still alive...whether she'd spent the last two thousand five hundred fifty-five days wondering if he was still alive.

Wondering whether that night was as burned into her memory as it was his.

Seven years having his heart tethered to Addison―and now she's back. With even more reasons to run than she'd had then.

Only this time, Caine isn't letting the gorgeous little flight risk out of his sight.

Regardless of how noble her reasons may be.

“Violet Duke is my go-to read when I just want to immerse myself in a captivating romance.” – NYT bestselling author J.S. Cooper 

EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU (Bk 2 of 2) takes place seven years after BEFORE THAT NIGHT (Bk 1 of 2), and is the conclusion of Caine & Addison's story of love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will run―and chase―when their past threatens their future.

“Go inside, Addison. Right now. While I’m still able to let you.”

Every cell in her body rebelled against the command.

“Please, honey. Don’t do that. Don’t flash that look at me. That stubborn rebel-in-stilettos sass will have you under me in your bed in two seconds flat.”

He groaned at whatever her eyes were telling him next.

To be fair, he started it with that panty-melting threat.

“Baby, you’re killing me.”

Right back at you.

He pushed open the door the rest of the way for her, one hand holding the top of the frame as if physically stopping himself from doing anything else.

For a while, the internal battles they each faced with themselves kept them both cemented where they stood.

But eventually, the growing torment and tension racking his entire frame made her back up a single step and clear the doorway.

“Lock the deadbolt.”

These overprotective demands just shouldn’t be this sexy.

She shut the door and laid her palm against it.

Knowing he was still out there, she confessed quietly to the wooden barricade between them, “That memory stayed with me, too. Even now, the only way I’m able to eventually fall asleep is to imagine your arms around me. Holding me. Keeping me safe.”

Loving me.
It was a full minute before she finally heard his heavy tactical boots walk away.

This was my first book by Violet Duke. It was a super quick read… I thought it was due to the fact that I couldn’t stop reading it but, no, it’s 200 pages. I enjoyed her writing and loved her characters and their development. Most of all, I loved that this isn’t an “Insta Love” book. There was such a nice gradual pace to it.

Addison was amazing. She’s clever and amazingly, strong. I felt for her. She had an addict for a mom that just ditched me. So Addison stepped up to take on all her mom’s responsibilities… her two siblings. Addison did the best she could do as a young (surrogate) mom. She struggled to save money for an apartment so they wouldn’t have to live in the van forever. I was just impressed by her as a person. Her strong will and courage was remarkable.  

Of course, the leading man had to be a total catch to earn Addison’s love. I thought Caine was a perfect match. He was so thoughtful and sweet. He gave her the stability she so needed in her life. He didn’t pressure but accepted her secrets when she opened up. He wouldn’t give up on her or them. I just loved how she wiggled right in.

This was such a great book! I’m so glad I waited for the second book before starting or I would have driven myself bonkers!!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

This is the second book in the Unfinished Love series. This is not a standalone as it is the continuation of Addison and Caine’s story. Their story started in Before That Night, which I LOVED! You can check out that review above.

The first book was so much deeper than this one… which is NOT a bad thing!! I loved this book, maybe even slightly more that the first. This book was really focused on finding each other again. There was so much more love and family… seeing what they lost over 7 years must have proven that they don’t want to go through that again. This book just felt lighter… if that makes sense. It was a fantastic ending to this duet. There was a ton more fun in this book. This book was definitely more focused on family and grown together than the secrets and just Caine and Addison. I loved that!

I love, LOVE, flove that we get more from this family! We really got a bit more of everyone in this book and that just gets me so synced up for more books. Plus this couples “ending” or “beginning” was just so perfect that I can’t wait to get some updates on them through other books!
