Published: September 15, 2015
Avery Nolan’s father has never been a part of her life. As a result, she finds herself becoming a caretaker. Always trying to please other people, willing to tuck her own concerns aside for the happiness of others. She is selfless. She is a nurturer. On the outside, it appears Kade Thomas has it all, but no one can understand the guilt and ache he feels daily. He is haunted by his past. Every time he closes his eyes, he finds himself reliving the same nightmare, over and over again. He blames himself for the loss of Jenna. He pushed her too far and she paid the price. Avery saw something special in Kade, from the first day she met him—she could feel it. But the darkness that consumes him is… Uncontrollable. Will she finally be the one to break down the walls he’s built around his heart and soul? Or will she find some walls are just Indestructible…
“Oh yes,” I moaned much louder than I anticipated. The problem was I didn’t feel the slightest bit embarrassed. “Yes, right there, a little harder, deeper,” I instructed as my eyes rolled back into my head and I fisted the sheet beneath me.
“Does that feel good right there?”
All I could do was nod. I was entirely too invested in the pleasure to form complete, meaningful sentences.
“Wow.” Harper’s voice broke through my euphoria. “If I didn’t know better myself, I would think there was a whole lot of kink going on in here. My customers are gonna think I’m running a secret sex shop in the massage room.”
I wanted to yell at her to stop killing my buzz, but the words got hung up when I tried to force them out. The only sound I could make was moan after moan of ecstasy.
I hadn’t even noticed the moans coming from Quinn on the next bed over until that moment. “Harper, you are without a doubt the most amazing sister-in-law.” Quinn groaned as the massage therapist, Greg, rubbed her lower back, digging in just a little deeper.
“I’ll also be your dead sister-in-law if you keep moaning like that. Jett will kill me if he hears you. It already took hours to convince him to let you come today. Last week when you girls came in, he stood guard outside the doorway.”
“Greg thought he was going to die a slow death. Jett scared the hell out of him.” I caught the alarmed look on Greg’s face and buried my face in the headrest to hide my laughter. Jett was a caveman to begin with, but his behavior had only intensified after the wedding.
“Okay, okay, enough about Jett,” Quinn whined. “Greg can’t concentrate when you’re scaring him. Please do not kill my massage.”
Harper snickered and turned back to me, her gaze scanning over me. “How are you feeling?” It was a loaded question. She was asking about the pregnancy, Kade, and the situation between him and me.
“Good,” I assured her without giving her anything more. I closed my eyes and hoped she’d drop it.
I have no idea why I actually thought Harper would let it die.
“That’s all you’re giving me? Honestly, Avery, spill some details.” When I opened my eyes, she was using the “determined Harper” glare.
I stared right back. “Bug Quinn for gossip.”
“Um, no.” She leaned back against the wall, crossing her arms over her chest. “Jett is my brother, and the last thing I want is too many details when it comes to those two. Quinn knows this. That’s why she always throws things back at me that I don’t need to know. My brother taught her to evade me like that, so getting details out of her is no longer any fun. The last thing I want to know is how long my brother lasted this morning or how they had sex on the kitchen table.”
She faked a shiver and I laughed. I looked over at Quinn, and she nodded to confirm what Harper had just said.
“Well done,” I told her. “Table sex.” Then a thought occurred to me. “You are going to bleach said table when you get home, right? I mean, we’ve eaten dinner off it.”
“Here’s the address,” Easton said as he passed the paper over the top of the table toward me. “Bennie said they live in a ranch-style home at the end of the lane.”
Vermont. They stuck around for a few months after the funeral and then picked up and moved thousands of miles away. Running from the place where they saw their daughter everywhere they looked.
“You sure about this, Kade?” Jett asked as he sat down in the booth next to me.
“Yeah, I am. It’s something I have to do. It’s the last step before I can say good-bye to Jenna,” I explained as I twisted the paper between my fingers. “I’m ready to move on with Avery, and I can’t do that until I do this.”
My stomach was in knots at the idea of facing Jenna’s parents. I had no idea what to expect, but I wanted to close this chapter.
“I’m gonna need something from you, Jett,” I said as I looked up from my hands.
“And what would that be, brother?” he asked.
“Keep an eye on my girl,” I said, and he grinned widely and nodded as Easton chuckled. “Yeah, I know. You never thought you’d see the day, right?”
Jett placed his hand on my shoulder and patted it.
“Nope, I didn’t, but it looks good on ya.” “What does?” I asked.
“Love, infatuation, whatever you wanna call it,” Easton said.
“Pussy-whipped, henpecked, does it matter how you refer to it?” Jude flopped down in the seat next to Easton, chuckling. “Avery has you wrapped around her pinky, and you are sunk to the deepest depths, brother.”
I smiled. “Where the hell did you come from?”
“I’ve been quietly observing this exchange you three were having.” He leaned back, waiting for me argue with what he had said. But he was right. It was pointless. Avery had me tied up tight, and there was no coming back.
Uncontrollable by C.A. Harms is the third book in the Key West Series and tells the story of the every intriguing Kade Thomas. Kade Thomas has been a prominent character in the other two books in this series, and as a reader I have always wondering about his story and the guilt that his friends believe that he carries for the death of his high school girlfriend years before. Avery Nolan has watched Kade from afar, slowly loving him but knowing that he had demons that prevented him from being truly happy with his life. Resound to being only his friend, Avery enjoys spending time with Kade, and often wonders if he shares the same feelings for her that she does for him.
Kade Thomas holds himself responsible for the vehicle accident that killed his high school girlfriend so many years before. Not able to let go of the events that took place on the fateful day, Kade has made his life as simple as possible, work at the garage, drink his pain away, and only engage in one night stands. The feelings that Kade begins to develop for Avery scare him, as he doesn't believe he deserves to be happy when Jenna isn't here to experience life anymore because of him.
Avery finally makes a move, taking matters into her own hands, and has sex with Kade, that turns out to be anything but how she envisioned. With the detachment of her friend during the act, Avery second guesses everything she ever felt for him, and decides to only be his friend as it is finally time to let him go from her heart. And just when Avery decides to begin moving on, she gets a surprise she never expected but accepts wholeheartedly all the same.
Will Kade be able to fight through the darkness of his guilt in order to step up and be the man that Avery needs? Or will he succumb to the numbness that he yearns for at the bottom of the bottle? You will have to read the book to find out. This was a 3.5 star read for me and I recommend this series to others as I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I have.
I loved each book in this series but Kade was always my favorite character even when he was standing in the shadows. I would give this book a 4 stars and would recommend to others. There will be plenty of emotions portrayed in this story and some smokin hot goodies too!
I have read my many books by C.A. Harms and I haven't found one yet that I didn't enjoy. Thanks for another great story and can't wait for more from this author!
Get to one clicking cause you don't wanna miss another great one!
I enjoy happy endings in my love stories. Loving those scenes that give it the needed angst and heat to keep you hooked and wanting more. Just enough drama to make her heart race and your stomach flutter. I haven't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently I have taken on a new liking and now I am addicted to Romance Novel.
