Once Grace and Sam have found each other, they know they must fight to stay together. For Sam, this means a reckoning with his werewolf past. For Grace, it means facing a future that is less and less certain.
Into their world comes a new wolf named Cole, whose past is full of hurt and danger. He is wrestling with his own demons, embracing the life of a wolf while denying the ties of being a human.
For Grace, Sam, and Cole, life a constant struggle between two forces--wolf and human--with love baring its two sides as well. It is harrowing and euphoric, freeing and entrapping, enticing and alarming. As their world falls apart, love is what lingers. But will it be enough?

Sorry for the Short Review on this book…but it was when I was still in the Navy and my work schedule was hectic at the time.
I can’t believe what is happening to Grace in this book. =( Grace keeps getting into trouble because she loves Sam, but her parents think it’s just a fling she will outgrow. They do everything to keep her away from him. Sam is also going through some things in this book that is putting him through hell. He doesn’t turn into a wolf anymore, so now he has to live his life like he always wanted. I love how Maggie kept going back and forth to each character to see what their point of view is in the book. Although, I could’ve dealt without Cole. He was a pain in the butt in the book. I just wanted to go into the book and smack him. I’m looking forward to the next book, “Forever”. I want to see what the author does to Grace. I also want to see how Sam deals with his humanity.
Linger, I give 4 stars.
I guess I should type a bio here. I'm FranJessca or Fran for short. I'm the owner of Book Lovin' Mamas and main Reviewer. I've been reviewing books since I got out of the Navy in 2011. Now 7 years later, I'm still reviewing, but this time with my oldest daughter aka Lil' Sidekick.
When I'm not reading and reviewing, you can find me at my day job during the week and on the weekend taking care of our little farm.
