Beckett Fox lives his life on the edge between danger and responsibility, and that’s all he’s ever known… until he meets Avery. Now, time at home is more appealing than the do-or-die future he’d always pictured for himself.
Fox has everything he’s ever wanted. But he knows better than anyone that life can change direction faster than the wind.
When an accident threatens to destroy his entire world, Fox will have to choose between fighting for what he loves or letting his past dictate his future.
How much strength does it take to move forward when history seems determined to knock you down? And how do you find the path to redemption when you don’t even recognize your own life?
When I signed up for this blog tour I had no idea Night Fox is book 2 in a series; but intrigued by the book’s blurb, I picked up Hey Sunshine by Tia Giacalone and I was in love. I adored Avery and Fox, and sweet little Annabelle and after the twisted epilogue we got I couldn’t wait to see where the author will take this story next.
Night Fox picks up where Hey Sunshine stopped, but there’s a twist here. After being in a terrible motorcycle accident, Fox doesn’t remember anything about Avery and Annabelle or his wonderful life with them. He’s trapped in a constant fight between past and present – a past that isn’t all that pretty, that involves loss of friends and innocent bystanders and a present that’s all he’s ever wanted but doesn’t think he deserves.
“It’s love, Beckett. It’s messy and unpredictable, but if you give it your whole heart, it’s always enough.”
What I enjoyed the most about this book was hearing our hero’s voice. The author did a great job at describing his emotions and fears and it made me fall in love with him even more. His interactions with everyone around him where perfectly written – he didn’t get an out just because he was in the accident; they all wanted him to man up and fight for the two most important people in his life. And fight he did.
Avery is still the same feisty NA heroine I liked in book 1. In Night Fox she’s fighting for a man she loves, one who doesn’t remember her, but she doesn’t take no for an answer. One thing that separates her from other NA leading ladies is that she’s real, she doesn’t run away from tough times and doesn’t wait to be rescued.
Avery and Fox’s relationship is an amazing one. They are each other’s rock. They have fights here and there, but in the end they always talk to one another trying to fix whatever it is that wasn’t working. Fox is a real guy, nothing bad boy about him, apart from the leather jacket and the motorcycle and Avery is every girl out there – she isn’t virginal, she’s one that had a lot of let downs but somehow always came out on top.
“Find your focus again. Let Avery in – and let her strength carry you both for a little while.”
All in all, Night Fox is a great follow up to a wonderful first book. It’s a story about love and forgiveness, about letting go of the past and living in the present and looking forward to an unpredictable future. This is one NA series that will stay with me forever.
