{Romance Review} Jagged (Colorado Mountain #5) by Kristen Ashley

Jagged (Colorado Mountain, #5)
An old flame rekindled . . .

Zara Cinders always knew Ham Reece was the one, but he wasn't interested in settling down. When she found someone who was, Ham walked out of her life. Three years later, Zara's lost her business, her marriage, and she's barely getting by in a tiny apartment on the wrong side of the tracks. As soon as Ham hears about Zara's plight, he's on her doorstep offering her a lifeline. Now, it will take every ounce of will power she possesses to resist all that he offers.

Ham was always a traveling man, never one to settle down in one town, with one woman, for more time than absolutely necessary. But Ham's faced his own demons, and he's learned a lot. About himself, and about the life he knows he's meant to live. So when he hears that Zara's having a rough time, he wants to be the one to help. In fact, he wants to do more than that for Zara. A lot more. But first, he must prove to Zara that he's a changed man.

"My eyes opened and I saw dark." (page 1, line 1) 
Zara and Ham fight hard. They love hard. It's a long road to love, a hard, full out battle to a happily ever after. I'm not usually a big fan of reunited lovers story but from the very first page Kristen Ashley immersed me in the history, passion and pain between Zara and Ham. I couldn't put Jagged down until I knew how Zara and Ham's story ended. There's hot sex, ex drama, a lot of rehashing the past, family drama, an ex murderer and a fierce love story.

Ham is a total alpha male. He's controlling yes, but it comes from a place of love, a desire for Zara to be safe, secure, protected and happy. He messes up but he loves fiercely and completely. But  Ham? Zara's a sassy girl and that's the best nickname she could come up with? Definitely not sexy.

Zara has been through hell, the hows and whys of it are slowly revealed, but she never gives up. She keeps fighting as life kicks her knees out from her over and over again. She's always loved Ham, knew he was her forever, but he didn't feel the same way. Years passed and things changed and now Ham's back and she's still in love with him.
