I have enjoyed every single book in this series, but I think this one may be my favorite of them all. I've been looking forward to Easy's book for a while and was not the least bit disappointed. I loved the friends to lovers aspect and the touch of almost forbidden love.
The book starts out a year after Joker's death and his wife is still learning to cope with her new set of circumstances. She's trying to get herself pull together and move on, but she's not ready for some things. When Easy offers her some help in getting her house ready to go on the market, she accepts needing the help, but also needing a friend to spend time with.
Easy knows he has feelings for Dani, he just isn't sure what to do with them, believing that nothing can come out of them. But he wants to do what he can for him, and if that means helping her with the house or anything else she needs, then he's ready to do it.
But as they work together and grow closer, more than friendship blooms and they have to work through their feelings and decide how to proceed. It's not easy when you add in the mixed feelings of love and guilt, when you mix the past and the present and try to find a way to make it all fit. The path isn't easy for these two, and its full of so many things most couples don't have to do with, but written in such a way that it's still a beautiful story.
As with previous books in the Wild Aces, we get to see how close these men and their wives have become, how they have formed a tight knit family. Evident in how they support each other and try to be there in any way needed. I loved how this added to the story, because everyone knowing the history meant there was an extra feeling of what was at stake if these two didn't work out.
On Broken Wings was an emotional read, but even as I went through each emotion and as my feelings alternated from one scene to the next, I could feel the love that was there. There was so much more to this story than friends to lovers, more than moving on from loss. I enjoyed this book from start to finish, loving the journey from friends to more and watching as Easy and Dani came through it all.
