Mara and Grey met years ago. He is trouble in and out of jail. Yet their attraction is undeniable. The only problem is Mara's married. Some time has passed and Grey still thinks of Mara. One night after work Mara comes face to face with Grey again. Grey kidnaps her and discovers her marriage isn't so good. The only reason she stays is for her elderly dogs. Grey then tells her he finds out she is his soul mate and wants to spend eternity with her. Mara wants to stay but she must go home to her dogs. When they part Grey promises he will return for her when she calls him. Mara leaves and goes home only to discover her life and her two dogs lives will not last must longer.
This is a great basis for a story, however I feels focused on Mara and her two dogs too much. I know this is a huge factor in her decision to stay with her husband, but the story starts to get a little dull and lack luster. When Mara and Grey are reunited the story is a bit more interesting. I expect fire and passion between the two since they have been apart for so long but didn't receive. At this time, I feel maybe the story is a little rushed and it lost it’s buildup. I wanted more especially with how special Mara is.
