Where Winter Finds You (Black Dagger Brotherhood #17.5) by J. R. Ward

When Trez lost his beloved to a tragic death (The Shadows, Black Dagger Brotherhood #13), his soul was crushed and his destiny seemed relegated to suffering. But when he meets a mysterious female, he becomes convinced his true love has been reincarnated. Is he right? Or has his grief created a disastrous delusion?

Therese has come to Caldwell to escape a rift with her bloodline. The revelation that she was adopted and not born into her family shakes the foundations of her identity, and she is determined to make it on her own. Her attraction to Trez is not what she’s looking for, except the sexy Shadow proves to be undeniable.

Has fate provided a grieving widower with a second chance...or is Trez too blinded by the past to see the present for what it really is? In this sensual, arresting book full of the themes of redemption and self-discovery, two lost souls find themselves at a crossroads where the heart is the only compass that can be trusted...but that may require a courage that neither of them possesses. 

4 out of 5 stars

Where Winter Finds You was a wonderful story full of emotion, healing, and love. Since learning about Trez’s loss and heartbreak in The Shadows, I've been wanting him to get his HEA, and did he ever. My heart is happy! A truly great read!

I loved Therese. I loved how she was determined to make it on her own and make a life for herself. I got her pain and frustration and l liked how she worked through it, accepted some things about her past, and moved forward. Now Trez, he's in a bad place after losing his mate so him working through everything and meeting Therese was emotional and heart wrenching. There were so many feelings! He had so much guilt happening because of his feelings towards her. I loved the pull and attraction that he and Therese shared. I enjoyed them coming together and how certain details were coming to light, connecting them. I loved how it all tied together and the special moments happening, and how Selena was tied into it all.

This was a wonderful story set in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world. I loved seeing the bond between iAm and Trez as they work through their own issues. I liked how everyone in the Brotherhood cared so much for Trez. I adored Lassiter, who sometimes seems like comic relief but really, he feels deeply and has a heart of gold. Anytime he's a part of the story I'm always smiling.

I enjoyed the story and the build to all the details and I loved the dots connecting as Trez and Therese came together. It was definitely a feel-good story with characters I love in a world I can't get enough of. It was beautifully done!
