A stoic force to be reckoned with.
The steady rock on which England is destined to lean.
Everyone’s reliable mate, at the ready to defend when called upon.

To the world, Vance Morley is the next great keeper for the Rogue Football Club, biding his time at the academy. The definition of tall, dark and handsome, his quiet confidence and mysterious persona only draw the public in. He’s their mighty anchor, both on and off the pitch.

But when it comes to the one woman he claims to love, he conveniently vanishes at the exact moment I need him. The first time I saw Vance, he was a ten-year-old standing on his lawn across the street.

The first time he kissed me, we were sixteen and sitting on the very shores we grew up on. We crashed into each other like waves in a storm, fated to destroy everything in our paths. Including each other. The first time Vance saw our son, by serendipitous accident, my little boy had already lived the first year of his life. And instantly, the man who chose football over me wants to have it all. There is no way I can trust his declarations of love and fatherhood, especially when I’m set to marry another man.

We’re a new game, one to occupy him until the world stage beckons. But the more I try to tell myself he’s not the one, the more Vance’s efforts to win us back increase.

How can I guard my heart against seeing my son with his father?
Can Vance really sacrifice his dreams in the name of love and family?
Is there a way that everyone else’s safe harbor can finally become mine too?


This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Carrie Aarons!

The Mighty Anchor is the third and final book in the Rogue Academy series and tells the story of Lara and Vance. Although this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone.

The Mighty Anchor is yet another amazing book in the series. It was such a good read because I couldn’t put it down. I wanted to know what was going to happen to Lara and Vance. One of the reasons that I like this book so much is because Carrie Aarons mentions social anxiety and being introverted, and I couldn’t relate to it more!

Lara is such a strong character, but she did make some mistakes. However, she’s still an amazing character and I loved reading about her. Vance is introverted and has social anxiety and I could relate to him. I also loved how much effort he wanted to put into the relationship between him and Lara as well as the effort he wanted to put into the relationship with his son.

The Mighty Anchor was such a fast paced and well written read. I loved reading about Lara and Vance and I’m kinda sad that this series is over. Carrie Aarons did an amazing job with this series and I cannot wait to read her other books!
