Publisher's Summary

Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It's been six years since she's seen her brother's best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it's time to move on. Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance…Just when she opens her heart to her friend, Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can't resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he's begging to be saved from his demons - the memories of the day he destroyed his family. As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly's judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction?

    "Beautifully written story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Aly's relationship with Jared when they were growing up. How she always loves him, even when she was young.


    Any additional comments?

    The concept of this story is not something new but it was beautifully written. This story is about second chance. I could feel Jared's guilt and heartache. I was so sad for his lost but also how he blamed himself. I could feel the chemistry and love between Jared and Aly. I thought the relationship they had growing up was very special. Made me wish that I have someone like Jared growing up; someone who always be there for me and stood up for me.

    I look forward to the next book. I hope that Jared learns to let go of the past and guilt.

    "Really Slow Going"

    The build up took entirely too long and by the time you got to the issue bam the book is over really. 10 hrs of this and this is how it ends GAHHH. I guess my expectaions were too high and I wanted more. Not for sure as of right now how I really feel about reading book 2 when it comes out.
