From New York Times best-selling author Cassia Leo comes a twisted and passionate love story that pushes the boundaries of loyalty.
Maybe we shouldn't have fallen so fast and so willingly.
Maybe we shouldn't have moved in together before we went on our first date.
Maybe we should have given our wounds time to heal before we tore each other to shreds.
Maybe we should have never been together.
Houston has kept a devastating secret from Rory since the day he took her into his home. But the tragic circumstances that brought them together left wounds too deep to heal. Five years after the breakup, Houston and Rory are thrust together by forces beyond their control. And all the resentments and passion return with more intensity than ever.
Once again Houston is left with a choice between the truth and the only girl he's ever loved.

no one in this book has a healthy romantic relatonship. at some level each love is tragic. the main characters Rory and Houston have what could be an enviable love until you see how weak they were because of it. this story is well developed with great sex scenes. can't call them love scenes.
emotionally draining but impossible to put down. my heart hurt after reading this story, you love it and hate it all in the same breath. I wanted to hate these characters based on lack of morals but at the same time you can't help but feel for them, the deceit that surrounds them, and not even purposefully is wrenching to the core. great story but like I said...heavy.
This was one story that kept me glued to my iPhone. It was raw and emotional and even unimaginable (the letter). When reading a story like this, or in my case, listening to one, it's natural to root for love, believing that true love always wins. But sometimes things happen differently than we imagined. The only thing that I would have enjoyed more would have been if the female audio performer spoke all of Rory's parts and the male audio performer spoke all of Houston's parts. Even still, I definitely recommend this audiobook.
Love a good NA/YA and romance.. Run Books,Chocolate and Lipgloss book blog!!
Cassia is ranked up there with one of my go too authors. Love her stories whether they be alpha or HEA.. Except this book... Made me wanna just cry at the end... I hated the end! I wanted my HEA, I wanted the make up and kiss kinda story- I needed it after listening the awful turn of events with her BEst friend... But Cassia didn't do that.. She broke you down and teased you and left you with your mouth open wondering why she did what she did... I'm hoping book #2 bring the couple back together....
Brickshop audio has awesome narrators, and there is no exception to the two narrators on this story. Both narrators brought the story alive in emotion and character.
I tried to like the guy in tbis book but i just couldn't. i did like that the book had some good twists . not the traditional romance novel.
I would not call this book a waste of my time, but it was a struggle to listen to. I am happy that it was short.
It had potential, but over all it was a snoozer.
3.5 stars. This was a cute listen I quite enjoyed it. It was quick and fairly well written. The narrator did a great job making the listener a part of the story.
I liked Rory, she is a girl trying to find a place in the world after tragedy occurred 5 years ago. She grows a bunch as a character throughout the story. I however am not a large fan of Houston. I found him to be a jerk to say it politely. He's possessive in all the wrong ways.
I loved the time jumps between 5 years ago and current. Was definitely the best way to tell their story.
All and all worth the time and I will listen to the next one!
