The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized.
As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, but I was no saint.
Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.
𝐹𝑟𝑖𝑒𝑛𝑑𝑠. It’s all we can ever be.
After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesn’t need me.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches.
THIS ENDS IN A CLIFFHANGER. Yep. Shouty caps. Because this is a heck of an ending and, frankly, a heck of a book.
The flashback way of story telling worked really well, particularly against the content of the opening chapter. The characters were just so real, and the emotional responses so visceral, that there were points in this story, where I may have succumbed to a sniffle or two.
This has drama and tension in abundance. Now i have to wait until September to see what happens next. I’m on tenterhooks over here…
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
