Blurb from Goodreads:Evie and Leo met in foster care as children and formed a bond of friendship. As they grew, their bond turned to love, and they vowed to make a life together when they turned 18 and were no longer a part of the system.
When Leo unexpectedly gets adopted as a teen and he moves to another city, he promises Evie that he will contact her as soon as he gets there and come back for her in a few short years. She never hears from him again.
Now eight years later, in spite of the odds, Evie has made a life for herself. She has a job. She has friends. She's content. Then a man shows up out of the blue, claiming that her long lost love, Leo, sent him to check up on her. The attraction between them is undeniable. But, should she trust this sexy stranger? Or is he keeping a secret about what his connection to Leo is really all about and why Leo disappeared all those years ago?
New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
“The thing about falling in love so that no matter where you are when it happens, you can’t help but to color those moments with beauty, even if you’re in a location of ugliness. He made what would have been a place of nightmares into a place to dream.”
This it the kind of book that has an intense plot, thought out and developed characters , some HOT sex and it's all put together with a neat little bow into a read that you just can't put down until you read the last page. This book grabs your heart and doesn't give it back until the last line on the last page.
So let's start with Evie she is a caring, sweet and hardworking girl. She makes the best of what she has and doesn't mope about her life. It was so amazing to see her just appreciate what she has and not complain about what she doesn't. This girl suffered so much yet she still manages to see the best in people and be a ray of sunshine. I just loved her.
Need I say more? Well yes I do actually. At first I wasn't sure I would like Jake he came on a little strong and Evie is just so innocent I would have strangled Jake if he broke her heart, but the more I read the more I fell in love with Jake. You could see his little cracks and flaws and you knew he was hiding something( Lauren I'm looking at you) but his vulnerability made his so lovable and his treatment of Evie he is such a perfect gentleman and he cares for her so much.
I knew the huge plot twist that was coming but that doesn't even matter because most of the tension was in waiting for Evie to figure it out and see what she's going to do about it.
Now I am done talking and you need to be done reading this is a definite must read for those who appreciate a good romance.
OHHH and the flashbacks!!!! Be still me heart
