From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You and Be with Me comes a daring tale that pushes boundaries . . .
At 21, Calla hasn’t done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.
But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought shed left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.
Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from they moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn’t give them her mom.
Jennifer Armentrout never disappoints! whatever name she’s under she manages to do an outstanding job at writing a book you can sink into and with this book you certainly can! As always Jennifer manages to make it so you can’t put the book down, you are absorbed into it completely.
The main characters in this book are calla and the yummy Jackson James also known as ‘Jax’. The thing I love most about this series is that the heroines are never perfect there is always something going on in there lives which has scarred them emotionally or physically and Jennifer has written it perfectly portraying the feelings of them exactly. Another thing I like is that the characters never immediately see each other and jump all over themselves.There is a story-line that happens and it builds up their relationship gradually and I love watching it grow!.
Now onto the ‘hot guy brigade’ as Calla likes to call them, yes you get to see all the characters from previous books such as Avery and Cam and their perfect relationship and Teresa and Jase, even Ollie and Brit make an appearance in the book! yes everyone all that sexiness in one book and I think that’s a reason in itself to pick the book and read it.
Overall, this book is amazing and I recommended to anyone who loves a good romance book with a hell of a lot of sexiness!
“You know what else I see? A physical reminder of how fucking strong you are, Calla, how fucking brave you are. That’s what I see when I look at your back. A map of how brave you are, your strength and your courage.”
