When Taylor was four years old, she became an orphan and her childhood spiraled into darkness. She spent years lying, hiding, and avoiding any love offered to her until she was old enough to run away from all the threats of her past.
Now twenty-two, Taylor doesn’t think she’s worth more than being the kind of girl a guy hooks up with in the back room of a bar after her band plays. She definitely isn’t the one you bring home to meet Mom and Dad.
An unlikely rescue puts her in Ethan’s sight. He’s her total opposite, though. Ethan is a sexy dork who sees beyond Taylor’s guarded exterior. He sees past the tattoos and piercings. He sees her.
But they both have secrets capable of destroying their relationship. And if Taylor’s past ever catches up with her, the consequences could be deadly.
Due to explicit language, sexual content, and dark themes, reader discretion is advised.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

**Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Sparkle Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review**

Taylor is not your normal girl.  She was an orphan at the age of four, after watching her mother be murdered.  She was separated from her twin by her own doing to protect the ones she loved.  Finally at 22 she feels she can start her own life and let her guard down.  She wants to fall in love and do something she loves, make music in the band she joined. She just wants to be happy. What will happen when she finds love but everything in her life hangs in the balance? Can she overcome her dark past? Can she confront her demons?

This book was incredible! The story line was the type of story line that kept your eyes focused on the page, not wanting to look anywhere else.  Several emotions were flowing through this book: happiness, sadness, anger, frustration, and love.  The heroine of the book has had a rough life. She is a strong woman in this book though and it’s always fun to read about strong heroines!

The detail that was written into this book was perfect.  It was easy to visualize the different scenes, bad and good, and to visualize the different characters.  There was enough detail that you maybe wished you didn’t picture certain parts.  That is a great written book in my opinion though. I couldn’t have asked for anything better on the detail part.

My only complaint was the suspense factor of this book.  I was hoping it was going to start at the beginning and end with the last page.  Unfortunately, the suspense really didn’t pick up until about 50-60% through the story and through the rest of the story.  The author did a great job writing the suspense part of the story and it kept you on the edge of your seat and threw curve balls at you.  I just wish it would have started sooner.

I would absolutely recommend this book. I do look forward to reading the next book in the series. This author writes a great book and definitely is one to follow!



I stepped backward as he came closer until my back hit the tiled wall. This was it. Whatever was about to happen would make Ethan and me definite. We’d be together, or all hope I had for the two of us would be gone.
Ethan sucked on his bottom lip, his eyes full of torment. “You wouldn’t talk to me.”
I swallowed. He had this way of making me think he could see all of me, every part I hid, every flaw I had, every dream I didn’t dare believe in, like he worshipped it because it was mine. “I screwed up.”
He shook his head as he stepped closer, took the net out of my hand, and placed it on the side of the pool. “No, you didn’t.”
He stood in front of me, staring into my eyes. I couldn’t look away. I didn’t want to look away. There was nothing but Ethan and me in the water with the vibrations of anticipation flowing through my veins, feeding an energy to my body so intense I could only stand frozen. His gaze shifted to my mouth, and I licked my lips.
“Taylor, I…I’m going to kiss you,” he said softly. “I want you to remember how good it feels. I need you to remember that before we talk.” His hands ran up and down my arms as his eyes bore into mine. “Okay?”
I did not need a reminder of how perfect everything in the world was when we kissed, but I sure as hell wasn’t going to argue. The ability to speak escaped me, but I nodded. He leaned toward me and my heart slammed in my chest as he brushed his fingers over my lips. “So beautiful,” he whispered, more to himself than me.
