From the acclaimed bestselling author of Lost to You and When We Collide comes a New Adult novel of one woman’s obsession: a man who’s as passionate as he is elusive—and as tempting as he is trouble…
Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It’s been six years since she’s seen her brother’s best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it’s time to move on. Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance…
Just when she opens her heart to her friend, Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can’t resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he’s begging to be saved from his demons—the memories of the day he destroyed his family. As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly’s judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction?
Tortue, too predictable, same story as the ones written before
I'm starting to see a pattern in her stories. The women are strong and hold the men together. The women are the reason the guys believe in love. The guys hold all the pain and are damaged and the women rescue them and heal them. The women get pregnant and the guy freaks out and leaves. Too much time passes and then reality sets in and the guy realizes his mistakes and wants to correct it after being gone. The women are innocent while the guys consume themselves in alcohol, drugs, and women. Why do guys need to drown themselves this way? It would be nice to read a story where time was not the issue, too many women were not the issue, and pregnancy was not a factor. I enjoy finding love come out of a broken man, but it's too cliche. Not all good stories come from a damage man. True everybody has faults and seek comfort in another persons faults and sometimes this is what draws people together, but a new story line would be refreshing. Too predictable.
I could not put this book
down for the life of me. My review will do this book no justice!
But the pain that you know is seeping from Jared can be felt reading this book!
It's a must read
Love AL Jackson!
Another well-written book by Jackson. You fall in love with the characters and really feel Jared's pain. It is a little long winded in some places and I found myself just skimming. With that said, I still enjoyed reading it and look forward to the continued story this summer.
