Loved this book I just completely fell in love with the characters in this story the way they were written was amazing and the story line OMG… the amount of tissues I used when I first started reading this story. The characters are well developed and the secondary characters just make up the rest of the story.
Avery Poindexter Grew up in a family that would put Cinderella’s to shame, Avery watched as her sister withstood years of abuse while she was sidelined to the staff quarters unable to fight for her own.
However, she had a plan…
On her eighteenth birthday, she went to her mean and abusive grandmother, with the signed paperwork in hand Avery and her sister made their escape and never looked back, but Avery should have guessed that her change in luck was too good to be true.
After much heartache she decides she needs a change.
So she jumps at the chance to move to Carson, North Carolina. As Avery adjusts to a new beginning and a new life, she’s thrown a curve ball she wasn’t expecting Logan a man that has his own secrets and demons shrouded in the darkness of his past. He also happens to be one of her bosses and Avery finds herself drawn to him in a way she never anticipated, torn between wanting to wrap him in her arms and push him away in hopes to save his life.
She never expected to take another chance at love…actually, she had planned on remaining invisible for the rest of her life.
Logan grew up in a trailer park, he was a punching bag to his dad’s vicious temper, and he made a vow to make something of himself. Determination and scholarships got him through medical school; women got him through lonely nights.
After all that he has been through he doesn’t trust women. Period. They play on your emotional vulnerability and use you if they can. They chew you up and spit you out. He should know; his family has a long history of lying, cheating, manipulating, and leaving women.
Can they overcome their pasts and the demons they fight? Or will they be able to open up to each other and let their walls down? I guess you will have to read this awesome book…
