A STANDALONE second chance, enemies to lovers romance.
My dick never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…
We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.
Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.
She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.
This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…
This is my first book by this author, and I know it won’t be my last! If I hadn’t had to go back to school after my winter break, I would totally have read this in one day. It was so good that I could barely put it down. The characters were intense, especially Emmett. But he was intense in a sexy way for sure. But, I had to have an issue with him and how he dealt with what happened to cause the rift between him and Avery. I know that what happened really looked bad, but for Emmett to not even demand to know what was going on, even knowing what Avery’s life was like, and what kind of guy the drug guy was, I just don’t get that. Then again, I feel like Avery should totally have been more open with Emmett about some things, which would have led to less problems, maybe. But their connection was like fireworks, lots of explosions, and I loved how they finally got things worked out, well, finally, but the first time in the book. All the characters and their friends were also ones that were well-written, and I need to go back and read the first two books so that I can find out more about them. I also look forward to future books, especially the next one I think, about Ford and a certain little sister.
