Blurb
One heinous tragedy changed my entire family forever. 
That morning, my world crumbled. I lost my parents. 
Now, I live by certain rules.
Don’t let anyone know what goes on inside your head.
Stay away from crowds. 
Never fall in love.
  
Though, that was until her. She has me
questioning everything. 
It’s the haunted eyes. 
The sultry voice. 
The sweetness under her armor.
Everything about her captivates me. The surge of energy we
create with one touch has me searching for her, even when there’s also
something dark underneath her bright smile. 
Unable to resist the desire toward her, I break my rules
giving her all of me while expecting all of her.

 

Review

I had some mixed feelings about this book as I dove. Burgoa touches on several tricky topics such as mental health illness and abandonment. I feel she did a great job in researching about these so that the characters were believable in their experiences. The writing was done well and the story puts a vise on your heart. While I enjoyed the story and characters, I think I became so wrapped up in their pain that I sometimes lost the beauty of the story.

HOWEVER, all of those mixed feelings faded as I watched Willow and Hunter interact in a different way, navigating their emotions and layers. This was the best part for me when the fog began to lift. I guess I saw the book in two parts; pre-growth and post-growth. I have to believe it was intentional that Burgoa would structure the book in this way.

It’s a fairly quick read. If you find yourself feeling some of these same emotions, hold tight because the story only gets better as you read on.
