Five years ago, Embry Jacobs ran...
She ran from a past that still hasn’t let her go, but her dream of becoming a lawyer is stronger than her fear of confronting that past. Embry’s sole focus is to get through law school—with the help of her best friend, Morgan—and make something of the broken girl she became. Not thinking about falling in love, being in a relationship or even entertaining the idea of romance, Embry is moving forward one day at a time.
Luke Brody is charming and sexy, and has a past of his own. He wants nothing more than to put his demons to rest and move on with his life. But, when Embry enters the picture, is he destined to repeat those same mistakes?
Blindsided by their instant attraction, neither Luke nor Embry are prepared for the feelings they’re developing. But will it all be for nothing?
Will they let their pasts destroy them, or will they risk everything to fight for their relationship when it all comes undone?
OHMYGOSH. You guys!!! I loved this book!!! LOVED-IT.
I am suffering from one of the biggest book hangovers right now! Ahhh!!!! Luke and Embry’s story captivated me from the very first page and held on tight all the way through the very end! Such a fantastic, angst-filled, and sexy read! I’m telling you right now, go one-click it!!!
Well, okay. About this book…
After a very intriguing prologue, chapter one officially introduced us to Embry. Still recovering emotionally from her past, Embry returned home to New York to start law school with her best friend, Morgan. They had the type of friendship that was really more like being sisters; to the extent that Morgan was the only person that knew why Embry left for Florida five years ago. Their banter throughout the book flowed naturally and was quite hilarious. I found myself giggling a lot while reading scenes where Morgan was present. Let’s just say, she brought humor to the story line...
During their orientation, Embry bumped into a very HOT, blue eyed man. Helloooooo, Luke Brody. Luckily for both of them, they kept running into each other during the different social activities. I mean, only so much time could pass until they gave into the inevitable. And trust me, them together was just that. Luke and Embry’s connection had been instant and their attraction was undeniable. So when that first kiss happened…. I maaaaay or may not have squealed. *wink* Prepare to swoon for Luke, ladies!
“I want to know you. I want to learn everything about you.” He brushed his knuckles across her cheek. “I want you, Embry, all of you. I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t have you.” - Luke
Everything was going perfectly. Things ran smoothly and were definitely HOT between them. Until…. BAM! Surprise!!!! One of Luke’s secrets came to light. After this little turn of events, everything changed and got complicated between them…to say the least. But thankfully, throughout the book, they basically worked around their little predicament. Their relationship got hotter, stronger, and even more swoon-worthy.
“You own me, Embry. I’m yours.”
It seemed that as long as they faced everything together, they came out stronger. And honestly, their relationship got put to the test several times. Embry’s past came crashing into her present, all while Luke was still hiding something…. Trust me, I felt antsy throughout most of the book!
Towards the end, I was flat out ANXIOUS!!!! And during that last chapter? HA! I literally felt as if I was holding my breath all the way until the very end. *Sigh* CLIFFHANGER ALERT!! Oh my!! Yes!!! This book ends in a cliffhanger in every sense of the word! All I can say is I neeeeeed the sequel...yesterday!! I am too curious for my own well being! Go buy this book!!! You need to meet Luke! Phenomenal debut!
