She doesn’t believe in fate or happily ever-afters, but she still can have hope. She considers herself tainted, but will her biggest secret be forgivable?
Seth is Josie’s best friend and has been since they were little. What will friends do/sacrifice to comfort each other? What type of love do friends share?
Blake Porter, the one man that Josie allows into her heart and soul only to shatter it, but he also refuses to move on. Will his secret that he reveals be forgivable?
If you have ever read any of my reviews, you know that I usually like to start off with a summary and then explain what I did and didn't like about the book. So onto what I didn’t like about the book. I started out thinking ok what is going on? This story is jumping all over the place and I couldn’t figure out if I was in the past, or present, and if it was the past, what time frame of the past I was in. I then had to start again and go back and make sure I was paying closer attention to the time frame at the beginning of each chapter. Once I figured out how everything was falling into place, I totally understood for all the jumping around. There were times when spots of the past needed to be filled with history that had not been divulged yet.
I felt awful reliving Josie’s past and experiencing what she had to go through. She sought comfort in her best friend Seth when she needed him the most. But when her heart was broken, she found Blake. The one person that made her feel loved and appreciated. But what did he do? He broke her heart by hiding his secret from early on in their relationship. I never cared for Blake’s childhood friend Alice. Just think of her as the barrier of bad news.
This book had me mad, sad, and happy, and it also had its steamy moments. All the information you needed to get answers will be divulged in this book. All along in the book, I thought I had Josie’s secret figured out. I was so wrong. I never expected to hear what she divulged. Only to have an epilogue that will leave you with a major cliffhanger. It won’t make you mad that you haven’t gotten enough information, you will be mad because you will want to know what’s going to happen now?
Personally I want to trust Blake, but after all the heartache, he has put me through, I really want to be team Seth. You tell me who your pick is?
