Red is everywhere.
Not just red, blood.
Blood is everywhere.
It is all over me.
Cassie Whitlock has relived that day countless times in her dreams for the past four years. It left more than just physical scars, it has caused her to close herself off to everyone. She no longer believes in love. Love only ends in pain.
That's why when she meets Luca, she is surprised by the immediate and undeniable attraction between them. She doesn't want complicated and she knows he's about to make everything complicated. As their lives become more intertwined, it becomes harder to hide her secrets, and harder to resist him, but when she discovers he has secrets of his own, she begins to question everything. Cassie has to make a choice: hold on to the ghosts of her past or be brave enough to imagine a future.
I enjoyed reading this book. I do wish that I'd read it a bit sooner, or a bit later then I did, because the pain from having my wisdom teeth removed, and everything that came with that, effected my reading experience. Didn't effect how much I enjoyed the book, though!
I really enjoyed Cassie and Luca together. They both have their secrets, they both have something by this relationship-but they both have something to gain, and that gain is what triumphed in the end, which was really great!
Yes, their secrets were pretty hard to bear. Who would want to go through things that hurt, even if in the end, it leads to one of the best things in your life? For her, the attack. For him, the lost love. Either way, pain. But then they got each other!
Really fantastic ending, it was rocky there for a bit, but they made it through it, together, once they realized (well, she realized) that they were better together than apart! Really nice to read, and I enjoyed that so much!
Such a fantastic book, and able to read as a stand alone (since I haven't read the first book) and yeah, I enjoyed it a lot!
