Secrets. Revenge. Love. The perfect combination that makes one amazing, engaging read.

All Jasmine Jennings wanted to do was to get out from her parent’s clutches and live her life the way she wanted to. She already had it with them running from her life, so on the day of her college graduation, and the time she can touch her grandfather’s trust fund. Together with her best friend Summer, they went to New York, started from scratch and finally enjoying freedom.

Then sexy, enigmatic, volatile Knox Mitchell came into her life. The attraction was present, it alarmed her – she tries to stay away from him, tries to avoid him. He was persistent, determined to have her. He will do anything, be everywhere with her. When she finally gave in, he started to avoid her.

Why? After all the trouble he has been through with her, after all the wooing, after all the efforts – why is he avoiding her?

It all goes down to the SECRET. It took one night and a drunk driver for Knox’s life to be broken. All he wanted to do was to take revenge on the person who was responsible for it all. But his plans took a huge turn when Jasmine came into his life. She was an unexpected surprise and it had him torn. Falling in love with her was not on his plans. The big question is, will he tell her or will he go on with his plans?

My curiosity was piqued right on the first few chapters. It went on and on and on, I have a few guesses, a few hunches, but I wasn’t really sure. Knox wasn’t giving in, he wasn’t spilling his secrets, or what was this all about, until finally in the few final chapters when everything fell apart. Secrets were spilled, the plan was out in the open and hearts were broken. Surprises were handed one after the other, secrets that you haven’t seen coming. Just as I was so sure it was the final twist, here comes another one.

I went all night reading this novel, I didn’t have the heart to put it down, the urge of finding out everything was too compelling, putting it down might make me miss the big revelation. Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading it – it’s sweet, steamy, and has a great storyline that makes this novel unputdownable.

"We’re finding us."

Later that night Knox takes me to bed. He helps me rid myself of clothes and I do the same to him. We climb into his bed and lie facing each other. Knox pulls me closer to him and puts my arms around his neck. I cradle him to my chest, content in this moment.

“I’m falling hard, Jas.” Knox says with so much emotion in his voice it makes me want to be a girly girl and cry.

My heartbeat picks up. I run my hand through his hair, comforting him. “Me too.”

“I’m still trying to find my way out of this nightmare I’ve been living in.” Knox sighs deeply.

“I’m still trying to find my way in life.” I place a finger under Knox’s chin and tilt his head up. What I see in his eyes is like a mirror of my own. “We’re both lost. We’re trying to find our way and we’re working on finding us.”

Knox’s breath hitches before he crashes his mouth to mine. “We’re finding us.”

I bite down on my bottom lip and Knox reaches up and releases it with his thumb before he kisses it. Something in this moment changes between us. We both admitted that we are finding us, finding our way to be with each other. This road is going to be bumpy as hell but it will be worth all the damage once we get to the other side. I hope.
