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?
“I want you, Embry, all of you. I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t have you.”
The story is about Embry. The day she starts school to become a lawyer she literally bumps into this gorgeous blue-eyed stranger – Luke. Immediately the sparks fly. It takes one glance and she is lost to this man. This is a rare occurrence for her. She has been burnt badly in the past causing her to avoid relationships at all costs but with Luke she was willing to throw caution to the wind.
Luke was just as smittened as Embry was. Being the southern gentleman that he is, he tries to take things slow even when she wants to move things along faster. In that short time frame he knows that he cares for her enough to get to know her better before going further.
This is one of the many things that I adored about Luke. He also intelligent, romantic and playful, self sacrificing and becomes Embry’s protector when a situation arises where she needs one. Everything about them falls into place up until we find out that Luke has been holding out on Embry. He has a secret that is relationship shattering. While I can get the logic behind him holding this important information it was upsetting that he wasn’t honest with her from the beginning. They try to work things out and when they finally get past it, another heart breaking issue arises.
At that point I was very much disappointed with Luke. Just like Embry I loved him and I hated him, loved him again and hated him even more. They had this amazing relationship. They fit in every possible way. How could he mess up something so perfect? Totally upsetting, right? It however doesn’t end there. This story has a major “pull your hair out” cliffhanger.
Even so, I enjoyed this story. The varying emotions that the author was able to elicit from me was outrageous. This is very impressive from a debut author. I thought the writing was great, the flow was smooth and the tension…OMG…the tension was magnificent!
