Stone Reeves was my neighbor, and I’ve hated him since sixth grade.
Gorgeous and charismatic, he became the town’s football god, while I became the town’s invisible girl.
He went to a Division 1 school for football, while my father was fired by his father.
His team won the National Championship, while my mother died the same day.
He was a first round pick for the NFL ...
… while I made the worst decision in my life.
Now I’m in Texas trying to pick up the pieces of my life.
But, Stone is here.
Stone is everywhere.
It doesn’t matter that disaster has struck my life again.
It doesn’t matter that he’s the one trying to console me.
It doesn’t matter that he’s the nation’s newest football obsession.
Because for me, he always has been and always will be my enemy.
I always thought “enemies” was such a harsh word, especially in romance. This is what made me want to read the book even more. I wanted to know what was it that made the heroine Dusty hate Stone (h).
When I finally discover the reason – it was shocking. For someone so young to go through so much pain… I couldn’t help but empathize with Dusty. How Tijan described her pain felt so real. As I was getting further into the story, my heart was breaking more and more for her. She deserved love and happiness. And the way Stone saved her like a knight in shining armor, again and again, was a thing of beauty.
Needless to say, I was very impressed with the character development in this story. The book flow was fantastic. I love how these two took their time in figuring things out. Even the eventual relationship with the supporting characters was great.
If you are looking for a heartfelt, love story that is filled with passion, forgiveness, and acceptance then pick up this book.
