I had no idea how much I would love Alex the day he walked into my life.
He changed everything.
The way I breathed.
The way I thought.
The way I loved.
He brought me back to life.
He gave me strength and a safe place to land.
And then he broke me.
Finding Emilia was a chance to do something good for once in my life.
I wanted to change.
She believed I was her savior.
I ached to be.
She found her way into my heart and claimed it as her safe place.
I should be telling her the truth about me…instead I break her with lies.
This book! WHOA.
I don't know what I was expecting but this, this wasn't it.
Right form the get go I was pulled into this world....a world of hurt and confusion.
I was crying by 3%! I couldn't believe it. I mean what in the ever living heck. I wasn't sure if my heart could take more heartache...yes after 3%. I managed to get myself together and forge on through. OMG!
Ummmm yeah it didn't seem as though Emilia could catch a break and I wasn't too happy about that. AND THEN...
Enter Alex! I wasn't too sure how this was going to work. He turned out to be just what I need.
I mean what Emilia needs.
Has his shit together.
Oh did I mention sexy? Yeah he is.
Emilia had so much going on in the beginning and I seriously wanted to cry with and for her. As the story goes on I appreciated the way Alex was with her. I loved that she wasn't a pushover. She had things she wanted to accomplish and she did.
Then Sam comes along and I was like...
This guy just No! There was something I didn't like. I was rooting for Alex sexy, caring, sexy ALEX not Sam. Who was this guy and why was he trying so hard to get up on Emilia!! ahhh slowly I started putting the puzzle together but then the ending came and...
WHAT IN THE EVER LIVING FUCK WAS THAT???? WHAT!!!!
I can't even breathe...WTF was that? Whaaaa...buuuuttt....noooooo!!!
I needed time to get my thoughts together because seriously Rebecca Shea through me for a huge loop and I was non too happy. How could she do this to me? How could she hurt me? All the feels! (sniffle sniffle)
Once again Rebecca has proven to me why I continue to read her books again and again. This tale is woven together and tangled with lies and deceit. By the end I had no clue which way was up. Am I upset HELL NO. I love books that give me these emotions it just goes to show how emotionally invested I am in these characters and story. Alex and Emilia are now characters that reside in my heart. Sam not so much and I still can't believe that guy ugh ugh ugh.
Overall this book had me hooked from page 1. I am in awe of Rebecca and how far her writing has come. I have followed her since her first book and I haven't been disappointed once. This story is a bit more gritty and raw but she made it flow seamlessly. I was thrust into a lonely girl's world that got better and brighter as her days went on with Alex. I can not wait for book 2!!
