I got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review..
book was good. I felt it would be on my excellent standards if parts of
the first book didn't repeat in this book.. When i would get really
interested i would read parts from the first book and felt like i was
just skipping thru some of the book..
this book follows Eric
and Lena. Eric had a horrible child hood. His mother was abused by her
husband. Eric was little and couldn't stop it. One day he tried with all
his might, and almost died himself. His father would place burns on all
over his body. One night his father had ended up killing is mother.
now lives day to day reliving the event. to make matters worse his
girlfriend also died at the hands of an abusive ex boyfriend. From all
this happening in his life he cannot have a relationship. he has a
different girl in his bed every night, and doesn't bother to have them
sleep over or even remember their name. He volunteers at the abusive
shelter because he likes to give back. He talks to the founder because
she is like a mother to him. He finds a little boy and was going thru
the same thing that he did as a child. He felt like it was his duty to
help this little boy. He was thinking about his dark ways, That was
until he meets Lena..
Lena also had a troubled childhood. Her
father left their family when she was little. Her mother was a single
mother trying hard to make ends meet. She ended up becoming a
prostitute. Now Lena was a senior in high school and she gets bullied
really bad because of what her mother does. She can't go down the hall
without someone calling her a whore. A popular guy finds her interesting
and starts to talk to her. Lena found him attractive. They spent almost
every night together. She told him that she was a virgin. When school
would come back his friends would make fun of Lena. He wouldn't stick up
for her. She called it quits. he started to sweet talk her again, so
she gave him another shot. She decided that she was going to give
herself to him. Once she did everything will change.. her now boyfriend
told her she had a dinner party to go to and couldn't hang out. Her best
friend told her that she saw him at prom. She confronted him the next
day at school and he didn't know what to say. His friends where making
fun of her and her boyfriend threw $50 at her. That totally broke her.
She would never be the same.
So Lena and Eric meet at a work
band event. They both knew they had sparks, but wouldn't act on it. They
both told each other that they do not date, and after they have sex
they do not do it a second time. They both will use each other to fight
their old daemons. They will also figure out that they have a lot of
sexual tension, and that they both could possibly be in love with each
