4 out of 5 stars
I got this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review...
I liked this book. I didn't love this book, but i liked it enough that i
am going to read the next 2 books. I have then sitting on my kindle
waiting to be read! I am glad that the ending of this book was not a
cliffhanger, i assumed because there was another book out that their
would be one so that is why it took me so long to read it.
was living a life that her mother made for her. She was supposed to
seduce, marry, and live happy ever after with a rich man. Now after
living her life this way for 21 years she was tired. All it took was for
her fiance to take her to a Chinese restaurant for her birthday. She
hates that kind of food, and he knew it. He was going on and on about
how that they were out celebrating his promotion not her birthday. She
was officially done. all she wanted to do was drink a beer and go
dancing. So, she did what any angry 21 year old woman would do. She
broke up with her fiance and went out with her girlfriend.
best friend was her total opposite. She has a baby and really no
direction in life. She wanted to go out with Christina and have a blast.
Little did Christina know that her friend had other plans. She had
enough when two druggies came to her friends car ready to party. Her
friend told Christina that they were going to have sex with them. Again
not going good on her birthday so as she was going to go home her car
broke down and she was in a bad neighborhood. She was just starting to
hate her life when she went into a gas station to wait for her friend to
come get her.
she then saw the hottest guy alive. she couldn't
help feeling like a total school girl and was going to throw away all
her rules just for this guy. His name was Andre. She was smitten by him.
He told her that he is going to look at her friends car and then meet
her at the dance club. They hit it off great. To the point where she
went home with him.
now Christina had to deal with her mother and
tell her that she broke up with her fiance. Her mother didn't like this
and she told her if she wanted to live under her roof that she better
make things right. Meanwhile she was watching her best friend's child
because she never came back to get him from her mothers. She knew her
friend was back on drugs. She had to do something. that kids deserved
better than that. Now she decided she was going to confront her best
friend for the sake of the child. That didn't go as planned. Now a hard
core scary drug lord knows where she lives and was in the middle of her
fighting with her best friend.
after leaving right away on Andre
he was starting to get mixed feelings about Christina but she was the
only one that could sleep with him without having any nightmares. He
knew she was special. Andre had some secrets of his own and didn't want
Christina to know that he was broken. Christina has secrets of her own
that haunt her everyday. Well, after Christina shows Andre her painting
she finds herself working for his uncle and making more than enough
money to move out of her mothers house. She was going to finally be
that was until her secrets come out and she has to face
them head on, on top of that Andre also has to deal with his past and
they have to come together to get over it. Meanwhile her best friends
lets the cat out of the bag over a secret that will leave their friend
possibly over forever..
can Christina get over her past and
finally fall in love, or will her mother finally make her go back to the
life style that she was supposed to be.. Can Andre recover from a
lifetime of guilt and finally get himself a girlfriend, or will he
finally do what he said he would never do.....
