Now she lives with him and he guards a secret that he promises to keep…even though that secret is destroying his life. When Cassandra comes into town, her smile and compassion evident, Blaise wants her, and not just in a physical way. Unable to keep his distance, he falls for her, not knowing how long he can keep his secret…
This book was a bit slow for me and some eye rolling moments. I hate giving less than stellar reviews but sadly this could only get a 3/ 2.5 stars.
*** ARC WAS GIVEN FOR HONEST REVIEW***
This book was not one of my favorites it was okay. It started off a little slow where you were trying to figure out what Alexandra’s little secret was and if she will get over the fear. She decided to leave New York and go live with her aunt and start a new life where she met annoying friends for my taste and a hot guy. The moment Blaise and Alexandra met was like intent love for them. They did not show it at first but both where craving each other and both was keeping secrets from each other.
There relationship involves fast and slow and I wanted to kill Blaise every time he lied to Alexandra I mean this secret is huge. He has a girl living with him and they dated each other, the rest of the town still thinks they dating and thats how he should keep it. Anyway, this all comes to a head and much to their mutual devastation. They break-up. No-one knows the truth in why he has to stay by his girlfriend and they have to keep it that way. The book ends with a cliff hanger – and despite my constant eye-rolling and sighing throughout… I want to see what will happen next.
