Bray and Zain were both very lovable characters. Brayleigh's backstory was very shocking to me, how her past really had effected her. I do wish there was more story depth to Sebastian and maybe even Theo. The love felt real, and well described. Zain's parents seemed like the perfect feel-good parent characters. Victoria Anders seems to shock me with the plot in every book, taking turns I wasn't expecting and i've always loved it. Incredible writing as always. I predict Sebastian's side is going ...more

The story of Brayleigh is so heartbreaking and emotional that I leave marks of tears on my Kindle. Despite the fact that her life is so difficult I loved her power she possessed to move forward. I love how supportive Zain is to Bray when her world falls apart. Outstanding story with affecting and sensitive problems and an amazing conclude for Bray and Zayn. Totally recommend it. I'm waiting for Sebastian story.

The first thing I need to mention are the triggers and super sensitive subjects that are weaved throughout this book. While these topics might be a turn off for some, I have to say that things were handled extremely well and kept me holding on until the last page. My poor fragile heart broke for Brayleigh and the situations she had to endure as a child and then into early adulthood. During the entire story Brayleigh remained a strong and resilient warrior while I had goosebumps all over and ...more

This compelling story will have your emotions all over the place. Brayleigh is a strong young lady who will pull at your heart for all she went through as a child and young adult. The story has some triggers that can be disturbing for some but over all is a remarkable one that will have you discussing long after you put this one down. I loved how the story was written and the depth of the characters.

This is a well written book with strong characters and an emotional story line. The authors do a great job developing the story and pulling you in with all the emotions , happy and sad , flowing throughout. There are strong triggers dealing with some touchy subjects but are dealt with beautifully. It's a very touching story that captured and held me from start to finish. Highly recommend reading.

This was an amazing book. The author told a story of something that happens behind closed doors. It had humor, sadness, and faith in it. I cried at times for this girl and I laughed with her as well.

Brayleigh has a hard life before and while in foster care. Being abused to keep others safe became a norm for her. Now she was pregnant by her foster father and homeless. She had always had a secret crush on her best friend Zain. Zain fell for Bray the first three me he saw her but he was taken. Now he was free. But life was full of surprises. Could they make this tragedy work out? Could Zain convince Bray that he truly loved her?

When I started, I wasn’t completely sure what sort of book I was getting into. It has some dark subjects, but it was dealt with well, and I really enjoyed the book. I liked how the characters seemed authentic, and I was really able to connect with them.

This is the 1st book I've read written by Victoria Anders; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

This was a wonderful book. It didn't seem rushed. This was sweet and steamy, full of romance and passion with great characters that were interesting enough to draw you in.

A young passionate romance

A passionate romance with undertones of abuse.
What starts as a basketball match and teenage angst quickly turns into abuse for Brayelan, a foster kid turned 18 and trying to find her way.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed the majority of the book, including the quirky writing style, I couldn’t manage to get past the sexual abuse that came and went throughout as the story unfolded.
Lifelong friends turn on one another, an unwilling teenager becomes pregnant, and eventually
