At first I was like...

And then I was like...

But I'm not surprised...Lisa De Jong has the uncanny ability to evoke every single emotion in her readers...this book is no exception.

Full review to come...


“I was almost there when I heard him yell my name. I didn’t turn around; I just kept going. I thought about everything I’d lost and everything I’d never have. I’d trusted my heart to him, and he left it in a million pieces. I said goodbye to my happily ever after.”

Lila is off to Chicago for a fresh start. Meeting a handsome businessman by the name of Stanley Pierce is a step in the right direction toward a possible career in her field, and staying at her friend’s place is her best option until she can find a good job, save up some money…meet her hot, brooding brother, Blake. Wait, what? No, that’s not in the plans!

But we all know what they say about plans…and Lila has no plans what so ever to get involved with Blake. Too bad her body and her mind don’t agree.

“In many ways, I’m starting to feel like Blake and I are similar. Not so much in personality, but how deep we bury ourselves in our secrets. And the feeling of being wrapped up in him is different than I ever could have imagined. It’s something I want, but I don’t. Having someone hold me again fills a hole I didn’t realize I had. I understand the idea of a rebound guy, and I’m not going to let myself go there, but this is just as good.”

This is one of those books where from the very first page, the first word, you are absolutely and completely sucked in. I couldn’t tear my eyes away for a second, other obligations be damned; I had to finish this book as soon as possible…I couldn’t stand not knowing what was going to happen! And then that ending—WTF!?!? I kept trying to flip the pages of my kindle, and I realized there aren’t any more pages!!!

I fell in love with Lila, Stanley, Mallory, Blake and even Charlie. I want more, and I cannot wait until the next installment of this book series. The feels...ALL the FEELS, they can’t be compared. It will break your heart, mend it, and break it all over again. Read it. Read. It. You won’t regret one single word.

“There are pieces of Blake I still don’t have, that is obvious, but I can’t shake this feeling. The way he kissed me. The way his hands traveled every inch of my skin…I thought it meant something, but it turns out, it was all lies unspoken.”
