Stalked by her abusive ex-fiancé, Rae Zachery retaliates by singing karaoke and spilling all their dirty secrets to the entire bar. When her ex attempts to silence her brazen performance, sexy, leather-clad Parker comes to her rescue and soundly punches her ex in the face. As valiant as that may be, Rae finds Parker’s violent assistance unsettling, yet she can’t help but be drawn to him and his tragic past.

Fighting her attraction for Parker is a battle Rae can’t win, and soon their night of sharing secrets morphs into an undeniable bond. But fate won’t so easily relinquish her grip on their happily-ever-after. Instead of blissfully skipping into obscurity, Rae and Parker are subjected to her ex-fiancé’s vicious proclivities. Who knew love could hurt so good?

My Thoughts:

This book was nothing like I expected when I picked it up, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

First of the cover is pretty but to me it screams Paranormal Young Adult, it does not represent the story at all. I would say change the cover on this it is to YA and the story is too good to be left out because of it.

This is also put in the New Adult genera that are so popular at the moment. I am not sure this fit in that genera, the people in it are that age girl 20 and boy a bit older. But they don’t really act like it, they act much older witch is normal after the experiences they have had so far. The only new adult feeling I had in this book was the first chapter. After that that feeling totally disappeared, and I am super happy that it did. This is not a teenage angsty book, but a book that is real, scary and has really seriously and awful problems.

Rae is a 20 year old girl trying hard to get her life back together after being in a 7 year long relationship with an abusive boy. She has real problems and the creep is still trying the get her back. Rea is a strong woman with a great back bone and she is pretty much done with being abused and used as a doormat. She meets Parker at a bar where she sings about her past relationship to get closure. They get instantly attracted to each other, And her the “fun” really start, as this really rubs her crazy X Ian the wrong way. I have to say I love Rea she has spunk and the best sarcasm ever, loved it.

The story is a scary story about abuse and the way to build your life back together with sweet love to help you along. This book should be on a list with need to read this so you know what guys to stay far away from.

I loved the writing style and could hardly put it down, reading in the car, in the grocery store while hubby pick out the food, in bed and in my garden. I still have laundry in my washer that needs to be hung but I have been too busy reading about Rae, Parker and Ian.
This is the sign of a really good book.
So I give it 5 stars.
