Riley thought she was in love. She thought she found the perfect guy until his aggressive behavior became too much to handle and she ran.
She withdrew from the world and attempted to heal her broken heart. She had the support of her best friend and family. Having Four brothers and a determined best friend you have no choice but to stand strong. They all helped her move forward. Over time Riley was able to open up once again. She had no idea that the one person she needed was right under her nose.
Riley was guarded and hesitant when it came to Bad boys…after all it was a Bad boy that shattered her once before.
Zander wants the girl from the party. He wants to be near her even though she continues to push him away. They both have secrets they have yet to share with one another and both find it easier to confide in others than with one another. Riley begins to realize Zander isn’t who she thought he was and falling for the sexy voiced Lead Singer/Guitar player may be just what she needs.
Overtime will they learn to trust and love or will they only destroy one another. They could be toxic to one another or they could heal the wounds that run deep within their souls.
I loved this book! It was powerful and intense!! I mean with the warning as the first thing in the description, I was going to read this book at some point! The writing was smooth and descriptive and completely sucked me in. Zander is in one sense a bad boy with a heart of gold, but he is NOT a pushover. His best friend is a girl…..What will she say about Zander being so far gone over a woman? Especially a woman who clearly has issues?
I’m pretty sure I was actually biting my fingernails during a few parts wondering if they could stick with it to dig out the truth! When the two first meet, Riley laughs at what she sees as a cheesy pick-up line. Zander is bombing with this girl because he is so blown away by just her presence. Riley feels the connection too, but is hesitant given her last relationship.
She steps outside and sees Zander dancing with and singing to a girl. She assumes he is a cheater because he hit on her when he clearly has a girlfriend! From there I was completely hooked and just about read the book straight through the night! This is definitely one you DON’T want to miss!!!
