Author: Roya Carmen
Genre: Romance Suspense
I was just a girl, a young neglected girl with issues. I was a mess. A mess he wanted nothing to do with. He knew better. But I certainly didn’t. All I knew was that I liked what I saw.
I grew up in small town Michigan, raised by a single alcoholic father and two older brothers who never gave me the time of day. All I had were my best friends, Izzie and Gavin, a reclusive broken man, ten years my senior. My father forbade me to see him, but I didn’t listen. I was crazy about him and he adored me. Even when our small community was rocked by a heinous crime and Gavin was the main suspect, I still loved him.
When tragedy struck, I finally escaped. As far away as I could.
I’ve been in Chicago ever since, trying to forget all about my past. Yet, I find myself still thinking about my past, about Gavin and Izzie, about my other life. I’m not truly living anymore, just going through the motions. Until…
Noah Reed. My new neighbor. Beautiful, sweet and intoxicating. There’s something about him I just can’t put my finger on. He’s the first man since Gavin I truly let myself fall for. I think he might be the one. Until…
… the day I discover his secret.

Omg…this story had my feelings tugged in so many different directions. I love this group of four friends and Abby’s story was so heartbreaking. I loved the parallel in the neighbors…the story from her past and her current life. The childhood memories were so vivid and pulled me into her life in the trailer park. This book is about coming to age, first loves, friendships that break and surviving soul crushing tragedy. So many secrets and twists with her new neighbor who runs hot and cold with her. I felt her confusion and hesitation. This book captivated me and I didn’t ever want to put it down. Such a fantastic series!
