Saying “I love you'' doesn’t erase the old scars and fears.

"I love you to insanity. I'm not even sure if it's a good thing.'' — Duke

Skye is trying to overcome what happened with Sean. Now that she’s slowly healing, both physically and mentally, she’s determined to do something she should have done sooner.

She’s meeting twice a week with a new, very young therapist, Dr. Marshall.
There, she’s able to talk freely, unwind, and question things. Most of the sessions she talks about herself and her hang-ups, along with her relationship with Duke, which is still on rocky ground.

"I want to taste his sweat. I want to hear his groans. I want to feel him inside of me.'' — Skye

But while Skye is slowly getting back on her feet, Duke feels like he's drowning. He’s afraid of pushing her too much, of initiating intimacy, and it’s weighing between them. Moreover, knowing that he's not the one she’s talking to anymore is making him feel things he never thought possible.

"It’s a matter of when I’ll stop fighting." — Duke

As days pass, Duke is showing over and over how vulnerable he truly is and how Skye has more power over him than she ever imagined.

When Skye sees how they keep hurting each other, she’s determined to do everything in her power to make things right, no matter what the cost.

But one thing is still sure; she can count on Duke whenever she needs him, even if they disagree and fight. When Duke loves, he loves with everything he’s made of, the good and the bad.

"Loving her is confusing, making me afraid of myself and what I can do ... because I can break us both." — Duke

Wow this book picks up right after the shock ending of book 1, and you are straight into the story again. I did enjoy this book more than the first, i think it is because i felt like i was more established with the characters. Duke and Skye begin i feel to connect more and their relationship therefore grows. Skye becomes more strong and confident, though it takes some work from Skye to do this. But i liked that growth she underwent. This book is emotionally challenging and i loved that, i like a good deal of angst and drama in my new adult books and this second book certainly packed it in.You do have to read book 1 to understand book 2, but i feel the story was better in book 2 due to the journey we all go on with the characters through the two books. I do also think i have a soft spot for Duke even though at times through both books i do want to clunk him round the head. I did have a soft spot for him and the softer side we saw to him occasionally and to Skye especially.

Skye followed her long time boyfriend to Seattle for their first year of college, but he dumped her after only a week. The relationship brought only pain and destruction in Skye's life, and yet, she can't bring herself to open up and live her life.

"What if I am already broken into pieces?"

She hates to be touched, hiding under her oversized shirts and behind her wild frizzy hair. Even her bubbly roommate can't reach her. And yet ...

"I'm the guy who knows how you can hurt so much that your insides feel like they're cut and bleeding."

The tall, handsome, and tattooed TA in her psychology class changes everything when he literally collides with her and confronts her. For the first time in a long time, she wants to try and open up to this guy whose dark, intense eyes can't hide his own pain despite his dazzling smile getting to her.

However, just when she's starting to live again, her ex-boyfriend comes back, breaking her time and time again, making it all the more complicated.

She wants to fight for herself and for this building thing with the TA, even when he pushes her away, but can two broken people patch each other up?

"I never thought colliding with someone could change lives, but it is possible."

* Due to some shocking scenes, this novel is for readers of 18 and up

I enjoyed this book , i just found it hard to connect to the character of Skye at times. I loved all the new adult angst, and emotions flying all over the place. The book is not all roses, do not think that there are darker undertones, things do not always go to plan for the characters. They most certainly have what i would call a love hate relationship going on, one minute they want each  other and the next they cannot stand each other. The ending to the book was quite omg, and i will love to see where the story can go from there. I believe this is the authors first novel, and it is an accomplishment, it has plenty of plot and strong characters. It was an enjoyable read, and i straight away started book two Which means that i enjoyed it enough to continue the story without taking a break from the writing style or author which always a sign if a good read.

His secrets will destroy her.

Taken.
Humiliated.
Used.
With his smart mouth, dirty talking and possessive behavior, Sebastian Brand has me hooked in the most shameless way. I’m obsessed with him. However, now that I’ve escaped the mental hospital, he seeks to control my every move.

Keeping me away was his first instinct.
Capturing me was his second.
Claimed by a man with the exterior of an angel and the mind of a brute, I will do anything to unveil his secrets and face my own demons.
A body in exchange for freedom. A heart in exchange for truth.
Life is never a given. Only a certain death.

:::::AUTHOR BIO:::::
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on facebook where i love interacting with my readers.
