“I walked away from him… but I left my heart behind.”
At eighteen, Lux shatters Sebastian’s heart – and breaks her own in the process.
When their paths cross again unexpectedly in New York City, Lux does her best to feign indifference toward her first love. But the harder she tries to hold Sebastian at arm’s length, the more determined he becomes to uncover the secrets she’s been keeping about their past… and the true reason she broke his heart seven years earlier.
She’s as much in love with him as ever; he’s just as furious at her for leaving. But beneath the anger, forbidden attraction still simmers… and it’s only a matter of time before it boils over.
When the past is finally unearthed, the monsters Lux spent seven years running from will finally catch up to her. And nothing – not even her love for Sebastian – will be enough to save her…

Problematic male lead
This started ok, but I was put off when the romantic lead got violent with the main character and we were supposed to still root for him? if you’re in to that kind of thing, you’ll like it, I guess. Stopped reading at 40% in.
If you’re looking for a book that involves a strong female lead, love, passion and sadness then look no further. This has to be one of the greatest books I have read in a long time, it’s refreshingly realistic about the reality of life in that not everyone has a happy ending.
Thank you for making such an amazing story, it’s truly left a mark on me.
Loved this ... the characters keep you reading.
I chose this book for an easy read wanting a book I could easily put down and not stay up until all hours of the night (and be exhausted for work). I wasn't expecting anything great...How wrong was I!! As a reader I really connected with the story and the characters; fell in love with Lux. It didn't get monotonous, cheesy, soppy, overly sexed, too predictable, immature ... it was lighthearted, fun and adventurous. just perfect. There was even tears shed. Thank you Julie Johnson.
