Violet Moore is in love with a man who hates her.
Well, to be fair, she kinda deserves it.
On her eighteenth birthday, she got drunk and threw herself at him, causing a huge scandal in their sleepy suburban town.
Now everyone thinks she's a slut and he has disappeared. Rumor has it that he's been living up in the mountains of Colorado, all alone and in isolation.
But Violet is going to make it right.
She's going to find him and bring him back.
No matter how cruel and mean he is, how much he hurts her with his cold-hearted and abrasive ways, she won't give up.
And neither will she think about his tempting lips or his sculpted muscles or his strong hands. The hands that she wants on her body, touching her, feeling her skin…
The hands that make her want to forget everything and kiss Graham Edwards – Mr. Edwards, actually – again.
Because you don't go around kissing your best friend's dad, do you?
Even though that's all you ever dream about.
NOTE: A STANDALONE novel set in the world of Heartstone.
Loved every single page!!
Well done Saffron A. Kent this book was everything that I was expecting. I wanted to get the story from this shy girl named Violet who we first met in the book "Medicine Man" when she was with Willow and the rest of the girls at Heartstone Mental Hospital. Violet was this shy girl who though she was invisible to the world, who never tough people understand her, who never felt loved by her family. Everything change for her on her sixteen birthday when she saw for the first time her strawberry man (aka Mr. Edwards, aka the beast, aka her forbidden crush). She found a best friend in Mr. Edward's son and she didn't feel that lonely anymore. But two years later she makes a mistake that costed Mr. Edwards everything making him leave. Saffron always bring us the best taboo stories and this forbidden romance between Mr. Edwards and Violet (aka jailbait, aka princess but prefers Diva)its not different. My hearth really goes for Mr. Edwards because he wants to denied the attraction that he feels for Violet, he tries so hard that he becomes this monster, this ugly soul that its waisting his life away, that in reality blames himself for everything that happened. 9but of this Violet has no idea). So there is a lot of angst , lots of moments where I felt so many emotions but at the same time Saffron always makes me understand a little better how people with mental illnesses go through life. Violet and Graham become alive and visible to each other, their connection its undeniable don't matter the age gap difference , no matter what society thinks of them because really who are we to judge? . “First of all, age is just a number. You're not what your age is. You are what you've gone through. Mark Twain said that age is just mind over matter."
5 stars and 2 thumbs up for Dreams of 18!!
I fell in love with this book!! I loved Violet and Graham! Saffron did a great job with these characters. I have to remember that these are actual fictional characters! I really loved the depth and detail given with Violets’ struggle with anxiety. Saffron knocked out another one. She is unstoppable and an exceptional author. I have enjoyed every book she has written!! #1 author!
