Aside from her dad, who passed away when she was six, Cassidy Jameson has only ever trusted one man: her best friend, Tyler. So of course she follows him to Texas when he leaves for college. She just didn't expect to be so drawn to their new roommate, Gage, a gorgeous guy with a husky Southern drawl. The only problem? He's Tyler's cousin.
Gage Carson was excited to share an apartment off campus with his cousin. He didn't mind that Tyler was bringing the mysterious friend he'd heard about since they were kids . . . until the most beautiful girl he's ever seen jumps out of his cousin's Jeep. There's something about Cassi that makes Gage want to give her everything. Too bad Tyler has warned him that she's strictly off-limits.
Despite everything keeping them apart, Cassi and Gage dance dangerously close to the touch they've both been craving. But when disaster sends her running into Tyler's arms, Cassi will have to decide whether to face the demons of her past . . . or to burn her chance at a future with Gage.
falling in love all over again
I’m loved this novel. I felt every emotion from pain to happiest of Cassidy and Gage. I could stop reading it. The book drew me in on levels that I can’t explain. I never experienced anything like Cassidy childhood; but its like I felt every blow, panic attack and all her uncertainty. Oh my gosh; I felt Gage’s broken heart every time. It was his words of loving and not having Cassidy that actually made me cry. Simply written, but words jumped off the page right into me.
What took me so long to get to this story?! I love Molly's work she is an amazing author and this did not disappoint. This story was truly great it had so much going on but at the same time it had everything I as a reader needed to fill in the story and make me feel like I was part of it. Cassi's life growing up was heartbreaking living with a beyond abusive mother and step father. The beginning of the story is heartbreaking enough then you find out just how Jeff "rewarded" her mother after abusing Cassidy and let me tell you it is so unimaginable and disgusting I never would of thought it, or thought a mother could even do that to her Daughter. You meet Ty from the very beginning and you think he's the sweetest and practically Cassidy's hero then you meet Gage and see the situation from his perspective and you see just how wrong Ty is and get mad at him for not going to the proper authorities all those years ago. I do believe in love at first site and Gage new as soon as he saw Cassidy that she was it for him. The story progresses and they go through ups and downs but true love always finds its way back. I will say I loved the twist with Detective Green. I will say I wish more would of happened with that situation :) but Molly knows best and the story ended up being perfect. I enjoyed reading the letter from Cassidy's mother it really added to the story. Despite all that she put Cassidy through it did make my heart hurt just a little bit for her Mother. I knew as soon as Cassidy started reading the letter her mom had done what she did on purpose. It's sad Cassidy had no clue her Mom had been sober for 3 months but I think how everything happened was best for Cassidy. I am thankful she had Conner to help her work through that time and she was able to not feel bad about not knowing her mom was sober and that what her Mother did was what she had to do for herself.
Can't stop reading!
Mollys books just keep you glued to the pages, started reading and didn't want to stop needed to know what was going to happen next. Love this one!
