"A perfect dark cowboy romance. I loved Jake's dominance and pure love for Conor. I loved the estate and ranch. I loved the swoony sexiness. 5 Stars." ~ Pepper Winters, New York Times Bestselling Author
I try to forget her.
Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first...
Not all our firsts.
We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I'll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.
Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn't know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.
I don't deserve her, but one truth remains.
This story has crime, revenge, love, commitment, true feelings of whole families broken apart then coming back together for those that survive.
Couldn’t get past the scene of her being raped in the first chapter.. actually didn’t even manage to finish that part, but it had me emotionally scarred for days trying to forget it. Never had a rape scene in a book affect me so negatively but I couldn’t handle it and wanted to warn others since I wasn’t.
This book is a tough read. If you have triggers, beware. It was graphic. However. Once Jake explains his plan, he helps her in so many ways.
