Alex had everything when he was with Madison. But the darkness within him wouldn't go away.
After two years apart, he returns to Pelican Bluffs and to the girl he never wanted to leave. Madison wants to give their love another chance, but Alex can't fight fate.
He is what he is.
Ruined. Crazy like his mother. And Madison deserves so much more. When his secrets spill out into their small town, Alex has a choice to make. Hide away in the darkness forever, or let love in.
Engaging and enlightening
This is the sequel to Castles in the Sand told from Alex'a point of view two years later. This is not your typical her side/his side story. It is a deeply romantic book at its core, but along the way you get a glimpse into the lives of those who deal with mental illness, making choices, and doing the best with what you are given --and it is eye opening. I really enjoyed and appreciated the insights from this book.
