Some secrets are too savage to be spoken…
When I walked into the bar across from the hospital, all I wanted was a drink to help me forget the worst day of my life. What I got was sexy, mysterious Jake Maxwell and the most amazing one-night stand of my life.
Months later, we get a second chance when he seeks me out with an unconventional offer: He’d like to take me and my dog for a walk.
My lazy dog could use the exercise, and I could use something to distract me from the pain of my sister’s death. Jake’s bad puns, gorgeous smile, and protective nature turn out to be the perfect medicine for my injured soul.
But just like the day we met, that one date turns into so much more. And as Jake and I grow closer, it becomes difficult to separate his pain from my own.
All I want is to share the burden of his secret. But some secrets are too savage to be spoken.

Heartfelt, unique romance and journey!
I knew from the beginning of this book that it would keep me wondering and guessing. I knew it would be emotional. -And it was! Collette and Jake are extremely likable characters. They both stole my heart in different ways. At times I knew that I was missing pieces of the story, so I wasn’t sure how to feel or what to prepare myself for. It made for an interesting reading experience, I really loved it! It’s more than a romance. It’s more than a story about someone’s worst day. It’s more than pain and secrets. I loved the journey this story took me on. I loved the wisdom through the pain. I loved the romance, playfulness and the steam. I loved the deep emotions it evoked from the characters and from me! It’s so well written, I love this story and the characters! This is a story that will stay with me.
Loved it!! 5 Stars
I received this standalone book as a free ARC in exchange for my honest opinion. I absolutely loved this story. I have been reading this author’s work for a few years and the way she delves into the characters and storylines makes this another unputdownable book!! I was captivated by the first chapter, loved the main characters and it has a HEA!! The awesome writing was in Cassia Leo’s style of lovable characters and believable situations, all well written. I loved Coco and Jake, his selfless kindness and hotness can easily make him your next book boyfriend. Coco was a great character, I loved her from the start, she was able to acknowledge her sadness and happiness which made her realistic to me. I was happy with the ending, and with the hot scenes. Definitely a favorite of mine that I recommend reading so you too can get lost in this sweet story.
