Interesting characters and what seems to be a doomed relationship. Complications keep the story moving
Love hate sometimes make a match
The two most unlikely people to be together find that the past means nothing. Just the present and the future.
Loved the story of Colin and Hailey. They’ve known each other for years and Hailey played a horrible part in his brother’s history. Misunderstandings and fear make this love/hate relationship an interesting read.
