Secrets are meant to be kept, but sometimes those unspoken words can become toxic - destroying you and the ones you love.
Seventeen year old Courtney Peterson always thought her future would consist of marrying her high-school sweetheart, becoming a stay-at-home mom, and living a happily ever after. All that changes when she finds out the boy who stole her heart three years ago resorts to cheating. Ending that relationship will be harder than she could imagine, but she is determined to move on, agreeing to go on a blind date with the older and cryptic Jaxon.
Jaxon Vaughn blazes into town for a short visit, taking steps down a new path in life. After facing unexpected tragedies at a young age and turning to self-destruction, he aches to redeem himself by opening a bar in his grandmother’s hometown. It is there he meets the pure and soulful Courtney, whom awakens the guilt that dejectedly haunts him.
Distance and circumstances may separate them, but they are unable to ignore the chemistry that draws them together. Can their relationship survive, or will it be shattered by clingy exes, mysterious phantoms from the past and unforeseen misfortunes?
I absolutely loved this book! It most definitely kept me hanging! I am not a big book reader and I could not put this on down! I wanted to continuing reading to find out what happens next! I definitely recommend it to anyone!
Characters with not much to like about them, low thinking abilities, no apparent reasoning abilities, and unable to identify clear abuse patterns and self destructive behavior, along with needed proof reading. Will not be reading from this author again.
