Book Description:
Jessica Mackey is living a meticulously fabricated lie of necessity. She's left the secret tragedy of her past behind along with who she was and is forging ahead with a clean slate. Jess soon discovers that passion can't be left behind; her own and that of the one man that sees who she really is. Whose presence caresses her soul in a way that may breach the peaceful life Jess has made for herself.

Devin Castile sees a young woman that is the missing puzzle piece to his existence and who is also the victim to a heinous crime. Devin convinces himself that he can remain emotionally distant even while indulging his physical desire for her. When the lies that Jess has made crumble before their attraction and the truth is revealed, one of them might pay with their life... or their very being.

My Review...

Ok, I did like this story and there were parts that I thought were awesome and other parts that I found it was trying to hard.  I liked the suspense and drama of the story line and I did like the chemistry between Cas and Jess/Jewel.
This love story was kind of portrayed as one of those unhealthy love bonds like Travis and Pigeon from Beautiful Disaster but just didn't quite make it there.  It was close but there was just something missing for me to really believe the wrongness yet rightness of their relationship.

 With Jess she was hiding from her past but couldn't let go of her dreams.  She was also hiding for so long but realized she was missing something....relationships, connection and love.  At times I was so frustrated with her indecisiveness. I thought the choice was easy but hey whom am I to judge. :)

 Two good looking guys were after attentions and even though she was drawn to both the safety of one and the wrongness of another.  In the end you can't go wrong with Devon Castile being sex on a bad ass stick.

I loved the concept of the twisted love story and was surprised and kept on my toes until the end.

One question that I was left hanging with was: What happened to Brad? He seemed like an intricate part of the story but he just vanished mid story :(

 In the end the story had depth, passion, suspense, angst, friendship and love.

3.5 Rocky Thumbs Up!
