She’s trying to move on, but the past won’t let her go.

I fell in love once.

It was a big mistake, but the biggest mistake of all was staying with him.

He pushed me around. He cheated and treated me like trash.

I don’t feel sorry for myself, because I let him.

But no more.

I moved out. I'm saving my stripper's salary for an education that will get me somewhere better.

But breaking the chains of a shitty past isn’t easy. He says I owe him. He says we aren’t done. I don’t care what he says anymore.

I do care about Adam.

But my history tells me I’m not the best judge of men. And the fact Adam’s been married four times tells me he probably isn’t a safe choice.

I need safe. I need better. I need out.

If the past is any indication of my future, getting out isn’t going to be easy.

Lets start this review off with some adjectives. Wonderful story, Amazing characters, Fantastically well-written and just WOW!!! It also needs to be said that I read this book in about five hours! Yes! It’s that good!!!

Roxie has really only had one relationship, Craig, when she met him in High School. She loves him, well she did love him but he turned out to be terrible for her. Just awful. They broke up and got back together several times but she’s had it and she won’t go back to him again. He’s coming around again and he’s threatening her. You won’t believe what he wants her to do!! OMG!!! Needless to say she’s in trouble and she needs help….

Adam is the owner of the place where Roxie works. He’s in love with her but things have been in the way for the past couple of years and the time has never been right. He’s been feeling this need to make his move. It’s been getting stronger and his protective instincts are in high gear when it comes to Roxie. Will she be acceptable to having Adam as more than a boss/friend? 

Things go from not good to really bad with Craig and Roxie is so worried. She keeps it from Adam as best she can but she finally has to come clean. When she tells him her story from the beginning, will Adam still want her? What happens when safety is becoming difficult to feel?

WOW, Cambria, this was one amazing story. Diving into the story right from the beginning and just takes you on a ride for the entire rest of the pages. It’s sweet and scary, romantic and hot, beach walks and action packed. Yes I’m sure all those descriptions seem opposites but it’s all true. You really need to read, Trashy, and I’m sure you will understand. What a fantastic read!!!!

Highly Recommend!

“Kiss me.”

He didn’t need to be told twice. In seconds he was standing to his full impressive height and towed me up along with him. Adam released my hand and cupped my face. His hands engulfed my jaw but he was so gentle. His eyes swept over me like I was the most beautiful thing he’d ever seen and around us sparks flew like snowflakes in a blizzard.

Instead of crushing his mouth to mine like I expected, like I wanted, he took his time. His heated gaze dropped to my lips, then back to my eyes. His fingers spasmed against my head and tightened ever so slightly.

Slowly, slowly he lowered his head, cupping my jaw so that I could do nothing but hold still and wait for him to arrive.

The anticipation of his lips on mine was almost my undoing. Everything going on inside me head floated away. I became aware of the moment, of the quietness in the room, of the way my body swayed wanting to get closer.

Adam’s lips brushed over mine, a gentle caress, once, twice and then a third time. He lifted his head just slightly and stared down at me, his thumb climbed up and caressed my lower lip.

He smiled softly and then joined our lips once more.
