After breaking up with her long time boyfriend, Jackson DeLacey, eighteen year old Zara Borzilleri promises herself to focus on school and play the game she loves. Stepping foot onto the lacrosse field, in front of a cheering crowd, pushes aside the pain and reminds her of the future ahead at least until she graduates in four years.

Lacrosse star Treston 'the King' Parker dominates the field and to everyone else he has it all. Behind closed doors he's just Treston Parker- a monster full of secrets, deep, dark secrets only he knows. He won't allow anyone to get close and for the past two years he's kept his promises to her, but never his last promise: falling in love again.

One weekend he gives in and everything changes when he meets Zara. The rules change and she sees Treston for who he truly is, not what everyone else sees. But to Treston, meeting Zara means nothing, even though her blue eyes invades his mind.

We can be friends, but don't ask about my past or where I go. 

He draws the lines.
She erases his lines.

Can Zara help Treston escape his painful past before he sinks deeper into oblivion?

First let me start by saying that after promoting for this lady for so long I finally afforded myself the opportunity to sit down and read her work.  Starting with Take Me Away and I was not disappointed.  She lives up to the hype. It's been a while since I read the New Adult genre so it was an adjustment but I quickly settled in.

Emily and Treston Parker were meant to be.  A storybook romance for the ages but their story was cut short by the big "C" and a terrible tragedy that ripped her from Treston's life forever.  Rocked by what's happened Treston shuts his emotions off to everyone except the very few lucky enough to be close to him.  He treats women as dispensable pleasures fit to suck his cock and that's it.  Not even a hit it and quit it kind of guy.  Nope you won't even get the time of day.  What you see is The King and that's it.  And he is a KING on the Lacrosse field.  He's the star and that's all he needs or wants.

Zara Borzilleri came to Duke to play Lacrosse.  She was followed by boyfriend, Jackson, until she decides its time to cut the boy loose.  He's been following her around like a lost puppy believing she is his meant to be but she's doesn't return those feelings.  In walks The King and all of his attitude and her world is never the same.  Looking at him like a walking STD waiting to happen but not being able to avert her eyes at the same time.  She's repulsed by him but finds him intriguing.  She keeps him at arms length but wants him with a passion she's never known.

I will say I loved the relationship but it infuriated me at the same time.  These two could not get their act together.  They were wishy washy and almost too hot and cold.  But as much as I hated that most of the time it made me love them as well and made me root for them to get their act together.  I hate going so far as to say that it was highly unbelievable because well this is College ladies and lets face it if you went you know it wasn't much more grown up than High School especially the first couple years.

The writing was awesome though and if I wasn't a fan of this lady before for more than friendship she now has a fan of her writing as well!  Great job love, it was amazing and I can't wait to read more in the future!

Highly Recommended!
