When you’re young you think you know it all. I was fortunate enough to live in a world where poverty was just something I’d heard of, but never experienced. Until, I took a chance on the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. The chemistry undeniable. Our worlds collided and I fell hard, we both did. I needed him to stay and when he didn’t, it broke my heart. So I grew up and moved on. I didn’t know who I was back then, or what I was up against. But I do now. I won’t make the same mistakes.
I made mistakes, I thought I knew what I was doing. Turns out sometimes loyalty and stupidity go hand in hand. I took the one thing I needed most and I pushed her away with my actions. Sent her running in the opposite direction is more like it. When fate brings us together again, I desperately want to make things right, prove to her that I’m not that guy anymore. Time has done nothing to put out the fire between us, but she has no plans to let me be a part of her future. I’m about to change that. cooltext311971689825712

I’m crying 😩 and that’s why I personally prefer light and funny reads than emotional, tragic books☹. But this was so captivating I couldn’t just put it down. 

I don’t know what I was expecting but it was definitely not this!!! 

So much pain!! The whole book had a painful undertone to it. Writing was fantastic. 

Torren and Ari are from the opposite side of tracks. 

He needed some help and she agreed. (Not that easily obviously) 
They spend the time together and their chemistry is simmering. It’s just waiting to explode. They give it a chance. Then one night changes everything. 

After 8 years they meet again and both are in pain, full of love though. They try to navigate all misunderstandings and pain. 

Torren is so fucking kind. He feels like HE needs to make everyone’s life easier. He stole the heart really.❤

Ari I felt was fine(I can’t actually say much about her) but she had me so damn irritated around 80% of the book. She was great in the start though. 

“I do. I love you so much that it hurts.”His grin widens, and he picks me up and spins me in a circle with his lips pressed to my neck. “I never knew how not to,”he admits.

PS I do wish there was an epilogue too.

Thank you to the author for providing an arc. 
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review
