He had held a secret that destroyed her world. 

Everything she had known was no longer true. 

Blaire couldn’t stop loving him but she knew she could never forgive him. 

Now, she was back home and learning to live again. Moving on with life… until something happened to send her world spinning once again. 

What do you do when the one person you can never trust again is the one that you need to trust so desperately? 

You lie, hide, avoid, and pray that your sins never find you out.

I liked this better than the first one.

It’s very short and sweet.

Blaire and Rush were back… with stronger twisted feelings and emotions. They were always both unsure about what feels what. What? Blaire has a humongous trust issue. Can’t blame her, after all what happened on the first book. Rush was an over-possessive-anxious-jealous-lover (call him everything) trying to get Blaire back with his sorry-ass. Honestly, I feel so sorry for him throughout the entire book. He’s like a puppy tailing Blaire everywhere and trying to be cautious with all his actions to avoid making any mistake in front of Blaire. He sometimes looked so pathetic but that’s the more reason why I rooted for him until the end. Everything he did for Blaire was every woman’s dream. He’s so sweet, even he, himself can’t believed what he’s doing, but he still did what has to be done anyway, because well, he’s in love. I just love it when the two of them were together. All be damned, my ship is sailing!

There are big supporting character developments (e.g. Woods and Bethy).

There were times, when I thought better of Woods than Rush, because man, he’s ready to take all the responsibility for Blaire. He didn’t say it clearly, but his actions said so. He’s too charming and I am well aware that there’s a story of him on this series. I have to get to that. I really like this guy!

And Bethy… oh, this sweet protective best friend of Blaire. I knew she’d be more attached to the story, but I never knew I’d like her this much. It’s just too nice to think that there were people around Blaire who were more than willing to care for her during the hardest times of her life. I just like Blaire so much even if she’s too conflicted with her feelings and can’t make straight decisions sometimes, I like her as a protagonist and I like her enough for not annoying the hell out of me.

And speaking of annoying, Nan, the little evil sister who’s a big toxic in the environment. What a spoiled brat. That’s why I’m happy with all the turn of events at the end. Thank goodness for CLEARING all the family dramas. Even how funny it may seems, the part with Blaire and his father made me a little teary. I don’t like too much family drama, sure. But that moment just can’t be ignored. It was too touching and all relief came pouring in.
