My honest review:
I hate CLIFF-HANGER-ENDING I should have waited to read this one when the sequel is released. Now i have another few months to find out what happen.
This book definitely can’t be put down, I’m hooked right from the beginning, thus the 4.5 stars! If you like mystery & suspense thriller romance this is definitely a book to read. The stories takes us through a journey of two fosters children (Blake & Cole) finding their past, discovering who they really are and where they came from. The book is written from Blake’s perspective by alternating between present and past, so as pages turn you’ll be collecting more puzzles to the dark mystery.
“I wish I didn’t have this strong urge to uncover my past, because with this comes devastation and sorrow that I’m not sure I’m strong enough to relive.”
I absolutely adore the chemistry between Blake & Cole.. They are foster siblings & once high school sweet heart. Even now living in two different cities and seeing other people they maintain appearance of platonic love for one another. Deep down they know that they are very much still in love with each other, although due to bitter pain of their breakup they couldn’t trust each other to rekindle their love, well until now. So you’ll endure the devastating & hardship of their love
Cole is just a swoon worthy male! He is smart arse mouth funny and make me all giddy inside. Definitely one big factor to read this book, as Cole is worth the drool.
“I’m in love with you, Blake. I’ve been in love with you from the moment I saw you. I’ve been in love with you from the day I was born and possibly even before then. I belong to you. My body belongs to you. My heart belongs to you. Please let me make love to you.” -Cole”
