About the Story:
Andrew’s future was with the marines, or so he planned. But losing a leg from an IUD changed everything. Now he’s failing his fundamentals class and must get help from fellow student and off-campus neighbor Sawyer. But her beauty isn’t all that draws him to her. Sawyer spends her days with numbers and her nights with vodka. Both have been hurt, but will love bring them together?
The one thing that intrigued me about this book was its realness. Both of the main characters are realistic and make you hurt for them and with them. The pure emotion that Ms. Raines has in this book is amazing! I was hooked from the very beginning. Another thing I loved about this book was the tension. Ms. Raines does an amazing job bringing the reader to the edge of their seats and just dying to see what happens next. I loved how both characters were, in a sense, broken and they helped each other heal.
I will say it’s not as steamy as I thought it would be but the scenes are very well written and hook the reader in. Another great part about this book is the twist and turns Ms. Raines takes you through and makes you visualize these people and their lives so vividly. She does such a great job at making her characters broken but realistic, their stories not overdone or too dramatic. I highly recommend this book to all romance lovers. It’s the perfect blend of realism and romance!
Andrew Warren’s future was with the Marines, until an IED took his leg and derailed his career. Now he’s flunking Fundamentals, and he enlists the help of his fellow App State freshman and off-campus neighbor, Sawyer Layne. It’s not just the beautiful blonde’s looks that intrigue him, but the hurt in her eyes.
Sawyer spends her days surrounded by numbers and nights with a bottle of vodka to numb the darkness of her past. Guys like sexy, tattooed Andrew are exactly what Sawyer needs to avoid. Look but don’t touch—that’s the rule. If only his eyes weren’t so blue, and his abs not so chiseled….
When Sawyer resists his brand of charm, Andrew uses every devious tactic he knows to pull her from her shell. Falling in love was never part of the plan.
