Brenda Novak is another favorite author of mine, it wasn’t until I was half way through the book that I realized I’ve read this before. It was a nice surprise and I had to shake my head so now I have a digital and hard copy. Addy is a tough person and I really am just amazed at her. I don’t know what I would have done if I had been gang raped by five guys. I probably would have just given up. Addy was different after she graduated she moved away and never came back until 15 years later, to take care of her grandmother. That sparks all kinds of trouble because not only is she kidnapped and thrown into a mine, she also comes face to face with the twin brother of one of her rapists.
I felt kind of bad for Noah because he had no idea why Addy kept trying to push him away. I always thought he did something wrong and it never crossed his mind that it was his twin, Cody, who was the problem. When everything comes to light, sides are chosen and the town is ripped apart. Not only that but Noah’s friend, Bax, was a sweetheart and I felt for him. Not only is he gay but he’s in love with his straight best friend and finally had to courage to not only tell him but show him. I enjoyed reading this and finding out how strong Addy truly is.
Sometimes home is the refuge you need-and sometimes it isn't

She's there to take care of her aging grandmother and to help with Gran's restaurant, Just Like Mom's. But Adelaide isn't happy to be back. There are too many people here she'd rather avoid, people who were involved in that terrible June night fifteen years ago.
Ever since the graduation party that changed her life, she's wanted to go to the police and make sure the boys responsible-men now-are punished. But she can't, not without revealing an even darker secret. So it's better to pretend....
Noah Rackham, popular, attractive, successful, is shocked when Adelaide won't have anything to do with him. He has no idea that his very presence reminds her of something she'd rather forget. He only knows that he's finally met a woman he could love.
