Marissa longs for a better life. Tired of running and constantly moving, one fateful night she decides to leave her father and find her long lost family. Has she made the right choice or has Marissa damned herself to another life of the same just with a pretty façade on it this time?
This book was an interesting tale full of depth and emotion. As Marissa struggles to find herself she must deal with her newfound family. Befriending her cousin Devon saves not only his sanity but hers as well. The bond they share only grows as they do. When the two meet Celeste and Gareth the instant attraction they feel makes for a good read. As the four begin to bond the enemies begin to circle. Hopefully the trust that they share will help them through the darkness. I enjoyed watching them each find themselves and their pasts. The four are each very strong characters in their own way and the bond they achieve is a wonderful thing.
