He’s willing to give up everything to be with her.
No one ever thought she was special.
Carrington Olivia Butler is ready to shine. Always in the shadows of her siblings, she goes away to college to break out of her shell. All Carrington wants is to feel special. Josh’s attention is exactly what she craves, but their intense and sometimes volatile relationship is more than what she bargained for.

I received a free ebook in exchange for an honest review.
When I started this book, I had no idea that it would turn out the way it did.
What I liked about this book is the dark twist it takes. The characters, Josh and Jason are adults who are trying to accept that fact. Josh was a very complex character. His dark inner thoughts scared me, but they were original and I liked it.
What I didn’t like about this book was Carrington and the execution. The story was well thought out for, but poorly executed.
Overall, I was an intense read and i recommend it if you are not against adult content.
Recommendation: If you like dark romance and mature acts, then this for you.
