Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.
Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed
But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?
I have no idea what it was with this freaking book but I just could not put it down. It was downright impossible! I am very strict when it comes to my sleeping schedule, I NEVER read after 10. If I do the book is dam addicting.
And this book was. I stayed up to midnight without even noticing, the story Armentrout can tell, and the WAY she lures you in with her characters, and words, it's addicting! It becomes oxygen. I woke up really early to start where I left off and finished the book a couple of hours ago.
You get mesmerized by the way their relationship grows, there is no insta-love, Jen builds up these characters a bit every time, and make them quite uniqe, especially Avery.
My heart would seriously ache at times for these two, because that is what this author does best - she makes you feel.
i give this book a strong 4/5!
