A secret scar…
Tegan Callahan has sworn off bad boys for good. Growing up on tour with her rock star brother, she knows first-hand the damage they can do. She’s looking for a nice, safe, stable guy – until a chance encounter with a devastatingly sexy stranger makes her question everything she thought she wanted.
A troubled soul…
Ryland James arrives in Beachwood Bay on the run from his mistakes. He knows he’s the last thing Tegan needs, but somehow, he can’t stay away. There’s something about her fierce beauty that draws him in – and makes him vow to protect her, whatever the cost.
A passionate destiny…
Their bond is undeniable; the stakes, higher than ever. But the past won’t stay gone forever, and soon, Ryland must make the ultimate choice: will he risk everything he treasures in the world, or keep Tegan safe – and sacrifice her love forever?
*This book contains adult situations and explicit content. 17+
This is a good story, but it just didn't grab me like Uninhibited did. But I also realize that this story isn't all about hot sexy times, it's more about learning to let go of the guilt forgive yourself for not being able to stop your loved one from their own self destructive tendencies. I just wish there had been more drama and angst, especially when it came to Ryland's mom and that entire situation; that happened at the end of the story and it was all over so quickly it was almost a let down for me. That could have been present throughout the book just to have some tension happening. And you already know who the next book in the series is going to be about when Tegan's best friend shows up for a quick visit and who she's interested in.
