My Review

5 Stars
Absolutely loved it! Megan Smith is an auto buy author for me so loving this book came as no surprise to me. It is probably my favorite of Megan's books so far. I sat down with the intention of reading a few chapters and 4 hours later i had the book finished. I just couldn't put it down. She out did herself with this story of finding one's self, letting go of the past, and learning to love and trust again. 

Jasmine Jennings lived a life under the strict thumb of her parents. She had all of the money in the world but she the lacked freedom that she so desperately craved. Her parents controlled everything she did, including deciding what college she should go to and what she would major in. On the day of her college graduation, she turned 22 and gained access to her trust fund left to her by her grandfather. That is when she picks up and moves to New York with her best friend Summer in search of freedom.

While in New York, she and Summer meet the fun and sexy Rex, a local nightclub owner. They quickly become good friends and that is how Jas meets the super sexy Knox. He is Rex's older brother. Knox pursues Jas relentlessly always getting the same answer...NO.

“What do you want, Knox?” 
“Not happening.”
“Not yet.”
"Not ever.”

After Summer has a bad week, Jasmine finally agrees to go to South Carolina with her, Rex, and Knox for 4th of July weekend. She's blown off Knox for this weekend wont be too hard. But that one weekend is when things get complicated. Because Knox starts feeling more for Jasmine than he should and the wall around Jasmine's heart crumbles a little more with every smile, look, and compliment that comes her way from Knox.

These two finally embark on a journey of love together but how can they do that with so many secrets between them? How far will one go for revenge, when it could destroy a second chance for a happy ever after? How can you live for the future when you are still stuck in the past? You will need to read and find out. :)

The story took turns that i wasn't expecting. Let me just say that the big secret blew me away! It had me crying...big fat ugly tears that made it hard to see the words on the pages. This story has everything you could ask for in a good book. A unique plot line with an OMG climax, a sexy alpha with an attitude, a strong heroine, angst, erotic scenes, and a cast supporting characters that throw in just the right amount of fun. I am looking forward to Jeremy's story coming this fall. Well done once again Megan!

Later that night Knox takes me to bed. He helps me rid myself of clothes and I do the same to him. We climb into his bed and lie facing each other. Knox pulls me closer to him and puts my arms around his neck. I cradle him to my chest, content in this moment.

“I’m falling hard, Jas.” Knox says with so much emotion in his voice it makes me want to be a girly girl and cry.

My heartbeat picks up. I run my hand through his hair, comforting him. “Me too.”

“I’m still trying to find my way out of this nightmare I’ve been living in.” Knox sighs deeply.

“I’m still trying to find my way in life.” I place a finger under Knox’s chin and tilt his head up. What I see in his eyes is like a mirror of my own. “We’re both lost. We’re trying to find our way and we’re working on finding us.”

Knox’s breath hitches before he crashes his mouth to mine. “We’re finding us.”

I bite down on my bottom lip and Knox reaches up and releases it with his thumb before he kisses it. Something in this moment changes between us. We both admitted that we are finding us, finding our way to be with each other. This road is going to be bumpy as hell but it will be worth all the damage once we get to the other side. I hope.
