Blurb:
Andrew Harper grew up in a house marked by tragedy. His older brother Owen did his best to shelter him, but you can only be protected from life’s pain for so long. Eventually, you end up just feeling numb…and isolated.

Loneliness was the one constant in Andrew’s life. Until one girl, met by chance in a high school hallway, changed everything. Emma Burke was a mystery and all that was beautiful in this world, the only air Andrew ever wanted to breathe. She took the lonely away, and filled it with hope and color, and Andrew would do anything to keep her safe, happy and whole.

But sometimes, what feels good and right is what ends up hurting us the most. And when Andrew and Emma are faced with an impossible decision, Andrew is tested to see just how far he’s willing to go for the girl who owns his heart.

Cuts are deep.

Scars are left behind.

And revenge beckons.

When Andrew finally gets his chance, in college, five years after his first love broke him completely, he finds out old feelings don’t really disappear just because you say you hate someone. The more he tries to avenge all that he believes he lost, the more he uncovers the real story of what happened years before.

Love is wicked. But a restless heart is never satisfied beating on its own. Can Andrew and Emma make it right before it’s too late, or will the ties that bind them now destroy their only chance at a future?

My Review:
Gosh, didn’t think Ginger could top Wild Reckless but she did. This book was incredible – the character development was superb, the plot flowed fluidly, the writing was beautiful, and it evoked so many different emotions in me. I never wavered in my love for Andrew and all his emotions were genuine and believable. That boy sacrificed so much and he was in so much pain – my heart physically ached for him. I wanted him to find happiness so badly and my only complaint is that I wish we got a longer epilogue, but that’s probably just me being greedy. Loved the little glimpses of Owen and Kensi. Absolutely exceptional. You knocked it out of the park, Ginger. Highly Recommended.
