I’d learned early that life was unpredictable. For some that made them stronger, but others it made them weaker. I was somewhere in the middle, teetering on the invisible line. Until I met him, and he shoved me off.
I couldn’t explain why I wanted her. I just knew she’d be mine, regardless of her past and mine. Even when they crossed in a way I could ‘t have predicted, my need for her never wavered.
If you can hold on through the rain you’ll learn some of the best moments in life are . . . unexpected.
***This is a college romance with a slight twist.
An unexpectedly great romance!
Alex suffered a tragedy at 16 years old and now is a bit closed off and only trusts her best friend, Kass. Her only family is her brother and their relationship has never been the same after the tragedy. She also has a childhood friend, Lucas, but I found their relationship to be strained and kind of odd.
Alex meets Trayton, a cocky, alpha male, and there is an instant attraction between them. Trayton has trust issues of his own, which adds a little difficulty to the mix. Despite his trust issues, Trayton is immediately intrigued with Alex.
Their relationshis is shaky at best in the beginning. Both Alex and Trayton seems to realize the other has secrets. But, they slowly open up and begin to trust. Until…well, you’ll have to read to figure that out.
This is a well-written, clean romance (no sex) with a few twists and turns. Good character development, good use of secondary characters and a sweet romance make this a hit!
