I want to
prove my worth, show them what I have. 
I may be
flawed; we all are.
But I’m
smart, driven, and ready to take on the world.
No one
needs to know the rest.
I wasn’t
counting on him, couldn’t imagine someone like him coming into my life.
The blue
eyes, the chiseled body, the man I can’t resist.
I have no plans of ever resisting him. 
He has the
carefree, playboy life he wants,
The one he
created and refuses to give up.
But he
didn’t count on me waltzing in and changing everything.
Gray can’t
deny his passion for me—all parts of me,
Even the
truth I try to bury—the flaws he knows I’m hiding.
And trust
me, he’s imperfect too.
sometimes, we need more than love—more than we can give.

My Review:

3.5 Stars!

Wow!  I’m not going to lie.  This is a HARD read.  There isn’t anything sweet about this book.  It is a down and dirty look at two people who should NOT be together.

Annie is a hot mess.  She has so many issues.  Then she meets Gray and… nope.  He just makes it worse.  Gray is a selfish PIA.  I mean, really?  Annie wasn’t enough for him.  Ugh!

I finished because of the author’s note.  If I had skipped over that, I would probably have quit about a third of the way in.  I finished and this is a duet, so there is no resolution.

Suffice it to say, this a gritty read with messed up characters and a relationship that isn’t really a relationship.  It is worth a read though.  Stephie Walls keeps it consistent, honest, raw and gritty and for that I commend her and kept reading.
