    This book is NOTHING like I was expecting it to be Not on the first page not 20 pages in not 150 pages in It was constantly surprising me because even when I was sure I knew what was going to happen oh how off base I was I spent the entire time clutching my iPad like a lifeline I cried I yelled I was shocked and I was in love I felt every emotion in the book I will say as a warning to all that there is a seuel coming so if you were expecting every loose end to be tied up in a pretty bow forget it now Tucker is an amazingly deep character even though I think he probably focused on sex too often rather than emotional connections Adri well I am going to let everyone make their own decisions about Adri She has had a rough go of it and I understand why she is the way she is but man did I want to smack the crap out of her a billion times This is an amazing heartwrenching book and EVERYONE needs to read this I literally read it ALL in one night I couldn't stop I love Renee's writing and I am dying waiting for the seuel to this bookThis was an ARC given to me for an honest review

    45 out of 5 Hollywood Heart throb starsHaving not not read the synopsis of this book before I began reading and had no idea what I was in for It was a pleasant surprise While the dual POV from the main characters slowed my reading down at the beginning once additional characters were introduced into the story the book progressed at a nice paceAdri and her friends are very likable characters They are a tight knit group with a long storied history and are bound by a strong love for one another Adri is struggling with a difficult life event and when a handsome strangernon stranger arrives out of nowhere Being the trusting individual she is she invites Tucker into her home after he helps her with her groceries She enjoys having someone to cook for and showcase her culinary talents forTucker has hit the road trying to distance himself from a very bad and public breakup Trying to stay under the radar is wearing on his nerves and he takes the advice of someone he loves and goes off the beaten pathRenee takes these two very vulnerable individuals throws them together in what seeks like a completely plausible situation and makes you feel for them fall in love with them and has you wanting them to fall in love with each other The baggage that each carries creates so much conflicted tension that the tears welled up for me time after timeThis is the first book in the series and I look forward to seeing where it takes these characters whom I have grown to love

    Adriana Monroe has been living the last sixteen months of her life in Hell If you could even call it living Her husband and best friend Alex was killed in a car accident They had known each other since they met in Kindergarten In her attempts to deal with what has happened Adriana has been pretending to be fine when she is around their close knit group of friends But she is secretly dying inside and is thinking she needs to move away from them and all of her memories of AlexTucker Stavros is a movie star that is haunted by his past and running from his present devastation He has no plan and is driving aimlessly to get away from it all with the only contact he has being his grandmother and best friend Eddie And then he stumbles across AdrianaNeither one of them are prepared for the reactions they have to one another Adriana for the first time since Alex died feels alive for the first time Tucker has always felt lost and abandoned But Adriana makes him feel at home And he wants to keep that feelingMy heart breaks for both of them Adriana has such a hard time dealing with Alex's death that she just can't decide anything And that both breaks my heart and makes me mad at her Tucker wants to help and protect her but realizes she hasn't let go of Alex yet Tucker struggles with his own demons and his view of the whole situation breaks my heart I just want to comfort him all by myselfThe book's first few chapters are told in dual points of view however they are merely re tellings of the same scenes That did bother me at first because it seemed to drag things out too long for my liking But as the book progresses the story moves along uicklyI can say that I really did like this book a lot The story intrigued me and made me want Especially with the way the book ends I could not believe I was left hanging like that You must read this book so you can understand what I am talking about After such a great story I certainly hope there is a resolution in a future book that I don't have to wait for foreverAs for whether or not Adriana and Tucker ever admit their feelings to one another I'll never tell ;
