After being left at the altar, Jade Roberts seeks solace at her best friend’s ranch on the Colorado western slope. Her humiliation still ripe, she doesn’t expect to be attracted to her friend’s reticent brother, but when the gorgeous cowboy kisses her, all bets are off.
Talon Steel is broken. Having never fully healed from a horrific childhood trauma, he simply exists, taking from women what is offered and giving nothing in return…until Jade Roberts catapults into his life. She is beautiful, sweet, and giving, and his desire for her becomes a craving he fears he’ll never be able to satisfy.
Passion sizzles between the two lovers…but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.
I was really excited to read this book. This book received so much hype everywhere I turned, but for me this book fell flat. It felt rushed and I felt as if there was no character growth. Jade a lot of the time really annoyed me. She was so quick to say one thing about Talon but do another. Poor Talon, he was one messed up guy. He had so many issues but held them in so for so long it made him closed off from everyone. He was my favorite character out this book. I just hated the way he always hid behind sex, yes he was attracted to Jade but he whenever he didn’t want to talk or avoid his feelings he always turned it to sex. I was let down by this book but I’m willing to at least give the second book in this series a chance before I decide not to finish.
