She stepped back, allowing them all to heal… move on… live without her…
Now at the age of twenty nine and almost a decade behind her, she is a master of disguise. Long gone is the timid girl who lived blinded by the ideas of love.
Until fate decides to intervene and the one man she has struggled to evade at all costs is pushed back into her life. He knows the real girl behind the façade, only he can pull her out of her self-imposed exile… breathing life back into her cold, protected heart.
Fate will do what fate wants and Sidney’s choices are no longer her own… but were they ever really hers to begin with?
If you like a story that is very conversational and you feel like you are talking to the characters, then this is the story for you. I really felt like I was living the story with Sidney and was having an ongoing conversation with her. It kept my attention the entire time and had me cracking up often. When I read the synopsis, I thought this was going to be a very heavy book. I was pleasantly surprised when it was much more relaxed and humorous than I was expecting it to be. There were so many elements to this book that it is hard to wrap it up in one neat & pretty review! The characters all had me laughing at their antics while also wanting to yell at them to just get it together because the sexual tension is strung tight!
There were many elements to this story that had me slightly confused, but as the story progressed, the author did start to answer some of my questions. I don’t want to say what because that’d give the story away. But don’t worry, if you find yourself slightly confused in the beginning, know that you will eventually get your answers. But then there is the ending and it’s a cliffhanger! Just be glad that the next book is coming out soon enough!
