Do you ever think sometimes fate and destiny bring your life full circle? People we meet along the way, weather we know them or not could be the ones to save us. How do you move on when all you have ever known is hurt and lies? These were just a few of the questions that this book will have you asking.
The prologue sucked me in. I was left heartbroken just like the characters. The tissues were out and I felt sick to my stomach I knew immediately that after that there was no chance of sleep this was a book that I was going to devour and boy was I right.
Dax is a rockstar, but after loosing his first love and all the lies that surrounded that he had built a wall around his heart. Dax is sensitive and not your typical rocker. He gave his heart away years ago and all that is left is broken.
Giselle lost her cousin/best friend many years ago, but on that night she also lost something else, something she will never get back. Living her life now is always an uphill struggle. She doesn't do relationships, she has tried but they always end up in heartbreak.
When Giselle sees a man hiding out in a storm she does what any compassionate person would she offers him shelter and when they are in close proximity there is a chemistry that neither of them expected. There is recognition but that isn't possible. They both spend time thinking of the other and over a period of time they find themselves thrown together again and again.
With Dax taking some much needed R&R, he is shocked to find Giselle taking a break at the same place. Why is this woman continuously thrown in his path. One night they end up kissing and the spark ignites a flame...however Dax is quick to pull back and push her away. He knows he wants her but he also believes he is no good for her. Thinking he could be making the biggest mistake of his life he talks to Giselle again and this is where truths start to be told their past becomes their present and their connection finally comes to light.
This couple met years ago and fate seems to be stepping in and making them each others destiny!!!
