Eleven months ago,
bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece
Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him
since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never
happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide,
forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but
Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care
facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the
person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends
with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her
and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the
receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to
blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.
isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t
believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself.
He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s
not going to let history repeat itself.
Yet another book to this amazing series. Jennifer L. Armentrout has quickly become one of my favourite authors and when I find out that she is putting out a new book (especially when it's in the new adult category) I buy it asap. She never fails me.
Roxy is the artist/bartender that we met in Stay With Me (Jax and Calla's story). She is a sassy little thing that had something going on with a local cop, but we weren't sure what. Well it turns out that they have feelings for each other and eleven months ago almost slept together. Reece however doesn't know that they didn't. This of course leads to some interesting situations. When you add in the fact that strange things keep happening in her apartment you get a recipe for an amazing read.
This series is great because with each new book we learn more about the minor characters and the world becomes even more dynamic. In September we will get Nick (bartender at Mona's) and Steph's (Teresa's former roommate) story in Forever With You and I could not be more excited.
