Christina Bell remembers what it was like to be part of a loving family. The youngest of the Bell children, she simply cannot believe that her dad, or anyone else she loves, had a hand in her mother’s disappearance. She’s looking forward to moving on and spending more time with her sexy best friend, Guy Miller, who she is starting to see in a whole new light.
Their attraction sizzling and love deepening, Christina feels confident in her life and ability to handle what comes her way...But when Nichole’s body is found—and the mystery of her death slowly reveals itself—Christina is left not knowing who to trust. What if Guy, her one true desire, proves to be her biggest danger?
Loved this one in so many ways except…. I wanted more at the end… Greedy I know but damn damn damn..
Guy has always been in love with Christina (Tink) but other than one stolen weekend has kept those feelings from her no matter how much it cost him. As information comes to light about the trauma from her past can he really still hope to have a future with the woman who means everything to him? I loved Guy in all the glimpses we’ve seen of him as the stories of the siblings were told. He’s such a great friend to all of them but his constant presence in Tink’s life was the most beautiful thing. You see his struggle with remaining only friends with her as she struggles with her own issues but there was something amazing as they spent more time together in an intimate fashion. You see his feelings in everything he does to get her the answers she needs even as the answers destroy him. He’s such an amazing man and the strength he shows was mind-blowing.
Christina is used to being different. She’s always struggled with finding her place in the world and quieting her mind. When she finally got the diagnosis of ADHD and dyslexia things started to make sense but then in a moment her world was shattered. She’s always had Guy to center her but wouldn’t let it become anything more because nothing stays. She’s not afraid to speak her mind but the sheer amount of fear she hides behind a devil-may-care attitude broke me a bit. As she struggles with the answers to the tragedy of her past she also struggles with her feelings for the man who is her rock. She wants to shut down and ignore everything but as others force her to confront the truth behind her own issues outside of the family tragedy she realizes that she could lose something much more precious…
They have some really steamy times but to be honest the conversations they have and the feelings they share with one another were so powerful that I really didn’t want to see the story end… Special thanks to NetGalley.com and St. Martin’s Press for the chance to read this in exchange for my honest review.
