ARC for Review
Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that’s based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson’s not the only one with secrets.
With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best—Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far—revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good.
This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…
The Way I See It
Okay, okay that was just... W.O.W. I have this crazy uneasy sinking feeling in my stomach that... *increase volume of the following words* THIS ENDED WITH A CLIFFHANGER!!!! Gah!!!!! So overanalyzing can totally be the Libra in me, you know looking at both sides blah blah blah... I’ve always asked myself why, why, why?
M. Paige, I must say you were masterful when it came to that sneaky sneaky cliffy... I don’t do the spoiler thing so I’m not going to go all into it, but i will say something gets presented mid-story about Hudson, then at the end the “evidence” is KIND OF in the picture, but there is this HUGE veil of happiness that makes it seem all “yeah whatevs no biggie,” BUT NOT THIS GIRL!! This girl (me) was like omg omg omg hyperventilating!!! I was like “HONEY! Is that Freebirds bag still on the counter? I can't breathe!” I love Hudson, I do, but I will go OLD SCHOOL Donkey Kong on his A$$!!! I’m talking Atari!! I don’t really know what Atari is, but it sounds old and menacing, so I’m gonna say it! Deep breaths...
F-rail, Alayna and Hudson’s relationship is under a lot of scrutiny.
O-pen, Hudson can't say the words, but his actions prove to everyone his love for her.
U-nderstanding, Alayna can forgive Hudson for his past indiscretions, a part of her knows why he has done some of the things he’s done.
N-ever, Alayna knows where she stands, and will not put up with Sophia’s bitterness.
D-read, secrets lead to painful doubt. Alayna has a hard time keeping them from Hudson.
I-ndependent, accomplishing her dream is so close. Alayna has to meet with her brother to cut ties and spread her wings.
N-aive, tricked by a cunning manipulator, Alayna stands to lose everything she has worked so hard for.
Y-earning, being away from Hudson tears Alayna apart, but she needs this, she needs to overcome her past.
O-bsession, so many people have so many secrets. Suddenly, a trap is set.
U-nited, after so much pain, a certain realization comes over Alayna. Vowing to stay together, she and Hudson will fight for each other.
I can honestly say I’m addicted to these books like seriously! I mean like angry at myself for falling asleep at 4am angry..like Hello? Sleep is NOT important. Bloodshot eyes the following day not important! Luckily sleep only overtook me for an hour or so, and I was able to continue! Yay for me! Yay for YOU! This is one that will have you turning the pages in anticipation of what's to come!
Gah!! He is so lost. He wants love and NEEDS love, but I doubt him from time to time! It hacks me off but man!! This guy has a serious past and if he hurts Alayna, I will lose a load. Gross? Yea. It's.That.Serious. He was amazing in this book. Sure, he makes some mistakes, but who doesn’t right? I just want these two to be able to cut through the BULL...TOGETHER! I want to be angry at myself for doubting him, and I want to MURDER Celia!!! Gah!! She SNOWED me too!!
Yeah, she has tendancies but WHO the BLEEP doesn’t?! She has worked really hard to become the woman she is. Alayna recognizes her stressors and fights them at every turn. A persons #1 enemy is themselves! Lack of confidence or love in yourself leads to doubt and insecurities, duh! Alayna doesn’t know who to trust and what to believe. I don’t always agree with her actions, but I understand why she does it, and I’m on her side! Yep, that simple! I.Love.This.Girl!

Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She is represented by Bob Diforio of D4EO Literary Agency.
