Goodreads Summary:

Luke Price's life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does.

Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents' unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it's hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can't stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything.

Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they've never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you . . .



What Made Me Swoon:


"Before I can even take my next breath, he's leaning in and his lips are brushing mine.  My breath is stolen and tossed aside somewhere, my legs instantly turning to rubber.  I've been kissed plenty of times by people I hate, dislike, felt no connection with at all.  This is different...even more so than in his truck...this is...stimulating.  Slow and sensual...everything is slow, even my heart rate.  I feel a sinking feeling drift through my body down to my toes as I slide my hands up his lean arms and grip into his shoulders to keep from collapsing to the ground.  He holds my weight in his arms, again making me feel safe.  I open my mouth and let his tongue slide in deeply as I press my chest against his."  (eARC, Loc. 2946)
