Asa and Callie had nothing in common. He was an Ace, raised in the club and loyal to it above all else. She was a high school student with braces on her teeth and a narrow view of the world.

They should have never crossed paths.

But when Callie decides to defy her parents, and Asa goes on an errand for the club, their lives collide. He saves her, and she mesmerizes him.

They part believing they’ll never see each other again.
Neither could have predicted the chain of events they’d put in motion.

Now the two have to navigate the dark waters of a relationship built on tragedy and need without drowning in guilt for things outside their control.

How do you love someone when the worst decision of your life was the reason you met them?

Val’s Review

4.5 Stars

This book was awesome. I really enjoyed Asa and Callie’s story. I know some people had a problem with Callie’s age at the onset of their relationship, but it didn’t phase me at all. Right or wrong, I thought it was hot. I mean let’s be real, I knew a lot of 16 year olds hooking up with way older guys when I was 16. It’s just real life.

This was actually a 5 star read for me until about 90%. Then it just fell apart. You know when a book has major prologue foreshadowing and then the story builds and builds and builds toward how we got to that prologue, ending in a blazing explosion of awesomeness?

Well this book built and built and built and it was awesome…until the explosion of awesomeness I was expected was totally ripped away and replaced by a half assed deflating balloon.

Color me sad.

Anyway, up until that point I was enthralled so 4.5 Stars. Can’t wait for the next one.
