My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Where to start. I fell hard in the beginning of this book. Olivia was sweet, yet troubled and Spencer was your stereotypical playboy CEO and I loved every minute of it. He owned it and wasn’t one bit ashamed.

When hearts are involved, nothing is ever easy and they had an uphill battle to fight.

Just when I was starting to love Olivia, she would do something stupid that made me want to shake some sense into her. I was left feeling disappointed in her halfway through her journey to happiness. While I realize the heroine had some past addictions and current hang ups, I was hoping by this point she would have been a little stronger and learned to cope a little better than she did. I was also both taken aback and elated when her party-girl friend made a complete 180 that I didn’t see coming. Then when tragedy struck I was sad nothing was said about her again until the end.

Spencer had so much going on, yet he still allowed his feelings for Olivia to develop and grow. And of course there were heart pumping scenes that involved him as well that had me gasping WTF at my Kindle. Speaking of…Addison needs to just walk away. Seriously! This woman!

Overall, I thought this was a good read with lots of twists and turns, complex characters and a plot-line that makes you believe in true love and happily-ever-afters.
