From New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a twisted and passionate love story that pushes the boundaries of loyalty. Maybe we shouldn’t have fallen so fast and so willingly.

Maybe we should have never been together. Houston has kept a devastating secret from Rory since the day he took her into his home. But the tragic circumstances that brought them together left wounds too deep to heal. Five years after the breakup, Houston and Rory are thrust together by forces beyond their control. And all the resentments and passion return with more intensity than ever. Once again, Houston is left with a choice between the truth and the only girl he’s ever loved.

Rory has loved him since the day she set eyes on him. But life happens. Life is complicated and he lets her go. He’s of course regretted it ever since. I mean who wouldn’t? I was actually surprised while reading, that I loved the back and forth. From the present to the past, as you learn how their relationship came to be and how it ended prematurely. Just due to a fear and of course he was being selfish. Cause usually I can’t stand it! and when there’s more than two point of views but this was amazing. There are so many moments that are so heart wrenching. They just tear at you. You’ll be in tears. I really loved Rory. There’s just something about her. I still feel there’s an Innocence about her. i understand why Houston did the things he did. But their just so heartbreaking. Why not be honest? why not tell her this is what happened? instead of breaking someone to the point, where there was no way they would be able to forget you. “..No matter how toxic things got between us, the good still outweighs the bad in my lovesick recollection.” Now, I actually wasn’t bothered by Houston being married in the present. His wife seriously needs some therapy. You don’t cry wolf every time something doesn’t go your way. Especially, when he’s learned something that you kept secret. Your suppose to be honest about stuff like that in a relationship. The Narrators on this book are amazing. I loved them both. Sometimes it’s hard to find an audio-book where you really connect with them.
