Description from the publisher:
Life is full of the unexpected. At times, the only thing you can do is just breathe.
For twenty-four year old Cassandra Anderson, life hasn't been easy. Haunted daily by her own demons and memories of the past, she suffers from panic attacks and questionable anal-retentiveness. The motto she lives by is "Trust no one. Fear nothing."
Bartender Lucas Daniels comes into her life like a whirlwind. Hot enough to melt wax, he is tantalizing, sometimes overbearing, and quite possibly one of her weaknesses. Lucas, having secrets of his own, understands pain all too well.
Only time can tell what the future holds for them. Will Lucas cause Cass to question everything? Will she be drawn to him or will they end in resentment?
This is book one in the Blue Series. The do need to be read in order.
Cass’ life has been anything but easy and coping with the memories often leaves her breathless. Lucas just may be the natural resuscitation she needs, if he can bury his own demons first.
One of my favorite quotes: If it’s true that every person has a theoretical devil and an angel perched on their shoulders persuading them to make decisions, it's safe to assume my angel is on vacation, and the subconscious devil is open for business. (Included with permission from the author.)
I love reading first releases from new authors, especially when I am lucky enough to pair up with one with raw, natural talent and an unique writing style. Ms. Craze’s writing is poetic prose. I think it is amazing to find literary care in the fast-paced, fast-food mentality that is so common in America today. It is imaginative. It is intelligent. It is not the same-old, same-old. Thank God for a distinctive voice in today’s world of literature. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
