Description from the publisher:
“I’m not very good at sharing, especially when it comes to you Harper.”

A pain too hard to understand.
A struggle too deep to reach.
A love too complicated to work…but too intense to let go.

Harper Mae ran as far away as she could from her abusive past. She went to a different city and numbed her pain by using men, never sleeping with the same guy more than once.
Ryder worked at a coffee shop trying to blend in with the rest of the world, desperately trying to live a normal life. After leaving a relationship and losing his family, he vowed never to fall in love again.

Until one day they are unexpectedly drawn to each other unable to let go.

Harper and Ryder’s turbulent relationship, two people who are struggling to find themselves, realize the answer lies within each other. 

Secrets, so deep, that both have, end up surfacing causing irrevocable pain. 

Will their love be strong enough to survive or will their pain be the downfall to their relationship?
Will Harper open up enough to share her past with Ryder or will he be just another number on her list?


Caution:  I do recommend reading this story, but it is definitely a book for those over 18.  There is one scene of sexual battery / near rape and several depicting domestic violence.

Even the most confident put-together person you know has their past.  Not all are dramatic, but we all have something we keep to ourselves.  The question is: when do you trust the person you love with that long held secret and shame?

Harper Mae and Ryder Andrew Kent are so perfect for each other.  Unfortunately, they both have trust issues, especially Harper.  This was a sweet story of two people each haunted by their own pasts.  This is a story of finding each other and learning to trust each other and themselves.

This book had a great plot and using Harper's dreams to give us the background story was an unique device.  The scenes are well developed.  The only major drawback was the editing.  Some of the sentences just didn't have the flow they should have had.

Editing / Grammar: C.  My favorite mistake was "Ryder was sitting there baring his sole to me…"
