~ Synopsis ~
He’s twenty-four. She’s eighteen.
His life is exactly the way he’s always wanted it to be…stable.
She’s quite possibly the very definition of unstable.
Noah saved her.
Georgina never wanted to be saved.
Growing up, Noah Clark was passed from one relative to the next until he finally ended up living with his abusive, alcoholic uncle in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Thanks in part to the unwavering love and support of his best friend, Ellie Turner, Noah survived those years, escaped his uncle, and grew into the man he is today. Now he runs his own business and lives a pretty normal, no-nonsense life—one where he maintains a high level of control.
Georgina is Ellie’s younger sister. Four months ago, Noah saved Georgie’s life, but he thought that was where his involvement with his friend’s sister would end. Now Georgie has returned home from the recovery facility her parents sent her away to and Noah, still haunted by the night that connects them, can’t stop himself from continuously trying to protect this girl he barely knows. But is he willing to give up all of the control he’s worked so hard to build in his life and risk everything for her? Even more importantly, would she do the same for him?
~ Review by Venture ~
Noah and Ellie grew up together as best friends. When Noah’s world was a mess and he needed stability Ellie and her family gave him that. When tragedy strikes the family, Noah walks into a bigger nightmare. Blood everywhere. His world becomes about Georgie. Georgie is Ellie’s little sister. She is eighteen and her world has changed drastically but Noah saved her.They have a six year gap between them. Maybe Georgie can save him also.
I was totally blown away from this book. The title didn’t grab my attention. The story had me sucked into it from the very beginning. It was full throttle and emotional from the first page. The intensity of Noah and Georgie is amazing. Sometimes you need to hit bottom to find out what you need or want. Noah is everything that you want in a male character. A bad boy with a good heart. The imperfections make you appreciate the things that make him such a great person. This is my first book from this author and I am looking forward to reading more. I would have to say this is one of my favorite books of the year. I would give this ten books but she will have to settle for five books.
