The story that started with PERFECT SENSE continues…
Cash Brooks held a secret from Quinn that destroyed any chance they had at a happy ending.
Everything she believed their relationship to be was a lie.
Quinn left heartbroken for Harvard, unable to stop loving him even though she knew his past ruined any chance they had at a future.
Now, she’s in Boston completing her MBA and learning to move on without the only man she ever loved. Starting over isn’t easy… especially when an unlikely circumstance pulls her into Cash’s world once again. The truth will come out, hearts will be broken, and Cash will have to battle the mistakes from his past and fight for a second chance to be with the woman he loves.
Their love isn’t perfect, but will it be enough for Quinn to learn to trust him again? Or will the burden and mistakes from his past keep them apart forever?
Received an ARC from Xpresso Book Tours on behalf of the author, in exchange for an honest review.
Surprisingly book two was better than book one. Even though we still had some of the same problems from book one, such as locations and protection during intercourse, over all it was not bad.
We are left on this dramatic cliff hanger at the end of book 1 and we pick right up where we left off. Now Quinn is in Boston going to Harvard and is roommates with her old high school friend Aiden (Yes Aiden is a guy, and we are introduced to him in book 1). Things are going alright, but she still feels a huge gap in her life with the loss and betrayal of Cash. The fact that he hid something from her that was so monumental broke her. She knew he was hiding parts of himself, but she thought they were making a break through when they went to his home town in Canada. Well for lack of better phrasing, shit hits the fan, and Quinn’s world tumbles around her. So, we are now in Boston and it has been months. She hasn’t spoken to Cash in all that time. Quinn has avoid all forms of communication with him and has attempted to move on.
When Quinn begins to allow a friends-with-more type of relationship with Aiden, Cash is smashed back into her life like a boomerang. When Cash gets injured at a game while in Boston, Quinn finds out that she is his emergency contact. She heads to the hospital to try and help him recover. Even though she puts up boundaries while with him, the temptation and the connection they have is difficult to ignore. Quinn also hears out Cash’s side of the story regarding his deceit.
Even though he lied it still stings. Their relationship is rocky to say the lease.
These two are at times difficult to relate to. Quinn and Cash each have serious obstacles they individually need to overcome. Book two is a great deal more on Cash’s underlining addictions and self-loathing. He tries to overcome his demons, but his true motivation becomes Quinn.
I am glad I read these two books. Even though I had my own personal issues with some of the side content (that I have mentioned already) the overall romance and passion was worth the read. They had steamy scenes together. You may need a fan for some of them. I loved the growth Cash and Quinn have in this book. They emotional and mentally grow by leaps and bounds. They become better people for themselves and for each other. Which is exactly what you want in a partner. There are a few hiccups and scare parts of the story, that make you uncertain of what is going to happen, but we still receive our HEA.
Get through book 1 and you will love book 2.
