"Jenifer Taylor is content with her life, dull and boring as it is. Being absent from the dating scene means she doesn’t have to deal with the major trust issues she has with men that stem from a controlling and aggressive ex-boyfriend and an absentee father. She’s happy being alone, sharing her life with her friends and family.A riveting read that I thoroughly enjoyed, and left me begging for the second.
When Jeni starts a typical day in the big city of Mornington Vale, California, it turns from bad to worse when she’s involved in a chain collision on her way to work.
Her world changes forever that day because she meets Aiden O’Connell, the billionaire son of Alistair O’Connell, who owns Mornington Vale’s largest financial corporation. Aiden is an up-and-coming young businessman who's ready to take on the vice presidency of his father’s company. He is the good son, and it’s imperative to Alistair that Aiden succeed and follow in his footsteps. Life for Aiden involves working hard and not much else.
After the accident, however, Aiden’s world changes as well. He finds Jeni irresistible and instantly pursues her. With some coaxing, she eventually agrees to a date, and the attraction is mutual.
Jeni finds love quickly with Aiden, but trusting him is another issue. When to trust is tested in many different ways but comes to a head when Aiden is investigated for a serious crime. As her trust issues spark, she is forced to go through a journey of self-discovery.
She must decide once and for all whether she trusts the man she loves when she’s asked the ultimate question: “Do you trust me?”"
This book was definitely a ride for me. Once I read the synopsis there was no way I wasn't going to read this book. I didn't care if this book was horrible (It was anything but!) but I was going to read this book. I am so glad I decided to read this book. It is definitely an amazing New Adult read.
Jenifer and Aiden's relationship is such a sweet one. I became addicted to reading about their relationship. I couldn't put the book down. On one hand who have Jenifer's past still haunting her and questioning every move anyone makes, and then you have Aiden's asshole of a father. All of this can create a very unstable environment yet this story works so well!!
As individual characters they are both amazing. Jenifer has some issues to deal with but who doesn't? Otherwise I find her to be a very strong character who has some very strong perseverance. (Does that makes sense?)
Aiden on the other hand....
This boy is absolutely amazing. He is really hot, sweet, chivalrous, and he's a family man (SCORE!). Someone needs to find me this man and give him to me for a Christmas present.
The only thing I'm going to say about the ending is that it tore my heart and I wanted to shrivel up into a little ball and hide in the corner. Guys, the ending was MEAN!! Make sure you have book 2 when you read this book!!!
Only reason I didn't give this book a 5 out of 5 star rating is because of the author's writing style. It takes some getting used to but after about 100 pages it wasn't even noticeable. When it comes to the plot of this book it gets a glowing and blasting 5 out of 5 stars.
I highly recommend this book who is 17+ only for certain scenes that people younger might not be totally comfortable with. Have tissues next to you when you read this!!
Rating: 4 out 5 stars!!
