Five years ago, Embry Jacobs ran...
She ran from a past that still hasn’t let her go, but her dream of becoming a lawyer is stronger than her fear of confronting that past. Embry’s sole focus is to get through law school—with the help of her best friend, Morgan—and make something of the broken girl she became. Not thinking about falling in love, being in a relationship or even entertaining the idea of romance, Embry is moving forward one day at a time.
Luke Brody is charming and sexy, and has a past of his own. He wants nothing more than to put his demons to rest and move on with his life. But, when Embry enters the picture, is he destined to repeat those same mistakes?
Blindsided by their instant attraction, neither Luke nor Embry are prepared for the feelings they’re developing. But will it all be for nothing?
Will they let their pasts destroy them, or will they risk everything to fight for their relationship when it all comes undone?
First of all, I wanna thank Enticing Journey for letting me be a part of this tour. It was an honor to read and review this book. This was my first read by RE Hunter(and yes, it's her debut novel) and it didn't disappoint. I was excited to read Rose's book and loved it.
This book was so well written, I felt like I was there most of the time. Rose paints a vivid picture when it comes to bringing these characters and their story to life. I felt their emotions and their struggles as if they were my own. Now the thing is, I'm a New Yorker, so to see this novel taking place in my first home was a lot of fun. I just love New York and everything about it. Another cool thing is, my grandfather was a well known lawyer for New York City so that was another thing I had in common with this book. Because Embry is So I was already in love before I started the story...
Now, I'll say I enjoyed this crazy ride that Embry took me on. She was a wonderful character, full of flaws and yet she was strong. She had a rough past and was hiding from it. Who hasn't had a rough past? I think we've all been in her shoes once in our lives, maybe not the same situations but at least something that haunts us and keeps us from going after what we truly want. So we settle for whatever we think we deserve. Embry broke my heart and at times, she frustrated me. But she was real too. So I loved her and hoped things would work out.
Luke. Luke was sexy and amazing. And very damaged. He's got a secret and he's got his own set of issues, but I loved him. Especially with Embry. Their chemistry was epic and beautiful and hot hot hot! But he was also so protective and alpha. We all love our alphas. And he could cook. Oh a man who cooks is perfection.
I loved the secondary characters too. The whole cast played their roles so well. I was easily connected to each of them and felt for them and wanted everyone to have happy endings and greatness. And then the ending happened....yeah, not cool. I'm eagerly awaiting for book 2. So, for a debut novel, this was fantastic. Great job Rose! I gave it a 4/5 stars!
