Coming from a troubled home where no one loves her, Miya Jenkins turns to the only people who ever cared – the Walkers. Her best friends, Cate and Caden always have her back and their parents treat her like a second daughter. She’s smart, dedicated to her education, and focused on success. Miya learns to trust her instincts and never relinquish control, all while enjoying what life and men have to offer. Trust is a hard thing to come by for Miya, and she refuses to open up her heart. Like the willow tree under which she lost her innocence, she bends but doesn’t break.

Caden Walker – always there for her, always protective, always a comfort, but wanting more.

Miya refuses to reveal her inner self, not even to him, and she’s not willing to sacrifice their friendship. She wants a normal life, to feel anchored in the safety of someone’s arms, but she wonders if anyone can ever tear down the high walls built around her heart. Is it possible the walls already began to crumble beneath that willow tree? Will all of her successful endeavors lead her to the one she thought most unattainable?

Deserve Love 

This is one of those stories that I really look forward to. It contained so many different elements that I like that it would be hard not to enjoy it. I enjoy stories that have a character that overcomes tragic events from their childhood, friends turned lovers, and a happy ending. 

But this book included so much more than that. Usually friends turned lovers are separated for years for some reason. That didn't happen with Miya and Caden. They are together so much it's ridiculous.Caden's family takes her in after she finally leaves her parents.   They are roommates in college (along with Caden's sister Cate) so their lives are completely entwined. Each of them date and sleep with other people. They go on with their lives pretending that there is nothing between them.

I just wanted them to admit their attraction and get on with their relationship. They missed so many opportunities to admit how they felt. I was so frustrated with them that I just wanted to smack some sense into them. 

I loved that Miya found her inner strength. She came back from a rough childhood and learned to stand on her own two feet. She set goals for herself and works hard to achieve them. I admire her determination.

Overall, it was a pretty good story.
