Release Date: March 23, 2015
Aleck Sanford had everything growing up, absolutely everything, except for the one thing he and his sister desired the most: the love of their parents. After many years of emotional neglect, Aleck only understood the love between siblings, his parents certainly didn’t love them or even each other. How do you pick yourself up when everything around you falls apart? When the only person to love you has to leave?
Will Aleck finally give into his feelings for Charline and save her before it’s too late or will their pasts get in the way? Will they both be able to overcome history and start anew?
I really enjoyed this story. There were several plot twists that I just didn't expect. It kept me reading, barely able to put it down for long.
My heart went out to Aleck, given his life growing up. Every child deserved to be loved. I can't blame him for feeling like he's not good enough for Charline. Lucky for him, her feelings for him have survived years.
I wanted so much for Charline to get her HEA, to break down Aleck's walls, to prove to him that he is definitely worthy of love. Of course, that took her taking a stand and telling him how it is... more than once.
There were a few things that seemed a little off to me. It wasn't enough for me to enjoy the story, just enough to keep me from giving it 5 stars.
Muriel Garcia grew up in Belgium. She loves music, tattoos, hot tattooed men, travelling, and cooking. She always had an overly imaginative and creative mind but never thought of writing a book up until a couple of months ago. Now she couldn't imagine not writing stories that are near and dear to her heart.
