Doctor and Junkie cross paths and can't escape the magnetic pull that draws them to one another. Meeting in unfortunate circumstances can't keep them from finding what is meant to be but the road is bumpy, long with many curves and obstacles standing in their way.
This book forced me to question my own moral compass. How strong is yours? Can anything make it bend? Shatter it? Never say never .. if you love someone, to what lengths would you go to keep them safe?
What would you do to escape your worst nightmare?
To me, this story is one of healing, finding strength in oneself that was there but perhaps unseen or hidden. It's about overcoming your past and fighting for your future. And redefining who you are by allowing yourself to see what others see in you.
It's a fresh start, a clean slate, a blank canvas, that you can create into a masterpiece of vibrant colors!
If you read The Hitchhiker you might remember Dr. Zeke Hartley aka Dr. Hottie. He sees something in Amelia that most don't and becomes her support system against the waves that are threatening to pull her under and back to her life of darkness.
I loved this book. I loved the chemistry between Zeke and Amelia. And I loved seeing characters from The Hitchhiker. This can be read as a standalone if you have not read The Hitchhiker yet.
We originally met Zeke in The Hitchhiker. This is a companion novel to that and can be read as a standalone, but if you read the Hitchhiker first you will get a better glimpse into the other characters. Or read the Hitchhiker afterwards... either way!!
I was hooked to this book from the very first page, and even though the first chapter is pretty horrific (yes I really did clutch myself and grit my teeth reading that one bit!!), it really sets the scene for the whole story. It does start dark, but stick with it....
Amelia is merely existing, Having escaped home after a horrific experiences there, she is now on the street, selling herself, selling and taking drugs, and scraping at the barrel to survive. It's the daily hits that get her through. But after everything comes to a head, she is given a second chance...
Zeke's main aim in life is to make a difference. He wants to help people... He's experienced pure tragedy in his family, and also wants to help the victims of rape and abuse, by setting up a charity to fund a safe-house and support for those women. He has reasons for this, but it's in his nature to help everyone... He's a wonderful doctor, and is drawn to helping Amelia out.
Zeke and Amelia form a wonderful connection, and with this story there are loads of twists and turns that you won't see coming. It is fast paced and full of suspense.
This story touches on so many subjects, dealing with difficult subjects, tragedy, heartbreak and trust. It's about finding yourself again, learning to trust and learning to live. Zeke is determined to help Amelia find that trust and gain her trust for him. He doesn't want to push her, but he certainly provides the temptation. The chemistry between the two is superb! I loved their whole friendship and of course when things heat up too!
This story is dark and gritty at times, but also plenty of elements of sweetness and love which is wonderful to see after all the darkness.
The secondary characters are great, seeing Brick and Katch again, and also being introduced to Zoe in this book.
Another great story from Charlie Lee - these two seem to be getting better each time! I can't wait to see what the bring us next!
I have never in my life read a story so raw and breathtaking at the same time!!
After reading Charlie Lee's debut The Hitchhiker, I knew their second book would be nothing short of a masterpiece!
Amelia is an extraordinary character!!
From the prologue alone, you fight for her. You want justice for the life that was taken away...even though she's still breathing.
Even at her lowest point in life, her beauty and strength shine through.
And the right person found her at the right time.
"I think I fell for you the minute you opened your eyes and pleaded for help without saying a word. I knew it then, and I know it now."
The patience of a saint. The strength of a fighter.
The knight in shining armor in the form of a doctor's coat.
I swear I fell for him as soon as he called her Bluebird! Be still my heart!
The connection that Zeke and Amelia shared, even before they met, was incredible.
I can't tell you how many times my breath caught as I awaited for what the next page would show me.
"Never did I expect to fall in love with the man who saved my life. Who made me open my eyes to a world full of color when all it's ever been was the deepest, darkest shade of raven black."
This story is not for the faint of heart.
As I said before, it's very raw.
Not only do you connect with Amelia and Zeke on such extreme levels, but you also feel emotions you probably never knew existed in your on body.
Charlie Lee, you have done it again!
Despite this long review, I'm left speechless!
This writing is amazing, the storyline is perfection, and the character development is on point!
Very well done!!
Now....I need Saxon's story;)

I need color. My color is you."
