Most of the time I had trouble believing the characters motives. Main character Josh really didn't have what I consider good friends, yet he was willing to put up with being treated badly by them for years. And Melanie, yes had a troubled past, but was not standing on her own like I like my heroines. Majority of the book I disliked her a lot, then I just felt sorry for her. Not sure if the story line moved fast enough for me to care about the characters. On the good side though I feel the author had put a lot of herself into the book. She just made some rookie mistakes and can improve on them.

Melanie Clark is starting a new life in San Diego. She is trying to leave her hard, terrible past behind her.

New friends. New school. New life. Sounds easy but it is not always like this.

For 3 years she had nightmares. She still has them. Now they are just not as terrible as they were. They are just a sweet torment because they are filled with him. Josh.

Josh Danes is lacrosse player who since the moment he saw her, he couldn't tear his eyes from her. He was captivated by her. She intrigued him.

Their friends kept them apart because they feared for her. They saw the effect he had on her.

When her past hits her in the face, will Josh be able to save her?

I need the next book as soon as possible.

A quick read. Not an easy one because some scenes will just won't allow you to swallow or breath because they are hard.

Embracing life is a suspense and love story rolled into one. This is the first book in the series. Melanie has been through the ringer as a young girl. She has gone through something that no one should go thru and it has just about broken her. She meets Katie and Mike and they take her under their wing. She also meets Josh but feels unworthy. Can she learn to open up to these new friends or will the past come back like always?

Melanie was such a mystery. As the story develops we get a bigger glimpse into why she is the way she is. Katie and Mike are the kinds of friends everyone needs. They protect her even when she doesn't realize it's happening. Mike's best friend Josh is taken with Melanie the first moment he sees her. With high school drawing to an end and their futures ahead, we learn why Melanie is who she is today. Looking forward to more in book 2

We're introduced to Melanie in chapter 1 she seems like an average teen but this poor girl is haunted by nightmares caused by an extremely violent and traumatic experience. Melanie' s mother is not worthy of the title, and she goes and lives with her dad, a naval commander, until her graduation.

Then comes Josh, your typical car loving guy who's on the lacrosse team!

Katie a real little firecracker and his best friend, Mike's girlfriend. Melanie is introduced as a new student and Katie takes her under her wing and soon enough these 2 girls are joined at the hip.Mike takes on the big brother and protector role, he is also 1 of the 3 only people that know what really happened that tragic day.Josh, the possible love interest is warned off her
but the heart wants what the heart wants!

There are a few tender moments between Josh and Melanie but due to her past and whats happened her fear is that she's not good enough and that nobody will have her.
