This is Sarah's story. Its not an easy one to read but it's hers. At the age of eighteen she made the decision to start her life over. She was going to hitch her way to from New York to California. She didn't know what she was going to do once she got there but she just knew she couldn't stay where she was. She had to run, like she has been since she was fourteen. She learned how to numb herself at a young age and how to light a match at an even younger one. Fire was her addiction. Her calmness, and the only thing she felt anything for. Well, until she met Kyle...
She had her plan. But when an older man that for some reason wanted to help her without payment, her life was flipped upside down. He actually cared about her well-being and not what she could do for him while he was on the road. He brought her into his home. And when she first laid eyes on his son, Kyle, she felt safe. He didn't exactly want her around but soon, he wouldn't want her to leave. They found their rhythm during that first day. She actually felt comfortable, and could see herself being part of the family for the summer. But the minute she felt happiness, she saw him...Brad. The family member that could rip her apart.
Brad was the older brother that got whatever he wanted. Who ever he wanted. The cop of the family. The one that went to college instead of staying on the farm. But, he didn't have Kyle's kind eyes. His were darker. She wanted to run like she always had before but she wanted to stay a part of this family. She felt wanted. She never felt loved but if she ever could, she knew this family could do it. She just had to stay away from Brad for a few days while he visited. Easier said than done...
Like I said, this is Sarah's story. She writes her story and that is what you will be reading. It's not a sexy, lovey-dovey kind of story. It's a story of survival. It's a story about her scars, the ones that you can see and the ones hidden away. It's a dark and twisted one but there are layers to it. Kyle and Sarah are young but not immature. She has worked hard at not falling completely apart. And he has worked hard for his family and that is who is most important to him. Will Sarah be part of that family in the end or will she run?
Sarah is one tough f- cookie!!! I would be in the corner of my room in a ball rocking back and forth if I was her. She might think she is broken but she is only bent. She might not believe she deserves happiness but she most certainly does. And Kyle...oh Kyle, he has such a big heart. And he definitely has his swoon-worthy moments.
Overall...it's a unique, dark, addictive read. I will warn you there are subject matters that might not be for you. Such as there is sex but it's not sexy.
“You’re sweet and all, but you need to know this: I’m one of the bad seeds.” He scoffed.
“Nah, you just haven’t been given the right soil to grow in, is all.”
Yet again, I had become someone to overlook; I was someone not worth speaking to. A mystery no one cared enough to try and unlock. I had become the garbage yet again.
Sometimes when you gamble, even if you win, you lose.
My heart broke for Sarah! I wanted to reach right into the book and just give her a hug! Then you have Kyle. His heart of gold and loyalty to everyone he loves just warms my heart. Their story is an amazing ride I'm glad I went on! I like the ones that aren't all smooth sailing. The ones that as people say, "can be hard to read." THOSE are the ones that keep you up reading all night because you just HAVE to find out what happens next and cannot quit until you do. And while it's fiction, it could be real...those are the ones that are great!
This book is full of emotions - I went through a rollercoaster of emotions - crying, sick, sad, disgusted, anger.
A beautiful and raw novel. Every reader should give this book a try and read it - it is absolutely worth reading!
Perfect for readers of dark romance.
Sarah is an amazing character. She is troubled and has her demons. She's a pyromaniac and is drawn to the flame. She's drifting through life when she meet a trucker named Al. Al is amazing and has a huge heart. He bringing her home to his farm to help for the summer. Al has two sons Luke and Brad. Luke is working on the farm. He's sweet and nice. You can feel the pull between them. Brad shows up. Brad is very surprising. I thought he was going to be more like Luke. Brad definitely surprised me. With Brad the story takes a different turn then I thought it would.
This one is a definite one click. It's a different and unique story that will not disappoint.
