"This book caught my attention right away! I was so interested in who this main character was, her story, how she would fight against her situation. I was not disappointed at all!"
"I loved this story so hard"
From the Author
Ridge looks back at me, and the fury on his face melts away as he strides across the room. He comes around the back of the couch, cupping my face in his hands. "Hey, shh. Shh, it's okay. They're gone. You're okay."
I'm still sucking in air like a drowning victim. I have tunnel-vision now, black edges sneaking in around my eyesight. Even his voice can't cut through this. I'm going to die of a heart attack, right here on the back of his couch like I'm a damn cat.
"Look at me." Ridge says gruffly, breaking through the rush of noise in my head. I obey, clutching at his hands, which still hold my face. "You're having a panic attack. What helps you through this?"
A part of me recognizes that he knows this is normal for me. He knows I've done this before, again and again, my mind attempting to deal with the abuse that's become a normal part of my existence. And his perceptive gaze lays bare all of my secrets. It strikes me to my core. Someone knows the depth of my scars, and he wants to know what helps me deal with them.
My teeth chatter as I struggle to reply. "W-w-wat-ter."
He doesn't say anything else. Suddenly, I'm being lifted in his arms as if I'm just a child. I wrap my own arms around his neck, burying my face in his skin. There's that scent, the same woodsy pine scent I woke up to. I breathe it in, my tears soaking his t-shirt as he carries me through the house.
I keep my eyes closed and my face against the warmth of his skin, focusing on his scent because somehow it helps with the panic. So I only realize we're in the bathroom when I hear the snick of a shower curtain being opened. Then Ridge sets me down on my feet on a soft rug.
But I can't step away.
The thought of moving away from him sends another rush of panic through me, so I cling tighter. I don't even know quite why, but he's become my anchor in this storm, and I'm certain that if I lose my hold on him, I'll drown.
Ridge doesn't push me away. He doesn't mock me for my weakness or leave me to face the demons howling in my head on my own. Instead, he wraps an arm around my waist to hold me in place as he leans forward and turns on the water.

Romance: 2.5-3/5, it’s still growing, but there are not many affectionate scene to amount to much honest romance, right now.
Heat: 3/5, This is book one after all.
Pacing: It’s Medium Fast, I wished some quality time moments were expanded for example I wish the fun pond scene was a little more detailed so it didn’t seem so short. Some moments she talked about, I wish were actual scenes in the book rather then be suddenly put as past tensed, I wish I would ‘seen & watched’ those moments.
Relationship Type: RH > Reverse Harem MMFMM
This is an interesting book, I hope it does get a bit more detailed and slows down a bit more to enjoy everything in the next book.
With the way it ended, I’m really interested to what’ll happen!!!
I couldn't help it lol
I thought I knew what to expect with this book. I just wanted a quick PNR series with some emotional development. My expectations were lowered to adjust to a quick series.
This appeared to fit, or so I thought.
There were too many wasted lines over-explaining basic information. Useless details were chosen over more depth. For example, how many times, in different scenes, does the news of the FMC wearing too big sweatpants or shirts needs to be detailed to the audience? Once would suffice, by acknowledging the size of the owner of said clothing; then telling of her difficulty in securing the clothes to her body. Yet, we are constantly reminded of the ill-fitting garments at every physical action the FMC does. I just don't see the importance of such repetition when there isn't enough care given to world & emotional building.
Unlike the delicacy of aging cheese, I doubt this series will get better further along.
I may revisit this again, to give it a 2nd chance, after my pessimism for it goes away.

I like Callie's character. She's a survivor and she's a strong woman. I also enjoyed the male characters as well, though in this book I felt Trystan was a bit left out.
I'm dying to know what's happening next so I will definitely read book 2!
