"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

We are first introduced to Aria, who is a ballet dancer, trying to heal and move on from her abusive past. She is insecure about herself and when it comes to men, there is no way she is going to let her heart or face, be broken again. She feels she must not let anyone have control over her.
“But with Gavin, I know it would be my choice. It would be making love, and that makes me both happy and terrified at the same time.”
Gavin is a billionaire CEO, who knows what betrayal is like. With his own broken past, he isn’t looking for anything special with anyone. When these two meet, wow! Oh wow! But Aria being the insecure and damaged woman she is doesn’t believe everything Gavin says. She can’t even believe her own feelings since they happened so fast. Luckily, Gavin doesn’t give up. Even right from the beginning he tells her how he feels.
"You have such an effect on me. When I’m away from you, all I think about are your emerald green eyes and soft, vibrant smile . I want to be with you in every way possible . I don’t want you to do this with anyone else, just me."
This story was an easy to read and easy to follow story. There was a lot of sex, not too graphic though. I really love how open these two were with each other. I also loved when they were patient with each other. They truly did bring out the best in each other. I love how Gavin was alpha-ish. He wasn’t giving up on Aria but he wasn’t over the top demanding either.
While Amanda Kaitlyn is a new to me author, she apparently knows what she is doing!
I had high hopes for this book. It expected a lot of drama, hot sex, and fierce love. The author definitely jumps into the love between these two instantly. They build a life of trust and love easily. A little too easily. I felt the author could have built the love a little more instead of creating an insta-love. I'm not sure a girl who was severely beaten and low self esteem would fall so easily into a relationship and love even in the best of circumstances. I liked the characters but I felt there was too much sweetness to them. It didn't seem natural. Like the author tried to hard to show their love and affection. Some of the time line jumped around. I felt like she either said one time frame then changed it. Or went from one scene to another without a slight pause or intro to it. There was also a lot of repetitive words and phrases to describe scenes.
I did however, love the idea of the story and the issues they had. An ex willing to go as far as needed to scare and take back what's his. Insecurities all women feel, and heartbreak that can be related too in some way. And even though the love between these two was too sweet, I did like that they each loved each other with respect and honesty.
Aria has had her share of heartbreak and fear. When she first sees Gavin, she is instantly attracted. Can she put herself and her heart out there again? Gavin also has had his fair share of heartache but as soon as he sees Aria, he knows that she will be his.
When Aria was in high school, she fell for the football quarterback, Bryce. They were together for quite awhile. The longer they were together, the more abusive he got, until one day, it went entirely too far and Aria ended up in the hospital due to her injuries. Bryce was arrested and she would be safe from him. When she sees Gavin for the first time, she is shocked that her body is reacting to him. Especially after the trauma she has been through.
Aria is a ballet dancer and is finally getting her life back on track after the tragic accident where she lost her brother. He calls her Beautiful and he makes her feel that way. Gavin is a billionaire and he is also afraid to open his heart again. He had his heart broken by his ex. He is hoping that Aria is with him for him and not what his money can buy. When Aria’s past comes back to haunt her, Gavin vows to protect her with his life.
Can they both overcome their painful pasts and fall in love.
This book had me loving it from page 1. There were pastes that were difficult to read. I loved this book and I can not wait to see what Ms. Kaitlyn has in store for us with the rest of the series. I can not wait.
