When you’ve lived your life as a criminal…
When you’ve done unspeakable things …
When your soul has become dark and stained…
The path to redemption begins where you least expect it.
Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world.
Little by little, she claws through his shell.
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more.
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed.
When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?
I have to start out by saying. I loved Jane! She was a great female character! She was a super sweet person with a great personality. I loved all of her movie quotes. I can see how she could really mess with Kyle. She lives a quite safe life on a teachers salary. She is an amazing artist and an all around great neighbor. Kyle is not prepared for her. She really dug her heals into the ground when she wanted him. What Jane doesn't know is that Kyle isn't really who he says he is. He has a pretty sorted past. A past that he must keep secret or he will put his life and everyone he cares about at risk.
I loved how Jane not so subtly goes after Kyle. He pushes her away pretty hard but, Jane is relentless. She is so attracted to his bad boy exterior. They have a chemistry even if it isn't always a two way street. Kyle tries very hard to keep Jane away but, he has very little luck. She knows what she wants. It take longer then I wanted for Kyle to show some positive feelings towards Jane but, it does happen. He needs someone like her more then he knows. His past has left Kyle broken and he's not the man he used to be. Jane could be the missing piece that puts Kyle back together again.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick fun read. It was a fun romantic read and one of my favorite from Sawyer Bennett thus far. It's time to start picking up her books!
