For twenty-three-year-old Rebecca O’Connor, there’s only one reason to live…her little sister, Raina.
Through years of growing up in an abusive home, Raina and Becca have formed an unbreakable bond…until Raina falls in love and elopes.
For the first time in her life, Becca is on her own. After breaking up with her boyfriend, she is homeless, broke, and she’s losing her grip on her life.
Then she meets James Rush, a shy guy with sharp blue eyes and an invisible lure for her heart…
Becca has always had to be the strong one. But the deeper James pulls her under, the more she wants to succumb to her vicious attraction. The fact that he’s deaf might make him that much more desirable. At least he appreciates beauty.
But James is going nowhere fast…
A twenty-two-year-old college student, James can’t shake the feeling his life is dull and uneventful. He may be alive, but he’s not living, as he hides in his introverted shell to protect himself from a past that left him empty, neglected, and abused.
When James meets Becca, their futures are forever altered. She’s a black-haired, tattooed, confident bartender who immediately hexes him with her charm. When he’s with Becca, his past stays in the past.
Caught in each other’s web of safety and desire, it’s only a matter of time before they are confronted with the one task too terrifying to face…
Letting go of the past, and daring to love.
Be still my beating heart, I’m in love! And his name is James Rush. Praise baby Jesus, James Rush!! God, that’s a sexy freaking name!! I was so excited to get my hands on James, I fangirled out when I got the ARC. He got my attention in My Sweet Demise, and just didn’t get out of my head. I really wanted to get to know more about, James. Wow, this man ruin me!
This book is still on my mind, days later. Hell, I’m still picking up pieces of my broke heart! This book drags you through some heavy, dark sh*t!! It brings you low but god is the high worth it!! Jame’s and Becca’s story is one that everyone needs to experience. I’d find myself stealing moments in the day to just get a nibble more.
Becca was such a lost pup. She is at a crossroads and it’s time for her to pony up. She is alone for the first one in her life. No more hiding behind Raina or men. She has to do her now. And boy does she pick a winner winner chicken dinner, when she gets her man eating claws into him. And James, god what can you say about James? He is… beautiful. Not just on the outside (Mmm so beautiful!) but he is all thing hearts and flowers on the inside. And he would give it all up for just a moment in the sun with Becca!!
When you discover the past these two are carrying on their backs like a hunchback, it’s not wonder they are lost in their heads. They both think so little of them selves but so much for each other. They truly were better together. And I’m so glad that James and Becca found their happily ever after, I couldn’t think of two people who deserve it more. I only wish we got more, like an epilogue. She wraps it all up beautifully. But it’s a birds eye view version (which I’ll gladly take, please and thank you) I’d love a nice long detailed one, but I think it’s only cause I don’t want to let these two go. I can only hope that the amazing Ms. Vanderpool gives us more from this series.
I loved myself some Kent, and didn’t think it got any better then ‘My Sweet Demise’, and then I met James. This is one of my top 5 reads of the year this far, and I don’t see James leaving his post anytime soon. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to see what’s to experience the pure amazing-ness that is, James Rush (did you shiver at his name?).
