This is a very intense book that has some heavy issues. It is for adults over 18.

This is a story of two college aged students with many secrets. These secrets have a lot of abuse. Cade comes from a broken family with more than one issue! Winter has a loving family but she has a horrible secret she has kept for years.

They both leave home to go to Paris for the summer for a study abroad. For Winter, French is already a second language but Cade is struggling. Winter goes there to learn more about love for her love of writing so she can become a better romance author. Cade goes to get away from his family and to learn more about architecture.

They see each other in the airport where all the students get together for the flight. There is a hilarious and embarrassing scene there that Cade witnesses at security. I had several moments in this book of intense laughter. Cade witnesses several of these. I am giggling just remembering them.

Here is that piece from the book at the security point at the airport where the agent is going thru her carry on.....
My jaw drops when he pulls out a gallon sized plastic baggie and dumps the contents—items I’ve never seen before in my life—onto the counter. Holding up a pair of red G-string panties with a matching bra, if that slip of silk can be called a bra, and a handful of—oh my God—condoms? He smirks at me and reads aloud the note that’s in the baggie. “Winter, have some fun this summer. Here’s a starter sex kit to help you out. All my love, your favorite cousin, Daring.” I want to die. I want the floor to open up and swallow me, or lightning to strike me dead. I want them to arrest me, just so I can get away from the dozen of eyes taking in my humiliation......
Anything to divert attention from the most embarrassing moment of my entire life. And then I remember the hot cowboy. Who’s standing behind me. Who heard and saw everything.

Cade and Winter sit next to each other on the plane and find each other interesting and talk. Cade is intrigued with Winter and protects her. And Winter finds that she is attracted to him too.

In Paris, Winter shares a room with one of her friends she has known forever. Jenifer has some issues with finding men for one night stands and men who beat her. Winter goes with her several times to parties and clubs and each time something bad happens. Fortunately, Cade seems to be the knight in shining Armour there to save the day. Winter is too sweet and forgives Jenifer over and over. Winter really is an optimistic and upbeat person always looking for the good.

There is one thing that bothered me about Winter’s secret but I can’t say it because it would show a spoiler. But it has to do with intimacy.

Cade and Winter get sucked into each other and eventually give into their desires. They are really good for each other. Yet they don’t share all their secrets. But time will always reveal things.

Cade and Winter help each other heal their hearts and families and break the cycles that have them held prisoner.

But at what cost?

Get out your tissues, because if you don’t cry, something is wrong with you!
