Reviewed by Kelly.

I don’t even know where to begin. I really enjoyed this story. There was a question that started at the very beginning and you want the answer right then and keep reading and you get tiny clues all along but I so did NOT see the answer at all until the end. I really didn’t see it coming!

We have two people with their own horrible stories and very different life experiences growing up. Knox having a good family growing up and Jasmine who came from a well to do family but with absent and controlling parents. Jasmine is quick to get away from them after she graduates with her trust fund and never turns back. Knox had a good family but lost his parents 5 years back.

Knox wants revenge and finds Jasmine thinking to get revenge with getting her to fall for him and ripping her life apart. We don’t know why he wants revenge; we only know it has something to do with his family. But he didn’t expect to fall for her.

Jasmine doesn’t want anything to do with Knox at first. They obviously both feel the chemistry between them but she feels the need to keep away. She gives in and they both fall fast for each other.

Rex, Knox’s brother, keeps telling Knox to stop with his plan. Knox goes hot and cold with Jasmine. He doesn’t know what to do. His need for revenge seems to lessen as he falls for Jasmine. And then he wonders how to tell her what he really knows about her and his origninal plans. Because then what will she do; can or will she forgive him.

Rex and his girlfriend, Summer, and Knox, Jasmine and Jeremy, and a few others go to Myrtle Beach for July 4th weekend. There Jasmine falls for him and the rest of the close knit friends. They are like a family of their own and they all have a good time and enjoy each other’s company. We even meet a little girl who thinks Jasmine is Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. So cute, I can’t help but love stories with family in them. We also see that Knox has a romantic side when he takes her to the botanical gardens. I LOVED that part!!

The ending gives us the insight into the next book with Jeremy’s story. I. Can’t. Wait.

That’s all I want to tell you, you really need to experience it for yourself. But you will fall in love with all of them too.

There is graphic sex and language.
