I received this book with the understanding that I would leave a voluntary and honest review.
In this book we meet Derek Summers and Jenna Collins. Jenna has just gotten away from her abusive boyfriend after he put her in the hospital with a concussion and 2 broken ribs. She knows this is her chance so when she gives her statement to the cops she goes on the run. What she doesn't know is not if but when he will find her. Jenna lands in a rundown house next to Derek who is the neighborhood mean guy. The thing is he has the most adorable little boy that everyone seems to want to be around. Jenna isn't looking to get into anything with a new man but there is something about Derek that makes her take notice. Can she stay one step ahead of her ex or will this be the time he gets her? Also is there more to Derek or should she just give up before she begins?
Derek has just gotten out of a bitter divorce. The best thing to come out of it was his son Owen, but he knows Owen is hurting because of it all in his own way. He has limited the number of people around his son and this causes a problem when his regular babysitter can't stay with Owen while he works his night job. So when the only woman in the neighborhood he seems to trust suggests Jenna he isn't sure but is willing to give her a chance until he can get someone new. Will he be able to keep his son safe and happy or will he find that he just has to much going on? Will adding Jenna to the mix make things better or worse?
This is a great story about finding out that vulnerability isn't always a bad things. Sometimes you have to open yourself up to new people to find someone amazing for your life. This book has many twists and turns that I would like to tell you all about but don't want to ruin it for any other readers. I will say this book will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone.
