Review: I put this book off for the longest time, because every time I picked it up and took a peak. I never felt motivated to keep reading it. But I am so happy that I had time during my short spring break to take it with me on the many ferry rides I too to Seattle for con. So it gave me many hours to read the whole book through. But personally it only took about three hours from start to finish to get this book done.
I think the best part of this book was the characters, Nick and Stephanie. So far in the series we have only heard a little bit about them and have judged them from that. but from reading this book my opinion completely changed and in the end I ended up really liking them. Although the plot and the character development were a bit boring to me. Although the main plot and topic of this story was very serious and heart breaking , and oh so very real. The only thing that was hard for me was how slow and bland the overall plot was. I still enjoyed the story anyway. I also liked Jennifer L. Armentrout’s slight little hints about some of the other characters who we might be seeing more of in the future books to this series.

Summary: In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…
Some things you just believe in, even if you’ve never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It’s out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she’s got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph’s eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.
Nick’s self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he’s knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she’s building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can’t walk away. Not when she’s the only one who’s ever made him wish for forever . . .
