He was finally home, but guilt weighed heavily on his soul.

She's been broken, running from a past she can't seem to escape. 

Two childhood friends, beaten down by life, find their way back to each other after years of pain and torment. As passion and desire rises, can Jasmine and Angel find solace in each other’s arms? Or, are the shattered pieces of their lives too much for either of them to put back together? 
Join them on an intoxicating ride through life. With ups and down, laughs and tears, they've survived for this long being broken. Can they survive it just a little longer to find their own happy ending?

My Thoughts:

The author was kind enough to send me the book in exchange for an honest review. This book was amazing! I can't believe it's a debut novel. I loved Angel and Jasmine so much; even if they are a little bit stubborn about their relationship. 

Angel just came back from the marines with some guilt that is eating him away, but as soon as he sees Jasmine the demons seem to stay at bay and he almost feels like his old self. In the time Angel was away life has knocked Jasmine down a few time and she hasn't been able to get back up.

This story is very unique. This book kept me up to the wee hours of the night, but I just couldn't put it down; I had to know what was going to happen between Angel and Jasmine. Also this book is told in various perspectives so, that also had part in keeping me up all night; since I wanted to find out what happened between the rest of the characters in the book.  This book had me laughing, crying, angry and swooning over all the hot guys. The book ended with the perfect cliffhanger that leaves you craving the second book. I did find Angel to be a little possessive towards Jasmine, but Jasmine is not the kind of girl to take crap so, it all evens out. I really enjoyed this book and I'm glad the author contacted me. I’m currently reading the second one so I will have the review up soon.
