This book was an interesting read. I wasn’t sure what I was going to get into, but it sure wasn’t what the book I was thinking about. Holy hell some of the stuff that Veronica went thru was absolutely heart breaking. Though at times she seems pretty whiney, you definitely see her as a strong woman to do what she did.
Veronica made a bet with the wrong person 4 years ago and ever sense then her live has been nothing put pain. But after she finds out she’s pregnant she decides she needs to leave her situation now to help save her unborn child. This is when everything goes to shit.
After witnessing a fatal incident, Veronica heads to the only place she ever really felt at home. Back to her grandmothers. This is where she meets up with the Summer boys (who are all unfairly drop dead gorgeous) after 4 long years. This is also when she see Chase, the lost love of her life, since she broke up with him.
While Chase and the other Summer boys try to drag information from Veronica, they are horrified to know that she went through that and they weren’t there to help her. Chase is determined to keep Veronica and her unborn at his side. He’ll do ANYTHING to prevent Veronica from going back to where she was before.
Veronica’s past finds her and is looking to take her back and show her how much of a naughty girl she’s been. She’s petrified, and this is when the Summer boys and even little ole grandma steps in.
Will they be able to keep Veronica, her baby and everyone safe? Or will Veronica end up going back to what she ran away from?
I really enjoyed reading this book! It was hard for me to put this down so that I could do actual work. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book with Trey Summers..
