I really enjoyed this story! It captured me and kept me entranced from page one!

From the moment she saw him, she was captivated. Watching fight with himself in an alley only made her want to know more.

Josie has had a horrible past, what she can remember of it anyways. She’s all alone in the world and does whatever she can to make her FEEL something. What better way to feel something than have sex with random strangers and take drugs? She’s let a few people in her bubble, but she only lets them in so far. This all changes though when she sees that man in the alley fighting with himself. She’s drawn to him and is determined to understand him. However, what she wants and what she ends up getting are two totally different things.

Tristan had found his soul mate at a young age, but she was taken from him while he was young as well. A year or so after he lost the love of his life, he found someone that could take the pain away. The only issue was, she got him into doing illegal errands for her father. After this woman breaks his heart, he goes walking and then fights with himself in an alley, this is when he decides he needs to get out of the life his living now and start anew. While he is choosing his new fate, he looks up to find an interesting woman watching him tear himself apart.

After Josie has watched Tristan for months, they finally meet. To Tristan’s utter shock, Josie is the young woman he lost years ago. The woman that everyone thought was dead. Josie has no memory of Tristan or her past, but is extremely interested in finally talking to someone who might know who she used to be. However, she isn’t ready to hear any of this, she is the one that has to be in control and she lost it the minute Tristan mentioned the name she gave up years ago. So she runs to her safe place, in the arms of a stranger and right to the drugs.

Tristan and Josie’s story is very interesting and keeps you guessing as the story moves along. You get to see Tristan and Josie get to know each other once again. But someone from Josie’s past is out on the hunt and will do everything to get rid of her. They think she knows something that can ruin their plans, to bad she has no clue what it is.

With everything that get in their way, will Tristan and Josie be able to finally reconnect and have that happily ever after? Or will the person that is hunting down Josie get to her before they can start their new beginning?

Like I said earlier, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to read more from Season Vining!
