Can Tristan save Kendall a second time, and at what cost? Can the price of love overshadow the darkness of her past?
We begin the story with Kendall in high school just receiving devastating news of her parents' death and the background of events that lead up to that point. I absolutely felt for her during this point and just could not even imagine what she was going through. Flash forward 8 years and Kendall finds herself in New York where she "bumps" into Tristan. He seems familiar to her, but she just can't place him. But Tristan has a secret, he knows exactly who Kendall is, and he will do everything in his power to protect her while keeping her in the dark about who he really is. This story is filled with plot twist and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The mystery surrounding SO many aspects of this story is really what keeps it going, if you're like me, you will be DYING to solve the puzzle. I loved the alternating POVs throughout the book and really felt that they added an extra depth to the story and allowed you an inside picture of what each character was thinking and feeling. This is a story filled with emotions, secrets, danger, romance, friendship, and chemistry! Everything you need all wrapped up into one book! You will not regret adding this to your TBR list! Kudos to Cassy Roop for a great story!
