Life can be cruel. People can be ruthless and evil. The world can be cold and uninviting. No one knows these things better than Josephine Geroux. By her own definition, she is a twenty-five year old “nobody with nothing,” and she is content to stay that way. Growing up an orphan has made her tough and indifferent to the people around her until she meets a strangely familiar man with a face that haunts her for reasons she can’t understand.
Despite the pain that will inevitably ensue, she makes it her mission to discover what parts of her tragic puzzle she is missing. On her journey to discovering why the she feels an alarming connection to an absolute stranger, her greatest fear is reawakening the demons and darkness from the past that will surely overtake her if she lets her guard down.
Little does Josephine know that the past should be the least of her worries. She is toying with a man who has already broken her heart once. She just doesn’t realize it.
Although she makes it a point to avoid interactions with others, Josephine’s life becomes entangled with the enigmatic stranger. Before she realizes it, she has given herself over to the one person who is close enough to wreck her.
I loved this book but it did have the same bombshell as "Ten Tiny Breaths" however that book is more of a YA book no hot sex until this book. I love Josephine she is a BA and I feel sorry for her just the same since she has no one - not even a friend beside Sutton thankfully she had him. What's not to love about Damon really she is super hot, rich & just a nice guy. He sweeps in and breaks down Josephine's walls and she finally has someone who loves her. Lot's of hot steamy sex! Now the ending well it's a heart breaker! I am glad I put off reading this book since book 2 "Restore Me" comes out March 27, 2013!.
