I’d never met anyone quite like Mathias Wade.
He was brooding and arrogant, but I loved him anyway.
Together we were wild and uncontained—a hurricane raging.
Then I had to leave, and words were exchanged that could never be undone.
But now I was back, and Mathias better watch out, because this bitch wasn’t finished with him.
Game. Set. Match.

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**
Wow, the leap this series took from Young Adult right into New Adult is fantastic! I am really loving this series even more.
In Last To Know I was very curious about Mathias and why he was so dark and moody. I was even more curious about him when we got some of his story from his twin brother Maddox. I was super curious when he flipped his wig over just the mention of Remy...the girl he dated in high school that apparently ended badly.
So, when I got to start this book and it was Remy's POV I knew that this book would be pretty great. I knew that with Mathias' personality that it took a really specific kind of woman to be able to deal with him. By know that I knew that their relationship would be pretty explosive and it was both inside and outside the bedroom. I loved that even though Mathias started to change in ways that shocked everyone he still kept his surly attitude. I enjoyed the dynamics of their relationship and I really like seeing it grow.
This book is so much more that the first one. There is so much emotion, pain, love and forgiveness in this book and I am now addicted to the boys of Willow Creek and their ladies. I can not wait for what is to come in the next book.
I jumped up on the counter and he moved to stand in front of me, bracing his hands beside my hips. I kicked my legs against the cabinets like a little kid as he stared down at me intensely.
I wasn’t sure what he was looking for in my eyes, but he must have found it, because he cupped my cheek and leaned in.
“This feels like when we were younger,” he whispered. “Like no time at all has passed.” His words echoed my previous thoughts.
I closed my eyes, feeling his breath fan across my lips.
God, I’d missed him.
It didn’t seem possible to miss someone I’d grown to hate, but I did.
I was pretty sure that when someone like Mathias came into your life they were impossible to forget.
He was like the sun, burning so bright that even once he was gone I was still blinded.
“Did you ever miss me?” I asked. “Even once?” I held my breath, waiting for him to explode—because that was Mathias. He could be nice one minute and an asshole the next. I wouldn’t put it
past him to kick me out for my question. Instead he surprised me by leaning in impossibly
closer and nuzzling my neck. “Always.”
