*This is a full-length, STANDALONE novel with a HEA. NO cliffhanger.*
Dani Cohen knows Damon is trouble the second he walks in during senior year. He has bad boy written all over him. . .from his proud smirk to his perfectly toned abs. He is arrogant, intense, and rebellious.
Dani has her future all planned out. She’s not the type to fall for a bad boy, no matter how panty-melting his grin is or how shamelessly he flirts. But something about Damon draws her in, awakening a desire she’s never felt. Slowly, she uncovers the secrets Damon hides: underneath his arrogance lies a tortured soul, his flirting smile masks despair.
Damon arrives in Dani’s life against his will. Carrying the scars of a dark past and facing an uncertain future, he knows he should stay away from her, but can’t. Her innocence consumes him, as does the desire to indulge in the passion igniting deep inside her.
An all-consuming bond blooms into a reckless love. But when mistakes from the past threaten their already fragile future, can their love survive?
A steamy and emotional full-length, standalone love story from the USA Today Bestselling author of Withering Hope.

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**
I love that I got to finally get Dani's full story. I have been so curious about her since book one and I was extremely curious with book two. Her rebellious streak had definitely caught my attention in both previous books and after reading her book I can see why she started to act out after the life she had before the entrance of Damon.
It irked me that it took a bad boy to get her parents attention and it irked me that the little ripple it caused in her life made her parents do something as drastic and make sure he wasn't apart of her life. BUT I do see how it bettered the both of them. They both found things about themselves that they needed to find out separately but it was things that they could on know from having known each other. I hope that makes sense.
I loved Damon's devil may care attitude and I really loved his confidence and especially his ability to resist the usual temptations of teenage boys. I also really liked his immediate reaction to Dani and that it seemed to be reciprocated on her end as well. I really liked them both together and the ease at which their friendship and eventually relationship grew. They both were able to talk to each other and open up to each other and I liked that it seemed to be at a time when they each needed it most.
This is another great addition to this series and I especially LOVED the epilogue!
