See My Review Below!!!




The first time I saw him was at a bar called Ophelia’s on a misty Thursday night. I was there to drown my sorrows after a trying day, he was there to escape the storm. After a brief yet incredibly cruel exchange, the handsome stranger bolted before I had a chance to tell him off. Incensed and three cocktails deep, I followed him out the door, determined to give the audacious Adonis a piece of my mind.
Tearing after him in heels and barely able to keep up in the freezing rain, I ended my chase when I realized where he was going.
They say never to judge someone unless you know their story.
I never could have anticipated his…
And I never could have anticipated the way our paths would cross again—or that I would one day find myself falling for a man with a hollow cavity where his heart should be, a man as callous as he was beautiful, as complicated as he was mesmeric.
They say never to judge someone unless you know their story.
This one’s ours.

My Review…

Oh my me! This story is got all sorts of twists, all sorts of secrets and I enjoyed falling down the rabbit hole that Ms. Renshaw created!

First off, one of my favorite all-time movies is “All of Me” and this story is so reminiscent of that!  It doesn’t hit you right away, but as you make your way through I saw it and I fell in love even harder!

This is the story of Bennett and Astaire, two strangers that meet and there is no love lost between them at the first.

Astaire is amazing! She has had a tumultuous childhood, but she didn’t let that define her. She finds the silver lining in all things.  She is the epitome of grace, compassion, and love.

Bennett is such a jaded fellow.  He keeps everyone at a distance, even when he obviously needs someone to be close.  Luckily, Astaire fights to see the good in him, his gooey center as she says.  The family dynamic that Bennett has is absolutely dysfunctional and to have him turn out the way that he did was a miracle in itself.

The side stories, the secrets, the lies and the love that grows between Alastair and Bennett will keep you enthralled and turning pages until the very end!!
