Jake Lanza is one of Riverdale New York’s favorite sons. He owns a tattoo parlor in the small upstate town and prides himself on being a fun-loving, live by the seat of your pants type of guy. He has everything he wants in life, a thriving business, a great family and a best friend with whom he could never live without.
Cara Sloane weaved her way into Jake’s life when they were fifteen years old. After her life fell apart at such a young age, Jake helped her heal, and began to pick up the pieces of her fallen life. His unconventional ways slowly had him becoming the anchor in her life.
Now fourteen years later Jake begins to see Cara in a new light. The things he thought he never wanted, he suddenly began to yearn for. The only problem was they were both too frightened to lose the greatest love either of them has ever known. Can Jake convince Cara there is more for them than just a friendship? Is he willing to take that gamble himself?
This is not what I expected at all. We meet Jake and Cara. Cara has had a hell of an upbringing. Anyone looking at her history would think she is damaged goods but she’s not. She’s a wonderful character and Jake’s equal in every way.
Their love is intense, passionate, beautiful and painful. They have waited years to come together and as life cruels it’s horrid fate, time is not on their side.
I can’t give too much away with this story as I’m an avoider of spoilers but it’s an intense plot and the ending will have readers divided. Have faith in Bosco’s writing – she is going to make you feel things you never thought you would feel.
All the characters are entertaining and add value to the story – there seems to be a trend of late where characters are added to help pad the story out – this is not the case here. This is the first of this authors work that I have read and highly recommend it. My other recommendation is having a pint of ice cream, tissues and your loved ones on speed dial. You are going to need it.
I was given a copy of this book for my honest opinion.
