Synopsis: Natalie Carmichael thought that Bryson Daniels would be her world. She planned a bright future with him, cherished four years with him, and couldn't have been any happier, but during graduation night, all of that changes.
Natalie walks in on Bryson cheating on her. One month after catching him in the act, she finally decides to make an escape by leaving for Florida.
She wants to start over, have fun, and be free while also finding a way to mend her broken heart but when she meets Nolan Young, her single-life escapade doesn't last for very long. She tries to stay clear of Nolan and his desires but it's impossible for her. Nolan will do everything that he can to have her as his own, but will Natalie accept Nolan along with the problems of his past? Will she let someone else into her heart that may be even worse than Bryson?
For Natalie, Nolan will be something completely new to her. And for them both, their desires will be completely hard to resist.
What an awesome read! Natalie goes to a party after her high school graduation and finds the one thing that anyone would dread: The love of your life cheating on you with another girl. After Bryson breaks her heart, Natalie decides that a change of scenery is in order and moves to hot and spicy Miami to live with her friend, Harper.
On her way to Harper’s house, she literally almost runs over this incredibly hot guy and luckily, that isn’t the only encounter that they have! Natalie doesn’t want to love again, but this guy, is very determined to try and have a relationship with her and make it work. Nolan tries desperately to be someone that Natalie needs and someone that she can love. This certainly makes it “hard to resist” him.
I enjoyed Natalie’s character. You could connect with her easily, because who hasn’t had their heart broken into a million pieces? I think that her character evolves in so many ways during this book that it really grabs the reader’s attention because it’s just not about love, its trust, trust in yourself, trusting your heart, and taking a leap to trust someone else again after being cheated on, especially when Nolan doesn’t have the best past either. She goes from being a teenager in love to a woman exploring her desires and finding that maybe there is someone meant for you to love no matter how hard it seems to be to recover from losing your “first love”
If you are looking for a new book to read, that’s full of great writing and steamy scenes, add this one to your list!!!
