Two years ago, I watched my girlfriend die.
We chased the high, night and day, searching for that magical fix that would cure the pain. But in the end, the escape she lived for took her from me.
Now, sober and rebuilding the life I almost destroyed, the last thing I need is another beautiful project dragging me down. Especially a Greek goddess with a sharp tongue and a drinking problem. But hidden inside Katarina's charcoal gaze is a broken soul crying out for help. Like a true addict, I can't say no.
Maybe if I can save her, it will make up for my past. But her salvation could also be my ruin.
Two broken souls who find one another.
This is my first book by this author and it was pretty damn good.
The story was addictive, the same way the characters struggled with their own addictions I couldn't get enough.
I read page after page with hope for these two lost souls.
Kat was a woman who has no self-worth, drinking, partying, a string of one night stands and nothing to show for her life but misery and nights of more alcohol to numb the pain.
Kat is a very much the fiery Greek character when she first meets Chase.
Following a one night stand, the guy promises to take her home, when he makes a stop off at the garage were Chase works, Kat is unimpressed with how long the guy is taking and with Kat needing to get to work ends up in an argument with one-night stand guy. After being manhandled Kate takes the guy down leaving him with a busted nose, resulting in chase taking her home.
"She's a mess of gorgeous chaos"
"She grew on me like fungus then blossomed before my very eyes"
Chase is a guy who at first seems too good to be true, a night in shining armor or Overalls, he sees something in Kat he wants to fix. Chase is sweet, charming lives and cares for his Gran, see, too good to be true. Chase is a hot mechanic but has his own ghosts and a past he is trying to move on from.
Both characters have heart-breaking pasts and brighter futures they are clawing their way too. Chase helps Kat, they become friend's before lovers and the journey is heartwarming, doesn't lack drama or hotness and also reaches a hea which had me surprised at finding a second book following this one?
"The pain that burns deep in her soul - it's the same pain in mine. We are cut from the same cloth. Children of the moon. One body ripped in two. Destined to find each other"
I guess the grass doesn't stay green which is disappointing to discover, but as story's go I enjoyed this journey, would recommend it and you will too if you aren't put off by Kat's promiscuous ways at the beginning and enjoy a story were the characters go from hardship, heartache to finally getting on with life and finding love.
Onto book two
