Lucas is the stranger who saved Jacqueline from an attack by a fellow student - she'd never noticed him before then, and now he's everywhere. But can Jacqueline trust him - or will the secrets he's hiding come between them?
I received a physical copy of this copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I'm not going to lie, the cover of this book really draws you in. You just know it's going to contain some romance.
So when reading the synopsis, I was also intrigued.
I really liked the storyline. I thought it was well written. I was drawn into the story from the first page, and I wanted to know more.
Character wise, there's only a few, which is nice as I think the fewer the characters, the easy it is to remember who said what, etc.
You have the main character Jacqueline, or 'Jackie', and I really admired her. She was a strong character and told the story well. Lucas we know nothing about. He keeps appearing in Jackie's life, and you're just like "Who is he?", at the same time as secretly wanting him. So you want to know more about him as he is very mysterious.
Then you have Kennedy, who is Jackie's ex. He's basically a jerk in my opinion. He made his mistake. (And his reason for breaking up with Jackie is pathetic, let me tell you!).
Buck is a right old dick. What he did to Jackie was disgusting, and I just wanted to hit him. He's a real slimy character.
So in this story, Lucas comes across as a knight in shining armour at times. The romance between Lucas and Jackie was very cute; they go really well together.
What I liked about Lucas, was that he wasn't perfect. He has secrets and he has flaws. I hate reading about guys who get or have everything they want. It's nice to see someone not so amazing be the main guy in the story.
Because of the secrets we discover about Lucas, I ended up feeling sympathy towards him. No one should have gone through what he did, and I admire him for staying strong. Jackie is also a good character for helping him be the better person.
The ending I thought was really sweet.
Overall, I really enjoyed the story. That is why I gave it five stars, and I definitely recommend to all. I was in the mood for a guilty pleasure, and I'm so glad I gave this a read.
If you want to read a guilty pleasure book with romance, family secrets, etc, then definitely give this one a read.
Happy reading =)
