We all have secrets.
Secrets well buried.
Until we find the one soul who makes the burden of such secrets just that little bit easier to bear.
Lexington “Lexi” Hart is a senior at the University of Alabama. Surrounded by her best friends, her loving family and having fulfilled her life-long dream of making the Crimson Tide cheer squad, everything is going exactly as she always dreamed it would. But beneath her happy exterior, demons lurk, threatening to jeopardize everything Lexi has worked to achieve. When events in her life become too much to cope with, Lexi finds herself spiraling down into the realm of her biggest fear. Lexi falls hard, victim once again to the only thing that can destroy her and, on the way, finds herself falling straight into the dangerous tattooed arms of a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.
Austin Carillo, starting Wide Receiver for the Alabama Crimson Tide, must get picked in this year’s NFL draft. He needs it. His brothers need it. Most importantly, his mother desperately needs it. Brought up in a world where the poor are forgotten, the sick are left to fend for themselves and no hero miraculously appears to pull you out of hell, Austin had no other choice but to make a living on the wrong side of the law—until football offered Austin the break to get his life back on track. But when a family tragedy drags him back into the clutches of the gang he believed he had left far behind, Austin finds himself falling. Falling back into criminal ways and falling deep into a suffocating darkness. Until a troubled yet kindred spirit stumbles across his path, where Austin quickly finds he is falling for a young woman, a young woman who might just have the power to save him from his worst enemy: himself.

My review :
Dear Tillie Cole,
I’m writing this because i wanna thank you for this beautiful, heartbreaking, overwhelming story.
This series totally captured me! Your writing goes straight to the heart.
I love everything from the beginning to the end, and it’s something very rare nowadays.
I wasn’t expecting all this wave of feelings!I went through happiness, sadness,fear,hope and a lot more.
The journey of Lexi and Austin was so amazing,the story of two fractured souls aching inside who are hidding behind a mask.
Lexi disease make my heart hurts and i was so aching for her and trying to fight against the voice in her head.
Austin hasn’t the best background and his life is so tough!
I wonder how they’re going to be together with all of that stuff around.
They have had many hardships to overcome. The more they were separated, the more they were sinking in their issues.
I think your experience would help a lot of people suffering from this disease and take a step to talk about it to someone, to get help.
We don’t talk enough of this and our society kind of support that being thin is healthy but it doesn’t. When we are not like the “standard size”, you’re not good.
People have to go beyond this and beauty isn’t about being perfect.
I recommend this book and all the series because it’s a must read, and that i’m also a huge fan of yours.
