It was raw.
It was love.
The first time I laid eyes on Wyatt Burton was outside of my biological mother’s house. Abandoning me twenty years ago, I never knew that meeting her would change my life so completely. In fact, there were many things that I never expected that day, but there were a few things I knew for sure. Nothing would ever be the same–not even me. And it was all about to get very MESSY.
Marissa Thornton deserved so much. She was beautiful beyond reason and never took my shit. She drew me in, while driving out the worst in me. But when she let me in, trusted me completely, I thought I could finally let down my guard and find true happiness. I was wrong. Dead wrong, about myself, about her, and most importantly about the binds of LOVE.

I knew this story would be emotionally charged, and I was served with a freaking book hangover. I had to say, from all the books she had written it was definitely the one that pushed all my buttons.
Wyatt and Marissa, two hot mess who have found each other. Sharing some similar experiences, and being explosive around each other.
Wyatt was like a ticking bomb, self-destructive and very angry. The kind of hero that wasn’t denying his fucked up ways, to push people away, letting the demons of his past to consume him to a way that all he’s ever knew was to ruining it when something was good.
Marissa, in spite of her looks, was more than meets the eye. She might be sensitive and having her own mess, more alike as they seemed on their issues, but not letting the darkness win. I liked to the fragile side totally contrasting with her backbone and courage to face the toughest times.
It was definitely a recipe for disaster. Kinda forbidden, the line between love and hate is going to be crossed and trust me, their relationship drove me insane. The author played with my emotions, testing my limits so many times. The job was well done though.
As much as some people would have despite Wyatt, I couldn’t help to be drawn to him. I’d love to read about tortured characters and see them evolving through the bad and the good times.
Stephanie Witter didn’t disappoint. I knew it would heavy on the feels, my heart had been broken so many times, the storyline was very tough at times, I didn’t know if I wanted to cry or to smile. The thing is, the author managed to shatter your heart, crushing it with such strength but making it whole again, by assembling all the pieces together. Oh my if it wasn’t the best kind of stories.
