Abbi Glines does it again however this had the added bit of HOT SMOKING chemistry and attraction.
Della is on a road trip to find herself, her best friend has just got married, gives her the car and tells her to go and find herself!! Della was a prisoner in her own home, her brother died her mum went loopy and kept her in the house, she was home schooled by her mother and was extremely lonely she knew no-one. When she hit her teens she started to brave her mothers dominance and used to sneak out of the house at night, even if it was just to breathe in the air and touch the grass, this is where she met her best friend Braden. She was her next door neighbour and wondered what went on at the house, she thought they were vampires!! After meeting a few times at night Braden gets Della out and about a bit more and eventually persuades her to go out to a party. However, when they return Della's mother has committed suicide. After initially being arrested for her death, once her alibi checks out she is released and Braden's family take her in and that is when their friendship becomes unbreakable. Even Braden's husband knew that when he married Braden, he also got Della, they came as a package. The love that they both have for Della was beautiful and I for one would love a best friend like Braden.
On this road trip Della runs out of petrol, she coasts into a petrol station and then realises that she does not know how to put gas in the tank..she is there struggling and then along comes her knight in shining armour "Woods Kerrington"...I loved Woods in Rush's story and he doesn't disappoint in this book either..he does have a shaky moment until he finds his balls, but I forgave him, just a little bit!!
They have their night of fun after the gas station incident and Woods leaves her to carry on her road trip, however, their paths cross again four months later..is this destiny???
The chemistry that these two have is amazeballs, you can feel it oozing off the page and I had to think twice...is this Abbi Glines??? Giving us smoking hot passion and sex in a book??? Abbi did it really well, who knew that Woods had it in him?? There was me thinking he was this cutesy man, work-a-holic, Ivy league jock and he is actually seriously hot!!! He has alpha male tendencies and a filthy mouth that made me blush on more than one occasion!! But he also had his caring side and one that he needed constantly with Della.
Della suffers with panic attacks and night terrors..she does not think that she can be loved because of them and that people with think that she is crazy. She thinks that she will end up as crazy as her mother and does not really want to have children as she feels that she will pass the crazy gene on. Woods witnesses one of her panic attacks and it only makes him want to protect her more.
Tripp has been looking out for Della and pulls Woods aside to find out what his intentions are, when Woods admits that he is in it for the long haul Tripp asks him to come one night once Della is asleep so he can witness first hand the night terrors that she has every night...this scene was amazingly beautiful...I cried happy tears and sad tears all in one go!!
As usual the course of true love never runs a smooth and as I said earlier Woods does make some stupid decisions based on peer pressure from his parents, but he soon sees the light..but is it too late?? Will his parents let him live the life he craves or will they ruin it all???
The ending!!!! Wow, although it was a little cliffie it wasn't one that had me screaming as Woods and Della were back on track..but am I wrong in thinking that it couldn't have happened to a more deserving person??? I think I am, but hey I can live with it....I just hope that this latest development does not hinder Woods and Della's relationship as guilt can eat you away.
Cannot wait for book 2!!
