Marley goes out with Vin - they connected immediately when they met, they took chances and loved to party hard with drink and drugs and for Vin who drank to the excess a little too much it starts to cause problems in their relationship. At a last ditch attempt Vin goes into rehab to try to keep his relationship with Marley together; but it's all a little too much too late for Marley and she tells Vin she can't be with him any longer and walks out of his life.
Fast forward nearly three years later -----
When he comes out of rehab he once again pursues his dream of getting his own nightclub up and running with his long term best friend Zay, things are good but he still misses Marley so much. She is always been in his heart and in his head, but he is determined to put his life back on the right track.
When he gets a phone call from his A***hole of a brother asking him to attend his engagement party and to be his best man - Vin is intrigued as this is all very sudden and although he doesn't get along with his brother, he wants to please his mother whom he loves very much.
What he doesn't expect to find when he goes to the party is the girl who walked away from him, the girl who consumed his whole world and who he still loves - just about to marry his brother !!!
He is shocked beyond belief and so is Marley when she see's him, and so the angst between the two of them shoots up sky high and we are taken on a journey with them through all their highs and the lows and it is really interesting to see what happens to these two people and those who surround them.
I LOVED Vin. He is damaged, and vulnerable but has so much love inside of him and he just melts your heart the more you read about him, I cheered him on all the way through this book - a fantastic character.
Marley was frustrating - I know why she was doing what she was doing and her reasons for doing it, but I didn't really like her for it to be honest. I did like the spark and fire inside of her and she did redeem herself further along the book.
There is passion, angst, love, hate and so many emotions that the reader discovers in this story to make your heart beat that little bit faster.
A definite page turner and I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen to these intriguing characters.
Well worth the read !!!
This book had me gripped from the very beginning right to the end. Vin & Marley have a toxic relationship but with so much chemistry, you find yourself cheering them on throughout.
“He could have everything else, but he wasn’t keeping her.”
Shanora Williams delivers a heart-breaking yet heart-warming second chance, forbidden romance with 100 Proof. Two people that loved hard but broke apart even harder. My heart shattered multiple times for the hero in this book and my character connection to him was 100 Proof. Our heroine delivers a case of tough love when these two split after a three-year relationship, yes, it was needed and yes it was warranted, but that didn’t mean it hurt any less.
“She was my kryptonite, but also my strength. She gave my life meaning—for a while, anyway.”
Vinny was a character that lived up to the reputation he was unfairly given. If you want me to be the black sheep, I will be the black sheep and this was his way of acting out and rebelling against the people that should have loved him the most. Vinny’s relationship with his mom was perfect, he was the angel child but his father and brother despised him and made his life hell. I must admit I was intrigued as to what went wrong between the males in this family and I was glad that Shanora Williams slowly drip feed little snippets and made us wait, because it added to the intrigue.
“And you are my world—have always been mine, since the moment we met. Which is more important?”
Vinny had battled addiction, his method of forgetting was whiskey and drugs, a cocktail that destroyed his relationship with Marley. Three years Marley stood by his side, but even she had to admit defeat and put herself first for once. The relationship that these two had was perfect, in the flashbacks to the past you could see just how compatible they were, how much they loved each other and how they made each other the better person, despite the addiction. But when their paths cross two years later…all hell breaks loose!!
“Addictions are bad habits that are hard to let go of. That’s why you have to live without me, Vinny. I don’t want to be the one to destroy you, and I can’t let you destroy me. Not again.”
Yes, this is the battle of the brothers, yes, Marley had no idea they were related and that was all explained, yes, I hated the brother and the more and more time Marley spent with him the more I began to despise her. I did realise that Marley was stuck between a rock and a hard place, but come on…this was brutal.
“This was a dangerous love, but the risk thrilled me. It always had. This was a stupid kind of love, but it was real. So, so real, and so, so bad.”
The back and forth and the not knowing of what the hell was going to happen was infuriating, but was testament to this author’s writing ability and her apparent knack of dangling the carrot while she pulls your strings like a puppet master. Despite the length of this book this was a quick read and one where I couldn’t turn the pages quick enough. The flashbacks to the past were extremely welcome and gave the reader an insight into their back story but I was still desperate to get back to the present because that was where all the interesting stuff was happening.
“I missed his touch. I missed his lips. I missed everything about him, and I hated myself for it.”
While I found the end result predictable, because I expected it from the very beginning it didn’t matter, I was more interested in the how. The back story on Vinny and his brother and father was what threw me for a doozy and that part I never saw coming, especially “what happened.” This was a great read, one that I thoroughly enjoyed and although I didn’t love Marley, I appreciated the situation that she found herself in.
