As soon as I read this Alexis gain my respect as an author, she did not go down the typical route she did her own thing, she went hard and ugly but most importantly she held my attention all the way to the end, then sprang on one hell of a shocker at the end. Which, I might add is not easily done these days.
Madison is a beautiful young girl with a scared and damaged childhood; her mother dying on her birthday was bad enough but when the only parent she has left neglects and blames her for that death she grew up deflated and defeated not knowing any self worth or happiness.
She was eventually removed from her fathers care and place in the care system, in which she moved from one foster home to the other.
Chris showed her attention long enough to get her right where he wanted her then she showed his true abusive, possessive, nasty nature.

Chris and Madison have been together since high school, and at one time Madison felt like he might just be the one, she quickly learned what she was to Chris, a possession, but she figures she would rather be wanted by someone then thrown out again like she was by her father. Madison meets Carter on campus there is an instant attraction, but Madison is not available, Chris refuses to lose what he has already claimed as his.
Let’s just put this out there out Madison has some major issues. There was several times in this book I wanted to shake her, I kept thinking what is wrong with this girl, you have a great guy basically putting it all out there for you treating you like the royal queen and you go back to that jackass? Her reason’s where always clear and I mostly understood them, but still wanted to shake her. Chris evoked such pure hate out of me, he was pure evil, but he kept me turning the pages.
Carter was so sweet, and let me tell you he was a part of a trio better known as the Three Musketeers. I just loved Jason, Carter’s best friend, and one of the trio, he was the ultimate big brother type character to Madison. Another character I really loved and always made me laugh was Carter’s brother.
I loved this book, if you’re in the market for a quick, at times funny, emotional, contemporary romance then this is the book you should read. The ending is a cliff hanger, but no worries the second one is already out to read and I heard it leaves off right where this book ended (thank God.)
