Back Cover Blurb:
A Brazilian dancer.
Two souls haunted by ghosts of their past.
One looking for retribution, the other for atonement. Both seeking solace.
A solitary existence is all they know, until fate brings them together. Mutual attraction leads to the perfect pact that will keep them safe. No commitment, just friendship and sex. But nothing in life is risk free.
When suppressed emotions emerge, a seemingly impossible decision has to be made. Do they fight their growing feelings or retrace their lives back to where wounded hearts can be broken once more?
Reeve’s sense of loss and hiding was quite poignant. He was a bit of a broken hero and I found myself drawn to him, wanting to get to know more about him. Nia’s character, on the other hand flipped from bold to timid with the turn of a page. Her personality seemed so all over the place that I couldn’t figure out what she’d do next.
As a whole this was an intriguing and poignant novel that looks at guilt and where it can lead you. The author definitely shows how one’s past is directly linked to their actions in the present.
