Jules was a broken woman trying to take her life back and regain her confidence. I enjoyed her strength and determination. Being in her head when she met Dash and had all of those wildly conflicting emotions was quite an experience for me as a reader. Things almost seemed a bit too fast with Jules and Dash at times, but the storyline itself had pulled me in and, despite the speed, I wanted to know more about her, him, them, her past, and where this thing between them could go. Michelle Lee really nailed the voice of an abusive partner in this book. During their first date, Dash and Jules covered a lot of ground in getting to know one another. When they started sharing about their families, Dash got very quiet, which added to the mystery of his story and made me want to know more about his past and how it gave him an understanding of Jules' struggles. The way that Dash craved trying a relationship with her was so sweet and endearing, especially coming from a rockstar. I was invested in their story and wanted them to be successful. When Jules began recounting her abuse for Dr. Hoffman, the scenes of memories were bone-chillingly scary. The damage done to her ran deep within her, but made her strength and need to climb out of that abyss that much more impressive. There was a lot of adversity that Dash and Jules were facing both internally and externally. I very much enjoyed watching them work together to overcome it all. As Dash prepared to leave for Redemption's tour, I was so worried about their separation and the possible setbacks and difficulty it may cause Jules. Now that she knew about Dash's demons things were much clearer and it allowed their connection to be even deeper. The scenes with Jules after Dash left for his tour were soul-crushing to read. Her despair was palpable. The ending left me needing the next book ASAP. I enjoyed this book and found it to have more depth than I originally expected. Many tough issues were tackled within its pages. This was my first book by Michelle Lee, but I am definitely eager to read more from her.
This book was great but published last year. Is there going to be more to the story and more books?
