Growing up on the coast of Maine with a revolving door of foster siblings, Caitlyn Michaud spent one intense and passionate year falling in love with her foster brother, Heath. Then he left without a word. The betrayal devastated Caitlyn and made her vow to forget the compelling bad boy. But forgetting his sensual touch and their deep all-consuming friendship is easier said than done.
Isn’t the guy she needs…
Determined to move on, in college Caitlyn has risen above her small town impoverished roots and has joined a sorority, reinvented her appearance, and landed the right boyfriend. Pre-law major and frat president, Ethan, is thoughtful and always laughing, and he makes her feel happy, calm. He also gives her the social acceptance she craves.
But the perfect world she tried so hard to attain is ripped apart when Heath appears one night out of nowhere. Caitlyn remembers all the reasons why she loves him, even if they don’t make sense to anyone but her. Out of the military, Heath is as brooding and intense as ever, and he is determined not only to win her back, but to exact revenge on everyone who kept him from her…
And when one love allows her to breathe, but the other feels as essential to her life as air, how does she choose between them?(less)

This would be one of those I would say “It’s not you, it’s me.” Cause…
I did not like Caitlyn, sigh… And for a while there, I thought the story was gonna destroy Ethan’s character as well, but I’m glad it didn’t. I liked both Heath and Ethan… they both deserve someone better. I really love the storyline, but did not like how it went down. The problem here is Caitlyn… her reasonings and actions gave me a hell of a headache really. 😦
So Caitlyn had a poor life growing up, with a crazy mom and an alcoholic brother and a lot of foster siblings… and she just wants to start a new life… In fact, she did good and proved herself… which she should just be proud of… then getting herself engaged to a great guy, Ethan, whom she said she loves… but Ethan knows nothing about her family or her past.
And… instead of feeling sorry about not being completely open to Ethan, she vehemently justifies her reasoning why she didn’t… In fact, she made it sound like Ethan hurt her more than the other way around?! (To wit my husband would say “typical female!” and I completely disagree of course, lol)…
Then there’s Heath, another love of her life from years back and still does, her first love, who left her and just disappeared without a goodbye…. But who also suddenly returned for her the same time she’s got engaged! So now, she wants Heath and don’t want Heath… gah! I want to rant and say more but it would be a complete spoiler. Heath sounds mysterious and is very demanding…. thought it would have been nicer to know more of him… But that one thing I like about Heath is that he seems to know Caitlyn more than Caitlyn knows herself!
Anyway, I find Caitlyn a brat…. she drove me insane!!!
I love the blurb, I love the start… did not like what happened after… and yeah, predictable.
It is well written…with all that angst and hotness…
And though this book isn’t for me, hey, what doesn’t work for me might work for you… 😀
