Book Description:


Trista Lennon is strong, independent and only desires freedom. Freedom from the control of her parents, freedom from the motorcycle gangs she has had to put up with her whole life and freedom from a relationship that will trap her into the very life she has no wish to ever live.

The day before she’s supposed to leave for Stanford University to pursue her dreams, her world is shattered. After a tragedy that tears her family apart, Trey, her cousin, Talia, invites her to L.A. Her life is all the sudden Hollywood stars and sunshine, late nights and wild parties.

And then she meets him.

Linx Carter isn’t looking for a relationship. He survived a dysfunctional marriage with his childhood sweetheart, which produced two sons, an inability to trust women and a multitude of lies. He merely wants to recuperate from a rough, six month tour Winter’s Regret just completed with superstar band, Scarlet Fever, and enjoy a little peace and quiet.

Until he sees her.

Trista and Linx fight their attraction for one another like war on a battlefield.

She has a closetful of secrets and he would rather be single and pathetic than date a teenage girl who seems older than her years. However the passion between them is too much to resist and they realize in order to heal one another, they must destroy the walls they have constructed so tightly around their hearts.

Sheri's Review:
Life got in the way so I didn't get to finish reading the book before this review needed to be posted.  I WILL be finishing the book of that there will be no doubt!!
Link and Trista are so irrestible.  They are so broken and shattered by life, yet together they find something more.
This book is extremelly well written, it dragged me in from page 1.   I stayed up way later then I intended because the time just flew by! 
Trista is so brave and amazing.  I have this constant fear that she is going to break and be destroy herself.
Link is surviving.  He puts up a wall so deep I don't think it will ever come down.
Together they prop each other up and make a whole people.  I can't wait to see what the last 50 pages holds for them.  I have a feeling its going to hurt a bit, but I think its definitley going to be worth it.
I highly recommend this story to anyone out there who wants to read a fantastic book!!
