She's a girl trapped in a rigid world she desperately wants to escape, and he's an untamed artist with an attitude, hell-bent on freeing her—body, mind, and soul. But Reagan's life is not her own, and Dare is not welcome in it. She can't include him in her carefully-controlled, extremely public lifestyle...and yet she cannot give him up.
Will a shared passion for art—and, increasingly, each other—be enough to keep them together? Or will it be the thing that ultimately tears them apart?
There are very few books that I can say were perfect. By perfect I mean there was no story flaw, falling out of character, lack of passion or flow, etc. I have to say this book is pretty damn near perfect!! From the storyline, to the characters, the angst, sexual tension, drama and it's ability to draw you in emotionally makes it a MUST READ on my list.
We have Reagan McKinley, a girl from a wealthy socialite family who expects her to do everything they say for the family's sake. Unfortunately, all they want from her tears her away from her passion in life. One of those passions is Daren Wilde; Dare. Dare is AMAZING! Amazingly beautiful inside and out, but he harbors a dark past. He had a horrible father, drug addicted mother and siblings he needed to look out for. Both Reagan and Dare seemed perfect in looks and beauty, but inside they were perfectly flawed and just as broken as the other.
Emotions are INTENSE in this book. you can't help but feel Reagan's despair and her struggle from falling off the edge of sanity. As I was reading about her family and the things they would say to her, do to her and make her feel, ripped my heart out. How can a family see so little in their own daughter. I felt sick to my stomach thinking about the pain that she must have felt day in and out. I was happy that she had found someone like Dare to help relieve that pain. But how can you accept something so wonderful when you were taught your whole life that you weren't deserving of it!
UGH I can't wait to read book two and the rest of the series! I have a feeling this is going to get worse before things get better *wink*
