A new place, a new start on a life, that’s all Becky wants. A place she can feel safe and free herself from her past. No one knows her secrets, not even her best friend. She wasn’t ready for love, not just yet. At least that’s what she kept telling herself. Deep down she yearned for it, even burned for it. But every time she lets herself fall, it fails miserably. She isn’t going to let that happen, not this time. She will find herself first.
All of her plans are thrown out the window the day she runs into Stephen. His smile captures her and no matter how much she fights it, she can’t deny the pull in her heart. Can Stephen help her chase away the past?
Can she keep her secrets and her monsters at bay long enough to give love a chance again?
Becky has secrets that she doesn't even tell her best friend, Lilah. Besides that, she's been through a lot of relationships that just seem to fizzle out. Becky figures she'll swear off men for a while. In her new place she has a chance to start over and maybe heal. She has scars, both mental and physical. During the day things are pretty good, but the nightmares... they're the monsters in her closet that she won't tell anyone about.
This is an excellent book that kept me up reading. I love the dynamics of the characters. They're well written along with the setting and plot. I'm going to read this book again someday. Five stars!
