When River’s already broken life shattered further on her sixteenth birthday, she was forced to be with the wrong best friend of her brothers. She was meant for Sammy but circumstance and black mail forced her into a relationship with Danny, a troubled, abusive partner. Leaving the only boy she ever loved to flee. Now four years later he has returned. When her feelings and missing parts of herself that left with him return also, loyalty, restraint and love will be tested. Can she find a way to leave the threatening clutches of Danny, to finally be saved by her childhood love? Or will Danny’s hold on her tighten when more life shattering events consume their already troubled lives?
When Sammy returns home, after four years of being away from the girl that broke his heart, he’s not prepared for all his old feelings to force their way straight back into his heart. Questions that were left unasked when he left begin to plague him, when the sudden relationship between River and Danny all those years ago seems all the more confusing now. Secrets, mistrust and Danny’s possessive behaviour sends up red flags and Sammy begins doubting himself for leaving in the first place.
When the spark between Sammy and River finally ignites it will leave explosive consequences for everyone.

I cry, broken. I cry for my brother, I cry for my father, I cry for my stolen innocence, and I cry for Sammy. I was meant for him.
This story is one gigantic clusterfuck. I shit you not. Thank goodness I got this as a freebie on Amazon. After finishing this book, I don’t know whether to warn readers away or … or … shit, I don’t know.
I’m going to get this out of the way now so potential readers can be forewarned: The ending…I seriously have no words. No. Fucking. Words. I have to ask the author: What the fuck? Why did you end it like that? Don’t you think that after what you put me through, you could’ve at least ended it better? Anythingwould’ve been been better than that! Fuck. Fuck. FUCK!! Huffs**Pouts**
“Can you fix me, Sammy? Can you want something so ruined and destroyed? Can you put me back together and make me whole again? Because whatever is left me, the real me, you have her. You own all of her, all that’s left. My thougths, my body, and my heart. Can you save me? Sammy, please save me. Please save me.”
River’s life is … complicated. I’ve never met a heroine with such a fucked up life. So many things have gone wrong for this girl. Let’s tick them off, shall we?
- Sexually abused by her father
- Raped by her brother’s best friend Danny on her sixteenth birthday
- Blackmailed into a staying with Danny, who is highly obsessed and possessive of her, for the last four years,
- Drug addicted brother, who actually is a good guy, but life dealt him a horrible hand.
- Her only love, Sammy, ran away because his heart was crushed because he thought River chose Danny over him
Seriously…this girl’s life is full of fucking drama. I’m sorry for all the swearing, but this story will make you do that.
“I love you, and I’ll try every God damn day to save you, River, I promise. I’ll save you, baby.”
I was one big ole mess, but for some fucked up reason, I couldn’t stop reading. Shit. I’m seriously fucked in the brain. This was filled with drama, and not your regular old kind either. It was one mess after another. This story was pretty graphic, too; not only the sex, but everything in between, too. I normally like these screwed up dark reads and I would’ve given this book more stars, but I was too shocked and too pissed about the ending to do so. I can understand why some readers hated this story. Like I said, it was one gigantic clusterfuck.
Oh! Before I go, I just have to state that one big bright spot in the story was Jasper, Sammy’s best friend. I fucking adored this guy. He’s such a smartass, but completely sexy and funny as hell. I wonder how his book will turn out. Hmmm….
