“Some mistakes can’t be forgiven or left behind. Some mistakes leave a mark on us and we have to carry their consequences forever.”
Six years ago, my life fell apart and ever since I was living within those broken pieces.
Until I met him.
The moment I walked into the Starbucks on my first day of work and laid eyes on him, everything changed.
He saw me.
For the first time in three years, I wasn’t invisible. I’ve grown used to staying on the sidelines and living in the shadows until I met him.
Aiden Hitchings was my father’s favorite player. Our university’s soccer star. The one who lived in the spotlight.
I knew I shouldn’t have tempted fate, but falling for him wasn’t a choice.
History was about to repeat itself, and I couldn’t do anything to stop it.
Last year of college was going to be epic. Juggling our NCAA Championship, coursework and my part-time job at Starbucks wasn’t easy, but it was all going to pay off once I signed my professional contract.
That was before she walked in.
The hazel-eyed girl with a sharp tongue, the one who always blended into the background, was staring right back at me. The Coach’s daughter, one I should have avoided at any cost but kept being drawn to.
She shattered my carefully built-up world and inked herself deep into my soul.
But she carried a secret with her that stood between us, slowly breaking us.
And for the first time in my life, I lost control and I felt helpless.
This is a story where opposites attract but Hazel and Aiden are perfect together so I was rooting for this couple right away. It didn’t take time for them to like each other, the attraction was immediate and their chemistry was great from the beginning. Aiden is so sweet and considerate, which is just what Hazel needs. She’s been hurt and betrayed so she wouldn’t have opened up to anything less. She’s guarded and can be rough but she can’t resist him since it’s obvious that he’s for real. Things got messy at the end and I would have liked to see that happen earlier because the last chapter or two felt rushed but there’s a lovely epilogue that wraps their story up nicely and made me smile.
I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
