Young Adult Romantic Suspense
Date Published: August 1 2016
Sydney Sommer’s world fell apart after senior prom. Since then, her life had become a constant loop of unfortunate scenarios that kept her in constant fear of what might be lurking around the next corner. Her trust in others was at a standstill. Even those who were closest to her were held at a distance.
After serving active duty overseas, Jaxon Triggs moved away from his hometown, hoping the change in scenery would help him build a new future for himself. What he wasn’t expecting was to fall for a girl who was broken.
From the first moment Jaxon laid eyes on Sydney, he was curious. He became determined to do everything he could to break through the armor Sydney held around her so securely. His instinct to protect her and keep her safe kicked in as the dangers she encountered became more personal.
With dread always looming close by and secrets discovered, would Sydney be able to handle the new changes in her life yet heal at the same time?
First of all, I love that the cover of this novel perfectly draw readers into the world that Diane Zparkki has created.
Believable and Relatable characters really help to captivate the reader and get them invested in the happenings of this story. I loved Sydney from the very start. Jaxon has just survived active duty, yet he is still not prepared for the challenge that is Sydney.
I liked that the characters were very much the odd-couple but they definitely worked together.
There is plenty of heartache and emotion woven through this novel, yet spots of lightness and humor to help balance it out. Kudos to the author for managing to incorporate both of those.
After reading so many books, her mind started to create her first story, and she needed to get it out.
