I’m a huge Kimberly Knight fan. I love all her books and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s fantastic! Even though it’s a standalone, I can definitely see the potential for further books with other characters. I read this in one sitting as I just couldn’t stop till I’d finished!! It’s beautifully written, passionate and sexy with some red hot sex scenes. This is a story of love, loss, anger and betrayal, and also finding the strength to leave a life that’s slowly killing you and starting again. There’s a few laughs along the way as well! I loved and connected with both characters. Autumn’s strong and determined and I loved how she was hell bent on escaping her hellish life. Gabe… wow! He had me from page one! He’s on his own path to hell but meeting Autumn might just be the one to save him. Do they find their second chance at love? I’m not telling! Download this superb book and find out for yourselves!
