Fate always had a way of interfering in Vince's best-laid plans. His forced attendance to his annoyingly perfect cousin's baby shower was no different. He was sure to be bored out of his skull, but instead, he met sweet little Rosie Zendejas.
What begins as a unlikely friendship between two very different people turns into one of the most intense and passionate relationships that neither ever saw coming. But just like it had so many times in Vince's troubled past, Fate steps in once again, threatening to take away the one thing he can't seem to even breathe without now--Rose.
Vincent is a typical hot-head. He flies off the handle at the drop of a dime and he is often in trouble with not only his family but also the law. He's not bad per say he just tends to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or he doesn't think about his actions when he's doing them. That all changes when he meets Rose. Sweet, innocent Rose is a breath of fresh air. She makes Vincent want to do better and to be a better man. He succeeds for a while too. Like most "bad boys" he gets into trouble again and is forced to join the Army thus separating him from Rose.
Although this book was not one of my favorites, it had the potential of being a good one. I think if the author has spent more time on Vincent's time in the Army it would have given the reader a little more insight into him. Also, the ending felt a little rushed.
I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
