What began as an affair seven years earlier has since become a tragic love story, a tale of two souls fighting to be together with only their love to guide them. But as people make mistakes, they find themselves once again reliving the past, asking the questions that have remained unanswered. Until now.
Charlie Mason fought hard to rebuild her life and find love again. When the ever-so-perfect Julian Baker proposes marriage, she leaves the past behind her to plan a future with him. Then, in a cruel twist of fate, her past and future collide. Broken and scarred, Charlie is forced to face him once again, the dark angel who took the one thing she had been holding on to—her fragile heart.
Lex Edwards has other ideas. He wants her back and will stop at nothing, even when he realizes the Charlie he knew in high school has changed. She is a game player, and forgiveness is not on her agenda. A dark past threatens their future and the only way to overcome it is to relive the memories. Lex must take her back into the darkness.
The main character of this book is Charlotte, A.K.A. Charlie. She is a successful N.Y. attorney, running a law firm with her friend/college roommate Nikki. Charlie is in a serious relationship with Julian and things are going well until she and Lex see each other for the first time in seven years.
I love how Kat flashes back in time and shows us events that happened back when Kat was 18 years old and in love with Lex. She gives us the perfect amount of backstory between the two of them and I also love her use of dual points of view. Lex and Charlie have a lot of passion between them and it causes their relationship to be volatile at times. The dual POV's help us get a glimpse into what they are each thinking and feeling.
Kat has also created some really great supporting characters. I especially loved Eric, her outrageous and flamboyant assistant/best friend. He and her partner Nikki add a lot of levity to some of the more tense moments in the story.
There is cheating in this book and that may be a problem for some. I didn't mind it, it is just a book people! Seriously though, it didn't bother me because it was an important part of their history. It plays into the demise of Lex and Charlie's relationship years ago, which in turn has shaped therm into who they are today.
I really enjoyed reading this book and I am looking forward to reading the next part of their story
