I’ve always wanted something more from life, and until I saw him again that fateful afternoon I had pretty much given up on things getting better. I didn't know exactly what I was missing until I saw Kane again, and it only took one look into his eyes to reawaken the feeling I had the first time I laid eyes on him. We met under such strange and dramatic circumstances over a year ago, when I was just the supportive best friend who tagged along to his house, and he was just Wesley’s worried little brother. I knew that some part of me wanted him even then, and what I thought would be something between us fell apart before it ever really began.
Now he’s come back into my life as unexpectedly as he left it. That life’s been a mess lately –I’m stuck in a dead-end job that I hate, I have a best friend who’s married and moved away, and now a dark cloud from my past looms in the distance, threatening to destroy everything that I love. I don’t know what the future will bring between me and Kane, but I know that I want him, and that he may turn out to be my redemption.
I was especially drawn to their story because it wasn't a "I see him and I have to have him first-sight-lust" type story. They talked, got to know each other. And even though it didn't take them long, they became friends. Christopher Harlan has a way of writing to delve underneath the hard exteriors of these characters to find the real people hiding behind the shells. I really liked the first book in this series, but this book - I LOVED! 5-stars!!
