Publication date: September 29th 2016
Genres: Mystery, New Adult, Romance
Abandoned at birth, Sophie Shields grew up in abusive foster homes, escaping into books and computers for solace. When the constant danger became too much to bear, she ran away, thinking she could survive on her hacking skills alone.
That was until she met Cole Hunter. He became the only person she could trust: her family, her friend, her partner-in-crime. Her everything. After struggling through college and starting their lives together, she believed that nothing could ever tear them apart.
Until it did.
And she’ll do everything in her power to fix what is broken. If it isn’t too late…
When Cole was nine years old, he watched his whole family burn to death in a house fire. Fueled by years of obsession, he started one of the world’s leading architectural firms, with a mission to design homes resistant to fire, earthquakes, floods, and every threat known to man.
Sophie was his secret weapon. She was his purpose. Since they were teenagers, he was determined to build a better life for her, so she could finally be safe, and they could be together.
But disaster has always followed Cole around, ripping away everything he loves. This time, if he isn’t careful…
His enemies might just take him down.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I got the chance to get this book as an ARC for review and I read it all in just a few short hours.
I am starting slow her with the review because I just finished the last page and my emotions are all over the place. This is so so so so good!
The book is split into Sophie and Cole’s PoV and the twist is that Sophie’s PoV is of this year whereas Cole’s is from 2003 where we can get a lot of insight into their histories and even more background to both of their lives.
It was really beautifully written and so emotionally charged, pretty much through the whole book I have been all choked up and at the verge of tearing up. I was not bawling my eyes out like for A Thousand Boy Kisses but I will tell you something this was close.
To be honest, I really do not want to expand a lot on the plot or the characters, because this is one of those books where you actually need to read it and fall in love with it like I just did.
Frankly, I am so impressed my Loretta’s writing that I am going to dive in and start reading her other series as well. If the others are as amazing as this little bit of perfection I just finished reading then I am counting myself happy.
My one regret is that I wish that I had discovered this book and read it sooner, and I am so happy that I have this now rectified.
This is really really good guys! So go for it!
