Five years later, Laney comes back to her rocker boyfriend, but what’s waiting for her is not what she expected. Finally standing up for herself may be the worst mistake she has ever made, leading to some seriously dangerous consequences.
The horror she endured sends her to therapist James Hardy, a man that can make her forget about her demons while hiding his own.
They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, but when the problem is buried deep down and the world seems like it’s against you, what do you do?
As Laney struggles to get her life back on track, a chain of events is set off and she realizes she has walked into a beautiful nightmare…

Laney Harper has always wanted to go her own way and follow her dreams to be a piano player. When she decides to go against her mother’s wishes and attends a college to major in music school, her mother disowns her leaving Laney alone. She sets off to college and meets Jake Thomas a local rock star.
Five years later Laney’s dreams don’t quite turned out how she had hoped. Her relationship with Jake is not what she thought it would be either. When she finally stands up to him the man she thought she loved subjects her to horrific violence.
The nightmares of her ordeal haunt her so much that she seeks therapy. In walks Dr. James Hardy and he is not at all, what she expects. Can James help her fight her demons and still manage to fight his own?
This terrific book tells a story of sadness and tragedy centering on Laney Harper. This is part of a series and there is a major cliffhanger. Told from Laney’s POV her life is shattered in a big way, the only person she can really trust is her best friend Lindsey. I loved the relationship between these two characters. When James is introduced, it adds another layer to this deep tale of a girl who is abused by someone she should have been able to trust. Now she has to learn to trust again while she tries to have some kind of normal life after her ordeal.
There are many surprises and twists in this book things happen that will definitely make you say “Oh my god.” Even though James seems very sexy and alpha male, I was not able to get a real feel for him until the end, which gives us a glimpse of James’ POV, which will be book two.
The author manages to draw you in to the emotional drama in a short amount of time without rushing the story. Alisha Cole has a new fan in me I can’t wait for book two to see what happens next to Laney and James.
