She’s no stranger to love and loss…
By age eighteen, Alexa Kingsley had lost everyone. Only Joey, the lonely boy next door, remained. He’d clung to Alexa like a lifeline through years of abuse at the hands of his father, and she vowed to protect him as best she could. Alexa thought Joey was the one person who’d always be there—until the day he left her as well. Finally forced to go it alone, Alexa finds this latest loss may hurt worst of all.
He’s no stranger to lack of love…
Joseph O’Connor was every bit the villain his father trained him to be, his young heart twisted into something ugly, corrupted. But his father underestimated the girl next door, miscalculated the impact Lexi would have on Joey’s life, the spark she ignited that eventually, despite all odds, grew to an inferno of hope. To reclaim her, Joey must first become a man Lexi can be proud of…the kind of man she deserves.
Amidst a shadowy world of guns and drugs, will Joey’s ultimate sacrifice—a declaration of love from a man who was never shown any at all—be enough to finally set him free?
"Oh gods I have stalked this author and this book right from the get go, freaking love this author and her writing style, the dark, the emotions, the grit, all things that make this one of my favourite authors.." ~ Kitty Kats Crazy About Books
"This is so beautifully written it brought tears to my eyes. Brilliant plot with beautiful characters." ~ Goodreads Reviewer
It was good to finally read Joey and Alexa story and I must say that this was a series that I was following from the very beginning. It's very seldom that a book can really grip up and get you so caught up in the characters that you feel like they are a part of you. This series was filled with so much that I often wondered what was going to happen next and I'm glad that I stuck with it. From the very beginning of this book my heart broke and it's like it was never put back together until the end. This is the type of book that will follow me for a long while and I can't wait to see what will happen next.
