Length: 251 pages

Ryker Oakley only cared about three things during school —fighting, his band, and getting laid. When he took it upon himself to ‘babysit’ Bryleigh Munroe, he didn’t expect her to be so much trouble, and he sure as shit wasn’t prepared for how fast she would grow on him. Fast-forward to eight years later, his band—Twisted Transistor—is the most successful rock group known to mankind. When his brother’s wedding brings the only girl he ever came close to caring about, back into his life, he discovers something he thought they had left behind in the past, had been destroying her daily.

Bryleigh Munroe was a popular girl at school, but because her father was a politically powerful man in the San Diego region, the boys either swore away from her or were trying too hard to get with her. She wanted one night. Quick and dirty. No strings. Only she didn’t expect Ryker Oakley to flip the script on her without her even realizing. Eight years later, Bryleigh still battles with the mistakes she made when she was younger. She’s had to deal with things that she shouldn’t have had to, all on her own.
After all this time has their bond remained silent? Can she forgive the torment Ryker inflicted on her? Or will the choices they made all those years ago force them to re-unite.

My Review

I've been keeping tabs on this author since her first book and her work is like fine wine: it only gets better with time. I was remarkably impressed with this book.

It's the story of Bryleigh and Ryker and the kind of love that could make or break you.

"I knew I consumed him as much as he consumed me, and as much as I knew he was still a f*cker, he was my f*cker that I got to f*ck with for the rest of my life."

Their love was sweet, hot, ugly, cruel, insane, obsessive and possessive. It was also raw and honest, gritty and real. They were both rash... impetuous... impulsive... all words meaning the same thing because these two were freaking reckless. But that's just who they were and you couldn't help but like them and cheer for them.

"I was empty. I needed, still need, you to fill me. You're a part of me, Bryleigh. You've always been a part of me, and when you left, you took my heart with you."

Don't get me wrong. There were many cringe-worthy moments and times when I was yelling "wtf" at this couple. But it all added to make this a good story and I never once doubted their connection or the sincerity of their emotions. Not even time, distance or other people could diminish or kill their love.

"This kiss wasn't hard or fired by lust. This was a kiss of heartbreak, a kiss of not goodbye, but see you later."

While there were some discrepancies and parts that frustrated the heck out of me, they weren't enough to deter me from enjoying this story.

If you've read other books from Amo Jones, then you'll be reunited with her other characters and their stories. If not, this can act as a mild introduction and may spark your interest and hopefully you'll go and read her other books. Regardless, this book was great and I'd definitely read more from this author.
