My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, after having written a nice, long review for another book and Goodreads not saving it (and I can’t get it back now), I’m going to make this short.

I really enjoyed this book. The romance was fine, but I loved that the author tackled such a sensitive subject in this story. And I really appreciate how the main character, Avery Morgansten, felt very real to me. I only wish there were more men like Cameron Hamilton. I don’t know, maybe there are men like Cameron – not the arrogant, player Cam, but the sensitive, trusting, baker Cam – but I just haven’t found them.

Still it was nice to see how this relationship went throughout the book, how Avery was finally able to open up to Cam about herself and how he was able to be there for her and love her through it all.

Yes, there was all kinds of smexiness in there, too, I’m not gonna lie. But this book is more than that, and I hope if you read it, you appreciate the delicate subject matter that’s revealed in it.

Avery had many issues, especially with trust, and it was understandable considering what she had gone through.

What happened to her can be life changing, and life destroying, and it was really interesting to see how the tragedy of her past affected her even 5 years later, and how it affects the people around her as well. But being that she was a victim of rape, it’s easy to understand why.

And not only that, to be subjected to being labeled as the villain, because of it, even by those you thought would stand by you, that can make anyone close down their heart. To not let anyone in, for fear of being hurt again.

No, Avery had every right to not let anyone in, but it’s amazing how she finally did. How she finally opened herself up to Cam and let him know her true, scarred self. I was even shocked about what had happened to her when she finally revealed it to Cam.

And unfortunately, there are many girls in similar situations. Which is why I loved how the author tackled it. She didn’t make the character all hard-hearted, but made her real. She didn’t have the character open up to Cam so easily, and she let us see the fear that Avery had. It was both sad and understandable.

This is a story that will stay with me, but in a good way. To remind me that victims of crimes can overcome, but sometimes it takes help of others who truly care.
