I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.

I officially cut boys out of my life.

They’re untrustworthy, vicious, and cruel.

I’m not the same reckless, carefree girl I was three months ago.

That girl was naïve.

That girl was stupid.

That girl was destroyed.

I learned my lessons the hard way.

I’m still picking up the pieces of the girl I was before.

And, I know better than to fall for a sinful smile on a pretty face.

So I never should have given him so much as a second glance.

But, if you told me this past summer that PacNorth University's notorious bad boy was going to become my dark knight, I wouldn’t have believed you.

Gabriel Herrera can’t be my anything.

Only, he tells me I'm his everything.

But putting my trust in the boy with questionable intentions is the kind of devastation I may not survive.

Can't wait for more

4.5 stars

After falling in love with the Devil's of Sun Valley High series, I couldn't wait to see what the author would come up with with spin offs and so far she's onto a winner. You have to heed the warning at the start if you have triggers because it gets intense and quick, but I just want Gabriel and Cecelia to have all the happiness in the world.

It definitely had my emotions all over the place. Be ready to go on an emotional roller coaster! You will have your heart broken, put back together then broke again. The hits don't stop coming. The storyline is wonderful, it has angst, drama, steam, and is so intense. The characters are great. The whole book is captivating! With a heaping side of raw emotion that leaps off the page. Just...WOW!.

I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book, provided by Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Wow. I did not go into this book expecting to have so many emotions. From start to finish, I felt every single feeling both Cecilia and Gabe were feeling. The trigger warnings here (suicide, suicidal thoughts, grief and sexual assault) are prevalent throughout the book, and you also find out upfront this isn't a standalone.

Brought together by not-so-good circumstances, Gabe decides Cecilia needs protecting, and even though she is initially upset by that, she starts spending time with her new guardian angel and his friends. But shadows of the past just won't go away, and even though they have feelings for one another, can it last? Can Cecelia live with herself if Gabe is caught in the crossfire of her demons?

I actually cried at the end of this book, and I really can't wait for the next book. The writing style is very raw and open, abrasive at times even, but that's what this story is. Cecelia and Gabe are both broken people, and they use each other to stay whole. The description and detail sometimes had be flinching, but that made it all the more real.

I will patiently wait for Cecilia and Gabe's HEA, because, at this point, if they don't get one, I might lead an uprising. I've never read two characters more deserving of an HEA. I want to hug them both and tell them everything will be all right. I need for them to be all right.
