It’s easier to control tears than fear. 
It’s easier to suffer in silence than ask for help. 
It’s easier to be loved than to love.
Nadia has a past. A messy past full of grief, suffering, and regret. Broken and fragile, she’s scared to share her secrets and struggles to move on.
Until he comes along. A handsome face; an athletic build; the strength he emanates. He’s everything she needs to regain control of her emotions. He’s the flicker of light at the end of a dark tunnel. 
But she refuses to take advantage of what he offers, too scared it’ll backfire.
Thomas carries a burden. A heavy burden that left him numb. He hides behind the mask of a playboy, refusing to feel, convinced that fate made a mistake and his job is to fix it. In his orderly world, there’s no place for joy and happiness.
Until she comes along. A beautiful face; a petite body; a sea of sadness in her eyes. She flips his world upside down with one look, and maybe – just maybe, there is a reason why he’s still breathing. 
Except she’s his best friend’s off-limits little sister and if he touches her, she might just be the reason he stops breathing.

My Review

Holy Angsty Brothers Best Friend Batman!! Two beautiful but broken people. Coping in ways that aren’t really healthy, but both just doing the best they can to stay afloat. 

Thomas had something happen in his past. It was very traumatic and he blames himself for being the one to walk away. He’s been silently suffering with survivors guilt. Coping by revolving romps with leggy blondes they he hires, hooks up with and then immediately fires. When he goes with his best friend and business partner, Nick to the airport to pick up his Nick’s sister, Nadia, he’s instantly drawn to her despite the fact that she’s the exact opposite of everything he usually goes for and she’s completely off limits. 

Nadia has returned home after two years away. Unbeknownst to anyone else she has suffered while away. She’s trying her best to fit in and be there for her family, but she’s struggling. Thomas notices her struggles and wants to help. She’s as drawn to him as he is to her. She finds solace with Thomas. He unexpectedly becomes everything she never knew she needs, even though he’s forbidden. 

There’s definitely some characters they have me wanting to smash my kindle across the room…Thankfully, I won’t. It’s far to cherished a possession.

Nadia and Thomas, these two ignite and have sparks from the moment they first meet. I mean these two broken people could  have the ability to heal each other if it weren’t for all the other stuff… GAH! This book has it all secrets, drama, angst, sex, and suspense. And the cliffhanger!! OMG the cliffhanger! I need book two like yesterday!

 ⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I love a good brothers best friends romance. This one had that and more, because they were both so broken. I could have done without the brother though. 😬

🔥🔥🔥🔥-Thomas and Nadia were just super hot together. From the moment they met their chemistry was off the charts!! 🥵🔥

🌪🌪Cliffhanger Warning-Cliffy Alert you will not get resolution in this book. If that bothers you wait for book two!
