Kayden is a bad boy that never played by the rules. Sophia has always been the quintessential good girl, living a life filled with disappointment. Everything changes when their lives become intertwined through a chance encounter online.
Hundreds of miles separate them, but the connection that draws them together is too much to be denied. As the layers of their lives peel back, Kayden keeps the dangerous parts of his past hidden to protect the woman who is becoming more important to him than he should allow. What starts as a pursuit of carnal pleasure turns into a complicated love story. His past is a tangled web filled with addiction, an obsessed ex-girlfriend, and problems with the law.
One mistake he thought he had left behind may end up ruining it all.
I am a sucker for long distance romances in books and in life. This book didn’t disappoint me at all with that theme. The texting back and forth between them was the most charming part of the story, but as with all romances we have to have some emotional roller coaster moments.
Sophia described her life as Navy Blue………..boring. Kayden described his life as free spirit and do what he wants with whom he want, when he wants. This was a match made over the internet. He was friends with her brother so it wasn’t like they were total strangers, but they didn’t know anything about each other.
The author showed us how life and our past choices can either make or break what we are trying to achieve today. Will the love that is growing between Sophia and Kayden survive his ex girlfriend and the baggage that he is carrying. Secrets will threaten to destroy her trust in him. Her quick trigger response to things will cause him to have to decide if she can be forgiven.
I will admit there were a few places that seem to drag for me, but never long enough I even thought of not finishing the book. It put a taste of reality in the story because not everything moves at quick speed, especially when dealing with the law. She did a wonderful job at making the characters someone we could identify with and there were many times I questioned if I would have the love and dedication that Sophia had. It would have been so easy for her to walk away a few times and try to move on, but she knew what her heart desired and it was Kayden.
Kayden brought her out of her shell that she had formed to protect herself from her dreams and wishes. Sophia helped him untangle his past and find a bright future. Towards the end of the book I caught myself yelling NO because I couldn’t believe it would end up like that after all they had went through but in the very last part my faith was restored. I really love this book, it isn’t a deep thinking book, but it makes you question if you have what it takes for the love of your life. What would you be willing to deal with to keep that person close to you? What would you give up to protect them? This is one of those books were the woman is the hero and I loved it.
Kayden: Come and see me. It’s summer and you’re off work. Come here, have some fun.
His text pulled me out of my sweaty naked fantasy, pulling me back to reality. Could I take that plunge? I didn’t want to be another fuck—meaningless.
Me: Feel like adding another notch to your bedpost?
My heart stopped as my phone began to ring. Kayden.
“Hey,” I said.
“Sophia, you aren’t a cheap whore. I’ve never thought of you in that way, ever.” I sighed, still unconvinced.
“Kayden, I didn’t mean to make you mad,” I said, closing my eyes, holding my breath.
“You’d didn’t make me mad at all, Sophia. I just want you to know how I feel, what I feel for you. For the first time in a long time, I look forward to waking up. I check my phone and message you before I even crawl out of bed.”
My stomach filled with butterflies, my voice quivered as I spoke. “It’s the same for me, Kayden; I just want to make sure I don’t become just another girl to you. I have to think about it.”
“Sophia, I don’t want another notch on my bedpost. I want to spend time with you. I want to show you this amazing city; you could use a little fun in your life—wipe away the navy blue.” Navy blue, I stopped seeing Bob weeks ago. I couldn’t pretend to be interested anymore. I wanted to be home to talk with Kayden, my fantasies and daydreams were far better than anything Bob could deliver. “I’ll keep my hands to myself… I’ll be a gentleman. Come on, just a weekend.”
“So you don’t want to have sex with me, then?” I covered my mouth. What the fuck did I just say?
“Fuck, yes I do,” he said, causing my core to pulse, “I plan on it, you won’t be able to resist me.” He drew out his last words, my body breaking out in a blanket of goose bumps.
