When Nolan finally gets a relationship with Natalie, he confesses a secret about himself which just mind end things for them right there. Letting her guard down, Natalie gives Nolan her heart and hopes he just doesn't break it.
Generally in romance stories where there is a love triangle, you normally pick a (guy) team. Hoping the good guy or the bad boy gets the girl. In this case, I was not rooting for the guy, I was rooting for the girl, Natalie. Since having her heart broken, she has allowed herself to become cold hearted and recluse. Even though I knew there had to be something about Nolan, you still want her to just give in and give it a go. Not only is this just a romance story with really nice steamy scenes...but it has an underlying truth to it. Something a reader can actually learn from. There is no perfect man..sorry guys but no..but there is someone that can be everything you need him to be. That is what this story is, Natalie finding someone that is not perfect but everything she needs. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
