I am not a victim.
At least that’s what I wanted to believe. What I wanted the
world to see. Five years of trying to find the girl I hid from the world.
I wouldn’t let the bullies win. I couldn’t.
What was I supposed to do when he walked
into the building? He’d made my high school years a living hell.
But, he doesn’t recognize me.
How do I prove he didn’t break me? Simple, take him home for
a one-night stand.
At least it sounded like a good idea at the time.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
WOW Just WOW this story is one I will remember for a while to come. Mari was the “music geek” in school and Cole was the “jock” need I say more. Throughout this book we see how Mari was treated and picked on in high school. However, Mari is strong and with the help of her best friend she is able to be herself despite her insecurities.
Mari had things going her way she was the lead singer of a band and they were rising fast. But one night her past was sitting next to her at the bar. How does one deal with the past especially one that caused you so much pain?
Cole was on his way to the NFL when an injury changed his path. Now he is a coach and a very good one at the high school in town. Now having to face his past mistakes and dealing with the high school kids issues he can see things in a new light.
I admire Mari not everyone could forgive but over time she was able to and dropped her walls. Mari learns quick that dropping walls will expose your heart. Can Mari and Cole get over the past and make things work or will the past end them?
I loved the relationship that Mari and the band members have. Their protective nature over her was heart warming especially her BFF Sawyer. Cole was so sweet with the way he tried to win Mari over. This series has me hooked and I cannot wait for more.
A few of my favorites from the book:
I bent my head and devoured her lips like I needed her to survive.
I peeked over my shoulder at the man who’d captured my heart with a guitar and a sweet smile.
For a brief period in my life, I’d thought losing my change in the NFL was the end of the world.  How wrong was I? I’d had no idea that losing the woman in front of me would hurt a hundred times more. There would never be another Mari.
