She was innocent. Passionate. Fierce. After Luna Stone and I went from friends to lovers, my only purpose was showing her how worthy I was. But how could I convince her when I didn’t believe it myself? I craved her touch and her smiles but most of all, her heart. I vowed to protect her and show her father that I could be the man for his daughter. I pushed. She pulled. And when all was said and done, I’d have to go through an even higher power to prove that I deserved her… Myself.
He was quiet. Withdrawn. Intense. Zach Porter and I had been friends since we were kids, but it had never amounted to anything more than that. Until now. But as close as we were getting, he was still closed off. He protected his heart and put up walls, even though he had no reason to. He shoved. I grabbed hold and never let go. If I didn’t fight for what was ours, he’d succumb to his demons and believe their vicious words telling him that he’s not good enough. To give up. On us.

I received this book from the author.

What a hell of a ride do we go on in this story.

Zachary is a boy with a past.  We know he has the same darkness in him which is why Coby and Brogan adopt him.  They can see the same darkness in him that they have.  They know what he will need to control his darkness.

Luna is her dads everything.  He loves her and his son, Vice Jr.  He and Creena will do anything to make sure she is happy and healthy.  Luna is the sweet, innocent one in the bunch of all the kids.  She is the one who has loved Zachary since she first met him.  She isn’t afraid of him and wants to be his everything.

Zach has looked at Luna like a kid but one night he soon sees her as MORE and that scares the hell out of him.  She is his best friend, his confident, his one true light in the darkness.  She never judges him for his countless women or man whoring ways.  When he finally opens his eyes and accepts what she is giving him, they combust into heat and chemistry.

People these two…sweet baby Jesus…the chemistry.  So many times, I was cheering and then a cockblock would happen and I felt jut as frustrated at they did.  LOL  I was like GET A DAMN ROOM ALREADY!!

Luna and Zach have a few issues to deal with.  His fear that he isn’t enough thanks to Luna’s dad and his own personal demons.  Luna’s afraid her inexperience and her jealousy will be the cause of their breakup.  The two fight for what they have and who they want to be with.

This is a great story about overcoming your flaws and personal demons to see the person you really are and what everyone else sees you to be.
