Now addicted to the rush of fast cars and cool criminals, Charlotte finds herself leaning less towards the ledge and more toward the arms of her savior. But with reasons of his own for keeping Charlotte safe from herself, William is reluctant to involve her in his criminal undertakings. Will his career choice keep them apart? Will Charlotte’s painful past?

~*~ REVIEW ~*~

Wow! This book had me crying from the start.  Great job, Amanda Lance!! This book was filled with so much emotion I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest.

I love Charlotte and Williams’ characteristics. Yes, Charlotte was depressed and she was without a doubt going to commit suicide. She knew where her mind was at. She knew she didn’t want to be in pain anymore. But what’s left for someone who feels absolutely nothing?

William just couldn’t walk away. He couldn’t leave her on that overpass. Mr. Wild streak wasn’t afraid to show his sensitive and caring side. And he is totally swoon worthy. Very entertaining and a down right bad boy with a heart.

This book consumed me from the very beginning and I could not bring myself to put it down. The way Amanda was able to express the darkness within Charlotte was captivating. The emotions pour through the pages and seep into your very soul. I cried, I sob, I laughed, I snickered and I felt my heart break and then mended back together bit by bit.

This was a beautifully developed story, had a fantastic story line and amazing characters. This is definitely a book you wouldn’t want to miss out on.
