Synopsis from Goodreads
I can’t breathe… I don’t want to. With every breath that fills my lungs, I feel the pain she’s been fighting and it’s killing me slowly, reminding me of the day she got ripped away.
I’ve gone thirteen years without her, and as if she was never gone, she walks back into my life, feisty as hell and set on running from me.
I refuse to let that happen.
She’s my Lex. It doesn’t matter if I have to destroy everything in my path that leads to her—I will.
I’ve been in love with her since the age of nine. I lost her once, and you better damn well believe that I will walk through the fires of Hell before losing her again.
Ripped apart by the fucking world. I’m making it my mission to piece her back together again and claim her as mine.
Every part of her sexy body has been possessed by me.
I know she sees she’s not the only one who has changed with time. I’m rough, demanding, and just as damaged as she is.
But there’s one thing I’m capable of—always have been—and that is loving her.
I promise to do everything in my power to show her, no matter what it takes or how much it hurts.
I never thought I’d lay eyes on Jax Kade again, and the moment I realized the rough, edgy man I allowed to take me home and rough-fuck me was him… my world came crashing down around me.
I’m no good for him.
Not for the sweet, protective Jax that took care of me back when no one else would.
I’m damaged, unrepairable…
I need medicine to escape this reality—the pills, cocaine, and liquor aren’t even enough to numb the pain of my past.
Years without Jax destroyed me—ruined me forever—and being back in his life will only ruin him the same.
I could never do that to my beautiful Jax. I never meant to find him, and I sure as hell never meant to want him again as much as I did before we were ripped apart.
It doesn’t matter that I need to stay away from him. It doesn’t matter that I fight to keep my distance. Jax refuses to let me go.
He doesn’t care how fucked up I am. My biggest fear is destroying the only person I’ve ever been capable of loving, but he’s not giving me any other choice…
My thoughts 💭
I love Victoria Ashley she always comes through with a great read! Once I started I couldn’t put it down. Lex and Jax grew up together. Lex had an abusive father and Jax had a drug addict mother. They were there for each other as much as 2 kids could be until Lex’s dad moved them away in the middle of the night. Alex comes back to town years later but she’s struggling with depression and is a drug addict. She wants to stay away from Jax but they end up in each other’s arms anyway. Alex tries to fight it at first but Jax refuses to let Alex go again and is determined to get her clean. Jax is tough but he’s such a sweetheart for Lex and I couldn’t help but love him!!
