A second chance at life…
A second chance at love…
Jared Holt never thought he deserved either—until he found both in the arms of Aly Moore. Aly has loved Jared for as long as she can remember, and she’s more than ready for the future they’re making together. But Jared can’t help remembering his own family. And he’ll never forgive himself for what happened to them. How can he allow himself the very happiness he once destroyed?
To live a life worthy of Aly, Jared knows he has to stop running and finally put his past to rest. But when he decides to face his demons head on, he encounters more than he bargained for: a dangerous mix of jealousy, lies, and dishonest intentions. When those intentions threaten Aly, Jared loses all control, giving into the rage that earned him his bad boy reputation years before. And he’ll fight to protect her no matter what it costs…even if he destroys himself in the process.
*Sigh* This series... *Sigh* What do I say? I love it. It has moved me a million different ways, and it's only up to book two. Quick recap? In Come To Me Quietly, Jared comes back to town, runs into his old friend Chris. Christopher offers Jared a spot on the couch. Aly, Chris's sister, also lives there. Old crushes die hard, and despite a horribly tragic occurance in Jared's life, him and Aly crash together in this cosmic boom of love and lust and need and devotion. It's simply beautiful... heart crushing at times, but the beauty of it all... *sigh* It was wonderful.
