"The heart isn’t like the liver. It doesn’t regenerate, no matter how much time passes. Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good. I’d left mine with Sebastian when I
walked away that day, and I hadn’t seen it in the seven years since.” — Lux Kincaid
At eighteen, Lux is forced to make a choice. One that nearly destroys her.
She breaks a boy’s heart.
She breaks her own, too.
Seven years later, Lux never expects to see Sebastian again — especially not when her career as a journalist is hanging by a thread and she’s stumbled onto the story of a lifetime. As she chases down leads and explores the dark underbelly of Manhattan, Lux will put her life on the line. But after crossing paths with a still-unforgiving Sebastian, it’s her heart she’s most worried about.
Amidst the blame and the betrayal, the hurt and the heartbreak… can two lost lovers ever find their way back to one another?
Lines will be blurred. The past will be unearthed. And Lux will find out that some secrets aren’t meant to be kept…
This book is so much more than a romance, and I loved that. The added elements only enhanced the story. I never felt like it was crowded. Everything flowed really well. And the dialogue? Amazing.
I'm usually not a fan of love/hate relationships. But this one is so well done that I wasn't bothered by it at all. The relationship between Lux and Sebastian seemed authentic. I cannot comment on Lux's twin brother without being brought to tears again. It was a beautiful part of the story that I really loved.
If you're a fan of New Adult, I don't know why you haven't ordered this book yet. (If you have, high five.) It has everything that you expect from the genre and SO much more. As someone who's still discovering the New Adult genre, I can definitely say this book is perfect for those on the fence. It's a beautiful story that highlights Julie Johnson's talent and the potential of the New Adult genre.
