Spider and Rose's story will weave its way into your heart and your head. I'm a huge fan of angsty reads and lately I've been on a rock star kick and this book ticked off all the boxes for me. Like a rose their story is full of thorns and I found myself having those moments where my heart literally pounding in my chest, my body temperature rose and my involuntary word vomit occurred. This book had me cursing up a storm with those you have got to be fucking kidding me right now moments. I live for those moments. These two were meant for each other but man oh man their journey was tough, it was long, it was full of pain and will twist you up. I flip flopped at being angry with their circumstances at times but knew that in order for these two to make it to their hea they needed to go through pain, discovery, independence, recovery, forgiveness and acceptance. If you are wanting a story that is full of angst, and that very well leave you ready to pull your hair out at times while swooning at others then I definitely rec this book. I loved every moment of it.


"She crossed my path and changed my whole direction." He calls himself Spider. I just knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane. I didn't know who he really was...British rock stepbrother. He kissed me because he thought we'd never see each other again. We would. Everyone warned me about him. They told me he was ruthless and cold and screwed up. They said he'd leave me with a hole in my heart. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out. But I crumbled instead. They say an unbreakable thread connects those who are destined to meet. If that's true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever. He just had to figure it out before it's too late...
