Falling in love isn’t always easy or pleasant. The intense and angst-filled story of Emma and Scott is a painful, gut-wrenching and exhausting portrayal of how hard it can be to let go…

Picking up the pieces and starting again in the US, Emma enrols in college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do what she wants and live how she chooses, and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.

That is, until Scott Mason walks on stage…

Intense bad boy Scott is the lead singer of a popular local rock band. A ladies’ man and Ashley’s long-time friend, Scott holds an instant fascination for Emma — she finds herself drawn to him, even though he represents everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette — light it, use it, and lose it.

For her cousin’s sake, Emma makes an effort to get along with Scott, but she soon discovers that there is more to him than first appears, making him even more dangerous in her eyes. Behind the façade of friendship, jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurity fester — an internal battle rages as she fights her attraction and does everything she can to stop history from repeating itself.

One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her.

Warning: Contains mature content — recommended age 17+.

Well written and interesting, a book that can be loved easily. I gave it three stars out of five just because of one reason; I couldn’t stand the rollercoaster of emotions that it gave me. All the feels were crushing on me and it was tiring. The characters were confused and they managed to confuse me as well but it was annoying. The book was all about the two main leads, rejecting and hurting each other all over again and again and again. At some point I had enough, wondering who really does that in real life so it had me questioning about whether the book is realistic or not. I don’t know… I mean the happy end could have had happened earlier but the author kept dragging it and trying to bring more obstacles. I don’t know how to express it since I am not fluent in English but I hope you get what I am trying to say.

Other than that, it’s a book you can read if you don’t have anything better to do and if you can enjoy that kind of plot.
