In this tragic and powerful romance, Hayden and Tenley are both struggling with the loss of loved ones and putting themselves back together. When they meet, their romance explodes into a journey of passion and understanding, but when Tenley’s past comes back to haunt her, will their love survive? 

My Thoughts 

OH THIS BOOK! It ripped my heart out and made me want to eat all the cupcakes at the same time. There were so many cupcakes in this book that I could almost taste them. I really liked this romance and it was a great one to start my 2021 reading journey. 

This book was recommended to me by my favorite bookish girls and they never steer me wrong and this time was no exception. Even though I had some problems with the plot and some characters it was a very consumable read and I devoured it in a matter of hours. 

The characters were likeable and entertaining, but I found some of them not really believable or a little annoying at times. Tenley truly stumped me. First she started as this timid beauty that couldn’t even form a proper sentence around Hayden and then all of the sudden she was this sex kitten demanding everything under the sun from him. That kind of annoyed me and I wish the author had made her a little more consistent. Then she was keeping all these secrets from everyone. I mean I can’t even imagine what she went through, but I just honestly wanted to shake and yell at her to tell Hayden the truth because he didn’t really deserve all that confusion. It sometimes also seemed like she cared more about her tattoo than him at times even though I know that author didn’t mean that way. 

Hayden was an interesting character to me and I thought he was as sexy as sin. If he was a storm, he definitely was a Hurricane Katrina! WOOOOOOH! Hubba Hubba! His point of view was extremely intriguing and I devoured his chapters like the kid devouring chocolate cake in Matilda. However, he was also a little confusing as well. In the beginning of the book, he was a completely different character! He started as a sweet, but caring boy that liked a girl next store, then all of the sudden he was a bad boy with a tragic past. I was just so confused!  

The plot was meh at best and very standard for a romance novel, but of course I couldn’t put the book down no matter how normal it was. The ending was also a cliffhanger that ripped my insides out and forced me to buy the next one so I can devour that one too. I can’t wait to find out if these love birds will make it or not. 

Overall, the book was a steamy read that I couldn’t stop reading even though it had just a few issues. If you are looking for a tragic romance with fun piercing and tats, make sure to pick up this read.
