REVIEW

There are deep dark scars in Olivia's past. Ones that only her family know of and that aren't readily spoken about. These are part of the same scars that keep her from the man that she is beyond attracted to. She knows that she can't do a relationship, but when given thought of having a bit of fun it's another story.

Dylan has wanted Olivia since the first time he saw her. He knows that she's attracted to him. The chemistry can be felt a mile away, but she fights it tooth and nail. He doesn't know why, but he's decided to take charge.

Olivia and Dylan both have family issues that have affected their lives. They have both become successful people though and overcome obstacles. Some parts of the story will tear at your heart, while others will bring on a full body blush. The characters  are well written. By the end of the book I felt like I knew most of them myself. I don't want to give anything away and oh is it hard because there were so many moments that I loved.

This story has a side story to it as well. As Olivia and Dylan handle the football team, drama starts to creep around different corners. That element brings a bit of suspense to the book, as well as action.This is definitely a book to read and a series that I will be following.
