Phoenix is two days out of jail when he meets Robin at his cousin's house, and he knows that he has no business talking to her, but he's drawn to her quiet demeanor, sweet smile, and artistic talent. She doesn't care that he's done time, or that he only has five bucks to his name, and she supports his goal to be a tattoo artist.
But Phoenix knows Robin has a secret, and that it's a naïve dream to believe that his record won't catch up with them at some point. Though neither is prepared for the explosive result when the past collides with the present…
I was so excited to get this book. I fell in love with this series from the beginning. While I really enjoyed this book, I didn't feel like it explored the characters as much as I would've liked. Robin and Phoenix were great characters. I thought the book would have been...what is the word I'm looking for....darker? No, that may not be the right word. Well, I'll tell you a little about the book and maybe you can come up with the correct word.
Robin likes to party. She wears skimpy little clothes and loves to have a good time. That is until she gets so drunk one night she wakes up in the bed of her best friend's boyfriend. Racked with guilt Robin shuts everyone out. She quits drinking, going out and starts wearing clothes for comfort rather than fashion. Then she meets Phoenix. Phoenix is Tyler's cousin who was just released from jail. There is an instant connection between the two. The pair start spending time together and they find they have more in common than they thought. This part moved a little too fast for me. Don't worry it wasn't instalove. Things just got serious too fast. And it was bit lighthearted considering what the characters were going through.
While I enjoyed the story, I wanted more from the characters. I can't wait for the next book. Kylie's book is sure to be an awesome story!
I received this book from NetGalley via the publisher.
