They say young love doesn’t last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace—his “Gracie”—was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing.

Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago.

Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He’ll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they’ll never be torn apart again.


You know, this book was not I was expecting, not in the good way. The first two books in this series were mind-blowing, but this one was kind of a set back. These are my reasons:
  • I hate people, mostly women, that doesn't let the man explain anything. I hate that they keep telling all the wrong things he supposedly did, but never stop to ask like "what I am saying is true?" or "can you prove me your innocence?" I really, really hate those type of people, jezz.
  • Second chance romances always break my heart a little, because the characters really suffer of what happened in the past. I should stay very far from this kind of books, very very far.
  • I love that the girls are badasses, but this one right here... she was badass, but she did not let it show. Girl! You can read minds! Go get them. But no. She just stood there paralyzed because she saw the guy that supposedly made her life hell.
  • I kind of hate that all the romance was one-sided until the last chapters where she realized all the wrong things she did.
Do not get me wrong, the book was not all that bad. I read it, I like it, but I am more interested in Eliza's story now than the original story, which was Zack and Gracie's. I am very intrigued of this Wade character.

If you like second chance romance, this should be right up your alley, but not for me. Sorry.
