“You've owned me from the moment I walked into that music room. You've wrapped yourself in my heart and mind. I can’t get you out. I don’t want to.” ~ Rafael Van Rees
Sophie Fisher’s life is on fire. If she’s not ducking around corners or slipping out of windows to escape the debt collectors her father's death has left knocking on her door, she’s dealing with her rebellious, fifteen-year-old sister, Lilli. And, as if that’s not enough, Rafael Van Rees crashes into her life—literally—bringing with him a past the public has no idea of. Can she unravel his mysteries before he unravels her, or will his presence finally force her to face the demons she's trying to outrun?
Rafael Van Rees prides himself on being in control of his destiny, music and women. As far as he is concerned, his past is a black cloud in the distance--until he meets Sophie, that is, and his world spins out of control in more ways than one. He knows the darkest sins and secrets eventually reveal themselves, but when it comes to Sophie, he'll stop at nothing to protect her from his past. Even if it kills him.

My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This turned out to be a very good book. At first I was wondering what the hell was going on, because Rafael knew Sophie, but she didn't know him. Then there's the whole loan sharks after Sophie because of what her Dad did, that was a bit confusing but after a while I got it. Sophie feels something for Rafael when she first sees him, and when he kisses her - it makes her sit up and take notice. She's been trying to take care of everything on her own since her Dad died a few years ago, but seems to be running out of luck. I absolutely loved when Rafael told Sophie who he was, she was so stunned. Brilliant, I thought. I loved learning about Hawk, Dani and Jace. All very interesting characters who make the main characters better. Hawk has some direct involvement in why Sophie and Rafael don't take things to a physical level quicker, but I thought that rather worked in their favor, because they got to know each other as they are now - not as they were. I loved that Rafael was willing to give up everything for Sophie. Because his heart had never given up on her. Cecelia did a great job with the first book in this series. Wonderful, brilliantly told, I can't wait for the next book in the series which is featuring Hawk and Dani. That's got to be one hell of a story, I'm looking forward to it.
Cecilia Robert writes YA, NA and Adult. She enjoys writing stories about people finding love in the
most unexpected places, coupled with adventurous journeys, whether it's urban, fantasy, sci-fi,
contemporary or paranormal romance. There's always a happy ever after, no matter how long it
takes to get there. When she's not working in my full time job, she dons her supermom cape, or in
most cases finds myself trapped between the pages of a book in search for a hero who'll make her
swoon with just a look or a word.
