Erik Anderson is paying for his mistakes and enduring every bit of pain that comes his way. After all, if it weren’t for him, the girl who gave him more than he deserved would still be alive. Even if he were to be put out of his misery, he’d never see her again. Considering angels go to heaven and sinners go to hell, Erik’s going to burn.

Polly Madison has never had it easy. She wouldn’t even know what that looked like. Young and naive, she learned the hard way how vindictive some men can truly be. She’s fought her whole life for stability and control, both of which she refuses to give up ever again since she’s older and wiser now.

When Polly and Erik run into each other in the most clichéd way possible, it shouldn’t have meant anything.

In his arms, Polly felt safer than she ever has before.

Lost in her eyes, Erik sees a future he’d given up on.

They try to fight it. Try to deny something neither is prepared for. But when his own insecurities put her in harm’s way, Erik knows protecting Polly’s life is more important than continuing to wreck his.

4 stars

This was a really emotional story from Anna and it was really easy to get drawn into it. Erik has had so much happen to him throughout his life. His life is spiralling downward and he can’t seem to get out of the cycle of self destruction and blame believing that he doesn’t deserve anything good to happen to him. He uses alcohol to numb the pain of his past but whilst it makes it go away for a short time it is still there in the cold light of day.

Polly’s life has also been anything but easy. Growing up in the foster care system, she has never felt loved, never known what it was like to have a family that cares. Craving that stability and security, she made some poor choices, trusted the wrong people and all that did was leave her feeling used, abused and more alone then ever

Both carry a lot of baggage, neither is looking for a relationship but when they first meet, the attraction is instant and although they do their best to stay away from each other, they just can’t. The path to their HEA is not easy at all, they face many challenges along the way but ultimately, they are meant to be together.

This was another great read from Anne, packed full with so much heartache, pain but also hope. It shows us that love can conquer all and out of all that tragedy can come something beautiful.

Anna began writing when she thought the world would want to hear her sick lyrics through song. Since then, she’s realized her childhood dream wasn’t so far-fetched, just misguided. Now she writes romance with real emotions and happy endings. If Anna isn’t writing or reading, she can be found by a space heater painting her nails and drinking a ridiculous amount of Diet Dr Pepper. She also likes to hang out with her husband and two boys. If it wasn’t for them, she wouldn’t ever leave the house. Anna was born in Wisconsin but now lives in the Evergreen State.
