Is there a road to redemption? Her coming into my life was a miracle. She saved me. But she also came in like rolling thunder to my lightning strikes. Opinionated, aggressive, argumentative, and fuck did it make me react. She is the first woman to ever call me on my bullshit. Causing my blood to boil like no other. The problem is, she sees right through me. I’m a bad man with no redeeming qualities or is that true? I might not be who she wants, but I can be the only man she will ever need, and she is the only one that can penetrate my blackened heart. The price is high but with her, I get not one but two hearts that will be solely mine. Fire and ice! Freedom is all I wanted and what I got were surprises. All wrapped up in a man that was everything I hated. Life was supposed to be simple. Stick to the plan, that’s all I had to do and then he came in tempting me and pushing my buttons. So why did I let him get under my skin, in my thoughts, and in my bed? There is too much to risk but what a delicious risk it would be. Is it possible to love someone you hate?
Written by Monique Orgeron’s eldest, most beautiful, and intelligent daughter. (My sister is going to hate this part.)
My mom happens to be the most caring, loving, and stubborn person I know, well anyone knows. She gives 100% percent of herself to everyone and has given up so much of herself for my sister and I. For twenty-one years she has poured her heart and soul into making sure we know that we are loved and that we can do anything we put our minds too, but it was about time she figured that out about herself.
Up until this year I hadn’t seen my mom do anything for only her, but this book has allowed her to travel the world through the pages of a book, make new friends, and feel the joy of doing something exciting.
There is a new light behind her eyes and it is just making me feel more joy than she can ever imagine. While she might be annoying most of the time, I am so thrilled that she is finally allowing herself to grow as a person and not spend all of her energy on her family.
It has been a long journey of self-discovery for my mom; she has gone from domestic supermom to domestic goddess throughout the process of writing.
We are so very excited and proud of you! I love you as big as the world.
-Bria and Tony
This was an amazing story that sucked me in right from the beginning and didn't let me go. I hated the ending and I CANNOT wait until book 2. This was a complex group of things happening all at once. The group of characters were perfectly written and the "good" girl I believe has a way more dark side than anyone else thinks.
