His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.
At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.
On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

Well, I don't really know how to start this review. It was actually shelved under New Adult but I don't think it is one. I randomly picked this one out since it's been a while, since I got this one. And good thing I read it just now since the 2nd book just came out.
I am furious. I know. I don't know. This Liam-Jared situation is just getting onto my nerves. It freaking frustrates me. I don't know how to look at Amy without thinking of something like "b*tch" or "slut" or whatever. I don't know. I think she's worst than Anna from the Fifty Shades Series. It's annoying. One moment she's all "I can't get enough of him" and the next moment she's "I have to run away! Fast!", and I'm like "What the hell is wrong with you, bitch?" I'm sorry. I need not mention that part. I'm just really furious as hell.
It really took me a lot of effort to finish the book. Since I'm doing school, reading, and blogging, I really dreaded the time to read. I even feared I will not finish reading this one since you know, I'm furious. That part where I was really pulling my hair out, where she's met Jared and something she said that "something" pulls her to him. I don't know. Whatever that is, well it started there. I'm confused. Sorry! I just. UGH. This is freaking annoying. I might clear my mind if I read the second book. It's one holy I-don't-know-how-to-write-the-review-about-this-book kind of feeling. My gods it's really disturbing as hell.
Though that part, I was sort of liking the last part. Somewhere where Liam came back from wherever he went. The spice just lifted the crap out of there and that's where I decided to just continue on with the second book. And voila. Whatever. I thought I was liking the beginning but you know, the scowl grew on my face and it's not coming on a pure bliss. I was really disappointed. But the idea, that I can't turn down. Though, it's not unique as I expect it to be, Lisa managed to build a story. She's got the talent. And when an author builds a story, it freaking amazes me, I might throw them edible confetti. I'm that appreciative. *peace*
