Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.
Della is determined to be strong for Woods, even as she’s quietly falling to pieces. No matter how far from home she’s run, the ghosts of her past have never stopped haunting her. Struggling to hide her true feelings from Woods, Della fears she can’t be his rock without dragging him down into the darkness with her. But is she strong enough to let go of the last thing holding her together?

I WANT MORE OF WOODS AND DELLA!
Wow. Just Wow!
Sorry but it's currently 3 am. Wee hours. And I just recovered from crying over this book. Books made me cry lately. Anyway, I was really not expecting everything and what a journey! Brace yourselves, people if you've not read this yet! You're in for some fucked up roller coaster ride. Dude, I was, like, on the edge of that coaster, screaming my lungs out! This was a total shocker and there I just said that. Unless you ask me what really shocked me. Mwaha! But of course, I'll let you find that out. (:
So, Della was back in Woods' arms again. After Woods' father died and tried to hurt his one true love, he wouldn't let anyone else of his family do the same thing to Della. He'd finally said he loved her. During the course of reading, I knew that particular event would eventually last but surely, they'll be getting back on track. I was blindsided by a few events (the reason I was falling asleep while reading and it sucked!). Back to Della. She still has her nightmares with her and it so hurts to see her like that. You know, the one where she thinks she wouldn't be a good mum to her children and all, and that she'll never know when she'll snap and act crazy? That was just. I don't know...overwhelming? Humbling? It was making me crazy. She had her life ahead of her and I was so happy she decided on that trip. It was the strongest decision she had and the fact that she survived the wrath of a mother she had before. She decided to really find herself and discover and think thoroughly at what she's putting herself into. It was smart but reckless, which she isn't [being reckless], and just really lonely since she got baggage to sort through.
Then there's the handsome of a man out of Woods. He'd do everything for Della. Hell, he even went all-in. What a smart move. He's been hooked to Della and that was just sweet knowing he's had a lot of hookups and was supposed to marry Angelina (the bitch!). He's been her anchor and he's been strong and supportive of her decision. He'd feared the most and lost what he was not a bit been expecting. I was hurt for him. You know that feeling where you are so hurting while reading where you felt like you just have to stop, totally freeze in the time and just breathe? I'd even go about not finishing the book but I just couldn't do that since I have to find out more. I don't want to ruin a reputation. The Rosemary Beach Series is one of my favorite books and I could not or would not stand not finishing reading them. It's been a big part of my life. If possible, it even molded meThen I was done. Woods has been in so much. He dealt everything that is Della. He'd let go of everything for her and that was just so sweet of him. I wish someday I'd find my Woods.
This is not new to me but wow, this was a whole new experience and some metanoia that is way past your expectations. I'd very most likely to recommend this book. It got my heart to millions of feeling. Ugh. It's so hard to explain because it's so much. I once told my friend, Jassie from Clap Stomp Jump that I was ready for it before the toughness of school starts. I didn't imagine it would be so so much. Now, I could hardly concentrate on reviewing for my quiz! I keep on thinking about that moment. Though, that one particular chapter changed the mood (somehow) and the flow of the story (well, sort of), I still managed to focus on Della and Woods but just that chapter put me to a lot of thinking until the end. And that put me to the conclusion of another series to wait. You guys (yes, the guys), I would love to hear all of your stories. I can't wait for more Woods! How's it gonna be? At least, there's Rush with his HEA (1 down, 1 more coming)!
This novel deserves the 5 stars. I'm so in love with it. And it made me cry. Damn, it's got me hooked. And that's a good thing! (:
I love giving away these 5-stars! The author deserves it!
