What happens when the one person you truly hate is the one person who really sees you?After McKnley Rhodes’s family fell apart, she struck out at Cole Matthews, her then best friend. Over twenty years later, she’s never forgotten the hurt she endured or the hate for the boy she believed caused it.
Cole Matthews hasn’t seen his childhood friend, McKnley Rhodes, for twenty-two years, and what he finds shocks him. She’s tired and beaten down, and he wants to fix that, just as he used to when they were kids. Cole’s the only one who can see she’s putting on an act by embracing her rock star persona. His new goal is to determine why and put an end to her torment.
Will McKnley let him in or will he leave her with no place to hide?
Best friends from childhood, reunite years later. She’s full of misplaced hate. He has the calming effect on her that he’s had on her since they were children – he makes her feel better. They both have high profile careers and they overcome the many obstacles thrown at them. I like that Cole calls her out and challenges her to take control of her own life. Story is told in dual points of view. I really liked this story, the characters, the setting, and plot. Written so that I was interested from page 1 thru the end. First book I’ve read my this author. It’s the second book of a series, so now I’m off to read book one then looking forward to more from this series.

Megan Lowe is a lost journalism graduate who after many painful years searching for a job in that field, decided if she couldn’t write news stories, she would start listening to the characters whispering stories to her and decided to write them down. She writes primarily New Adult/Contemporary Romance stories with Sport and Music themes. She is based on the Gold Coast but her heart belongs to New York City. When she’s not writing she’s either curled up with a good book, travelling or screaming at the TV willing her sporting teams to pull out the win.
