Eloped at the age of eighteen. Separated at the age of eighteen. Disappeared at the age of eighteen. This is what happened to Calla Greer. Her perfect life was shattered on her wedding day when she caught her husband Cain with another woman just hours after they said I do. With her heart broken, she moves across the border to Windsor, Canada to get away from the nightmare she stumbled upon. Hell bent on going to college and fulfilling her dream of becoming a lawyer.After six long years of still being married, Calla returns to Detroit to have Cain sign divorce papers.

Cain Bexley had fifteen minutes to destroy his marriage to protect the woman he loved. He did the only thing he could think of to make her leave. He jumped in bed with a woman. Life at home was a lie. Lives were at risk. People are not who they seem. Not even Cain’s dad or Calla’s parents are who they say they are.

2 stars!

Oh how much I wanted this book to go differently.

Calla and Cain had a Romeo and Juliet romance. They eloped and they were in love, it was so beautiful and so cute to see them both fighting for their love. Until Calla walked in on him and another girl. On the same day. That was chapter one.

I admit I’m a sucker for a good drama but it has to have a slow build and lead to it, this one was so fast! Yes, later it’s all explained and it still felt rush. It would have been amazing if we were shown more of them during their romance period, I would feel more for them had I known them better, when a couple gets introduced and they are the main couple but still split it creates all these emotions, I wanted that so bad with this one!

The story fast forwarded to six years later with Calla asking for a divorce but of course her husband is not willing to sign the papers, because six years is not a long time to still be in love with your wife whom you had no contact with.

After that it’s drama. Drama. Drama. Drama.

With them. The club. Enemies. Their parents. There was a huge revelation that not only made Calla look absolutely stupid but blind and a shitty lawyer.

Yes, the book had so much potential and yes I loved some parts and you will too but I wanted that extra time with them to really bond and feel for their lost romance.


My brain finally catches up with the fact I’m naked in front of Cain for the first time in six years. I sit up in a rush of water and bring my knees to my chest, resting my chin on top of them.
“You… you shouldn’t be in here.”
“You wouldn’t answer me,” he says exasperatedly.
“Well, no shit. My head was underwater. That still doesn’t give you the right to just walk in here.”
“When you don’t answer me when I’m standing right outside of a wide open door, not to mention the fact this is my house… well, then I think I have every fucking right. Don’t you?”
“No, I don’t. You could have just peeked in and seen I was fine and waited. Was this some kind of ploy for you to get me right where you wanted me? Are you so afraid that the minute you turn your back on me I will up and try to leave? Are you going to watch my every move? Or did you have an ulterior motive in suggesting I shower, just so I could strip down naked and you could make damn sure I didn’t go anywhere? So tell me what the hell it is, because this back and forth, hot and cold game you’ve started is really starting to piss me the hell off!”
I glare up at him, not quite able to read his eyes.
What I do know is that the sexual tension between the two of us is so strong, it’s working triple overtime. There’s only one tiny little obstacle in our way… and that would be our past. The fact that I can’t trust him. He broke every bit of it the same day he broke my heart. One of us needs to give in, take charge so we can just fuck and move on.
