Little do they know that what they each need is waiting just across the hall.
I really really enjoyed this book. This was the first book I have read by Ms. Facile and let me say she did not disappoint. I will admit some of the book is predictable, but there were some twists that I did NOT expect.
One thing that I really enjoy about this NA genre is if it is done correctly it brings back so many memories of being in my early 20s and late teens. This book takes me right back to college and drew me in.
I really felt sorry for Sylvia. She did get a little annoying, but she did have a lot going on in her life. She had a fantastic support system in her friends. They were truly awesome and everyone needs a group of friends like that. I found myself screaming at Sylvia to dump Beau!
What can you say about Quinn!!! Swoon! He was such a hottie! I was really rooting for him and Sylvia to get their HEA!!!
This is a great story that is well developed and has a great cast of characters that you will love reading about. Just when you think the book is coming to an end, she hits you with something BIG! But the story does have a HEA! I give this book a certified Nerd Alert A+.
Ty Jaden isn't what society needs. At twenty-six, he's a charismatic and intense heroin dealer turned user who landed himself in jail. Now he's out, clean and just wants to get away from the city that is still his prison. But it won't happen when powerful men have a vested interest in making sure he continues his trade. So, now he has a plan: keep his head low, do what is expected of him, ignore all distractions and wait for his opportunity to finally get away. What he doesn’t need is to get involved.
Mary Flynn is a doe-eyed small town woman trying to make the world a better place by volunteering at a Minneapolis Safe Works chapter and teaching at-risk youth. Mary, an angel with inner fire and intimidating intelligence, is trying to save the world from people like Ty. He didn’t want to drag her into his world, but like a moth to flame, she was drawn to him.
Like an angel, she might just be his redemption.
I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for and honest review.
I really was looking forward to reading this when I got it. I really loved Across the Hall, and I was hoping to like this book as well. Once again she does not disappoint.
This a story of love and redemption. It is very emotional and is written brilliantly.

When they finally meet sparks fly and there is a strong connection between the two of them. Everyone warns Mary to stay away from Ty because he is bad news, but after an incident they start to form a 'relationship'. This relationship slowly turns in to love and they become a very happy couple.
But some secrets threaten to break them up. I won't give it all away, so you must read it! Very good book and it gets a certified Nerd Alert A!
