It was hate at first sight……

Affton

I hated Cable James McCaffrey.

He was entitled, spoiled, a user…and an addict.

He was out of control and didn’t bother trying to hide it.

He had everything anyone could want but still seemed miserable and lost.

Every move he made, every mistake he stumbled his way through, rubbed me the wrong way. However, I couldn’t stop myself from trying to save him from himself when no one else would. In the sweltering heat of the summer, Cable taught me that having it all means nothing if you can’t have the one thing you want more than anything else.

I was obsessed with Affton Reed.

She was rigid, uptight, and no fun. There was something about her innate goodness that called to me.

She acted like she was above all the normal faults and failures that clung to the rest of us like the scent of smoke after a fire.

I was infatuated with her, but that didn’t stop me from acting like she didn’t exist.

In the scorching heat of summer, Affton taught me that there is always a way back from the brink of despair. She showed me that the trick to having it all was realizing that it was already there, in my hands. All I had to do was hold onto it.

The road to recovery is full of twists and turns no matter who is in the driver’s seat.

Affton Reed wants nothing to do with the rowdy crowd of her high school. Her priorities are focused on just one goal – getting out of this wretched town and getting into her dream college. Only one person is standing in her way, Cable James McCaffery. Affton let addiction ruin her life once, she won’t let Cable do it to her again.

Cable’s life is a fast decent into addiction. One wrong decision and his life spiraled out of control in ways he couldn’t have imagined. Now he has to live with the dire consequences.

Affton and Cable hate each other but their lives have severely tangled and there is no way out alone.

This book was a hard one to read. Cable’s addition followed by his rocky road to recovery was a difficult journey and experiences it with him was equally tough. I just wanted to hug this poor man and make his problems go away. I was so proud of him at the end. I can’t even imagine how someone like him deals with problems that seem so severe. I loved his character arc and development. It was realistic, raw and so inspiring.

Affton is a badass. I am pretty sure she can bring down nations just with her words. I adored the way she gave all of herself to help Cable but still knew when to draw a line. She didn’t let anything bring her down or overtake her dreams. SUCH A MAJESTIC CHARACTER!

This is a hauntingly beautiful story which needs to be experienced by all.

4 Stars!

Excerpt

CABLE

I knew I was a mess.

Unhinged and hanging on the precipice of becoming someone who was beyond any kind of redemption. I teetered on the brink of making bad choices every moment I was awake, but somehow, some way, I always managed to keep myself from going completely over. It was the look in Affton’s eyes when I came out of my epic freak-out that had me keep one foot on the line and one foot behind it. There was genuine concern for me in those pretty, almost purple eyes. There was worry and want she tried to hide in that gaze, as well. She tried to hate me, but she was too good of a person, too compassionate and empathetic to follow through on those emotions. She cared, and it scared the holy fuck out of me.

I had no clue what to do with these new feelings. I was sure I didn’t want her to give a crap about me. I had no idea how to navigate genuine, sincere compassion. I was inexperienced in dealing with emotion that wasn’t leveraged or manipulated. I was unsettled and acutely aware of her.

Every breath she took, I swore I could hear.

Every time she blinked, those eyes that saw far too much and witnessed as I ducked and dodged her. I watched them grow dark blue, blooming like a bruise as she tried to hide the way my evasion hurt her.

Every time I sidestepped and ignored her, I swore I could feel the way her blood billed, and her aggravation made her warm from head to toe. I got hard at the way she flushed a pretty pink when I pissed her off, but I wasn’t going out of my way to tell her that. I wasn’t going out of my way to tell her anything.
