This book had me in my feelings from start to finish.
Keyne and Jasper have lead very different lives, but one tragic incident brings them together forever. Now they depend on each other emotionally more than ever. But their pain and trauma takes on a for neither of them is ready for.
My heart was hurting from page one because I can’t even imagine the kind of tragedy that took happened to both Jas and Keyne. It’s difficult to come out of such an enormous loss, but they had each other and that was the reason the came out.
I love Jasper with all my heart. He took on a 17 year old girl who was shattered and made sure she survived her loss in a healthy way. He even put away his trauma to take care of Keyne, which isn’t the healthiest but I admire the world out of him for putting Keyne first. It’s not easy to do something that huge but he did.
Keyne is so so strong. I admire her and grew so fond of her through this story. Of course, she is still a teenager and had her immature moments but I really think she is such an amazing person. When she realises, she is not alone in this world; emotionally, physically or even in her kink, it was a glorious sight to behold.
This story is very very emotional and touches on a lot of taboo topics. I absolutely adore the way Tamsen wrote it and gave this story the justice that it needed. I have become a HUGE Tamsen Parker fan now and I cannot wait to see what she brings out next.

Keyne O’Connell leads a charmed life. But one dark summer night before her senior year robs her of everyone she loves, thrusting her into the custody of her boyfriend’s intimidating, much older brother.
Jasper Andersson is not a good man. His business dealings are barely legal. He’s a womanizer and a drug user. He has no interest in becoming Keyne’s guardian, although given her limited options, he doesn’t have much of a choice. And when his feelings become far from platonic, he must protect her at whatever the cost…even from himself.
The thoughts, the urges, the dreams he had about her.
He’d take that secret to his goddamn grave.
