Can two afflicted strangers from the dark side, help each other back to the light?
Willow Steele is a survivor - barely.
Her mother was murdered in front of her.
Eight years old. Nowhere and nobody to call home. Willow did what she had to in order to survive life.
Faced with a straightjacket, a bare cell at Ferndale and the prospect of going cold turkey from the vices that have been keeping her alive, Willow is furious. She wants her drugs. She wants her freedom. She wants out of this place.
Hunter Edwards is an addict.
Just one taste, to impress a girl, and heroin ended up taking every bit of self-control he'd ever owned.
Six months later he is hooked and spiralling out of control. Break and enters, car accidents, trouble with the law. His mother and the cops sign him into Ferndale as a last resort before shipping him off to the army.
That's where he sees her. Willow. The girl in the cell.
The dark haired, blue eyed angel that steals his heart.
Can Willow & Hunter help each other through the hardest fight of their lives?
Or will they both fall harder than ever before?
This is a dark romance. It is not for the faint hearted. You've been warned...
Your mother is murdered right in front of you ... eight years old. There is no one else. Your world is upside down so you survive .. you survive in a life of drugs and alcohol early with a bee line straight into rehab. Willow doesn't want to be here. Who are these people to say she is getting clean. No one knows her pain and no one has ever been there for her. Now this ... She wants out.
An addict ... Hunter Edwards gets hooked by trying to make an impression. Hitting rock bottom he breaks every law falling into a deep dark despair to get his next fix. But then in this hell there is her ... The girl sitting there alone in the cell ..
This is a rough and dark read. If you have triggers of abuse in all forms then this is NOT for you. There are some definite holy wow moments and you have got to be kidding me. BUT why the 3.5 stars ... well it just didn't put me into the world of something somewhat believable. I also didn't care of the peer pressure of the situations. There are some side characters that play parts in both of Willow and Hunters lives .. Nate and Audrey.
