thoughts together about it From the summary, you can probably guess what happens to Raine that is unforgiveable , but I won t reveal it in case you didn t figure it out.I ve read a lot of books where this type of event has happened in the plot, including a book I read not long ago which I ended up DNF g Whether I like this type of book or not depends largely on how the victim reacts Bear n mind, I know there are different reactions out there, but when a person just totally goes off the rails and does nothing to help themselves or move past it, I have a hard time connecting with them Raine was the perfect example of the type of heroine I love to read in this time of issue.She did not spend the entire book whining about her circumstances and let me tell you, she could have This event causes HER to be ostracized, kicked out of her family s home and pretty much sleeping in her car with nowhere to go and no money to take care of herself She does not wallow in her circumstances though She has pride in herself She works hard to rise above She does what she has to do She was strong and determined I absolutely loved her Then there was Jarrett, the older brother of Cameron who was involved in the event Jarrett was an amazing hero for Raine Aside from being amazingly sexy, tattooed and all around gorgeous, he was sweet and caring He is the only person who gives her a chance, lifts a finger to help her, and it s not his problem to take care of But it doesn t matter The scenes between these two were also very very hot I loved the writing in this story, loved the plot, fell in love with the two main charactersjust loved everything It was touching, tragic, and then sweet Kudos to the author for taking on such a difficult topic and doing such an amazing job with it Loved this book It should be stated that this book contains mature themes and as such probably shouldn t be read by someone really young, or anyone who has issues with rape and the trauma that comes from an experience like that Normally for me, given personal experience, that would be a no go for me, but I stepped out of my comfort zone in order to read this for two reasons It s JC Valentine and any book I ve read by her hasn t let me down yet, and secondly, Raine is my daughter s name and just based off that It should be stated that this book contains mature themes and as such probably shouldn t be read by someone really young, or anyone who has issues with rape and the trauma that comes from an experience like that Normally for me, given personal experience, that would be a no go for me, but I stepped out of my comfort zone in order to read this for two reasons It s JC Valentine and any book I ve read by her hasn t let me down yet, and secondly, Raine is my daughter s name and just based off that I wanted to read it so much I was willing to dive in head first without reservations.I was not disappointed This story follows Raine and Jarret, two characters from seemingly two different sides of the tracks, yet brought together by one life altering experience and on their road to finding their own personal happily ever after, we get to see them change, and grow and learn to love again, despite all of the challenges and darkness that seemed to mar their way at the start The characters were very well developed and the pacing was out of this world It all ran together so smooth, one minute I was ten percent in and I swear I blinked and was almost done It was that great of a book in both of these ways Raine my heart went out to her Right off the jump, it just ACHED for her and everything that she was going through, but I also wanted to high five my kindle because her strength, what made her such an engaging character, it was beautiful to see She had the heart of a mother long before she was one, if that makes sense No matter what obstacle, how rough things got, she never lost sight of who she was and she didn t change in a drastic way that would have turned me off her She made me love her right from the start until the end Jarret I love characters that come alive on the page, especially male ones that are flawed, yet beautiful because of those flaws Was he perfect No He made a few missteps in this story, things that made me wanna smack sense into him, but ones he also acknowledged and attempted to change, which spoke volumes to me at how REAL these characters really were He was not a fairy tale prince, at least not in the traditional sense, but from the way I would write a prince, he was definitely that andHe had a heart that was just so beautiful that it was hard not to fall in love with him instantly, even if he was screwing up The issues that were spoken about in this book, the ones I alluded to at the beginning of the review and even ones you ll see the deeper you go into it, the author handled them with such grace that it made me love herShe didn t trivialize any of it, gloss over it or try and write around it She opened the door, let you see behind the velvet rope into a mind of someone who has been through it and shined a light on what a lot of women face, both reporting it after the fact, or choosing not to and also what they experience during the act and after it for years to come My hat is off to her for handling these things the way she did Fantastic and she s earned evenof my respect.Thank you JC for writing such a beautiful, heart wrenching yet real tale of love and the sometimes rocky road that we face to get to where we need to be It was an experience I will take with me always and a book I will definitely be reading over and over again You have outdone yourself Definite 5 Read for me I would love to give it , but 5 will have to do for now 3 I m not sure this review can even do the book justice, but I m definitely gonna try Just pick it up You won t be disappointed J.C Valentine sure knows how to create a male that is not only drool worthy in looks, but a dream come true in every way imaginable Leading characters like Raine and Jarret are ones that are unforgettable, enjoyable in every way and have the ability to break your heart as well as heal it Their story is not a traditional one, hell it may not even be one that you hear of in this lifetime But it is one that is worth reading, one that has topped the charts for me, and made me believe that ev J.C Valentine sure knows how to create

is the light that pulls her through As Cameron s older brother, the situation couldn t becomplicated if the two ended up secret siblingsimagine THAT Jarret can t help but feel like a man in the wrong

through the pain with these two, through the rain they just might find their sun.xo CassiaFollow Me On FacebookSee Reviews and More I have read other books from Mrs Valentine and couldn t wait to read

story This is a story of a girl who was somewhat an outcast in school Invisible, not ugly but not stunning Where the most popular boy in school suddenly takes interest in her You see where this is going A cruel joke that goes way beyond some popular boy who accepts a bet Unbeknownst to her, her whole life changes prom night She finds herself alone, defeated, cast away and called a whore She is forced to pick up the pieces and try to move on with her life However it s not an easy road This is a story about a brooding guy who s life changes the second an angelic looking girl stumbles into his

he has towards her is something he can t deny Raine has a hard time accepting help and after what she s been through I completely admired her strength and determination to make it on her own However, when Jarret really insinuates himself into her life she has no choice but to accept what he s offering Even if it s just for a little while Jarret is amazingly supportive, patient and caring He is that kind of guy you hope your sons grow up to be Ones that do the right thing even when everyone around them is telling them different He didn t have to help Raine or be her lifeline if you will but

he is all heart When everything comes to a head will Jarret be able to quiet the little doubts he has Which side will he choose when he finds out what really happened that faithful night Will he be able to walk away from everything he s known for Raine I love when a book gives you a sense of growth within the characters The author did a wonderful job developing these characters It made them feel
