I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.
I’m in love with Connor…so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.
But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle…for both of them.

Oh my goodness!!! Emma Scott’s word are magic! I have to admit- was nervous to read this book because it’s a love triangle but it really isn’t your “typical” love triangle. If you are a person who has sworn off love triangles just trust me when I say you will love this book.
It’s so hard to talk about this story without spoiling anything so I don’t want to say too much about the plot or why this love triangle isn’t your every day love triangle. I will say that this novel has all the elements of a swoon-worthy, classic Emma Scott story while still being completely original.
The romance was magical, the angst was never OTT, and it left me hoping and praying that we get book two ASAP!
I think what I loved most about this book is that as the reader, you’re never left in the dark. There’s no “big secret” we’re waiting to find out. We’re in-the-know from the beginning, and we get to watch all the events play out. Autumn’s story took us through many ups and downs, and the whole time I was waiting for everything to come crashing down. The three main characters play a dangerous game, and heartbreak is inevitable.
The story of Autumn, Connor, and Weston is so addictive! It only took me about two days to read it. I literally could not put it down! I just wanted more, and more, and more. By the end, my heart was racing and the tears were pouring! I don’t know how I’ll survive while waiting for the next book!
