About the Book
Falling in love with Gabe Anderson was as easy as breathing. Fighting my feelings for my brother’s best friend was agonizingly hard. I never imagined giving in to my desire for him would cause such a destructive ripple effect. That kiss was my grasp at a lifeline—something, anything to hold me steady in my crumbling life. Now, I have to suffer with the fallout while trying to convince him it’s all worth the consequences.
Guilt overwhelms me—over what I’ve done, the lives I’ve taken, and more than anything, over my feelings for Skye Hawke. Craving my best friend’s little sister is insanely self-destructive. It never should have happened, but since the moment she kissed me, I haven’t been able to get her out of my mind. If I take what I want, I risk losing everything. If I don’t, I’ll lose her and a piece of myself. The raging storm threatening to rain down on the city is nothing compared to the one that will come from my decision.
Love can be torture, but sometimes, love is the only thing that can save you.

Skye fell in love with Gabe when she was sixteen. He's her brothers best friend and a part of her family since they were little. One kiss, and rejection, ruins the easy relationship they have. Now she'll try to convince him that their love is worth whatever they have to endure and overcome.
Skye was a tortured soul after the loss of her twin, her other half, the calm reason to her wild ways. Given the circumstances, Skye was amazingly strong. She knew what she wanted and was determined to make it work. She knows the possible consequences of her actions. The love of family is wonderful, but sometimes a different kind of love is what you need.
Gabe is just as tortured as Skye. He mourns the loss of her sister as well. He hates himself for his past. He knows he's not good enough for her and what it would do to his relationship with his best friend if he ever found out. Is that enough to keep his distance though? I loved that when it was most important, he stepped up. I really felt for him with all the self doubt he had and his fear of what they could both lose. When trouble comes knocking during a huge storm, there's nothing that can stop him from saving Sykes.
Wow...this is book two in this amazing new series and it's so worth picking it up! Written in dual pov, you get to delve into both sides and really get a good feel for what each character is thinking. The struggle they both face is strong and while they handle it each in their own way, they work through it. I loved every minute of this book and can't wait for the next in the series!
