BookWhisperer Rating:


Way too young, eleven year old Tucker Creed and his six year old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. Creed then decides he’s going to do everything in his limited power to shield his Sylvie from her ordeal. So he does and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages.

They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. Sylvie goes to their special place, Creed never shows and she doesn’t see him again until it’s too late.

With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it. To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges that very few can break through. So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process.

our thoughts

Man, I love me some Kristen Ashley reading, it makes me joyful. I absolutely adored this book because it was different than the other Ashley books that I have read. First, the other books that I have read by Ashley have always had the couple meet and a relationship builds from there. However, this plot has a different twist because Sylvie and Creed meet during childhood, were separated, and then brought back together again. Also, Ashley presented us with a different type of woman in this book. Sylvie is a kick-butt kind of woman who can fight her own battles and doesn’t need a man to do it for her. But her man, Creed who is so sexy, returns, how could she not want him by her side.

Creed is the ultimate hero in my eyes. He is Sylvie’s heart, her hero, her best friend, and her protector, oh and he is super hot! Their background story is a heart-wrencher and left me as the reader emotionally drained. It made me want the absolute best for them because of all that they have been through. However, that background made them who they are, how they built their life, survived their life, and how glorious it was when they met again.

I loved the flashbacks to their childhood and the moments that they spent together. I actually craved them so that I could get to know the characters more. I also loved that Creed was an honorable boy, teenager, and man while watching Sylvie grow up. He protected her, loved her, but knew that she was too young to start a serious relationship until she was ready.
