In a city where image is everything, Gabriella turns heads for all the wrong reasons.
The marks that slash across her neck and face turn people away. But I see the beauty that lies beneath, feel a kinship to her pain.
I regret the way she found me—mugged and left for dead. I should walk away, follow the rules, but I can’t. I want to see her again. There’s only one problem.
My brother convinced her I’m gay.
I use that lie to my advantage, persuade her to be my pretend girlfriend, to help protect my fake-sexual identity from my judgmental family. But what starts as a shameless excuse to be near her leads to crossed lines and midnight confessions.
I’m not who I led her to believe. I’m sin wrapped in silk. Betrayal masked by beauty.
And she’s not the only one with scars…

My only fear is that in making her forget, she might remember.– Kingston
Not my first read by the author but she is very new to me, this is only the 2nd book I’ve read by her and boy did I fall in love with this one as much as I did with Book #1! There is something said about the hero and heroine having their own issues that are still lingering when they get together and the chemistry explodes. Also the title makes sense pretty fast and then you realize why and you get excited that it does make sense but also sad for the hero in the same time. This isn’t a typical relationship between hero and heroine. The hero alone has his own share of frailly drama and bullshit along with a personal defect he is dealing with. It honestly isn’t but that is how he sees himself. The heroine isn’t usual as well, she has her own share of drama and daemons except hers is displayed for the world every day. You wouldn’t think that these two would be a pair but broken people heal other broken people. Their chemistry is off the charts, there is humor in this and it will make you chuckle and kind of have angst for the heroine to finally figure it out. ALSO he calls her Bee so there is that! If you could ever FEEL the words this will be that book!
BUT secrets are not meant to be kept. And these secrets are not as expected and even more painful when you get to it all. It’s heartbreaking and bittersweet, I cried multiple times in this and my heart was affected in all aspects! GAH! This book truly moved me, from the characters, the story, the good and bad…truly a addicting book to dive into! P.S. start with Book #1 you will equally love it!
“I’ve thought so long and hard about this moment,” he whispers. “About where I would start if I got the chance to touch you. The roadmaps I’d follow in order to experience every part of you.”-Kingston
